Mercedes EQS Edition 1 Features

The Mercedes EQS is already the epitome of Mercedes’ luxury lineup, and the Edition 1 will add a bit more. In addition to the features, the Edition 1 package adds the AMG Line exterior package, which tweaks the bumpers a little and adds a set of 21-inch alloys. It gets a unique Metallic obsidian black paint scheme, a panoramic sliding sunroof and the “Edition 1” badge in the window triangles in the front.
