It’s no secret that automobile manufacturers all over the world are starting to either trim down their offerings by focusing on their perceived strengths, market value, or by adopting new models with new technology that end up eating into the pricing of current products. Some cars have to go, and if a new model takes its place, it’ll usually be a whole new platform that incorporates some hybrid or EV technology, perfect for sustainability for the next couple of years. So it should come as no surprise when people started to spread some rumors about the fate of Mercedes-Benz’s S-Class Coupe and Convertible variants, saying that the eagerly anticipated new flagship, the MB EQS, will make the German manufacturer drop the Grand Tourers.
The Mercedes-Benz EQS will supposedly offer the most luxurious EV experience once it goes on sale for the 2021 model year. The EQS is built on a completely new platform that will allow for future EV models from MB, and is equipped with all-wheel drive, a pair of electric motors with an unconfirmed power figure (some say close to 500 horses), and a driving range around the 300-mile mark.
