Mercedes-Benz is dedicated to going for at least ten electric cars by 2022.
The very first has been revealed as the 2020 EQC, and others we understand of consist of the upcoming EQA compact hatchback and electric commercials like the eVito and eSprinter vans.
2021 Mercedes-Benz EQS Spy Shots
We now have fresh spy shots of an EQS, a large electric sedan to sit together with the S-Class. Mercedes officers have previously meant the car starting production in 2020, which suggests we’ll likely see it arrive in showrooms as a 2021 model.
The current prototype has lost a great deal of the camouflage gear of earlier testers, revealing that the EQS is a liftback sedan akin to the Tesla Model S, high-end versions of which will be its main target. Other targets will include an electric Jaguar XJ and possibly a big electric sedan from Volkswagen to substitute the terminated Phaeton.
Even though Mercedes is likewise dealing with a revamped S-Class, which is also due around 2020, the EQS will be unique, consisting of in regards to its platform. The platform will be a devoted battery-electric design known as the MEA2 (Mercedes Electric Architecture), and the EQS will be the very first application. MEA1 is found in the EQC and based on a modified version of Mercedes’ MHA platform for SUVs with internal-combustion engines.
We can see that the car is a lot lower and sleeker than your common Mercedes, including the CLS and AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. We can also see in a few of the shots that the doors will be frameless and feature extendable manages.
2021 Mercedes-Benz EQS Platform
The MEA2 platform has allowed the designers to include a long wheelbase and short overhangs front and rear, and although the EQS looks to be comparable in size to the mid-size CLS, the interior area ought to be on par or much better than a full-size S-Class.
Given the rapid improvement in battery technology, Mercedes is keeping quiet on specs for its future electric cars. To be competitive, we ‘d anticipate the EQS to use a range between 250 and 300 miles on a single charge. The vehicle will also most likely feature an 800-volt electric system enabling it to make use of ultra-fast charging.
Beyond this EQS in Mercedes’new EQ family of EVs, we can likewise expect a little electric sedan being in the same category as the C-Class.
