Mercedes-Benz EQS

Winner of Best Luxury EV

Mercedes-Benz EQS

The EQS is Mercedes-Benz’s flagship luxury EV. With a gigantic 108kWh battery and aerodynamic shape, it will comfortably achieve a 600km range, and with a bit of care will go farther than 800km. You can choose from a range of motors, with the range-topping AWD offering 560kW of power and more than 1,000Nm torque.

Luxury abounds inside the EQS cabin, which is dominated by the Hyperscreen, a 377 square inch piece of glass that is actually made up of three different screens. With doors that can open and close automatically, plush leathers, plenty of space and double glazed windows, the Mercedes was always going to be a serious contender for the Luxury EV category.

Voter Geraldine Herbert said that ‘with advanced technology and unrivalled comfort the Mercedes EQS makes everything else in a rapidly developing marketplace feel a bit dated.’
