The Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 SUV is a highly luxurious version of the standard EQS designed for owners who prioritize top-notch comfort over practical utility.

The Maybach SUV prioritizes comfort for its passengers, but at the expense of practicality as it only seats four instead of the more typical five to seven people for an SUV. This design choice is more fitting for the sedan S-Class Maybach vehicles.

While the pricing for the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV has not been disclosed, it is expected to be nearly double the cost of the most affordable EQS SUV, which starts at $104,400. The Maybach GLS has a starting price of approximately $175,000, indicating that the EQS will likely have a higher price tag.

The opulent concept version of the electric EQS SUV that was unveiled in 2021 featured extravagant design elements such as a massive faux grille, chrome wheels with beveled edges, and a grid of Maybach logos embedded in the headlights. The production version tones down these features but still maintains a distinct Maybach aesthetic with a two-tone body.

Additional design elements that differentiate the Maybach include the classic Mercedes-Benz raised hood emblem and a faux grille, as well as extra chrome trimmings added to the bumper and air intake area. The Maybach's exterior also features unique flat cog-shaped rims that are less visually appealing than the star-style rims found on the regular EQS SUV. However, the Maybach rims do feature the Mercedes-Benz logo with Maybach written on the caps and come in 21- and 22-inch sizes. The automaker claims to have made the radar equipment invisible by fully integrating it into the car's high-tech element.

As an EV, the Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 SUV has a dual-motor with a total output of 484 kW, which is slightly more powerful than the non-Maybach EQS 580. It boasts a top speed of 130mph and can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 4.4 seconds. It also supports 200kW DC-fast charging and can travel up to 600 kilometers on one charge, though this is based on European WLTP testing procedures and is less than the 660-kilometer WLTP range of the standard EQS SUV.
