The BMW i3 was a daring leap forward for electric vehicles(EVs), but it faced scepticism from those who clung to the status quo. With a range of only 80 to 100 miles, it was marketed primarily as an urban runabout. However, it marked a major stride in sustainable mobility, and with the advancements in technology, the latest generation of EVs has surpassed all expectations. The Mercedes-Benz EQS450+ is a testament to advancement in technology and sustainability.
Since its debut, the luxurious all-electric saloon from the Mercedes-EQ stable has received rave reviews for its advanced features, design and comfort. Built on a modular architecture specifically designed for executive-class EVs, the EQS offers a fusion of cutting-edge technology, sophisticated design, top-tier functionality, and seamless connectivity.
Singapore was the first country to welcome the Mercedes-Benz EQS 450+ and the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+, the latter of which boasts a plethora of exclusive features that are sure to elevate the luxury EV experience. Here are just five reasons why the Mercedes-Benz EQS 450+ is the new standard-bearer for high-performance all-electric vehicles.
The MBUX infotainment system is a revolutionary feature that delivers a powerful and immersive sound experience that heightens your driving experience. Using Burmester® surround sound system, the EQS features the two soundscapes Silver Waves and Vivid Flux. These specially designed audio systems generate an exceptional studio quality-like experience that’s perfectly in tune with the car’s driving status, selected driving mode, or driver’s preferences.
Powerful and Efficient Power.
With AMG-specific electric motors, these permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM) offer the perfect balance of power, efficiency, and noise control. With new windings, stronger currents, and inverters operated with state-of-the-art software, the electric motor on the rear axle is particularly impressive, with a six-phase design based on two windings with three phases each, ensuring a particularly powerful magnetic field.
Shorter Charging Times
Thirdly, the all-electric saloon boasts shorter charging times thanks to intelligent thermal management. The battery can be charged with up to 200 kW at quick-charging stations with direct current, adding another 300 kilometres of range in just over 19 minutes. The battery’s unique design ensures that it always maintains an optimal operating temperature, thanks to coolant that flows through the defined cavities in the aluminium extrusions of the battery frame.
A Futuristic and Driver Centric Interior Design
Next, the EQS450+ offers a sporty interior design with AMG seats in Nappa leather and numerous features that exude a distinctive style. The instrument panel, beltlines, door centre panels, and transition from the centre console to the dashboard all have a sporty feel, with space grey Artico man-made leather, black Mircrocut microfiber with red topstitching, and an AMG performance steering wheel in Nappa leather.
Intuitive and Advanced Interface
Finally, the ultra-luxurious saloon also comes equipped with the groundbreaking MBUX Hyperscreen, which delivers personalized suggestions for numerous infotainment, comfort, and vehicle functions. The adaptive software always displays the most important applications situationally and contextually on the top level, providing an unparalleled user experience.
These are just five reasons among a litany of advanced features that are changing the way we look at all-electric luxury sedans. The Mercedes-Benz EQS450+ is also a prime example of how electric cars are changing the future of sustainable mobility, offering power, efficiency, and style that’s perfectly in sync with cutting-edge technology.
