Mercedes-Benz EQS - everything you need to know

The Mercedes-Benz EQS has two finishes, both of which are powered by a 108.7 kWh lithium-ion battery. This is everything we need to know about the new Mercedes-Benz EQS.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS launched earlier this week and will be on the road in select global markets later this year. It's a newcomer to the luxury electric vehicle (EV) field and will compete with the Tesla Model S, which has been leading the way for nearly a decade. The Mercedes-Benz EQS has two finishes, both of which are powered by a 108.7 kWh lithium-ion battery. This is everything we need to know about the new Mercedes-Benz EQS.

The EQS 450+ is a basic model with a single electric motor on the rear axle with a total power of 324 hp and a maximum torque of 568.

EQS 580 4MATIC is an all-wheel-drive (AWD) range interior trim panel with electric motors on the front and rear axles. The total power output here is 509 hp and the maximum torque is up to 855 Nm. It takes 4.1 seconds to reach a speed of 100 km / h from a standstill.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS is fully charged and can provide an impressive 770-kilometer driving range with WLTP cycle certification, which is more than any electric vehicle currently produced.

Then this new full-size EV sedan also introduced a new styling direction for the Mercedes-EQ series, keeping the drag coefficient at 0.20, making it the largest mass-produced aerodynamic model ever sold.

With 110 kW DC fast charging, EQS can charge 10% to 80% of electricity in 35 minutes, while a 240-volt household wall charger takes 11 hours in the same range.

Mercedes-Benz can work with public charging providers to develop its own supercharging network before the EQS reaches the dealership.

In terms of design, from the front, the plain black panel replaces the position we traditionally used to look at the grille. There are three small LED accessories on each headlight to evoke the appeal of other Mercedes S families, while a full-angle LED strip on the edge of the hood connects the headlights. The taillights have a spiral design, which Mercedes claims is inspired by the visible coils of old light bulbs. Of course, the tapered roof is more attractive for a coupe and appears to be inspired by the Mercedes-AMG 63 S four-door sedan.

Inside, it shows off the new MBUX Super Display, which is essentially a huge glass dash that integrates three independent information displays: dashboard, central infotainment system, and passenger-side auxiliary touchscreen.

MBUX Hyperscreen is a 56-inch wide curved glass panel that can accommodate three separate OLED displays. Directly in front of the driver is a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, while a 17.7-inch central touchscreen is used for the infotainment system. Passengers also have their own 12.3-inch touchscreen to avoid driver discomfort and are separated by a camera system that monitors the driver's attention and turns it off when the driver feels the driver has too much view.

The co-pilot can use the auxiliary touch screen to activate massage, heating, and ventilation functions for the driver and front passenger, and adjust climate control, ambient lighting, and audio settings. Passengers can also play their own music through Bluetooth headphones, as well as find and suggest the driver navigate.

t also provides a new feature called "Zero Layer" in the MBUX infotainment system software. In this mode, the full-screen map will appear on the center screen, and fixed audio controls in the lower center and settings in the upper left corner will enhance it. With the help of artificial intelligence, EQS can learn more about the driver's preferences and schedule, and suggest MBUX functions in small tiles overlaid on the map screen.

The Hyperscreen cell phone compartment and door handle "float" above the dash and door panel surface, and surrounding accent lighting appears around the edge. Metal trim in shades of pink is used on the vents, partition edges, and door panels, giving it a classy look.

At the rear, the only configurable seat is a bench, and there is no fixed center console here. The bench armrest is equipped with an MBUX tablet, which can be used as a standard 12.3-inch dual-screen remote control mounted on the back of the front seat. The rear seats also provide quick warming and massage functions.

It is also equipped with an optional AR head-up display, in which navigation signals are projected onto the windshield in the driver's field of vision. It also provides a full range of active driver assistance technology as standard equipment for EQS, including electronic adaptive cruise control, steering assist with automatic lane change, and automatic emergency braking for forward, reverse and intersection collisions.

If a collision is detected, the EQS can be raised approximately 2.8 inches via Pre-Safe Impulse Side technology to ensure more force is passed through the frame rather than distributed to the passenger compartment, and then also has a nap. of energy. function that can be used while charging. 

The Power Nap feature tilts the front seats, closes the panoramic windows and sky curtains, and plays a soothing sound. After a predetermined period of time, Power Nap will gently wake passengers up by activating ambient lighting and automatically returning the seat to the upright position. 

It is also equipped with an optional HEPA filter and an air quality sensor for outside and outside air. the cabin.
