The German giant Mercedes does not intend to let its compatriots Audi and BMW evolve alone in the field of electromobility. This is why Mercedes today presents its all-new EQS model, the first to be based on the modular architecture intended “luxury and higher category electric vehicles“.
The new Mercedes EQS is official!
A new 100% electric Mercedes, therefore, and which is intended “the most aerodynamic production car in the world“. Mercedes indeed promises to have worked meticulously on the details of the body, with obtaining an optimal penetration in the air, a key factor for an autonomy worthy of the name.
“If the EQS is a close relative of the new S-Class, it is however based on a 100% electric architecture. This completely new design has made it possible to develop a dedicated concept: with its One Bow lines and its Cab Forward design with tailgate, the EQS clearly stands out from vehicles with combustion engines, even at first glance.”Explains the manufacturer.
The German manufacturer mentions a range of up to 770 km (according to the WLTP cycle) and a power of up to 385 kW. The new Mercedes EQS thus promises to meet the requirements of an evolving sedan in the S-Class segment in terms of propulsion. Note that a 560 kW version is also planned. On the battery side, Mercedes is planning an XXL model of 107.8 kWh, with scalable software management (via OTA updates) to guarantee the longevity of the cells.
On board, but as an option, will also be able to take advantage of the all new Hyperscreen MBUX. This large, curved screen stretches almost from one A-pillar to the other. Three screens are placed under a cover glass and visually merge. The passenger’s 12.3 ″ OLED screen gives them their own display and control area.
Remember that by 2030, the company intends to sell more than half of its cars with electric propulsion, which includes 100% electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids. For its part, the Mercedes EQS will be available in dealerships at the start of the school year, at a price that should well exceed 100,000 €.
