The Mercedes-Benz EQS will be the electric version of the next S-Class. This spy video captures the EV in heavy camouflage, but the interior seems more complete. A quick movement with the camera offers a magnificent view in the cabin of it, including a view of its digital screens.
Like many modern Mercedes models, there is a digital instrument cluster, but this one seems to have its own rectangular bezel. The center display has a portrait layout, however, rather than the landscape orientation of the existing version. There appears to be a lower section for controlling the HVAC system.
We cannot draw any final conclusion from the layout, as the significant camouflage on the outside suggests that this vehicle may be far from ready for production. The company could still reconfigure things before the production version arrives.
The easy way to identify the EQS is the vehicle’s angled headlights and the smooth front end. This one has spare parts for the tail lights and what we assume are fake exhaust pipes. The leaking images suggest that the standard S-Class has a more traditional appearance.
The EQS will have dead batteries under its cabin which will allow more interior space. Power would come from an electric motor powering each axle. Plus, there will be all the luxury and technology that traditional S-Class owners will expect to find.

The standard version of the new generation S-Class makes its debut in 2020, perhaps at the Paris Motor Show. Sales in Europe could start before the end of the year. The EQS may not have an unveiling at the same time but may still have a premiere before the end of the year.
