Mercedes-Benz EQS Sedan introduces extensive updates for 2025

April 11th, 2024 by

  • Revised front fascia with new grille design, Mercedes-Benz standing star and AMG® Line bumper
  • Larger 118-kWh battery for improved electric range
  • New standard and optional features elevate comfort for rear passengers

Mercedes‑Benz continues to develop the EQS Sedan and its portfolio of all-electric vehicles with new updates and innovations incorporated more quickly than ever before. For 2025 model year, the EQS Sedan introduces numerous upgrades with a new larger battery for increased electric range, refined front fascia featuring a new grille design and Mercedes-Benz standing star on the hood, as well as new standard and optional equipment to enhance comfort for rear passengers. The 2025 Mercedes-Benz EQS Sedan arrives at U.S. dealerships later in 2024.

All 2025 EQS Sedan models benefit from an all-new battery with an increased usable capacity of 118 kWh for improved electric range. In addition, new regenerative braking software enables greater energy recuperation.

Due to the high proportion of recuperation with regenerative braking, the brake discs in the EQS Sedan are used less often during regular driving compared to models with combustion engines. A special function helps maintain the brake system by automatically applying the pads to the discs from time to time.

Modern styling combined with the iconic Mercedes star

A distinguishing feature of Mercedes‑Benz all-electric vehicles is the deep black panel grille, which connects seamlessly with the headlights. The design of the EQS Sedan is now refined with a unique front fascia. The new grille design features flush-mounted chrome slats for an elegant contrast to the deep black surroundings. A new standing star on the hood – unmistakably Mercedes-Benz – and a standard AMG® Line bumper provide further visual refinement.

Other exquisite details are also reflected in the interior of the EQS Sedan. Chrome accents now adorn the climate control vents on the B-pillars. The comfort pillows for rear passengers are enhanced with contrast stitching and Nappa leather piping.

Expanded rear comfort features

EQS Sedan models equipped with the optional Pinnacle Trim with Executive Interior Package feature a front passenger seat that can also fold forward to provide additional space for second row occupants, along with a backrest for the rear seat that can be adjusted up to 38 degrees. Rapid heating rear seats, neck and shoulder heating for rear passengers, as well as pneumatic adjustment of the rear seat depth are also included. Another exclusive element is the illuminated trim accents integrated into the back of the front seats.

Enhanced comfort also extends to the standard rear seats in the EQS Sedan. The angle of the backrest for the rear seats can be adjusted from 27 to 36 degrees at the touch of a button, and an additional 0.2 inches of foam has been added to the rear seat backrest. The layered design also visually emphasizes the individual comfort for passengers.

Did you know?…

…the MBUX Hyperscreen is standard on the EQS Sedan, as of 2024 model year. Three displays merge almost seamlessly into one another, creating a curved screen band over 55 inches wide.

…the standard heat pump increases climate comfort and efficiency. The waste heat from the electric drive (inverter and electric motor) and high-voltage battery can be used to heat the interior. This significantly reduces the need to utilize battery power for the heater and increases electric range.

…the Disconnect Unit (DCU) in 4MATIC® models automatically decouples the electric motor on the front axle depending on the driving situation and the required performance. At low loads, the DCU switches to 4×2 driving mode. The electric motor and transmission on the front axle then come to a standstill, which increases electric range.

…the recuperation level of the EQS Sedan has been increased. The greater deceleration (up to 3 m/s2) means more energy recovered and therefore a greater range. Mercedes‑Benz has also optimized the braking system, starting with the 2024 EQS Sedan, for a better pedal feel thanks to a modified brake force cylinder.

…many updates to the EQS Sedan were made using over-the-air technology (OTA). These include, for example, DolbyÒ Atmos, the YouTube web app and a digital travel guide.

…the EQS Sedan can be easily started and locked with the standard KEYLESS GO® comfort package and Digital Vehicle Key1 with compatible devices2. Key sharing is also possible.

…other models with the EVA 2 fully electric architecture (EQS Sedan, EQS SUV, EQE Sedan, EQE SUV) will also benefit from many of these improvements.
