Hotter Mercedes-AMG EQS sedan spotted in tests

May 4, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

The journalists published photos from the tests of the prototype of the “charged” electric car Mercedes-AMG EQS. The car received a rather dense camouflage, which makes it difficult to see its exterior.

Recently, reporters caught a glimpse of another Mercedes-AMG EQS prototype with less camouflage than before. Retaining the yellow brake calipers, small rear wing and other (minor) exterior features seen on earlier prototypes of the “charged” sedan, this one received higher profile discs (275/40 on 21 “rims).

The electric sedan from Mercedes-Benz, which will receive the EQS designation, includes all the latest technologies that only the German brand has at its disposal, but representatives of the latter have already promised that a more powerful version of the luxury electric car with 715 hp is on the way.

While the camouflage makes the car a little tricky to distinguish from other Mercedes models, the automaker couldn’t hide those large ceramic discs or those yellow brake calipers.

Despite being effectively camouflaged, a small spoiler can be discerned on the trunk. Small exits behind the rear wheels also speak of a high level of performance, as well as a well thought out aerodynamics of this car. With camouflage front and rear, it’s hard to see how else the brand will choose to showcase the car’s performance.

Of course, performance figures are currently unknown, but the EQS in the 580 version already develops 516 hp. This is enough to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.3 seconds. This version of the car is quite heavy – it weighs 2,582 kg.

It is worth noting that Mercedes has already registered the trademarks EQS43, EQS53 and EQS63 – apparently they are reserved specifically for the “charged” versions of the electric vehicle. Rumor has it that the car will debut later this year or early 2022.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote about a comparative test, which determined the best executive car – Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7-Series and Audi A8 were considered. The carwow team decided to compare three German executive sedans – Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7-Series and Audi A8. The cars were compared in appearance, interior arrangement, noise level, number of technologies, etc.
