Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ to launch in India on 24 August
On August 24, the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic+, the company's first-ever all-electric series production vehicle by the high-performance brand of Mercedes-Benz will be launched in India. The Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ will arrive in India via the CBU route, with local assembly for the EQS 450+ and EQS 580 4MATIC starting later.
The Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ electric sedan, is built on the AMG.EA platform is powered by two electric motors, one at each of the front and back axles and connected to a completely variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive. The regular model generates a maximum of 950 Nm of torque and 658PS of total output. With a battery charge level of at least 80%, the new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ sprints from 0-100 kmph in 3.4 seconds.
The Dynamic Plus package-equipped vehicles have a 760PS power output in Race Start mode.
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 km.
The new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+'s suspension, like the EQS from Mercedes-EQ, has a four-link axle in front and a multi-link axle in back. The AMG engineers deliberately enhanced the components and set them up to make the electric car as insane as it can be. While the AMG Ride Control+ suspension combines electronically controlled adjustable damping and rear-axle steering, this applies to both ride comfort and driving performance.
Five AMG Dynamic Select driving modes - Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual - are also included with the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+.
The highlight of the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is the MBUX Hyperscreen, a curved 56-inch "screen" stretching across the dash made up of smaller screens that serve as the EQS' central control system. When launched, the EQS 53 will rival the Porsche Taycan Turbo S and the Audi RS e-tron GT.
