    Jay's quietest test drive ever. He never has to raise his voice.

      @ambessa shield Exactly this. I hate when my radio/tunes are drowned out by the car's noise. Give me super quiet any day. The older I get, the more I like peace and tranquility. And when I want to blast tunes, that's all I want to hear.

    • NaYawkr

      Yes, Jay should raise his voice about the silly idea of driving a battery with no ability to charge itself once it runs out of power.

      @Dragos Pahontu A car can never be too quiet. Most ppl would rather hear music than car noise.

    Jay, back in the 60's and 70's would you have ever thought something like this in a car?
    I wouldn't want to have to track down a problem with something not working in it. But I never thought, this is a car of the future. Sure will spoil you. Thanks 👍 for your site Jay

    This Mercedes EQS doesn't look like a typical Mercedes, but rather like a Honda, especially the front part of the car. Interiors is absolutely fabulous 🤩. Boot space is really impressive as well.

    • RothBeyondTheGrave
      RothBeyondTheGrave 4 months ago

      EVERY modern car looks exactly the same. Bubbles for soft people who are as far from enthusiasts as can be.
      Any car after around 2011 is a joke generally speaking. I was remotely hopeful for this one, but how they do a soft locking out of the owner to the hood tells me all I need to know.
      The concept actually looked incredible. Too bad.

      Thie outlook is like If Honda Civic and Mercebes c-class would have sex and this would be The Renault, rheir Kid 😄 By The Day, here on Finland 🇫🇮 normal E85 gasoline costs something like 10,3 dollar per gallon (about 2,6 euros = 2,74 dollar per litre)

    Thank you for this review. I had not focused on the EQS or EQS 53 until recently when comparing the various Lucid models to Teslas and Taycans. Not sure about the styling, but everything else looks very atteractive dynamically and otherwise. Would have been good to hear some information on charging times and range.

    A spectacular technical achievement. I'm guessing that the driving nannies and hazard avoidance functions might help offset the danger of a very distracted driver. Much of Jay's drive was taken up fiddling with things on the screens. The interior is spectacular, but outward visibility looks so restricted due to the small glass area and massive pillars.

    The real question is how are they going to make this expensive to maintain?

    • RothBeyondTheGrave
      RothBeyondTheGrave 4 months ago +2

      It's an EV, that's how.
      Notice how Jay says, "cuz this doesn't open" (tapping the hood) and the designer smirks. The hood obviously does open, but Benz attempts to lock you out (hiding the hood latch behind a trap door secured w/ a few torx screws).
      "Hey Mercedes" literally tells you "only a qualified blah blah blah is authorized to open the hood.
      EV's mean the end of all diy, most indy shops, & car ownership. Everything will be rented (leased), & dealer serviceable only. The used market will be nonexistent.
      They won't only be astronomical to maintain once every electric feature & module fail & need replacement, but you'll never own one or pay one off. There's many ways they can go about this. The future of driving is bleak.

    As always, a very interesting video, with all due respect, I would have liked to see the back seats as I can assume it must be a very confortable place do be.

    • Ghost of R/T

      Back seats have leg room, but if you’re over 6’ tall then you’re lacking headroom.

    4/24/21, I guess Jay had to hold this recording until some official release date. It is a beautiful car and definitely a nod to the future.
    As far as luxury = smooth and quiet and EV's being smooth and quiet, I don't know. Being ultra super quiet might be a bit disconcerting. I want to hear a bit of the engine rumbling and hearing the transmission shift. I believe Rolls Royce made their new Ghost so quiet that during testing, passengers felt uncomfortable and Rolls Royce made the car a touch louder and people were reassuringly comforted because of the sound.

    • Xavier Franco
      Xavier Franco 6 months ago

      Oh, by the way, the car does have sound profiles that you can turn on that mimic a combustion engine vehicle. It gives a sound when accelerating and braking. And it's not just one sound profile, there are several to choose from just in case you don't like it too quiet.

    • Xavier Franco
      Xavier Franco 6 months ago

      LOL transmission? It's an electric car.

  • 914050a
    914050a Year ago +7

    I wish they could have gotten the beltline a bit lower. The side windows start so high up, especially for the rear seat passengers, it seems like it would be a little claustrophobic, and the back glass is tiny for a full-size luxury car. I know safety regulations are a limiting factor, but if they would sacrifice a bit of the angle (which would admittedly hurt external styling), I think it could be improved upon. If designing a more open-feeling greenhouse were to also cost a few miles of range, that might be a worthy compromise as well.
    Anyway, that point aside, good on Mercedes for putting out a serious luxury EV.

    • Xavier Franco
      Xavier Franco 6 months ago

      I think they could lay off the aerodynamics a bit to make the car look nicer on the outside and give better views.

    Francisco Rodriguez Year ago +1

    Jay great video as always: I am curious do electric cars loose energy faster if you have like three other people in the ca? meaning more weight? what about if you drive at night in the rain with ac on? light on, radio on, luggage, and a full family? would all that make a difference in the range?
    I drive an 2014 BMW GT 535i x and get practically the same mileage San Antonio Tx to Houston and back at night in summer with rain, light, ac, radio on with my wife and luggage than by myself in the fall with no ac in the morning.

    • ChrisNVegas
      ChrisNVegas Year ago

      Electric cars are being pushed hard. Unfortunately they are not ready for prime time. Batteries are still primitive and do not hold enough energy. I sometimes have to travel from Nevada to Georgia without notice. I have a diesel F-350 with a large fuel tank. I don't even give it a second thought. Attempting to drive any of these electric cars long distance would be an ordeal then I'm not ready for. And just for giggles, a Nissan leaf replacement battery cost $16,000. They last four or five years. Tesla batteries are $25,000 and up. I don't think people know what they're getting into.

  • Adam Skinner
    Adam Skinner Year ago +2

    I guess we all have our own views on what's beautiful or art lol, I can see the advantages of being incredibly aerodynamic especially in an electric car where range, battery and weight count for so much but as far as attractive Mercedes go this just doesn't do it for me at all and I do think Mercedes make some really beautiful cars. The front and profile just look ugly to my eye, stunning or beutiful aren't words I think describe it, maybe functional. It is Mercedes luxury and options galore when it comes to the interior though which is pretty special.

  • Brian Kirk
    Brian Kirk 6 months ago

    I'm not a big Mercedes fan, but that Mercedes is beautiful, I especially love the body style and all the luxury inside, it may be way out of my price range but, gorgeous car, and that is definitely the future whether people like it or not, and I'm looking forward to it 😀

      ..and in the trunk was a map of Germany when Poland, Austria, and a bunch of other coutries were Germany. A manifesto found detailed plans to take over Palestine using two horses. One with Hitler (Jewish/Polish heritage ;p ) destined to fail (ended up in Argentina with other Jewish Nazi's, it is what it is), so false compassion would get a bunch of Germans from the state of Poland into the (greater) Syrian motherland, Palestine. Make no mistake, that's real history. Had Lebanon not been separated from Syria, courtesy of the French, Syria would have 2 major capitals in Beirut and Demascus, like California and New York. Fyi Tabouli and Hommus isn't German/Polish/Jewish.
      - Protocols of the elders of Zion. Good read, even though they (Israeli's) say it's plagiarised, it's transcribed actually. Big difference. One gets the orginal text's information across to the public, the other makes no difference unless you're submitting an assignment.
      Excuse the non-twitter long-form explanation.

  • Nate
    Nate Year ago +3

    From a Product design pov, I feel like Jay Leno represent a specific population of users that might find all of this overwhelming! Too many quirks here and there (some hidden within a lotta menus) which raises the issue of Learnability. You could tell Jay had some difficulty trying to figure out where some features were even after he stated he had been using the car for a couple of days, and even with the VP going on and on about features and all he looked uninterested later on.
    I mean dude just wanna get in his car and just drive without all these (distractions) but at the same time be able to enjoy the luxurious features as well. I mean a feature like the massage seats (seems like a latent need) should be able to be turned on/off with just a tap of a button and not to go through all these hurdles.
    Maybe I’m just tripping

    • Xavier Franco
      Xavier Franco 6 months ago

      There's a learning curve with everything. It's a bit annoying to have that curve when you only have the vehicle for a little while. If you own it, you can take as long as you want to figure everything out.

    Beautiful car, I am not so much in favor of electric cars, but this may be the exception. My thinking is that now that the internal combustion engine has come to almost perfection, are we going to abandoned this technology?

  • wkiernan
    wkiernan Year ago +9

    Hey MB guy, how about this for a feature. I know you guys love hi-tech gadgets and I see you have motorized doors. Add a proximity sensor so that when the doors open, they automatically stop short of bumping into anything. Imagine you go to get in your car and someone has parked close to the driver's door. There's enough room to squeeze in, but it will be difficult to do it without either dinging into the car next to yours of banging the edge of your car's door. But with this feature you could just open the door, it would stop an inch away from bumping into the other car and hold the door in that position, and you could get in without damaging anybody's paint job.

    • Xavier Franco
      Xavier Franco 6 months ago

      Get this, there's multiple buttons on the key fob. There's a separate one that doesn't open it all the way. Imagine that!

  • Hvitserk
    Hvitserk Year ago +6

    All I can see is that the Citroën DS was already there in terms of design in 1955. When this is mentioned, the EQS is of course an impressive construction just not particularly innovative in terms of design. Even the 2006 Citroën C6 has almost the same overall design as the EQS. As much as I like the regular videos from Jay Leno's Garage, I actually miss the unique so-called "lock down edition" videos. They were more personal and present - and really very much just as good if not better.

    • John from Accounting

    Hilarious as Jay likes to say. Looks like a stretched out 2010 +/- Civic. The two Merc badges on the front, hood and grill, also hilarious. German "art"....where, when? The VP of design is very young so none of this hilariousness is too surprising. Fun video Mr. Leno! I needed a laugh today. Would be interesting to see them (Merc) do an electric design using the 72 600 Kompressor as a starting point. That was a good looking car.

    I'm getting one I think.
    A few things: For ultimate comfort, don't put batteries under the back row's foot well. Also, Lucid has a huge trunk, this one has none. Seems a rushed packaging job. The front fender panel is not a win.
    Such a car deserves an Estate version. Especially to compete with the Model S and Taycan, that do have a frunk, and large SUVs.
    The rendered Estate version are GORGEOUS. I'd buy that immediately. Can't wait for the EQE in Estate, I hope they make it. Less overall length and all the convenience. Now that Tesla is opening its charging network, I'm running out of reasons to deal with them.

    5 years from now I'm certain that I will buy an electric seeing this I'm glad to say that I will buy a Tesla , for design reasons mostly power performance related, mercedes priority is interior luxury and I love it but for me technology software of Tesla is the most important .

    Hi Jay, I think the technology in this Mercedes is great but the vehicle’s design looks exactly like the 2002 Saturn S model that was discontinued.

    Since the EQS will not be "in-addition" to the ICE S-Class, but Will Be the New S-Class I have a couple of comments:
    1. I've driven Mercedes since 1985 and currently have a 1987 560SL, 2010 E350, and 2010 ML350, so my knowledge and experience with MB mainly comes from these models.
    2. One of the complaints I have with my 2010 models is it seems that aspects of these vehicles were "over-engineered" - when something that should be simple has a complex design. This is what came to mind when Jay showed the special, side-mounted port to fill something as simple as the windshield washer fluid. I wonder how much more "over-engineering" are in this EQS?
    3.What maintenance can the owner do the the vehicle? How much can a "shade tree mechanic" expect to be able to do? I"m a "DIY-er" - like Jay - so, I would want to at least do the basic maintenance on the EQS. Perhaps, the era of the DIY-er is over with these autos?
    4. What happens when the car breaks down? Do you tow it to Mercedes? Doesn't the local Mercedes dealer know how to work on this car?
    5. How long does Mercedes warranty or guarantee the battery pack?
    6. What does the warranty cover and for how long. I can just imagin that long display breaking, or a portion of it stop illuminating, and the entire display has to be replaced.
    7. I hope they have redesigned the sunroof so it can't possibly leak - something that has plagued my E350, ML350, and my old ML320.
    8. I hope the GUI (software operating system) was not designed by the Team that designed the "Comand" system! The "logic" and interface of that system is a mess (I'm an IT guy familiar with UNIX, AIX, and Windows).
    I live in Alabama and happened to see one of these auto's up-close in the parking lot of a local store. The driver - a nice German fellow who worked for Mercedes in Vance let me give it a quick look-see. I was very impressed! He mentioned they will not be building these in Vance, but they will be building the SUV model.

    As long as you can option out the piano black I'm happy, I also think if anything the single plain of screen on the dash will be super easy to clean, like that might make the finger print issue just not a problem because its all one thing, you just take a dust collecting cloth and boom its clean.

    Back in 2018, I ended up chatting with a guy who works on car dashboard designs, they were using VR goggles and real-life models. Their research was more interesting though because they were testing what happens if the cars are full self-driving and everybody is just a passenger. The end result was pretty much what Tesla model 3/Y has. I thought it would be like Byton dash but he said: "We found out that people would turn everything off after a while, one screen in the middle would work just well. Then there are the VR glasses and windshield embedded displays."
    I remember thinking about the luxury cars where the dashboard is a big part of the luxury and you would need to have a "shelf" where all the controls and displays are. EQS is pretty much how I imagined it to be with a Saab-like Night Panel button. The actual EQS dashboard design is far better than I could have come up with.

    Thanks for an honest opinion. I am a Tesla-fan and owner. You state it best. Tesla is a performance car and Mercedes is luxury.
    I have been telling a friend of mine how I like this car. I think it is good looking. And the interior is spectacular. Range and performance is more than adequate.
    Thanks for a review that lines up w how I see the car 😂😂

    Thanks Jay. A well-engineered vehicle. It's just horrendously ugly in its styling : The form, the fussy details, the proportions, the the way the leading edge of the front windows extends so far ahead of the door edges and mirrors, the "jewel" details. I've owned Mercedes and many of its competitors cars as well... I've never disliked a design so much.

    The interior is beautiful. The exterior needs some work. Why can't they make the exterior like the regular S class. Then I would be very impressed. Give me the looks of the S580 as a electric car then I would be very happy.

    4:37 "Here in California it's approaching 5 dollars a gallon"
    That made me smile a bit. I live in the Netherlands, and the petrol prices here have passed € 2 per liter a couple of week ago. Let me convert that for you; that's more than 8,60 dollar per gallon.
    Personally, I don't mind that much. I drive a plugin Prius and I get way over 100 mpg, but the country is in turmoil about this subject.

    I’m really starting to believe that brands are intentionally being lazy with exterior designs to bring more focus to the inside and move towards self-driving cars.
    Ultimately cars will become just transportation/entertainment hubs and the exterior look will matter much less (“my interior has 6 screens, theater surround sound, AR system, connectivity, shopping/browsing” etc)
    The only exciting designs are from driver centric models for the few that will still be into the driving aspect I.e. the whole package i.e Audi e-Tron RS GT, Porsche Taycan, etc

    Also I hate to say this to someone like Jay, he’s truly a living legend and we as viewers are blessed to have him at our era!!! Thank you god 🙏.. but I feel he should also do some sound check like sound system especially with these new age types of cars … just a thought 💭

    Reminds me of my 93 Pontiac Bonneville 😉. Bean shaped. You can only do so much with a car. My issue with all new cars is that the dashboard is distracting. When you look at a screen your pupils dilate and your night vision is screwed. Jay, it let’s you cross the 2X yellow line.

  • Allan Sonac
    Allan Sonac Year ago

    Actually the designer failed to mention that there's a camera in the front that detects eye movement and if it senses that you're too distracted from the 3rd screen the car will warn you then turn off the 3rd screen.There's an ambiant light feature along with the zen mood mode that combines a scent pod that combines smells and lighting also available on the S class. If you guys and gals think this car is cool wait until you see the BMW Vision i Circular. That car's infotainment system is in another league completely.

    I'm an aerospace engineer and an aerodymanicist.....I really like this car. Tell the stylists to take a hike. They are know-nothing graphic designers. This is actually functional and beautiful in how it works. 0.20 is phenomenal! My favorite car of all time is the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. It has a coefficient of drag of 0.28 (the standard Charger was 0.40) and was the first car to do over 200mph on a closed course. I'm building one with a Hellcat Redeye. See you at Bonneville. Aerodynamics work! This might not have a HEMI, but it still works. They actually have a similar, smaller, C class that has a 600 mile range. I might buy one.

    Hello mr. Jay that's a beautiful car Mercedes-Benz design for me what I like about this car is the technology that it comes with which means that I love the interior the design of the exterior is wonderful but like I said I love the interior hey my name is Craig and I'm from Jamaica I am upcoming car designer and I have a couple of design that I would love to show to the world this is my dream and I don't want my dreams to go to waste I used to work at a carwash called Highway Escape that is where I was inspired by two cars Lexus GS 350 or 300 and a BMW 335i those two cars inspired me to come up with a design that I have right now I was inspired by the Lexus interior and I was inspired by the BMW exterior so mr. Jay I don't know if you could help me get in touch with Mercedes-Benz car manufacturer I would love to show off my design I try to come up with ideas and designs that I've never seen before I don't know if it's in the Macon I don't know if it's out there but the thing is I've never seen it before I just want to get my ideas and design out there before anyone else does so I was wondering if you could help me Make My Dreams become a reality please and thank you.😊🙏
