Since 2019, Mercedes-Benz has graced the public with its sophisticated EQ series. The EQ stands for “electric intelligence” and boasts some of the most popular luxury electric vehicles on the market. The new lineup will feature exciting new cars in three model categories: EQC, EQE, and EQS.
What Cars Are in the Mercedes-Benz EQS Lineup?
The Mercedes EQS line includes spacious sedans for 5 passengers and a new US-based SUV.
Like its gas-powered cousin, the S-class Sedan, the EQS offers several high-tech and luxury features. One of its most impressive details is its touchscreen infotainment system that centralizes all the controls. Its sleek cohesive design and large buttons make it user-friendly.
There are two available versions of the EQS. The 450+ version contains a single electric motor and rear-wheel drive. According to the EPA, the EQS 450+ has a range of 350 miles per charge (though several reviews noted that it exceeds that range).
The second version of the EQS is the 580 4matic, featuring two motors and all-wheel drive.
What Cars Are in the Mercedes-Benz EQE Lineup?
The EQE is a 4-door sedan and the newest version will launch as 350+. The car will feature one of the longest ranges for electric vehicles, at 400 miles. In addition, the brand claims the EQE can speed up to 60 MPH within 5 seconds.
Another EQE model is the 500. The car has dual motors, an all-wheel drive, and 402 horsepower. These EQE vehicles are expected to make their entrance later this summer.
Meanwhile, you can expect a variant model, the Mercedes-AMG, to appear next year. Its impressive 677 horsepower and its torque of 738 pound-feet make it a highly coveted option. Moreover, the AMG will feature several of the same excellent specs as other models in the family while offering greater speed (60 MPH in 3.2 seconds).
What Cars Are in the Mercedes-Benz EQC Lineup?
The EQC boasts compact electric drivetrains, two motors, an asymmetrical cockpit, and 402 horsepower. It has a 4matic all-wheel drive, a more compact design, and you can get it in 64 colors. Additionally, it will be available in the AMG line.
How Long Does It Take To Fully Charge the EQ cars?
The charging time to take your Mercedes-EQ from empty to full will depend on the type of plug. Here is a general breakdown:
- A 3-pin plug at home takes 52 hours
- A 22KW (at home or work) will take up to 11 hours
