Mercedes has introduced its electric car EQS.
Daimler AG, the parent company of Mercedes Benz revealed the electric “sibling” of its flagship Mercedes-Benz S-Class luxury sedan, in order to compete with the EV market leader Tesla.
The new premium EV is called ‘EQS.’ It is the first car in the family of Mercedes-Benz that is built on a dedicated electric vehicle platform. It will go on sale in Europe and the United States in August, then in China in January.
According to the company, EQS is designed to be better than our customers expect.
The interior design of this car looks more like a space plane of the future than a car, while its dashboard is almost completely covered with screens.
A total of 3 screens are available on the 56-inch elbow glass surface, including a passenger screen that is not visible to the driver.
The company has not yet announced the price of the car, but it is estimated that it will cost at least a million dollars to buy it.
Originally, this car was introduced in comparison to Tesla, but the design of Mercedes is more unique.
The exterior design of the EQS is similar to that of the S-Class Mercedes, but also slightly different from the front.
It is the first electric car to be part of Mercedes’ new platform and features state-of-the-art batteries.
The battery in this electric vehicle provides 516 horsepower and 611 torque power while on full charge this vehicle will be able to travel up to 478 miles.
The car has several features for the safety and comfort of the passengers.
Notable among these features is the driver assist system which controls the speed and braking of the vehicle while also controlling other functions like switching lenses or keeping the vehicle in its lane.
It also has an augmented reality system that notifies the driver of the destination by displaying 3D graphics through a head-up display.
