2025 Mercedes-Benz EQS Debuts New Look, Improved Range

  • Mercedes-Benz has just introduced a series of updates for the 2025 EQS sedan, including a revised front end and a larger battery pack.
  • The updated EQS features a new 118.0-kWh battery pack and redesigned regenerative braking software that should improve the EQS’s range by more than 10 percent.
  • While pricing for the 2025 EQS will have to wait, Mercedes did confirm the lightly refreshed model will begin arriving at dealerships later this year.

Mercedes-Benz’s sumptuous EQS electric luxury sedan is preparing to enter its fourth model year with an updated front end and a new battery pack to improve on its already competitive range. While the EQS featured a 108.4-kWh battery pack for the first three years of its life, the 2025 model sees that figure increase to 118.0 kWh.

Increased Range

Car and Driver reached out to Mercedes-Benz for updated EPA figures, but unfortunately we’ll have to wait until closer to launch to see those numbers. The last EQS we put through our real-world 75-mph highway fuel-economy test managed an impressive 350 miles.

According to Mercedes, the increase in battery size pairs with freshly updated regenerative braking software to further improve the electric sedan’s range. Using the more forgiving European WLTP range figures, Mercedes calculated a more than 11 percent increase in driving range. Assuming that translates to the U.S., we can expect the 2025 EQS sedan’s range to be closer to 390 miles.

Updated Design and Standard Features

In addition to the increased driving range, Mercedes also redesigned the front end of the EQS. The updated design is noticeable, but not in your face. The sea of Mercedes-Benz stars plastered to the front of previous models has been replaced by a more traditional-looking grille design with chrome slats contrasting against a black background. Additionally, the flat Mercedes-Benz crest has been replaced by the more traditional standing-star hood ornament.

Inside the 2025 car, Mercedes has introduced a series of changes focused on opulence and comfort for the rear passenger. The climate control vents on the B-pillar now feature chrome accents, while the rear seat pillows now earn contrast stitching and nappa leather piping. If that’s not enough, customers with extra cash to spend can spring for the Pinnacle trim and Executive Interior package. The package features a rear seat that can lean back up to 38 degrees and allows the rear passenger to fold the front passenger seat forward for improved legroom. We’ll have to wait a bit longer for updated specs and pricing information on the 2025 EQS, but Mercedes did confirm the lightly refreshed model will begin arriving at dealerships later this year.

      Jack Fitzgerald’s love for cars stems from his as yet unshakable addiction to Formula 1.
      After a brief stint as a detailer for a local dealership group in college, he knew he needed a more permanent way to drive all the new cars he couldn’t afford and decided to pursue a career in auto writing. By hounding his college professors at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, he was able to travel Wisconsin seeking out stories in the auto world before landing his dream job at Car and Driver. His new goal is to delay the inevitable demise of his 2010 Volkswagen Golf.
