This serious performance EV sedan packs 649 horsepower, and up to 751 with the boost function.
It will be offered in two trims: Exclusive and Pinnacle.
The AMG EQS arrives in U.S. dealerships in late spring.
The new 2022 Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is set to take on all other elite electric super sedans when it arrives later this spring. And priced from $147,500, Mercedes-Benz is not shy about who they are aiming for.
The Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is a serious driving machine. It features an AMG Performance 4MATIC+ variable all-wheel-drive system, AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension with adaptive adjustable damping that also includes rear-axle steering (up to 9-degrees of a turn) as standard. The power figures are staggering as the sedan is privy to 649 horsepower under normal circumstances. This number rises to all of 751 horsepower under the boost function.
While there’s plenty of onboard technology as well, such as the MBUX Hyperscreen that include three displays merged into a single 56-inch curved glass surface, pricing has us thinking that Benz is going after Porsche.
The 2022 Porsche Taycan Turbo starts at $150,900 in the US. Although there are plenty of similarities between the two Germans, the American offering certainly has a few advantages. The Tesla Model S Plaid, the 1,020-horsepower version, is not only less expensive at $129,740, but it offers nearly 350 miles of range.
