Mercedes-Maybach is expanding its product portfolio with its luxurious-focused all-electric EQS.

The SUV concept is nearing its production debut, with its design following a distinctive 'purpose design' that incorporates a smooth flow from the front end, roof and rear spoiler.

As is the case with the interior of most Maybach models, it features some of the best technology. The centrepiece is a curved 12.3-inch OLED MBUX Hyperscreen, along with other additions like round air vents coated in high-gloss chrome and a multifunction steering wheel.

Its appearance is kitted out with a two-tone paint finish in obsidian black metallic and zircon red metallic, with the chassis sitting pretty on sizeable 24-inch light-alloy wheels. The rear features a continuous helix light strip, with exclusive front and rear automatic comfort doors.
