More about Mercedes EQS model

This model features higher range figure of 770 kilometres (478 miles) for its upcoming sedan, which production is scheduled for later this year. That’s not that higher than the 700 km (just under 435 mi) which Mercedes quoted, but it is based on European WLTP methodology.


Based on the United States EPA testing cycle, the range rating will be lower, which open the possibility that the flagship’s EPA figure will be higher than previously estimated.

The range figure that they are talking about will be achieved with a 108-kilowatt-hour battery pack which, including all the luxury features, should make EQS heavy. Mercedes also claims that they have an industry-best drag coefficient of just 0.20, which will improve efficiency.

What about Tesla Model S?

With a Tesla Model S currently at 412 miles of range, and with their upcoming Plaid+ version, which is promising more than 500 miles, EQS can’t afford to arrive with less than 400 miles of range.

The EQS will be the first of four Mercedes electric cars for the U.S. market over the next two years. Production plans to start soon in Sindelfingen, Germany, and it’s starting to go on sale in the U.S. this fall.


What are future plans for Mercedes-Benz?

Future plans for this company are to produce an EQE sedan, which will be based on a similar platform as EQS, but it would step down in price, size and prestige. It’s is due to late 2021, with deliveries starting in 2022.

The EQS and EQE will be followed by SUV. Mercedes also has smaller electric cars planned, including EQA crossover, and a forthcoming EQB electric crossover, which is revealed earlier this year.
