Are all dealers charging more than MSRP for EQS build orders? In Southwest Florida I’ve heard of $15,000 to $25,000 being added. Wondering if that’s consistent in other parts of U.S.

They continue to list the MSRP on their websites but when asked, it is a different story. This would be my fifth new Mercedes and it looks like loyalty is out the window.

Ebay is listing a Mercedes EQS 450+ with an Msrp of $117,940.00 for $142,940.00 or best offer. That is a premium of $25,000.00!
This would be my 3rd Mercedes. In my opinion, you’ve got to be nuts to pay the premium, although I suppose that some people want it so badly, they’ll go for it. My dealer claims they have 3 build slots available for Jan/Feb. I refuse to pay a premium. I will make calls around the state and even neighboring states. Have you done same?

I talked to a Pinellas County dealer and they have a fully equipped EQS 580 pinnacle priced at 50,000 over Msrp. South Orlando dealer will place an order due in April at 10,000 over Msrp.

So could I assume that you’ve been calling around the state? Have you tried Lakeland and Gainesville? Wonder if all the dealers are sort of banding together and much of it depends on their allocation of builds.

I currently drive a Tesla S, but being a previous MB owner, providing the EQS has all I want, and then some, I’d order, but the premium doesn’t sit well with me.

I am discovering that the smaller dealers with low allocations and longer lead times (some over a year) are more willing to commit to lower premiums over msrp. Also, MBUX screen cars are more chip dependent and much harder to get than the the EQS models without the EQS feature.
