2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV vs. Its Competition

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The EQS SUV is early out of the gate with battery power and SUV credentials, so natural rivals for the three-row electric SUV are few.

The Tesla Model X is one, with superior performance on one hand and an inferior door and interior design on the other.

The Lucid Air’s no SUV, but it’s a beautifully wrought piece with super-long driving range and a fresh brand name for those who want to be ahead of the cutting edge.

The BMW iX has awkward looks but five-seat SUV space inside; it’s BMW’s first real ground-up battery car for the masses.

Finally, the Mach-E’s also a five-seater, but it has good cargo space, very good performance, a sleek shape, and—oh, right, you can buy one today.

The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E gives the electric crossover good looks and agility.

The 2022 Lucid Air is the debut car and flagship model from a new U.S. EV maker, and it could be the strongest rival to Tesla yet.

If you can look past the gimmickry of the falcon doors, the 2021 Tesla Model X can render the big gas-guzzling family SUV obsolete.
