Charging the Mercedes-Benz EQS Electric SUV

Everything Mercedes-Benz EQS Drivers Need to Know About Charging an Electric Vehicle

The Mercedes-Benz EQS is the first of Mercedes’ fully-electric vehicles as part of the EQ sub-brand. This luxury sedan is the pinnacle of opulence in the EV space with a sleek body, immaculate cabin and state-of-the-art features to appeal to high-end buyers looking to go electric.

The EQS is available in three trim levels: Premium, Exclusive or Pinnacle; and two different powertrains: rear-wheel drive (EQS 450+) or all-wheel drive (EQS 580 4Matic). The EQS 450+ starts at around $102,310, while the EQS 580 4Matic starts at $125,900. Buyers opting for the top-level trim will find creature comforts such as heated-and-ventilated front and rear seats, massage functions for the front seats, four-zone automatic climate control, a head-up display, and more.

On the interior, the MBUX infotainment system steals the show, especially if buyers opt for the 56-inch-long Hyperscreen. This Hyperscreen is a giant display that spans the whole dashboard and consists of three separate screens (the 12.3-inch gauge cluster, the 17.7-inch central touchscreen, and the 12.3-inch passenger-side touchscreen), making the sedan look ultra-futuristic.

Mercedes-Benz EQS Charging & Range

The EQS 450+’s rear axle mounted 245 kW electric motor provides the driver with 529 horsepower, 417 lb-ft of torque, and 350 miles of all-electric range. The EQS 580 4Matic ups the ante with dual motors in the front and rear which offer 516 combined horsepower and 631 lb-ft of torque. Owners of the 4Matic EQS will have to surrender 10 miles of range for four-wheel drive.

According to the EPA, the EQS 450+ is the most efficient model, earning ratings of 97 MPGe city, 97 MPGe highway, and 97 MPGe combined. The EQS 580 has slightly lower ratings of 92 MPGe for city driving, but higher ratings for highway of 99 MPGe, leading to a combined rating of 95 MPGe.

To take full advantage of fast home charging, Mercedes EQS owners will want to install a 48-amp home EV charger, such as the JuiceBox 48, which has a standard J1772 plug that works with any electric vehicle on the market.
