Mercedes will tickle nerves not only Tesla: characteristics of new EQS


Mercedes-Benz unveiled its upcoming electric EQS ​​sedan this week in Los Angeles. The company rolled out two cars at once, one of which is a concept, and the second is a direct test version. Only last year, Mercedes-Benz launched its next-generation EQ electric car, along with EQC crossovers, and now, we already see a full-fledged electric S-Class.

You can say that Mercedes is slightly behind the engine, but it seems that he still managed to jump into the last car. The company says that this is only the beginning and in the future the number of “green” cars in the line will only grow. They introduced the concept of the car last year and plan to launch a production version on the market already in 2021.

Here’s how Mercedes-Benz describes the new EQS:

Thanks to the two electric motors that are located on the front and rear axles, as well as the battery lying under the bottom of the car, the EQS will become a very balanced model. The four-wheel drive provided by these engines gives not only impressive dynamic performance, but also high traffic safety. With more than 350 kW of power and instantly available torque of about 760 Nm, the EQS will be able to exchange the first hundred in just 4.5 seconds. However, Mercedes reports that in the production of the car, it may receive other modifications with different indicators.

Speaking of the remaining figures, the length of the S-segment electric car will reach 5295 mm, height – 1436 mm, and width – 2077 mm. The wheelbase of the novelty will be considerable 3260 mm. The basis of the EQS will be a huge battery with a capacity of 100 kWh.
