Mercedes-Benz has released its Christmas 2021 commercial, introducing the all-new, all-electric 2022 EQS as “the future”.
The ad puts a fresh spin on the classic story of a ghostly visit and the man who sees his past, present and future and sees Ebenezer Scrooge being visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley at midnight to let him see the past, the present and the future. The past and the present are both gray, with the former being represented by thousands of drivers stuck in traffic jams, but the future gives him thrills because it’s represented by the new 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 Sedan. Seeing the new flagship of the automaker’s electric fleet and getting into its spacious cabin, Ebenezer is delighted.
The commercial ends with the voiceover urging viewers Happy Holidays.
With a large 108 kWh battery pack, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS is capable of up to 350 miles on a full charge, can DC Fast Charge up to 80% in just 31 mins, and can sprint to 60 in as little as 4 seconds. The cabin features multiple screens unifying under a single 56-inch span of high-tech glass, LED ambient lighting in the dash, doors and even the seats, which offers 64 colors that drivers can select and change as they wish, four-stage filtration with a HEPA filter that can pre-purify the cabin air and pair aromatherapy with a rejuvenating massage.
The EQS range includes three trims – Standard Premium Trim, which includes Burmester 3D Surround Sound and ventilated front seats as standard, Exclusive Trim, which adds massaging front seats, four climate zones and a Head-Up Display, and Pinnacle Trim, which comes with a suite of rear-cabin indulgences.
