Mercedes Benz has launched the facelift version of its flagship electric sedan EQS in its 2024 iteration. The German auto giant has updated one of the most luxurious electric cars in the world with minor design tweaks and, more importantly, a larger battery which ensures the EQS can now run longer than before on a full charge. The new EQS is expected to go on sale in global markets soon with bookings open from April 25. The German carmaker is expected to bring in the EQS facelift electric vehicle (EV) to India later.

The biggest change in the 2024 Mercedes EQS is the larger battery pack. The carmaker has increased its capacity by 10 per cent, from 108.4 kWh to 118 kWh. This also means that the average range of the electric sedan has also gone up. The EQS 450 4MATIC version of the EV now promises to offer range of up to 799 kms instead of 717 kms on offer earlier. The EQS 450+ version will come with more range on offer. The carmaker claims it can run up to 822 kms on a single charge. The range claimed are based on WLTP cycle and may differ in other countries.
