Mercedes-Benz’s upcoming electric sedan, the EQS, has been spied testing for the first time.
While the prototype may be donned in heavy camouflage (see carwow.co.uk’s rendering at the bottom for a glimpse into the production model), it’s hard to miss the EQS’ four-door coupe shape – a departure from the three-box sedan layout traditionally employed by the related S-Class limousine.
Up front there appears to be a wider, more refined version of the EQC’s black grille, flanked by LED headlights. At the rear, the aforementioned coupe roofline is present – no information can be gleaned from the taillights, which are do not reflect the final production car’s.
Additionally, the prototype’s door handles are pop-out units – similar to those rumoured to feature on the next-generation S-Class.
The Mercedes-Benz EQS is set to go on sale in 2021, underpinned by an all-new modular electric-only platform. It’ll employ a large capacity battery and multi-motor setup to deliver a range of over 500km and a power output upwards of 350-400kW.
