If you’ve been keeping up with our blogs section, you would know that Mercedes-EQ, the EV sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz, has taken the wraps off its first all-electric luxury sedan, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS. The EQS will be available later this fall, and we at Mercedes-Benz of Arrowhead in Arrowhead, AZ, cannot wait to have it in our lot. In this blog, we will tell you how fast it will be and its top speed- especially when you consider that it’s an EV? If you’re curious, keep reading below.
Mercedes-Benz has dropped a few key specs of the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS before it hits dealerships, and front the looks of it; it’s nothing short of EV excellence! The EQS comes with an impressive 478-mile electric drive range, and it’s also the world’s most aerodynamic-efficient car, which will, in return, help it achieve incredible speeds.
How Fast will it be?
The 2022 EQS will come in two trims – 450+ and 580 4MATIC. The 2022 Mercedes Benz EQS 450+ can accelerate from 0-60 mph in a mere 5.5 seconds, while the 4MATIC all-wheel drive-equipped EQS 580 4MATIC can do the same in as little as 4.1 seconds. Both the models offer an estimated top speed of 130 mph, which has been limited for safety reasons. Nonetheless, that’s plenty fast for a full-size all-electric luxury sedan. The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS can even charge quickly and gain up to 186 miles of range with just 15 minutes of charging using its 200kW DC fast charger.
2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS trims and performance
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS 450+ is powered by a 107.8 kWh battery-powered rear-wheel electric motor that produces 329 horsepower and 406 lb.-ft. of torque.
