A look at the bunch of Mercedes’ new electric cars




Electric G-class, for sure, became the highlight of a recent Mercedes’ event. And, what’s actually impressing, is that the production EQG is not a complete concept car, but is a prototype which is quite close to production.

Though, Mercedes is yet silent about the EQG technical specs. We know that it is going to have four electric motors, and Mercedes is making sure EQG to be as mighty during off-road as its gas-guzzling brother. By the way, EQG will share its platform with G-class, including the vehicle’s frame and suspension. Mercedes only remastered the existing transmission to fit electric drivetrain.



After the G-class, Mercedes also thought of the all-electric successor of a E-class. EQE is the one to take place under the EQS in Mercedes’ hierarchy.

EQE shares the platform with EQS, and this may be the reason why both sedans look almost the same (despite the 20 cm difference in length). During the recent event Mercedes only unveiled the RWD version - EQE 350 with 292 hp and 530 Nm electric motor. The car would accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 sec, reaching the top speed of 209 km/h. EQE 350 is equipped with 90.6 kWh battery pack, allowing to travel up to 660 km on a single charge.

However, Mercedes claims the all-wheel drive EQE to follow up soon.



The sporty and aggressive version of a luxurious EQS is going to arrive to dealerships in early 2022. The AMG-version will be based on EQS 580 4Matic version. The exterior and interior won’t tell that the car was highly modified, although some technical specs exceed the original one.

AMG EQS 53 is equipped with 649 hp and 949 Nm drivetrain (vs 524 hp and 855 Nm of EQS 580). Also, the driver may increase the power up to 751 hp and 1020 Nm for a limited period of time. AMG EQS 53 uses the original EQS 580 battery pack.
