Mercedes announced the pricing of the new EQS SUV for European customers exactly ten days ago. Now it is the turn of the Americans to find out how much they need to pay if they want to take the electric high-rider home.

In the United States, three trims with three different powertrains are available, just like in Europe. The entry-level version goes for $104,400. That amount brings the EQS 450+ with a single electric motor, 360 PS (355 HP), and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) in the Premium trim.

The Premium includes the Driver Assistance Package, the heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, and power sunroof. The Parking Package with Surround View System and the Burmester 3D Sound System are also on board. The car rides on 20-inch wheels and comes with the 10-degree rear axle steering.

Those who want more can go for the Exclusive Trim. They would get a Head-Up Display, the MBUX, front Multicontour seats with massage programs, also featuring the Rapid Heating system. A four-zone climate control, the Air Balance Package, and the Mercedes-Benz Star Pattern Logo Projectors are also on the list.

And there comes the range-topping trim Pinnacle that brings along the MBUX rear system and Executive Second Row seats. There are also a second-row middle armrest with wireless charging and comfort rear headrests.

Higher up in the range there is the Mercedes EQS SUV 450+ 4MATIC. It is powered by two electric motors that provide the exact same output as in the 450+, 360 PS (355 HP). This one will start at $107,400.

For those who would not settle for anything other than “The best of nothing”, Mercedes sells the EQS S580 4MATIC. It also features the two electric motors, each driving an axle. But together they bring along 544 PS (537 HP) and 857 Nm (633 lb-ft) of torque. In the U.S., this version will start at $125,950, while customers in Europe will have to start negotiations for the range-topper at €135,291. That is around 134,785 at today’s exchange rate.
