EQS Final Notes
Mercedes Porsche Mechanic | Midtown Auto Repair | Services | Sacramento
The EQS is Mercedes-Benz’ first fully-electric sedan and it is going to debut on April 15th. Mercedes-Benz has dropped a few hints throughout the manufacturing and testing process but now, with the long-awaited release just days away, here are the final details that Mercedes-Benz has announced.
There will be at least two trim levels. The EQS 450+ and the EQS 580 4MATIC+. An AMG version is probably in the works but nothing is confirmed. As of right now you can bet on just two trims on April 15th. The EQS is going to be able to travel up to about 480 miles on a single charge. That range is probably in correspondence with the 107.8 kWh battery. The EQS will also be available with a 90 kWh battery which will have a slightly shorter range.
The overall shape of this EV is going to be slippery. The EQS will achieve a record-low drag coefficient of just .20, which beats the previous record of .22. The drag coefficient of a car is a common measure in automotive design as it pertains to aerodynamics. It is a function of the drag force on the car, the density of the air, the frontal area of the car, and the speed that the car is traveling. This low drag coefficient helps make for a quieter cabin since the car will slide more smoothly through the air, reducing wind noise.
As for charging, the EQS will be able to be charged at up to 200 kW at fast charging stations with DC current. This translates to about 186 miles of range in 15 minutes. With the optional on-board AC charger, the EQS will be able to be charged up to 22kW.
Lastly, the interior will feature a massive Hyperscreen. A 56-inch curved screen, which will stretch across the entire width of the dashboard. It will incorporate a gauge cluster, Mercedes-Benz’ infotainment system, and passenger display all into a single unit.
The Mercedes-Benz EV is finally here and is set to give Tesla, Audi, and Porsche a run for their money. Keep an eye out for the all-new Mercedes-Benz EQS because they will be hitting the roads in just a few days.
