The New Mercedes-EQ
The dream of an electric future has arrived.
The Mercedes-EQ is the latest expression of this electric future. It is a flagship sedan that is guided by the standards set by the S-Class sedan.
The EQS has its own engineering set based on a new modular architecture for luxury and executive-class electric vehicles. This is an architecture that fuses technology, design, functionality and connectivity into a single vehicle that is advanced and future-forward. The result is an electric flagship sedan that will delight both drivers and passengers.
The EQS wears the most aerodynamic body ever created in a production vehicle. A wind tunnel test gave the EQS a 0.20 drag coefficient – a number only reserved for advanced concept vehicles. One result of this low drag coefficient is an absence of wind noise which creates an experience that is quiet and relaxed.
The driving experience will be beyond anything Mercedes-Benz has ever produced. You may never need to use the brake pedal to slow down, thanks to the DAuto recuperation program. While it slows the vehicle down to a standstill, it also recoups energy back to the battery pack for further range.
The next generation of batteries will be installed in the EQS. The larger of the two will have a usable energy content of 107.8 kWh – a large volume battery compared to most electric vehicles. Recharging will also be robust with DC fast charging capability up to 200 kW. Using this method of recharge, the EQS can be charged to around 186 miles of range in just 15 minutes.
The Mercedes me Charge helps simplify the entire process of locating, using and paying for charging on all major US networks. Complimentary 30-minute sessions at all Electrify America DC fast chargers are included for two years. You can find these and other charging stations across the Metroplex and beyond.
Inside, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience will come to life in the first production application of the Hyperscreen. The full-length screen across the instrument panel will be the hub of the EQS experience. Integrated within the Hyperscreen is a navigation system with Electric Intelligence. This will enable the EQS to find the nearest charging station when you need it, along with advanced capabilities to monitor traffic and to gauge battery capacity. The MBUX will also facilitate Over The Air updates to the system and the vehicle.
As we live in a time when we have extra care about our environment inside, the EQS will feature ENERGIZING AIR CONTROL PLUS. This advanced filtration system uses a High Efficiency Particulate Air filter that traps fine particles to keep the interior environment clean and free from anything that would expose the EQS’s occupants to potential health issues.
The EQS is available in two models. The EQS 450+ has 329 horsepower from a single Permanently Excited Synchronous motor. There is 417 pound-feet of torque available instantly to power your EQS across the Metroplex. For more performance, the EQS 580 4MATIC® offers 516 horsepower from two motors, attached to each axle. This model also has 631 pound-feet of torque for quick off-line acceleration.
Coming later in the model year is the AMG® EQS powered by a set of enhanced motors that put out 649 horsepower. It offers a boost function that raises the horsepower number to 751. It also does come with an emotive sound that is truly AMG®. You can choose from Authentic or Performance through the AMG® SOUND EXPERIENCE. Whichever sound you choose, it will make your drive a more exciting one – as expected in an AMG®.
The dual motor system also drives the AMG® Performance 4MATIC®+ all-wheel drive system. As an electric vehicle, this system enables performance traction upon the driver’s request. Normally, you have 700 pound-feet of torque available. If you switch your AMG® EQS into RACE START mode, that torque rate increases to 752 pound-feet.
No matter which EQS you choose, you are on the cutting edge of Mercedes-Benz technology. This electric flagship was engineered to be “The Best or Nothing,” as uncompromised as your expectations from us.
