The Mercedes-Maybach EQS concept will join a number of other electric vehicles like the EQS electric luxury sedan, EQS SUV, and the EQE SUV, all of which are slated to hit the market next year.

Despite its status as a concept, the Mercedes-Maybach is near production

“The Concept Mercedes-Maybach EQS represents the transformation of the tradition-rich luxury brand into a more progressive, all-electric future...The near-production concept car represents proof that state-of-the-art electric drive technology and pioneering infotainment with MBUX Hyperscreen combine perfectly with hallmark Maybach craftsmanship and an exquisite interior.”

Philipp Schiemer, Head of Top End Vehicle Group at Mercedes-Benz AG

While the German manufacturer has yet to announce a full spec list for the vehicle, the assumption is that it will be similar to the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV, which boasted a 108 kWh battery pack, all-wheel drive, among other features.
