Serving Farmington Hills, MI

With premium options like the Porsche Taycan and the Mercedes-Benz EQS on the market, you do not need to forsake luxury and performance to drive a luxury car. Both of these are ultra-luxurious models that deliver an elite driving experience. However, the base price for the Taycan is noticeably more affordable. This is only the first of many essential differences between the Taycan and the EQS that may guide your selection process.


The 2022 Porsche Taycan has five electric motor systems available across its lineup. The base option is an all-electric motor that can produce up to 402 horsepower equipped with launch control. The most powerful system is a 616-horsepower engine. With overboost activated, this is kicked up to 750 horsepower. The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS has two powertrain systems. The base engine offers 329 horsepower with one electric motor driving the rear wheels. The other engine produces 580 horsepower with two electric motors.


The Taycan is visually stunning. It has the functionality of a four-door sedan with the sleek, sculpted curves of a sports car. It boasts a quad-style headlight system with a rounded nose and a strongly tapered hood. The fenders are impressively defined. The EQS has the expected styling of a small sedan. Its angled hood edges into a glossy black grille. The grille angles upward to link with the triangular LED headlights. The sides are mostly smooth, and the roof has a clamshell profile.


While these luxury electric cars are packed with premium features, there are some differences. For example, some of the equipment in the 2022 Taycan includes a Burmester sound system, night vision, a four-zone climate control system, adaptive cruise control, a sunroof, heated front, and rear seats, adaptive headlights, remote vehicle monitoring, a wireless charging pad and more. The EQS, on the other hand, has a glass roof, smart device integration, heated front seats, a power liftgate, a digital display screen for the driver’s instruments, driver’s safety aids, and other items.
