Despite the camo, Mercedes’ flagship EV can’t hide its striking shape.
The rumors were true – Mercedes is indeed planning a range-topping EV that will likely go by the EQS moniker once it will be launched early next decade. Spotted up close and personal by our spies, the heavily camouflaged prototype was trying to hide its dramatic shape underneath the disguise, but it’s pretty obvious we’re dealing with something quite special. With a low roofline and a swoopy shape – this isn’t your typical Mercedes as it looks sleeker even than two of the company’s most attractive cars, the CLS and the AMG GT Four-Door Coupe.
It might have a few things in common with the next-generation S-Class (W223), but it seems it’ll eschew the traditional sedan body style for a more practical five-door liftback judging by the prototype’s derrière. Speaking of the rear end, those oval cutouts in the camo at the rear bumper might suggest the car had exhausts, therefore a combustion engine, but our spies are confident we’re dealing with a pure electric vehicle.
