Stuttgart- Germany: The EQS is the first all-electric luxury sedan from Mercedes-EQ. With it, Mercedes-EQ is redefining this vehicle segment. The EQS is also the first model to be based on the Mercedes-EQ modular architecture for luxury and executive-class electric vehicles. Fusing technology, design, functionality, and connectivity, the EQS will delight both drivers and passengers. As part of its Ambition 2039 initiative, Mercedes-Benz is working on offering a carbon-neutral new car fleet within 20 years. As early as 2030, the company wants more than half the cars it sells globally 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 with sustainability in mind. The vehicles are produced in a carbon-neutral manner with resource-saving materials such as carpets made from recycled yarn. Mercedes-Benz AG has had its climate protection targets confirmed by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTI).
With a great deal of meticulous work and a focus on purpose-driven design, aerodynamicists worked in close cooperation with designers of the EQS to achieve a new cd best value of 0.20. This makes the EQS the most aerodynamic production car in the world. The operating range benefits greatly as a result.
With a range of around 700 kilometres (WLTP) and an output of up to 385 kW, the powertrain of the EQS meets every expectation of a progressive sedan in the S-Class segment. The EQS 580 4MATIC Sedan has an electric powertrain (eATS) at both the front and rear axle.
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 via public charging stations, the EQS can be conveniently charged with up to 9.6 kW with AC using the on-board charger.
In Canada, the EQS will come with 3 years of Mercedes me Charge and Green Charging, giving customers the ability to charge at thousands of public charging stations coast-to-coast. Mercedes me Charge customers will benefit from the integrated payment function with automatic payment. The customer chooses the preferred payment method. After that, every charging process is then automatically debited – including abroad. The individual charging processes are clearly listed in a monthly invoice. The EQS 580 4MATIC Sedan will arrive in Canada in Fall 2021.
