The New 2022 Mercedes-EQ can be ordered right now. Two models of the first all-electric luxury saloon from Mercedes-EQ can be ordered from today, with prices starting at 106,374.10 euros and 135,529.10 euros respectively. The EQS 450+ with 245 kW (NEDC combined electrical consumption: 18.9-16.2 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions: 0 g/km) and the EQS 580 4MATIC with 385 kW (NEDC combined electrical consumption: 19.6-17.6 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions: 0 g/km)2 in Germany from the end of September, in the USA in the fourth quarter. Metallic paint and leather upholstery are standard in Germany. The EQS is the first model to be based on the modular architecture for luxury and executive-class electric vehicles. The EQS combines technology, design, functionality and connectivity in a completely new way. The EQS is the first Mercedes-Benz to offer the option of activating completely new vehicle functions via over-the-air updates (OTA) in many areas.
Mercedes-Benz Bank offers private and business customers attractive financing and leasing conditions for the EQS, including a subscription scheme. Two vehicle insurance policies including electrical protection can be taken out online. These incorporate special services such as all-risk coverage for the battery, or insurance that includes the charging cable. The telematics insurance InScore2 represents particularly good value. With this, up to 30 percent of the premium can be saved through your own driving behaviour.
New in the Mercedes me Store: OTA functions
The EQS is the first Mercedes-Benz to offer the option of activating completely new vehicle functions via over-the-air updates (OTA) in many areas. The launch offer:
The customisation package with the additional sound experience “Roaring Pulse” and several mini-games (Tetris, Sudoku, Pairs, Shuffle Puck). The package also includes additional DIGITAL LIGHT animations for opening and closing (12 months’ use included in the purchase price, after which it can be extended via Mercedes me for 89 euros1).
The two special driving modes ‘beginner driver mode’ and ‘valet service mode’ (package price: 50 euros1).
The ‘highlight mode’: The vehicle introduces itself and its equipment highlights, activated by the “Hey Mercedes” voice assistant
The range of OTA functions is being successively expanded. This means that following the purchase and initial new-car configuration, some of the features of the EQS can be adapted according to personal preferences. This also includes enabling the rear axle steering with a ten-degree steering angle. In addition to the conventional purchasing of individual functions, customers can also take out subscriptions. Temporary activations and free trial periods are also planned.
After the purchase in the Mercedes me Store, the new OTA function is enabled in the background. A corresponding notification appears in the central display. The communication module installed in the vehicle transmits the data by radio.
Exclusive special model at launch: Edition 1
For a limited period, the new EQS is also offered as the Edition 1 (additional charge: from 18,433.10 euros1): on the outside, the AMG Line and 21-inch wheels add a sporty touch to the vehicle. Interior highlights include a colour scheme only available for the Edition 1 and premium comfort features.

3 cm (21-inch) AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels

Even more intelligent technology: the key optional extras
The standard rear axle steering with a steering angle of up to 4.5° contributes to the easy-to-handle and dynamic impression of the EQS. Alternatively, rear axle steering with an angle of up to 10° can be ordered (1547 euros1). This makes a turning circle of 10.9 metres possible for the EQS, which is over five metres long.
Pre-installation for the INTELLIGENT PARK PILOT is part of the Parking Package with remote parking functions (1844.50 euros1). This prepares the EQS for automated valet service (AVP, SAE level 4). Together with the required special equipment and the corresponding Connect service, the vehicle has the onboard technology to park and unpark fully automatically without driver involvement. This is conditional upon car parks being equipped with AVP infrastructure and national legislation allowing such operations.
