Mercedes has got a lot to say in regards to electric vehicles and this week they've unveiled five new additions that cover almost every major class of automobile. One of the most exciting announcements is a preview of the all-electric G-Class with the EQG Concept. The overall design stays true to the classic G-Class aesthetic with its utilitarian styling that has been enhanced with modern details from the EQ family. Elements like the grille have been updated with a Black Panel Grille that features an illuminated star with an animated pattern of squares that's surrounded by an LED band. The LED accents also find their way to the front of the roof rack, exterior mirror housings, side panels, and the rear end's wall box.
The Concept EQS Mercedes-Maybach
The Concept EQS Mercedes-Maybach previews the most luxurious expression of Mercedes-EQ. The signature Maybach grille is updated with a new look, bringing a bolder interpretation of the EQ line's black panel front while staying true to the Maybach design language with vertical pinstripes at the front and rear. The exterior has also been finished in a two-tone paint that's divided by a thin chrome pinstripe while the interior is as plush and luxurious as you would expect with options for folding tables, champagne flutes, refrigerated compartments, and a spacious rear seat area.
The EQS is getting a new sibling in the form of an executive sedan called the EQE. The EQE's wheelbase is 3.5 inches shorter with dimensions that are similar to the CLS and interior dimensions that a larger than the current E-Class. The EQE will launch with the EQE 350, a 288 hp model that will have a range of more than 400 miles (WLTP). The EQE is set for launch in mid-2022.
The AMG EQS
AMG debuts its first all-electric model with a high-performance version of the EQS. The Mercedes-AMG EQS will have an AMG-specific electric motor at the front and rear axles, which will produce 751 hp and 752 lb-ft of torque when the AMG Dynamic Plus package is equipped. This allows for a 0-62 time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. The car will also feature an AMG-specific sound, a 400-volt battery, AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive, AMG Ride Control+ suspension with adaptive adjustable damping, standard rear-axle steering, and an AMG high-performance compound braking system.
