Earlier this month, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the EQS and it is the EV equivalent of the S-Class. The EQS has been one of the most-awaited models in the electric vehicle market. However, Mercedes-Benz is all set to launch the EQS electric sedan in India. The vehicle has been listed on the brand's India website with the words "Coming Soon" mentioned.
The Mercedes-Benz EQS is the brand's first vehicle to use Mercedes-Benz's Electric Vehicle Architecture, a bespoke platform for EVs from Mercedes-Benz. This new bespoke platform will also underpin future EVs from Mercedes-Benz like the EQE, EQE SUV, and EQS SUV.
On the outside, the new EQS remains more or less similar to the EQS vision concept unveiled in 2019. It features angular headlights that are quite striking and are joined by a thin strip of the lighting element. The tail lamps also get a similar styling but can be ordered with an optional three-dimensional star pattern.
Unlike a few electric cars, there is no front boot under the clamshell bonnet and the bonnet can only be opened during the scheduled services. Cleverly, Mercedes-Benz has added a separate tray on the front left-hand side that swivels its way out to add washer fluid to clean the windscreen. The new EQS measures 5,216mm long and 1,512mm tall. However, it doesn't look its size in the pictures, thanks to the combination of the long-wheelbase (which happens to be longer than the latest S-Class at 3,210mm) and large 22-inch alloy wheels.
That's not all, the moment you are inside you will see a trio of large screens which is unlike any other cars in the market. The three screens are integrated neatly into a single piece of curved glass that runs across the dashboard. The claimed range for the Mercedes-Benz EQS is 770km, rated under the WLTP test cycle and both variants are limited to a top speed of 210kph.
Mechanically, the EQS is fitted with a 108kWh battery. The EQS 450 houses a single asynchronous motor capable of sending 334bhp of power and 458Nm of peak torque and the power is sent to the rear wheels. The luxury EV accelerates from 0-100kph in just 6.2seconds despite weighing 2480kgs. On the other hand, the EQS 580 model can sprint from 0-100kph in just 4.3seconds and pumps out 523bhp and 856Nm.
Thoughts About The New Mercedes-Benz EQS
The new Mercedes EQS may seem like a large A-class-based electric sedan in the images, but it takes the luxury quotient to a new level. The sedan will soon set new benchmarks for upcoming electric sedans in terms of luxury and comfort in the Indian market.
