Depending on the vehicle equipment and configuration, WLTP ranges of up to 660 kilometres
are possible. The torque sent to the wheels by the respective eATS (electric drive train) is checked 10,000 times per minute and adjusted if necessary. This enables a much faster response in the versions with 4MATIC than with mechanical all-wheel drive.
As standard, the EQS SUV has rear-axle steering with a steering angle of up to 4.5 degrees, and as special
equipment even up to 10 degrees. The turning circle is reduced from 11.9 to 11.0 metres with 10-degree
The electric motor on the rear axle has 2 windings with 3 phases each. The 6-phase design makes this
permanently excited synchronous motor (PSM) particularly powerful. Its peak power is 265 kW.
DIGITAL LIGHT (special equipment) has a light module in each headlamp with three extremely bright LEDs
whose light is refracted and directed with the help of 1.3 million micro-mirrors. The resolution is therefore more than 2.6 million pixels per vehicle.
With the MBUX Hyperscreen (special equipment), multiple displays merge seamlessly to create an impressive curved screen band over 141 centimetres wide. The area perceived by the occupants measures
2432.11 sq. cm.
The large glass covering the MBUX Hyperscreen is curved in three dimensions in a moulding process at
temperatures of approx. 650°C. This process allows a distortion-free view of the display unit across the
entire width of the vehicle, irrespective of the radius of the glass cover.
A lithium-ion battery with up to 12 cell modules is installed in the EQS SUV. With this generation of batteries, a major step has been achieved in terms of the sustainability of the cell chemistry: the optimised active material consists of nickel, cobalt and manganese in a ratio of 8:1:1.
The optional driving sound of the EQS SUV is interactive and reacts to a good dozen different parameters
such as the position of the accelerator pedal, speed or energy recovery.
No.6 MOOD mimosa is the name of the fragrance composed especially for the EQS SUV, based on the aroma of dark chocolate. It bears the number 6 because the first electric cars were added to the model range in 1906 in the form of the “Mercédès Electrique” vehicles. No.6 MOOD mimosa is an earthy fragrance with a touch of sensuality.
To get to the most important applications of MBUX, the user has to scroll through 0 menu layers. Hence
the term zero layer.
Head-up displays are available in two sizes as an option. The Augmented Reality Head-up Display shows
relevant information and actions three-dimensionally in the real driving situation and surroundings. Its display area has a diagonal of 77 inches. A virtual colour image seems to float in the field of vision at a distance of about 10 metres.
The HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter as part of the optional ENERGIZING AIR CONTROL Plus, with a volume of 9.82 cubic decimetres, cleans the incoming outside air at its very high filtration level. Up
to 99.75 percent of particles are separated out. Around 600 grams of activated charcoal are used to neutralise odours. The adsorption area is equivalent to about 150 football pitches.
For haptic feedback during operation, a total of 12 actuators are located under the touch screen surfaces
of the MBUX Hyperscreen. If a finger touches certain spots there, they trigger a tangible vibration in the cover plate.
1 Coating of the cover glass simplifies cleaning of the MBUX Hyperscreen. The curved glass itself consists
of particularly scratch-resistant aluminium silicate.
8 CPU cores, 24 GB RAM and 46.4 GB per second RAM memory bandwidth are some of the MBUX
A DC fast charging system with a charging capacity of up to 200 kW is fitted on board for (fast) direct
current charging. In 15 minutes, power corresponding to a range of up to 250 kilometres can be recharged on the basis of the WLTP range.
The brightness of the MBUX Hyperscreen is adjusted to the ambient conditions using the measurement data from 1 multifunction camera plus 1 light sensor.
With up to 7 profiles, the display area for the front passenger on the MBUX Hyperscreen can be
And last but by no means least, “Hey Mercedes” supports 27 languages with Natural Language Understanding (NLU).
