An all-electric Mercedes-Benz EQS sedan has gone on sale. The base price of an EQS 450+ rear-wheel-drive version is more than 106,000 euros.
The Mercedes-Benz EQS, the first electric car in the luxury limousine class, resembles the concept of a rather distant future both outside and inside. Meanwhile, this “spaceship” has gone into series production and become available for order.
From the start of sales, wealthy customers will be offered two versions of the Mercedes-Benz EQS: the aforementioned rear-wheel-drive EQS 450+ and an all-wheel-drive EQS 580 4MATIC.
The cheaper version, if this notion can be applied to vehicles of this segment, will cost from 106,374 euros. The power of the Mercedes EQS 450+ engine reaches 245 kW or 333 hp. The peak torque is 419 lb-ft/ 568 Nm.
The all-wheel-drive Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC has a more powerful engine of 523 horsepower and a maximum torque of 631 lb-ft/855 Nm.
Thus, the brand has expanded its lineup of electric vehicles to five models. In addition to the EQA, EQB, and EQC crossovers, it includes the EQV minivan.
As for the Mercedes-Benz EQS, the limousine currently has no direct competitors. Volvo will definitely turn its flagship S90 into an electric car, but that’s just plans.
