Although electric cars are more and more common to see nowadays and we are getting quite used to that, it still surprises us when Mercedes Benz, for example, announces it’s launching its first all-electric Sedan.
The upcoming model is the Mercedes Benz EQS, which is a counterpart to the Mercedes S-Class models and it’s the German automaker’s debut electric vehicle. The EQS has rewritten everything we knew about luxury, comfort and design. According to their website: “the era of electric luxury begins now”.
It includes advanced #MBUX Hyperscreen made of high-quality glass that extends across the entire dashboard and a face-recognition system that will automatically adjust the settings to fit the designated driver’s preferences.
The new model also includes a surprising element: a Power Nap option. This feature will allow drivers to rest during long trips and charging periods by creating a soothing environment. The
Power Nap mode will automatically make the seats recline to a resting position, the windows and the glass roof’s sunshade will dim, and interior light and temperature will adjust accordingly. You will also be able to opt for relaxing sounds and images of the night sky to appear on the dash.
The EQS will allegedly offer up to 516 horsepower and 611 pound-feet of torque, and in addition its range will apparently cover up to 478 miles, which approximately translates into 770 km.
The upcoming Mercedes Benz’ electric model will hit the dealerships later this year. Mercedes Benz has set the bar too high, but it’s definitely not the only automaker working on electric versions of their vehicles.
Volkswagen has released a teaser of its new ID.6 electric SUV’s silhouette ahead of Shanghai Auto show debut on the 21st of April. On the other hand, BMW has also committed to transform its iconic Minis into full electric vehicles as of year 2030.
