Make or break for #MercedesEQ ’s EV line up!! The new EQS is here following on form the AVTR Concept, and the EQS concept itself, it sets the story going forward.
Built at the new Factory 56, alongside the #MercedesBenz S Class, it features an impressive 770km of range in both models, the EQS 450+ and the top EQS 580 4Matic.
Under the skin are permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM) new generation of batteries with higher density and a single speed transmission. EQS can be charged with up to 200 kW at fast charging stations - 300KM in 15 mins! The chassis of the new EQS, with a four-link axle at the front and a multi-link axle at the rear, is closely related in design to the new S-Class.
As for power, the #EQS 450+ is RWD and gives 333BHP, 568NM and a 6.2 secs to 60. This is all from a single PSM on the rear. The 580 has 523 BHP, 855NM and gets to 60 in 4.3 secs, but from two motors 135 kW (front) and 255 kW (rear). Both have a Top speed 210KM.
The car is heavy though, RWD is 2480 KG and 2585 KG make both models 300kg heavier than the respective Taycan.
But there are loads of amazing luxury options, like automatic comfort doors at the front and rear, DIGITAL LIGHT headlight projectors, standard rear-axle steering and much more!
Design is totally different to the combustion cars and well dive into the 'Black Panel' grille and one bow/cab forward design. Bud all in all, with a cd of 0.2 - it’s the most aerodynamic production car in the world which means more range, and less noise!
But it’s going to split opinion, it it good looking enough and if not does the tech make up for it?
