2024 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV gets a bigger battery, range boost

Max McDee, 17 June 2024

Mercedes-Benz is updating its EQS SUV for the 2024 model year with a significantly enhanced EPA range compared to its 2023 predecessor. This boost is enabled by a larger 118 kWh battery pack, a sizable upgrade from the previous 108.4 kWh unit.

The rear-wheel-drive EQS 450+ SUV now flaunts an EPA-estimated range of 339 miles, marking a substantial 34-mile increase over the 2023 model. Meanwhile, the all-wheel-drive variants, namely the 450 4Matic and 580 4Matic, offer a range of 330 miles. The opulent Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 4Matic manages to squeeze out 321 miles from the larger battery pack. Interestingly, the 450+ model sees a smaller range increase due to its now larger 21-inch wheels compared to the previous 20-inch ones.

Energy consumption has slightly increased across the board. The EQS 450+ SUV is rated to have an efficiency of 2.6 miles/kWh (4.18 km/kWh), while the all-wheel-drive models manage 2.5 miles/kWh (4.02 km/kWh). The energy-hungry Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 4Matic SUV does 2.4 miles/kWh (3.86 km/kWh).

The starting MSRP for the 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV remains unchanged at $104,400 for the base model, with the all-wheel-drive version also maintaining its $107,400 price tag. However, the EQS 580 4Matic SUV sees a $1,400 price hike, now retailing at $127,350. And don't forget the additional $1,150 destination charge.

The price for the Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 4Matic SUV, listed at $179,900, remains uncertain as the model currently listed on the manufacturer's website still features the older 108-kWh battery. Don't expect any of these luxurious EVs to qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit, as their price tags easily exceed the $80,000 cap.

The price just keeps going up for these fancy electric SUVs, not worth it in my opinion.
