We also have an overview of the full specifications, an image gallery, detailed information about charging performance, and some online reviews. Our sections:

Performance

The Mercedes-EQ EQS 450+ delivers a solid performance with a maximum power of 265 kW (360 hp / 355 bhp) and a total torque of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft). It can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 5.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 210 km/h (131 mph), making it competitive within its class.

Battery, range, and charging

The high-capacity battery has a gross capacity of 120 kWh and a net usable capacity of 108,4 kWh, providing an 11,6 kWh buffer (9.7%) for battery protection. With a nominal voltage of 396 volts, the system is classified as a 400-volt battery system, aligning with industry standards. This Lithium-Ion battery utilizes NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) technology.

Under the WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure) standard, the vehicle’s range varies between 783 to 642 km (487-399 miles), depending on the specific configuration and options, such as wheel size. Larger wheels, for instance, can increase energy consumption and subsequently reduce the overall range. The vehicle’s energy consumption is rated at 13.8 kWh/100 km for the base model and 16.9 kWh/100 km for the top-tier model under the WLTP test cycle. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.

The vehicle supports fast DC charging with a maximum power of 210 kW. Charging from 0% to 100% takes approximately 82 minutes, while a more typical charging scenario from 10% to 80% takes 30 minutes with an average charging speed at 153 kW. Considering an additional 5 minutes for each charging stop due to driving interruptions, the optimal charging range is from 1% to 57%. This results in an effective charging speed, including time lost, of 142 kW, with each charging session taking about 26 minutes and 41 seconds.. This efficient charging capability makes the Mercedes-EQ EQS 450+ a convenient option for long-distance travel.

In a theoretical 1000 km challenge, starting with a full battery and maintaining a constant speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) under ideal conditions with an assumed consumption rate of 19.8 kWh/100 km, the trip would take approximately 8 hours and 59 minutes. This journey would require two charging stops from 1% to 43%, with a total charging time of 40 minutes.

Onboard charger

The onboard charger supports up to 22 kW for Level 1 and Level 2 AC charging. This allows you to fully charge the battery from 0 to 100% in approximately 4 hours and 55 minutes using a home charging setup.

Charge port

The location of the charge port is on the right rear side. This location makes it easy to use charge stations where you need to back up into the charger. Connector types vary by market: this model uses CCS Combo 1 in North America and CCS Combo 2 in Europe. For complete specifications for all markets, refer to the full specifications.

Drivetrain

Mercedes-EQ EQS 450+ has a rear-wheel drive system supported by one motor on the rear axle. The motor used are Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors.

Suspension

The suspension is fully adaptive on the front and rear axle, so height and damping can be adjusted manually and automatically. The minimum ground clearance is 82 mm, and the maximum is 127 mm.

Steering

Dynamic steering is a standard feature on the Mercedes-EQ EQS 450+. Dynamic steering varies the steering ratio as a function of driving speed. In addition, rear-wheel steering is available as a standard feature. Rear wheel steering reduces the turning circle when going slow.

Brakes

The rear and front brakes are cast-iron discs. The front discs are 415mm, and the rear discs are 378mm.

Regenerative braking

The regenerative braking system in this model offers several modes to enhance efficiency and driving experience. The most efficient option is the Automatic Regeneration Mode, where the vehicle coasts when possible and employs regenerative braking to reduce speed as needed.

Manual regeneration is another mode, where regenerative braking is controlled by pressing the brake pedal. The brake system blends in physical brakes only when necessary.

Another option is the Regen on Accelerator Pedal mode where regenerative braking is activated when the driver eases off the accelerator pedal. This system allows the vehicle to slow down and recover energy without the driver needing to press the brake pedal, a feature often referred to as one-pedal driving. You can choose between two stopping modes for one-pedal driving. Hold mode brings the vehicle to a complete stop using friction brakes, and Roll mode allows the vehicle to roll until it stops naturally.

The maximum regenerative power is 300 kW.

Exterior
