How is AMG EQS different from EQS?

Mercedes-Benz India will bring in the EQS 580 to our shores later this year but has opted to first bring in the more capable AMG version of the vehicle.

While both these models are essentially the same and are electric versions of the flagship S-Class sedan, there is also much that's different.

Obviously, the AMG offers a performance oriented drive and therefore has more aggressive power and torque outputs. But visually, there are bits that are different too. A chrome-slatted panel at the front, AMG-styled alloy wheels and a rear spoiler are just a few of these.

Mercedes AMG EQS 53 sits at the very top of the company portfolio, both in terms of performance vehicles as well as battery-powered vehicles.

There is an increased focus on higher end luxury models within its range which could be exclusively powered by batteries instead of conventional fuels and engines.
