The 2024 Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 has become the most expensive battery-electric vehicle in the Mercedes portfolio.
This ultra-luxury SUV uses two motors to make 649 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque.
The Maybach EQS 680 is available to order now.
The Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 now has a price. This ultra-luxe BEV from Mercedes will start at $179,900 before adding the $1150 destination and delivery charge. That brings the grand total for this EQS 680 to $181,050 before any other options are added to the window sticker. This flashy flagship represents the most expensive EQ model to date and nearly doubles the price of the standard EQS SUV.
However, that price jump does come with some serious upgrades, particularly inside the cabin, where this grand roller gets Maybach-exclusive Nappa leather seat coverings. This represents the first Mercedes product to use vegetable-based tanned leather. Burmester 4D surround sound is standard, as is a pair of 11.6-inch entertainment screens for the second row.
As you’d expect from a Maybach, the second row is where you want to be anyway. The folks at Mercedes will replace the standard five-passenger configuration from the EQS 680 with an executive seating package for no extra cost. That does reduce your seat count to four, but it also nets you fold-down tray tables and armrests for the rear passengers.
If that price isn’t high enough for you, Mercedes also offers a $25,000 Night Series Design Package. This package defaults to the executive rear seating option but comes with a set of 21-inch seven-spoke wheels along with exclusive black pearl leather and natural grain Herringbone pattern walnut accents on the interior.
Final powertrain details, like range, are still up in the air, but the motor layout is confirmed. Powering this EQS 680 is a pair of electric motors that send 649 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque to the wheels. Mercedes says this EQS runs out of steam at 130 mph but can sprint to 60 mph in only 4.1 seconds. Not bad for this certainly hefty BEV.
Mercedes says you can order your ’24 Maybach EQS 680 now. The company hasn’t mentioned when it expects deliveries, but you can likely expect this Alabama-built cruiser to hit the streets soon.
