In Pics: Mercedes EQS electric sedan breaks cover
Mercedes EQS can pounce to 100 kmph in just 4.5 seconds.The EQS gets a choice between two battery packs - a 90 kWh or a high-performance 107.8 kWh.With a claimed range of well over 700 km per charge, the Mercedes EQS may outlast many of its direct and indirect rivals.
The EQS is the first product to be fully based on Mercedes' all electric platform. It has a smoothly-flowing front grille with the prominent Mercedes tri-star logo.
Its sweptback profile - hence the aerodynamic claim - adds to its sporty yet sophisticated touch while the rear profile is also kept typically clean, typically upmarket.
The EQS stands as a solid testament to what a company that is nearly a century old can do to stay forever young and dynamic.
What helps the EQS, and massively so, is that it is touted as the world's most aerodynamic car. It has a drag coefficient of just 0.20Cd. This is even better than the drag coefficient of 0.22Cd on the 2021 S-Class.
The major highlight, undoubtedly at that, is the ginormous 55-inch at the center that stretches from either extremities of the dashboard. Mercedes calls it MBUX Hyperscreen and it is an apt name.
The EQS from Mercedes has a claimed range of over 700 km, gets two battery pack options and hits 100 kmph in 4.5 seconds.
EQS will lead the thunder brigade of electric vehicles from Mercedes. It sits at the pinnacle of the company's EV portfolio which also has - or will have - EQA, EQB, EQC, EQV, EQE and an AMG EQ as well.
