BI: (Excellent slideshow with dozens of photos.) I drove Mercedes-Benz's first electric SUV for the US and was blown away by its luxurious interior — see inside the $107,000 EQS SUV

Put one of these cars next to a Tesla Model Y and people with eyes and synaptic sensitivity will be jumping to a real luxury vehicle, The Mercedes EQS.

Up until fairly recently, if you wanted a big, luxurious SUV that ran on electricity, your main choice was a Tesla Model X.

But now, players like BMW and Mercedes are on a mission to steal Elon Musk’s thunder — and customers.

It’s packed with impressive features and offers solid driving range, but its super comfortable and luxurious interior blew me away the most.
