Mercedes-Benz EQS all-electric luxury sedan unveiled

The production-spec Mercedes-Benz EQS has been globally unveiled. The fully-electric luxury sedan from the German brand will take on the likes of the Tesla Model S.

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the production version of the EQS electric sedan. The car is based on the EQS Vision concept showcased by the brand back in 2019.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS is the first model to be underpinned by the brand’s latest EVA (Electric Vehicle Architecture) platform. It will be manufactured at Sindelfingen, Germany, alongside the conventional S-Class sedan.

The new EQS electric sedan measures 5,216 mm in length, 1,926 mm in width and 1,512 mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 3,210 mm and an aerodynamic drag coefficient of 0.20.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS comes with a gloss black panel with a three-dimensional star pattern in place of the conventional radiator grille. The front also comes with full-LED headlamps with integrated LED DRLs, connected together by an LED strip. The EQS is offered with a choice of alloy wheels ranging between 19 to 22 inches. The rear features LED taillights, again connected by an LED strip.

On the inside, the Mercedes-Benz EQS comes with the brand’s latest Hyperscreen, making up the entire dashboard with three digital displays. These include the instrument cluster, the touchscreen infotainment unit and a third display for the front passenger. The car comes with a host of other features and equipment as well.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS will be available in two variants – EQS 450+ and EQS 580 4MATIC. Both models are powered by a 107.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Mercedes-Benz claims that the EQS electric sedan will offer a maximum range of 770 km (WLTP Cycle) on a single charge and a top speed limited to 210km/h.

The EQS 450+ comes with a rear-mounted electric motor producing 334 BHP / 458 Nm. The EQS 580 features dual electric motors (one at each axle) and churns out 523 BHP / 856 Nm.
