2022 Mercedes EQS: new photos...




Although these are new, we have seen most of this already. 

The new EQS does look good. Until you compare it to the concept from a couple of years ago.  Then the production version starts looking a bit sad. You start thinking of all the lost possibilities. Everything that went wrong... ( in the Mercedes design department as well as your own personal life) Why? 

Now the EQS looks like a Mercedes from a few years ago. Which is still OK, I guess.
They weren't that ugly. But the concept made us hope for something truly modern and futuristic. I guess we'll have to wait another 30 years for the real super modern Mercedes. Maybe?

I totally agree. Those rear lights would have been supercool, and so would have been the shape of the rear window. I can only imagine that these things would have been too expensive for mass production. Too expensive? This is a Mercedes-Benz, and the EQS is the top model in the whole range! Details like that would actually be the definition of "luxury", i.e. things that could separate Mercedes from cheaper manufacturers. Is Mercedes-Benz still a luxury brand after all? Certainly not what it used to be 20, 30, 40 years ago.

It's OK, Model S buyers are used to boring.

agree that the concept looked better but that huge piece of rear window glass must be heavy and expensive.. the rear of the red car actually looks like a hatchback which would be an improvement as trunk openings nowadays resemble mailbox openings. Still, the rear window treatment on the red car looks dated, a very small window opening surrounded by lots of black.

It does look underwhelming compared to the concept. Then again the new S class looked underwhelming in spy shots and the finished product ended up looking stunning (IMO) so there's hope for the EQS.

Those "Running Boards" would just be an invite for punks to trash in a parking lot.

Vince, we have a victory here! The trunk turned into a hatch!
