New EV Architecture
The EQS shares the same level of luxury expected from an S-Class; however, the car is based on a new purpose-built Electric Vehicle Architecture. Not only does this change the look of the car, the EQS wheelbase, track and batteries are variable, which means this new platform can be adapted for a variety of upcoming electric vehicles such as new large sedans and SUVs. The architecture is also flexible enough to handle new battery technology as it becomes available. In fact, engineers are already at work on Mercedes-Benz Modular Architecture for compact and midsize models — vehicles on this upcoming platform are slated to arrive in 2025.
