The Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 is an EV fit for kings and queens
On the exterior, the front is characterised by the brand-typical black panel with vertical, chrome-plated trim strips in a three-dimensional depth look. The large black panel is also closed for the first time.
While the high-tech element for the radar sensors is fully integrated and no longer visible, chrome-plated, filigree slats can be found on the air intake of the bumper. The classic “Maybach” lettering is discreetly incorporated into a chrome-plated decorative strip, which forms a unit with the continuous light strip of the standard Digital Light headlights.
The Maybach pattern with several small brand emblems can also be found in trim parts of the side bumper. As a further greeting, an animated projection of the Maybach pattern shines in all four doors.
The Mercedes-Maybach EQS also rolls on exclusive 21 or 22-inch alloy and forged wheels with specially-designed wheel hub caps. Another eye-catcher is the standard running board, which is illuminated in the dark. The treads are made of anodised aluminium, which echoes the pinstripe look of the black panel front.
At the rear, the rear lights comprise a continuous light strip with a two-part helix. While the lights are animated across the entire width, there are also chrome trim elements on the tailgate, on the rear apron and the spoiler lip.
Last but not least, the special appearance of the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV also includes the brand-typical two-tone paintwork with a filigree pinstripe.
Inside, highlights include the standard MBUX Hyperscreen with “zero layer” and Mercedes- Maybach-specific start-up animations on all three displays, two 11.6-inch displays on the backrests of the front seats, standard MBUX High-End Rear Seat Entertainment, the MBUX rear tablet which can also be used outside the vehicle, Maybach Exclusive Nappa leather, adaptive rear lighting, a High Efficiency Particulate Air filter, as well as active scenting to make sure that the cabin always smells good.
The sound system includes 15 speakers: two front bass speakers in the front footwell, one midrange and one tweeter in each door, two 3D speakers in the headliner, two surround speakers in the luggage compartment cover and a center speaker in the instrument panel. There are also two exciters in each seat. The direct reproduction of structure-borne noise in the seats makes the listening experience four-dimensional.
Last but not least, powering the Maybach EQS 680 are two permanently excited synchronous motors that produce 650 hp and 950 Nm of torque, enabling the SUV to travel up to 600 km with a fully charged battery, and accelerate from 0 to 100 in 4.4 seconds with a top speed of 210 km/h. Also part of the package is an AWD system which comes as standard.
