The EQS is Mercedes’ first all-out attempt at an electric car. For the first time Mercedes is using a structure which is specially developed to be pure electric rather than converting a petrol car. Not only is it flexible enough to allow numerous different configurations and be scalable to have different bodies placed on it (a smaller saloon and two SUVs are planned), but the platform’s clever packaging means it offers fantastic interior space.

Measuring 5.21 metres in length the EQS is as long as the range-topping S-Class limo. And with prices starting from £100k, it has the price tag of a limo.

So, Nicki Shields finds out if the EQS is as impressive as it seems but donning her chauffeur hat.
