MERCEDES-BENZ EQS electric sedan

MERCEDES-BENZ EQS electric sedan

The EQS is the first all-electric luxury saloon from Mercedes-EQ. With it, Mercedes-EQ is redefining this vehicle segment. The EQS is also the first model to be based on the modular architecture for luxury and executive-class electric vehicles. Fusing technology, design, functionality and connectivity, the EQS delights both drivers and passengers. First models on the market will be the EQS 450+ with 245 kW and the EQS 580 4MATIC with 385 kW

MERCEDES-BENZ EQS design

As part of its Ambition 2039 initiative, Mercedes-Benz is working on offering a carbon-neutral new car fleet within 20 years from now. By as early as 2030, the company wants more than half the cars it sells to feature electric drive systems – this includes fully electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids. In many areas, Mercedes-Benz is already thinking about tomorrow today: the new EQS is designed to be correspondingly sustainable. 

MERCEDES-BENZ EQS charging 

The EQS can be charged with up to 200 kW at fast charging stations with direct current. Power for up to another 300 kilometres (WLTP) is recharged in just 15 minutes***. At home or at public charging stations, the EQS can be conveniently charged with up to 22 kW with AC using the on-board charger. In Japan, bidirectional charging with the EQS will also be possible, i.e. charging in both directions. In addition, there are various intelligent charging programmes that can be activated automatically depending on the location, and functions such as particularly battery-saving charging. 

MERCEDES-BENZ EQS navigation

Navigation with Electric Intelligence plans the fastest and most convenient route, including charging stops, based on numerous factors, and reacts dynamically to traffic jams or a change in driving style, for example. A new feature of the EQS is a visualisation in the MBUX infotainment system (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) showing whether the available battery capacity is sufficient to return to the starting point without charging.  

MERCEDES-BENZ EQS hyperscreen

The MBUX Hyperscreen is the absolute highlight in the interior. This large, curved screen unit sweeps almost from A-pillar to A-pillar. Three screens sit under a cover glass and appear to merge into one. The 12.3-inch OLED display for the front passenger gives him or her their own display and control area. The entertainment functions are only available there while the car is being driven in accordance with the country-specific legal regulations. Mercedes-EQ relies on an intelligent, camera-based locking logic: if the camera detects that the driver is looking at the front passenger display, it is automatically dimmed.
