Either way, the EQS will be built on a brand new, modular EV platform. Steel, aluminum and carbon fibers will be used in the construction, and in addition to EQS, this platform will be used by other electric models with the three-pointed star sign.
The EQS will be produced together with the next generation of the regular S-Class, at Mercedes’ new factory in Stuttgart (“Factory 56”), and one of its rivals will be the electric Porsche Taycan.
For now, it is known that the future serial EQS will have two electric motors, as well as all-wheel drive. The concept had 350 kW / 476 hp and 760 Nm.
