2022 Mercedes-EQ EQS 450+ Review  -  CarBuyer Singapore - front shot low

The EQS is not a cheap car, and its buyers won’t expect it to be, either. But the interesting thing is that it’s quite a bit less costly than an S 450 L – S$599k vs S$530k, thanks to EEAI and a maximum VES rebate of S$25,000.

As pointed out, the EQS doesn’t lack any major features we expect of a luxury car, so there’s no need to go crazy with the options list. For example, our car came with the Burmester surround sound system (S$6,400) and panoramic sunroof (S$8,400), which are nice-to-haves, but not essential.

The EQS is the first luxury limo EV to land in Singapore, and has no direct competition for now. [UPDATE 2023 : BMW’s i7 has arrived to give the EQS a very hard time] The closest would be four-door luxury EVs like the Porsche Taycan and Audi E-Tron GT, but those are sportier and less luxurious.

The EQS will  have its first challenger soon in the form of the electric flagship BMW 7 Series, the i7. We’ll see how refined the EQS is in comparison then, but for now the EQS is the King of Silence, and leads the way on how luxurious, refined electric motoring should be.
