Mercedes EQ has revealed their flagship all-electric luxury sedan with the reveal of the EQS. Positioned as the S-Class equivalent in their EV lineup, the new EQS features an aerodynamic profile that allows the car to achieve a range of 400+ miles (WLTP) and can charge at up to 200kW when plugged into a fast-charging station. These fast charging capabilities allow the luxury sedan to achieve over 180 miles in just 15 minutes.
The EQS will initially be available in two trims: the EQS 450+ with 329 hp and the EQS 580 4MATIC with 516 hp. A 630 hp performance variant is planned for sometime in the future. 0-60 happens in 5.5 seconds in the 450+ while the 580 gets there in just 4.1. The top speed in both cars has been limited to 130 mph. The combination of efficiency and performance is attributed to the car's aerodynamics, which the company says is the most aerodynamic production car on the planet.
As you can imagine, the EQS is loaded with a mountain of technologies with up to 350 sensors and an AI system that monitors everything from the car's performance to weather and the well-being of the passengers. What's bound to be its most talked about feature is the Hyperscreen, which combines three OLED screens in a seamless, one-piece glass panel.
The EQS will arrive in showrooms this fall.
