The vehicle has the largest screen, the highest range (so far), the most features, shocking physical touchpoints, softest headrest, front passenger screen embedded on the dashboard, fingerprint scanner, facial recognition scanner, massage for a driver’s seat among other amazing features.
The EQS will sprint 0 to 60 mph in a little over 4 seconds and will be speed-limited to 130 mph.
The vehicle will come in two battery sizes: 108kWh battery which has an estimated range of up to 770km and 90kWh battery.
EQS is a 400-volt architecture that is liquid-cooled through special cavities cast into the aluminum battery housing. This automatically preheats or cools the battery as needed before charging thus speeding up the charging.
The EQS will add about 300km in 15 minutes when plugged into a 200kWh fast charger making it faster than most other Mercedes.
The vehicle will come in rear-wheel drive with 329 horsepower and all-wheel drive with 516 horsepower. It will also be compatible with about 90% of public charging stations in the US.
The hyper screen is separated into three screens embedded in one solid curved glass and is powered by 8CPU cores, 24GB RAM, and 46.4GB-per-second RAM memory bandwidth.
The operating system uses AI to learn frequently used features, then surfaces those features as individual widgets on the main screen. This will enable drivers to find 90% of what they are looking for without scrolling through the menus or using the voice assistant.
Like any other good luxurious EV, the EQS allows you to factor battery capacity into your route planning.
EQS has four driving models; Eco, Comfort, Sport, and Individual, which you toggle by pressing a button in the center console next to the start/stop button.
Seemingly, EQS will be the first Mercedes EV to come to North America and the company has promised to release 10 new EVs by 2022.
