A little over a year ago, Mercedes slashed the price of its electric EQS ​​sedan by as much as $33,000 in China in an attempt to boost disappointing sales. One reason was the sporty roofline, which affected rear-seat headroom. The restyled models, which are shown in the new spy shots, should correct this situation.

As CEO Ola Källenius revealed during a recent call with investors, Mercedes-Benz will try to improve the situation with a new option called «executive seats».

«If you are sitting in the back, you can still order a regular rear seat, — Kallenius said. — But these executive seats will also be available from June this year. I'm 195 cm tall and when I sit in the back seat of the EQS I feel very comfortable there».

Mercedes will give buyers the choice between an updated version of the current grille or an all-new traditionally styled grille with a three-star hood emblem similar to the existing S-Class design.

«Some of them want to keep the sportier look and integrate the star into the panel, — Kallenius said. — And some, we imagine, will want a more traditional look. So you can get both».

Interior photos have also surfaced, confirming that the cars will be available in two interior configurations. Base models will feature the usual S-Class central display and a separate digital instrument panel. Seniors will receive a Hyperscreen panel with three displays.

According to Källenius, Mercedes will equip the updated EQS with an improved battery with a new chemistry, which, along with other measures, will «improve efficiency and range».
