What is interesting, in Q4 2021, Mercedes-Benz sold 443 EQS. That's really not bad and we thought that it would initially be less than that.
For reference, the S-Class noted 5,101 sales in Q4 and 14,282 in 2021. There is a big chance that the EQS will gradually expand to levels comparable to the S-Class. Nearly 1:10 (EQS to S-Class) is a good start.
The EQS starts north of $100,000 in the U.S. (before incentives) and offers up to 350 miles of EPA range.

Other than that, Mercedes-Benz sold 76,031 cars and vans in Q4 (down 20.2% year-over-year), while the 2021 result is 329,574 (up 1.1%). The company does not report the sales results of its plug-in hybrid models.
Dimitris Psillakis, President and CEO of MBUSA said:
“Results for 2021 demonstrated the incredible demand for the Mercedes-Benz brand in the U.S. and worldwide despite ongoing supply challenges. Together with our Mercedes-Benz dealer partners, we will advance our position with the electric EQS-sedan, all new SL, new C-Class, EQE, EQS SUV and EQB in 2022 and further accelerate our long term ambitions for an electric future.”
