Mercedes opens order books for flagship all-electric EQS
Mercedes-Benz has opened order books for its all-electric EQS, with prices starting at Â£ 99,995.
The flagship 333 hp premium electric vehicle has a range of up to 453 miles (WLTP) powered by its 107.8 kWh lithium-ion battery.
It is also the first Mercedes model to use the brand’s new modular platform architecture designed specifically for large luxury and executive class electric vehicles.
The new model also features the new MBUX hyper-display with multiple displays that merge under a single piece of glass to create a curved display over 141 centimeters wide.
The MBUX hyper-display is available on AMG Line Premium EQS and above models; priced at an additional Â£ 7,995.
The 107.8kWh battery has an on-board 200kW DC charger, allowing it to charge 10-80% in 31 minutes. That’s enough to deliver an additional 186 miles of range in 15 minutes.
