Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV Review: Redefining Luxury In The EV Space

This is the era of sustainable mobility and electric vehicles are the flagbearers in this period of change. EVs in general feel quite premium and feature excellent performance, however, if the EV is made by Mercedes-Maybach, it’s bound to be a special one. Yes, we are referring to the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV, the first production EV to bear the Maybach badge.

Mercedes-Maybach is a brand that’s known for producing extravagant and extremely luxurious cars. With the automotive world witnessing a significant shift towards electric vehicles (EVs), it was only a matter of time before Maybach produced one of their own. In this review, we delve into the various aspects of the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV, examining its design, performance, technology, and more.

Design & Styling

Drawing inspiration from both the futuristic elements of the EQ series and the timeless elegance of Maybach, this SUV makes a bold statement on the road. Its styling is a masterclass in modern luxury, featuring a sleek, aerodynamic silhouette that reduces drag and increases efficiency. Buyers can pick from 10 single-tone and six dual-tone colour options.

In order to enhance aerodynamic efficiency, it features a black panel up front instead of a traditional grille. However, the panel features vertical chrome strips that closely resemble a premium chrome grille. The signature EQS headlamps flank the black panel and are connected by an LED strip.

The 22-inch monoblock Maybach wheels add to the vehicle’s majestic presence. The silver window outline, chrome door handle elements, and detailed side-steps further add to the styling. The rear end is characterized by a minimalist design, with the LED taillights connected by a light strip, giving it a futuristic appeal. The abundance of chrome in the bumper increases its premium appeal.


Inside, the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV continues to impress with a cabin that combines cutting-edge technology with exquisite materials. The interior is adorned with premium leather that’s sustainably processed, piano-black paneling, and metallic accents. This creates an ambience of refined luxury.

The spacious cabin offers ample legroom and headroom, ensuring comfort for all occupants. The attention to detail is evident in every aspect, from the meticulously crafted seats to the ambient lighting that can be customized to suit individual preferences.

Luxury & Technology

The Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV carries over the advanced MBUX Hyperscreen from the standard Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV. The Hyperscreen seamlessly integrates three displays into one. The rose gold surrounds for the gauges on the digital display remind you that you’re in a Maybach.

The second row is designed for those who demand the best. Passengers can enjoy massaging seats, personal 11.6-inch entertainment screens, heated & cooled cup holders, wireless smartphone charging, and a tab to control everything. In addition, you get the best and the most comfortable seats.

The 15-speaker Burmester audio system delivers an exceptional experience with 4D surround sound. While both seats have the reclining feature, the right side rear seat has a one-touch recline function. The front seat moves forward, the headrest goes down, the footrests move into place, and the rear seat reclines. This is a choreography that’s extremely entertaining to watch.

Electric Powertrain: Performance

Under the bonnet, the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV features an advanced and powerful electric drivetrain. It features a 107.88kWh battery pack that sends power to two electric motors, one at the front and one at the rear. The dual-motor setup provides all-wheel drive capability, ensuring optimal traction and stability in various driving conditions.

With a combined output of 649hp and 950Nm, the EQS SUV clocks the 0-100km/h run in just 4.4 seconds and will continue accelerating hard until its top speed of 210km/h. These performance figures become even more impressive when you consider its weight of over 2,700 kilograms. Despite having sports car-like acceleration, the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV is tailored to provide a smooth and serene ride. 

When the comfort driving mode is selected, the suspension goes into the Maybach profile, putting it into its softest setting. The adaptive air suspension system adjusts the ride height and damping characteristics based on road conditions and driving modes. This ensures a comfortable and composed driving experience.

Electric Powertrain: Range & Charging

When it comes to an EV, range and charging time is of utmost importance. The EQS SUV’s 107.88kWh battery pack gives it a claimed range of around 600 kilometres according to WLTP standards.

The SUV also supports fast charging, with 200kW DC chargers taking the battery state of charge from 10% to 80% in just 31 minutes. AC charging from a wall socket takes just under 12 hours to fully charge an empty battery. 

Sustainability & Environmental Impact

As an electric vehicle, Mercedes-Maybach designed the EQS SUV with sustainability in mind. The electric drivetrain produces zero tailpipe emissions, contributing to cleaner air. The use of recycled and sustainable materials in the construction of the vehicle further underscores Mercedes’ commitment to environmental responsibility.


The Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV brings new levels of luxury and performance to the EV industry. For discerning buyers seeking an EV with an opulent interior, green under the skin, and yet performs like a sports car, the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV stands out as a compelling choice.
