Mercedes EQS Concept Car

Merc’s S-class limos have blazed a high-tech trail since 1972 and now the EQS concept picks up that baton and makes like Usain Bolt late for a bus. The result is a vision of what the large electric saloon might look like come 2021'ish, and pretty damn cool it is too. What's more, Mercedes have just announced the EQS will have a range of over 435 miles, more than main competitor Tesla Model S Long Range. Sadly the EQS isn't on the roads yet, so lease a future luxury right now. And if this Merc appeals, then the cool saloons available to lease in the UK right now, like the Porsche Taycan or Tesla Model S, will be right up your autobahn.

Starlight express
A ‘lightbelt’ rings the EQS’s gorgeous two-tone body like a particularly high-tech go-faster stripe. Light-based highlights include digital headlamps with twin holographic lenses, a digital front grille that can wave at pedestrians and a rear light graphic made of 229 stars – just like the three-pronged Mercedes logo.


Like a yacht. On wheels
The EQS interior takes inspiration from luxury yachts and goes large on a small environmental footprint. There’s crystal white microfibre trim made from recycled bottles, artificial leather that looks just like the real thing and roof lining crafted from recycled plastic fished from the sea. And just check out those slim-backed floating chairs, like meerkats in white tuxedos. Very posh.


That’s infotainment
Mercedes’ excellent MBUX infotainment system gets a future twist in the EQS, with a curved iPad-type display that follows the sweep of the rakish dash in the middle, and smaller siblings on each armrest to control functions like seats. Projecting info directly onto the pinstriped dash is a neat trick, and there aren’t even any mirrors – instead, cameras do the job.
