More than a year after it was revealed in Europe – and after months of delays – the 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV has been priced for Australia, arriving in showrooms from $194,900 plus on-road costs.

Despite SUVs often costing more than their traditional sedan siblings, the EQS SUV – sold locally in a single EQS450 4Matic grade – is $25,000 less-expensive than the four-door Mercedes-Benz EQS450, which is priced from $219,900 plus on-road costs.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS450 SUV is also the German car-maker’s most expensive electric SUV on sale in Australia, eclipsing the price of the AMG EQE53 4Matic+ SUV ($189,900 plus on-road costs) detailed earlier this week.

Mercedes-Benz’s flagship electric SUV is underpinned by the brand’s ‘EVA’ electric-car platform – shared with the EQS and EQE sedans – and powered by a dual electric motors, delivering up to 265kW and 800Nm to all four wheels.

Powered by a 107.8kWh battery pack, Mercedes-Benz claims 507km to 613km of driving range is achievable in the EQS450 SUV, according to Europe’s modern WLTP test cycle – or 592km on the outdated and more lenient NEDC test cycle.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV is capable of 200kW DC charging – with a quoted 10 to 80 per cent charge time of 31 minutes – while an on-board 11kW AC charger comes as standard.

All Australian examples of the EQS SUV are equipped with Mercedes-Benz’s ‘AMG Line’ styling package, adding an AMG front bumper (with high gloss black inserts), wheel arch linings, side sill panels and rear apron, while riding on 21-inch multi-spoke light-alloy wheels.

The electric SUV is also equipped with the same ‘Digital Light’ matrix LED headlights as the EQS sedan, with 1.3 million micro-mirrors and 2.6 million ‘pixels’.

Inside, the cabin is fitted as standard with a 12.3-inch digital instrument display and a 12.8-inch infotainment touchscreen which run Mercedes’ MBUX software.

However, the car-maker’s MBUX Hyperscreen – which combines a 12.3-inch digital dash, 17.7-inch infotainment touchscreen and a 12.3-inch passenger display into a singular 141cm dashboard-width panel – is available for an extra $6700.

For an additional $11,700, buyers can opt for the Comfort Plus Package, which adds two 11.6-inch seatback screens for rear passengers (plus a centre tablet) and wireless headphones, along with a wireless smartphone charging system, second and third-row heated seats, an interior fragrance system and mood-calming cabin modes.

The third and final optional extra for the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV allows the electric model’s rear-wheel steering angle to be increased from 4.5 degrees to 10 degrees – for a $2900 premium.

With the third-row seats up, Mercedes-Benz quotes 195 litres of storage capacity for the EQS SUV – increasing to 645 and 880 litres when folded, or 2100 with the second and third rows down.

The 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV is now available to order in Australia.
