Bloomberg review of the Mercedes EQS EV

Mercedes EQS

Bloomberg »

Saying a silent prayer, I slipped behind the steering wheel and saw more than 100 miles remained as available driving range. Thank God! (Or Daimler.) I whipped it around—the EQS is more than 17 feet long, but can do a U-turn in less space than a Toyota Camry—and forged into traffic.

The EQS has a 485-mile driving range—besting the Tesla Model S’s 412 miles and Porsche Taycan’s sub-300 miles, though a bit short of the 516 miles promised by the $139,000 Lucid Air GT. It’s so exemplary, and the car so capable, that range anxiety was limited to that one brief parking lot panic. It will charge to 80% of capacity in 31 minutes with DC fast charging, which is about the going rate.

What Mercedes is providing is a spacious, powerful, elegant, and advanced saloon that makes its passengers feel comfortable and confident—and also happens to be electric. The EQS is not perfect, but it’s good. Time spent in its confines felt like an escape from the banalities of daily life. After my grocery store run, I took the long way home.

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS achieved 422 miles (679 km) range in real world test, far exceeding other EVs and EPA-estimates

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS

The Mercedes Benz EQS 450+ overdelivers.

Edmunds »

Our EQS 450+ test car was surprisingly light on options. Options can add weight and sometimes introduce additional types of inefficiencies, so this particular EQS was primed for our test. It was equipped with the standard 20-inch wheels with “range-optimized summer tires” (Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5, 255/45 R20) at all four corners, inflated to the factory-recommended pressure of 41 psi. Our test car weighed in at 5,500 pounds on the nose, which is exceptionally heavy for a sedan — to put that figure in context, the last S-Class we tested weighed in at 5,069 pounds.

Over the course of a lengthy 12-hour stint in the EQS 450+ at an average temperature of 67 degrees, we managed to travel a total of 422 cheek-numbing miles. That’s 72 miles more than the EPA estimate, an improvement of more than 20%. This stunning performance lands the EQS 450+ in first place on our leaderboard, and not by a whisker. The previous leaders from Tesla now trail the Benz by a whopping 77 miles.

So, what can 2022 Mercedes-Benz owners expect to pay at “the pump”? After charging the battery back to full, which took about 20 hours on our Level 2 charger, we calculated an Edmunds consumption rate of 29.5 kWh/100 miles, which is 15.7% more efficient than the EPA estimate of 35 kWh/100 miles. If we lived in Hawaii, our 422-mile trip in the EQS would have cost us $41.08, while if we lived in Washington, that same trip would cost just $12.45.

Mercedes EQB

Peter Sigal, Automotive News Europe »

The EQB – essentially a battery-powered of the combustion-engine GLB — was unveiled at the Shanghai auto show in April. It is part of Mercedes’ EQ full-electric range, which also includes a sibling model, the EQA compact crossover; the EQS luxury sedan (launched this year), the EQE large sedan and the EQC midsize sedan.

Mercedes has not released prices for the EQB. The GLB starts at about 40,000 euros ($46,000) in Germany, with the top AMG four-wheel-drive model at 57,000 euros.

The EQB comes standard with five seats, with an optional third row that is intended for smaller passengers, up to 1.65 meters, Mercedes says. The second row can also move forward by up to 140 mm to give more space for third-row passengers.
