By way of design and styling, the production-spec EQS retains numerous the Imaginative and prescient EQS’ cues, in addition to its swoopy silhouette and tipped-forward stance. The LED headlights are linked by a slim gentle bar, and there’s a sealed radiator grille space that includes a gloss black end, with a three-dimensional star sample out there as an choice.

Moreover, because of the flat ground, the EQS is claimed to have much more house for rear-seat passengers, with the twin-sunroof setup serving to create a way of airiness within the cabin. What’s extra, the EQS’ 610-litre boot can also be larger than that of the S-Class (550 litres).
At launch, the Mercedes-Benz EQS shall be out there in two variants – the single-motor EQS 450+ and EQS 580 4MATIC. Each variations get the identical battery pack – with 107.8 kWh of usable power content material – however have completely different energy outputs, and, at round 2.5 tonnes, weigh roughly the identical. The 450+ has 333 hp and 568 Nm of torque, and may do 0-100 kph in 6.2 seconds.
The 580 has 4MATIC all-wheel-drive and torque vectoring, has a complete output of 523 hp and 855 Nm of torque and a 0-100 kph time of 4.3 seconds. Each variants are restricted to a prime velocity of 210 kph. A model with a smaller battery is predicted to observe later this yr, together with an AMG model producing over 700 hp.
On a full cost, the Mercedes-Benz EQS has a spread of 770 kilometres (WLTP cycle). With DC quick charging at as much as 200 kW, Mercedes-Benz says the EQS can regain about 300 kilometres of vary in a mere quarter-hour. At house or at public charging stations, the EQS will be charged at as much as 22 kW (AC) utilizing the on-board charger. In Japan, bidirectional charging with the EQS will even be potential.
Mercedes-Benz launched India to the EQ model final yr, by launching the all-electric EQC SUV in our market. The Mercedes-Benz EQS is predicted to be a part of the 15 launches the corporate has lined up for India, and is more likely to arrive on our shores later this yr. However it definitely received’t come low cost – count on Mercedes-Benz EQS costs in India to be nearer to the Rs 2 crore mark (ex-showroom).
