The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS has arrived, with notable fanfare. As the first all-electric luxury sedan from Mercedes, this sleek beauty is touted as “the most aerodynamic production car in the world.” Certainly, sparks are flying in the car world, with aficionados enthusing about everything from the EQS’s design, performance and technology to its impressive, futuristic interior.

At motorauthority.com, Martin Padgett lauds the EQS’s “build quality and serenity,” noting, “It’s softly sprung, sensually padded and upholstered, and graced with the incar equivalent of an IMAX.”

In the words of motortrend.com’s Alexander Stoklosa, “The EQS feels as special as its gas-fed equivalent, the standard-bearer S-Class limo; this one only happens to be electric, and Benz masterfully leverages quiet, swift electric powertrain technology to deliver an even better luxury experience.”

Finally, at caranddriver.com, automotive journalist Eric Stafford declares, “Its curvaceous body effortlessly slips through the air for maximum efficiency, and its palatial cabin boasts luxurious appointments and state-of-the-art features for the all-important wow factor.”

Wow indeed.
