EQS From Mercedes-EQ Vs. Lucid Air Comparison

Mercedes EQS vs Lucid Air

If you’re on the hunt for an all-new, all-electric luxury sedan, you undoubtedly want to compare the EQS vs. Lucid Air differences in range, performance, acceleration, and features. While the Lucid Air numbers seem impressive, they may not add up to the driving experience you want. Let’s compare the interior, safety features, and tech in both vehicles to see which new electric sedan provides the luxury and enjoyment you want from your daily driver.

EQS vs. Lucid Air Interior Comparison

The first place we’ll start our EQS vs. Lucid Air comparison is the interior. The new EQS immediately distinguishes itself from other premium luxury electric cars for sale thanks to the 12.8-inch OLED touchscreen central multimedia display and MBUX digital in-dash displays. These multimedia displays advance the industry with crisp, clear pixels for an enhanced visual experience while users enjoy an intuitive experience navigating the touch controls. Easily pinch, swipe and tap through menus or use the hands-free Bluetooth® audio streaming with an advanced voice recognition system.

While what’s under the hood of the Lucid Air delivers impressive numbers, we sit in the driver’s seat. Unfortunately for Lucid owners, you won’t find a 12.8-inch OLED touchscreen or MBUX digital in-dash display in this vehicle’s cabin. Since you’re comparing the interior of the Lucid Air vs. EQS from Mercedes-EQ, you might also want to look at our EQS vs. Tesla Model S comparison to see how how the EQS stacks up against the Model S.
