Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic+ To Launch In India On August 24
On August 24, the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic+, the company’s first-ever all-electric series production model, will be unveiled in India. In India, the standard Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 will debut around the next holiday season.
The Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic+ base model has a power output rating of 649 horsepower, while models with the Dynamic Plus package have a power rating of 751 horsepower in the Race Start mode. It has a 0-100kph time of 3.4 seconds. The Dynamic Plus cars have a maximum speed of 250 kph as opposed to the ordinary EQS 53’s 220 kph.
The 400V, 107.8kWh lithium-ion battery of the EQS 53, Affalterbach’s first series-produced EV, can be charged at up to 200kW using a fast charger. Depending on the package chosen, its range is estimated to range from 326 to 360 kilometers. Additionally improved is battery management, which aids in improved performance in Sport and Sport+ modes.
The flagship model for both the EQS line and Mercedes-lineup Benz’s of born-electric EVs will be the EQS 53 4Matic+. The forthcoming EV includes a multi-link front and rear suspension, but according to AMG, those parts have been modified in a way that “influences the driving dynamics.” It also has the Ride Control+ air suspension from AMG.
There are many driving settings that let you change the suspension, handling, power, and battery management. Additionally, the synthesised sound is modified to match the driving modes. The EQS 53 4Matic+ also features AMG style cues, evoking some of the ICE cars’ performance division’s ICE design cues, like a Panamericana grille rendition. The revised rear diffuser, side air intakes, and larger rear spoiler were added because AMG claims it undertook wind tunnel testing to optimize the airflow, even though the new machine equals the 0.23Cd of the regular EQS.
The Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic+ will debut in India on August 24 and the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 will come to our shores during the holiday season, as was already reported. While the latter will travel a Complete Knocked Down (CKD) route, the former will arrive as a Completely Built Unit (CBU). The Porsche Taycan Turbo S and the Audi RS e-tron GT will be competitors of the EQS 53 when it is released.
