Mercedes’ Alabama operation gears up for all-electric Maybach SUV

Mercedes-Benz’s Alabama operation is preparing to take the automaker’s concept of the ultra-luxury automobile to an electrifying new level, with the upcoming production launch of the 2024 Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 sport utility.

Mercedes debuted the head-turning vehicle this week, saying “the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV sets the new benchmark in the all-electric top-end luxury SUV segment” in an announcement. The model is loaded with lavish appointments and creature comforts such as a “cocooning” rear seat environment.

The Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV will be assembled at the automaker’s 6 million-square-foot production complex in Tuscaloosa County, where workers already build the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 sport utility.

The batteries powering the new EV will come from the Mercedes battery plant in Bibb County, located just minutes away from the assembly plant.
