Mercedes-Benz is rapidly expanding its electric EQ range, which will be topped by the large EQS SUV.

First revealed in official “spy photos” a few weeks back, these latest images captured by our spy photography agency give us a closer look at the EQS SUV’s body, as well as a first look at its interior.

The exterior has a fairly conventional SUV silhouette, with much more upright sides than the slinky four-door coupe-style EQS sedan.

On the inside, the EQS SUV could easily be mistaken for the latest S-Class sedan. There’s a large piano black sweep stretching from the centre console up the dashboard and housing the portrait infotainment system.

Ahead of the driver, there’s a large free-standing digital instrumentation display.

Under the skin the EQS crossover will ride on the company’s new Electric Vehicle Architecture (EVA), which will make its debut under the EQS sedan next year and will also be used for the smaller EQE sedan and crossover.

Its EQS liftback counterpart will have a claimed 700km of electric range under WLTP standards, identical to the 2019 Vision EQS concept that previewed it. That car featured a 100kWh lithium-ion battery and was said to hit 100km/h from a standing start in 4.5 seconds.
