With the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show set to begin really soon, Mercedes-Benz has teased a new EQ concept that will make its debut at the event. For now, the German carmaker hasn’t provided anything in terms of details – not even a name – so we only have a photo and sketch to go on at this time.

Working with what we have, the concept does appear to have a very sleek shape to it, with prominent shoulders and slim lighting units. Even though the car is under wraps, the three-element lighting array of the headlamps can be seen, and this also includes the illuminated Mercedes-Benz logo.

It is likely the unnamed EQ concept will serve as a preview for the EQS, which will be a fully-electric limousine that is a separate model from the S-Class, and not an additional variant.

Reports indicate the EQS will be built on a dedicated modular electric architecture (MEA) platform, and we’ve already seen prototypes undergoing road testing in the past. Based on those spyshots, the model appears to offer a substantial wheelbase thanks to the under-floor packaging of the batteries, along with short overhangs.

Powertrain-wise, the EQS is expected to use a dual-electric motor setup – one for each axle – for permanent all-wheel-drive just like the EQC. On the pure-electric SUV, this layout offers 402 hp and 765 Nm of torque, with an 80 kWh lithium-ion battery providing up to 417 km of range. Given its size, the EQS is expected to use a battery pack with around 90 kWh in capacity.
