Mercedes-Benz has redesigned its flagship electric sedan, the EQS. For the new model year, the EQS has undergone some modest visual modifications, and its larger battery pack now allows the car to travel farther between charges. Apart from adjusting the regenerative braking system, the German carmaker has updated several comfort elements for passengers in the backseat. With bookings commencing on April 25, the new EQS is expected to go on sale in international markets shortly. According to Mercedes-Benz, despite the latest modifications, the base price of the model will remain the same. Although the brand has yet to announce a launch date, it is anticipated that the EV will eventually be sold in India. Read on to learn more.

The highlight of the revamped model is its larger battery pack. The all-new EQS gets a 118kWh battery pack, up from the previous capacity of 108.4kWh. As a result, the electric sedan's average range has increased by 82 kilometres. The EQS 450 4MATIC EV is now expected to travel up to 799 kilometres, as opposed to the previous claim of 717 kilometres. Meanwhile, the 450+ version promises an even better range of 822 kilometres on a single charge. It is important to note that these claimed ranges are based on the WLTP cycle and may vary depending on the country. The EV is also equipped with a Disconnect Unit (DCU), which, in all-wheel drive variants, may turn off the front motor based on the driving conditions. Additional changes to the vehicle include an upgraded regenerative braking system with a faster deceleration rate.

One of the most noticeable cosmetic updates for the 2025 EQS is on the front end. The fascia now has a reworked black panel with chrome slats, giving it a more traditional appearance as compared to the previous model. The new EQS also features an upright Mercedes star on the front hood, something the previous model did not have. Besides this, the sedan shares design features with the outgoing model.

With the Extended Rear Luxury Lounge Pack, a unique slanted footrest is now available at the back. Moreover, the front passenger seat may be folded forward, and the rear backrest can be tilted up to 38 degrees, providing even more comfort for passengers in the back. Mercedes also claims to have added 5mm of padding to the backrest of the rear seats. In addition, there is pneumatic seat depth adjustment, neck and shoulder heating in the back, and seat heating as optional features. Along with other new features including Dolby Atmos, a YouTube web app, and a digital trip guide, the EQS now comes standard with the MBUX Hyperscreen. The Automatic Lane Change (ALC) feature allows the EQS to automatically overtake the car in front and initiate lane changes within a speed range of 80–140km/h.

In other news, the carmaker is gearing up to launch several new models later this year. These include the E-Class, AMG C63 E Performance F1 Edition, and the AMG S63 E Performance.
