Mercedes EQS, Now Available To Order In The UK From £99,995
Now it sounds as though the Daily Car Blog has become a car dealership by headline quoting the cost of the all-electric Mercedes EQS. The fact is motoring journalism is 90 percent dealership focused, 5 percent begging, 4 percent spell and grammar checking, and 1 percent is actually spent on doing motoring journalism. Motoring journalism doesn’t do critical analysis, if it did many people would lose their livelihoods. It’s just how it works. We didn’t make the rules, they were set this way, but we certainly have no desire to follow these unwritten rules. So, we’re going off-topic. The Mercedes EQS is not an all-electric future variant of the Mercedes S Class sedan. It is an all-electric Mercedes sedan. An apology tour, an act of forgiveness conjured up by Mercedes after their tacit involvement in the whole Dieselgate saga. The EQS was forced on Mercedes, if it were not for Dieselgate then the EQS would not exist.
That is to say, Mercedes would have continued marketing their so-called ‘clean’ diesel engine technology for as long as forever lasts. But even we have to give Mercedes credit for actually embracing electric car technology they never wanted. The reality is the electric car was forced upon Mercedes due to the fallout over dieselgate and pressure from the EU, which is basically Germany. And so you, the UK consumer (the top 1 percent) you can play your part in rescuing Mercedes’ reputation by placing an order for the all-electric EQS luxury saloon.
With a range of up to 453 miles (WLTP) from its 107.8 kWh lithium-ion battery, the 333 hp EQS is the new flagship of the Mercedes-Benz battery electric vehicle (BEV) line-up. It is also the first Mercedes-Benz model to use the all-new modular platform architecture designed expressly for large luxury and executive-class electric vehicles.
The EQS showcases the innovative MBUX Hyperscreen with multiple displays that merge seamlessly under one piece of glass to create a curved screen over 141 centimetres wide. The MBUX Hyperscreen is available on AMG Line Premium models and above; it will cost £7,995.
EQS 450+ AMG Line models come as standard with 20-inch alloy wheels; AMG Line body styling elements in high-gloss black and chrome; 4.5-degree rear-axle steering; panoramic sunroof; full leather upholstery; heated seats front and rear; a flat-bottomed sports steering wheel in Nappa leather; 12.3-inch driver display; MBUX multimedia system with 12.8-inch OLED central display; Driving Assistance Package and MBUX augmented navigation.
All EQS models come with a three-year subscription to Mercedes me Charge, providing access to green charging from many public charging providers, with a single account. This also includes a one-year subscription to IONITY with free rapid charging.
