The Mercedes-Benz EQS is more than a year old, and the German carmaker has recently added two new variants for customers to choose from, the EQS 450 4Matic and the EQS 500 4Matic.
As a result, there are now six variants of EQS now available, including the initial EQS 450+ and EQS 580 4Matic from April, followed by the AMG-branded EQS 53 4Matic + in September and the EQS 350 in November – all four of which debuted in 2021.
The EQS 450 4Matic and EQS 500 4Matic both come with two electric motors for all-wheel drive – one in each axle – and share the same lithium-ion battery with 107.8 kWh (120 kWh gross) usable power. The rear-wheel drive EQS 450+ also uses the same battery, but the base EQS 350 is the only one with a capacity of 90.6 kWh (100 kWh gross).
In terms of output, the EQS 450 offers 4Matic 360 PS (355 hp or 265 kW) and 800 Nm of torque, which is good for a 0-100 km / h time of 5.6 seconds. Meanwhile, the EQS 500 4Matic’s more significant 449 PS (443 hp or 330 kW) and 855 Nm Century sprint takes just 4.8 seconds to complete.
Despite the differences in power and acceleration times, both new variants offer the same WLTP-rated range 685km, which is better than the EQS 350, EQS 580 4Matic and EQS 53 4Matic +, but worse than the EQS 450+. .
According to a teaser posted on the Mercedes-Benz Malaysia website, EQS has been advised to arrive in Malaysia soon. With the launch of EQA in March of this year, the company’s electric attack began here.
