Mercedes-Benz EQS facelift will revert to a traditional grille design

Apart from the grille design, the upcoming EQS will also feature an uprated battery with new chemistry - for improved range.

According to reports, Mercedes-Benz is working on a facelift version of its flagship EV, the EQS sedan.

The new Mercedes-Benz EQS though will undergo a design overhaul in a bid to reverse the sales slump. One of the big changes expected is a newly designed conventional grille and the inclusion of the iconic three-pointed star on the bonnet. The new grille is expected to be sleeker and come with the stars inscribed onto the surface.

A sneak peek of the new grille reportedly flashed up during an event to highlight its similarity to that of the current S-Class. Ola Kallenius, CEO, Mercedes-Benz, stated, "Some [customers] will want to keep a more sporty look and have the star integrated in the panel, and some we believe will want to have the more traditional look."

Apart from the grille design, the upcoming EQS will also feature an uprated battery with new chemistry - for improved range. It will also borrow the upgraded 118 kWh battery pack from the EQS SUV.

Inside, the EQS sedan will gain optional 'executive seats' at the rear, instead of the bench.
