Mercedes-Benz EQS specs revealed
Mercedes-Benz has disclosed the numbers behind the four main configurations of its impending electric flagship, the EQS. As it turns out, all four have AWD.
Before we begin, let’s just mention that the car, which bears the model designation W297, is 5.1 meters (16.73 feet) long and is only 70 mm (2.7 inches) shorter than the new W223 S-Class. It is also 8 mm (0.3”) taller than the S-Class.
The entry-spec EQS 450 offers 348 PS (343 hp / 256 kW) and 440 kilometers (273 miles) of range until charging becomes necessary. Prices in the United States are expected to start barely over $80,000. The EQS 450+ will get you farther with its 550 km (342 miles) of range, but it will come at nearly one hundred grand.
The EQS 580 brings 516 PS (509 hp / 379 kW) to the table along with 500 km (310 miles) of range. Finally, the range-topping AMG version will pack 630 PS (621 hp / 463 kW); range numbers are pending.
Options will include power-assisted doors (all four; not even the S-Class has a feature like that), as well as a spacious cabin and a display spanning the entire front fascia width.
The MEA-based liftback will be fully revealed in the first half of the current year and go into production at the same Factory 56 in Sindelfingen, Germany where the latest S-Class is being assembled.
