Mercedes-Benz
is a brand that has been synonymous with excellence and luxury for decades, and now they are looking to expand into the EV market. The brand's first fully-electric vehicle is the
Mercedes EQS

Electric performance of the Mercedes EQS

According to
Mercedes-Benz
, the Mercedes EQS offers power and range that can compete with the top models out there. It also has luxury features that drivers would expect from a Mercedes sedan.
The Mercedes EQS sports a 107.8-kWh battery that powers a 245-kWh motor. In terms of power, the Mercedes EQS produces 329 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque. With this motor, the EQS can get from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds. 
Range matters when shopping for an EV, and Mercedes does not disappoint with the maximum range in the new EQS. On a single charge, the Mercedes EQS can travel 350 miles. 
In terms of price, the EQS is a six-figure car, which should come as no surprise for a Mercedes-Benz. The base Mercedes EQS starts at $102,310, and for this luxury price, drivers get to experience luxury features.

Luxury features and safety technology in the Mercedes EQS

Signature luxury elements can be found throughout the Mercedes EQS, and the leather upholstery is just the beginning. The front seats are designed to be comfortable in all temperatures. They are heated and have ventilation for cooling—a feature standard on all Mercedes EQS models.
The climate control system of the EQS is designed to give drivers and passengers the freedom and opportunity to adjust the interior temperature as needed. This isn't a standard climate control system, either, as it does much more than heat and cool the sedan. The high-tech system monitors things like humidity in the air, and it can even filter out pollen and dust.
Technology in the Mercedes EQS is also used to make the car safer. EQS models come standard with features like active steering and brake assist, blind-spot assist, and lane change assist.  

Trim options make the EQS even more luxurious

Mercedes currently has three trim options for the EQS. The base option is, appropriately, called the Premium trim, and the trims above this are the Exclusive trim and Pinnacle trim.
The Exclusive Mercedes EQS costs $105,710 and it takes everything that makes the Premium trim great and boosts it. The front seats are still both heated and cooled, but they also feature massage settings and other adjustable back and shoulder support. Additionally, the climate system can now be adjusted for four zones in the car instead of two.
The highest trim, the Pinnacle, costs $108,510, and it features all of the benefits of the Exclusive model and more. In the Pinnacle EQS, the back seats also get heating and cooling. For drivers and passengers who want to charge their devices on the go, the Pinnacle features wireless charging.
