This is available on the AMG line premium version and costs just under £8000.

The classic style of the EQS

For those who like the classic style of the EQS but with a sporty focus, then the Luxury model adds new upholstery that utilises ship-deck wood, a heated steering wheel, 22-inch alloy wheels and comfort seats with the firm’s comfort headrests.

One of the options is the rear luxury lounge package which adds electrically adjustable rear seats with a massage function, there’s also a rear armrest with a wireless smartphone charging dock and climate control for those in the rear seats.

All contract hire versions of the EQS have a three-year subscription to the firm’s charging network plus a one-year subscription to a wrapping charging network.

Since this is the firm’s first all-electric luxury saloon, it’s an impressive EV and prices start at £99,995.

That price tag alone means that drivers should look at leasing the Mercedes EQS and the first deliveries are expected later this year.
