Mercedes-Benz shows off EQS silhouette in latest teaser

Mercedes-Benz has started to show more details of the EQS ahead of the official reveal in April and it looks like the car has remained true to the concept it’s based on. Two different teaser images appeared on Twitter, one on Mercedes-Benz’s global account and another on parent company Daimler’s. Both show off quite a bit of the EQS’ curves and wedgelike shape, hinting at its aero-focused exterior and coupe-like silhouette.

Immediately you’ll notice the curvaceous side profile, and short deck lid, and front end. That allows the massive greenhouse to stand out, meaning the EQS could have an expansive cabin. This is likely the result of the car being developed as an electric vehicle from the ground up on Mercedes’ Electric Vehicle Architecture (EVA). That means there’s more space to utilize for the interior because engineers don’t have to take an internal combustion engine into account while the massive battery is positioned under the passenger compartment.

When it arrives later this year, the EQS will be the first Mercedes-Benz vehicle on the EVA platform. That architecture will underpin more dedicated including the EQE and two SUVs. The EQS will also be the first Mercedes model to feature the new MBUX Hyperscreen, which is a massive display housing three screens under one glass panel spanning the entire dash.
