Mercedes-Benz EQS, mercedes-EQ's first all-electric luxury sedan, will be displayed for the first time in the Middle East during Gitex Technology Week, the region's largest technology exhibition, which takes place from October 17 to 21, 2021. Mercedes-EQ, through the EQS, aims to redefine the electric vehicle sector, the first vehicle to rely on engineering standards for large electric luxury cars. With its state-of-the-art technology, elegant design, cutting-edge functionality and communication, EQS offers the highest levels of comfort to the driver and passengers.
Two models will initially be introduced on the market: the EQS 580 4MATIC with a 385 kW engine with total electricity consumption according to the new European Driving Cycle Test (NEDC): 17.4-21.4 kWh/100 km).
Followed by the EQS 4MATIC 580 with a 484 kW engine (total electricity consumption according to the new European Driving Cycle Test (NEDC): 23.9-21.5 kWh/100 km, CO2 emissions: 0 g/km). EQS 450+ in 2022 with a 245 kW engine (total electricity consumption according to the new European Driving Cycle Test (NEDC): 19.1-16.0 kWh/100 km, CO2 emissions: 0 g/km).
The best car in aerodynamics
Aerodynamic scientists, in close collaboration with designers, have achieved a new value for drag plants of 0.20, thanks to the details studied and the principles of practical design.
EQS has become the best aerodynamic vehicle in the world to enter the production line thanks to the low drag coefficient value. This low value has also helped to enhance the distance travelled by the car with the battery before charging is needed. The car is also among the best in terms of quiet movement, with low wind noise.
The EQS promises to launch a new generation of batteries with higher capacity. The larger battery among the two batteries stores usable power of 107.8 kWh, about 26 per cent larger than the EQC (EQC 400 4MATIC: total electricity consumption: 21.5-20.1 kWh/100 km, CO2 emissions: 0 g/km).
Developed within the company, the innovative battery management software allows remote updates (OTA), so that the power management system remains up-to-date throughout the life of the vehicle. For the chemical composition of the battery cell, the cobalt content in negative electrodes has been reduced to 10 percent.
The EQS can be charged up to 200 kilowatts at fast-current charging stations. The vehicle can travel up to 300 kilometres (according to the globally standardized light car test) after charging for only 15 minutes and can be charged up to 22 kilowatts using AC through the charger inside. Besides, there are many smart charging software that can be automatically activated by location and functions such as battery-saving charging functionality.
