A full-size luxury crossover twinned with the EQS Sedan, the EQS SUV is assembled in the United States at MBUSI in Vance, Alabama. In the second half of the decade, production will be moved to Mercedes-Benz Plant Bremen in Germany.

According to Automotive News Europe, the German automaker wants to make room at MBUSI for the second coming of the EQC. The first prototype was captured by the carparazzi in August 2023, looking extremely similar to the combustion-engined GLC, which is also made at the German plant.
