2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS First Drive Review: An EV like nothing else

Sometimes, expectations weigh heavy on you. Big names, promising big things, and with big implications: the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS is a prime example.

Sometimes it can feel like there aren't any "regular" Mercedes-Benz out there. Plenty of AMG versions, or cars dressed up to look like they're AMG's handiwork, and even the odd Maybach for the luxe-chasers, but a standard, stolid car with the three-pointed star? That's the real rarity, it seems.
