Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic+: the first
Mercedes-AMG’s new luxury high-performance sedan will be the flagship model of these two models. Equalizer Scope and Mercedes-Benz’s customized electric vehicle lineup. Followed by a series of AMG EVs, including popular versions of other EQ models built on the EVA2 platform, and dedicated AMG models using the AMG.EA architecture.
EQS 53 incorporates a large number of technical changes of the conventional electric luxury car, including AMG-specific electric performance motors mounted on each axle. The motor has new windings, stronger currents, and a new drive through the inverter, allowing higher rotation speeds within the unit.
These upgrades enable AMG to increase the power and torque of permanent magnet synchronous motors. The standard EQS 53 model will provide 649 horsepower, while the model equipped with the Dynamic Plus kit will have a Race Start mode, which increases the output to 751 horsepower. In this mode, EQS 53 can achieve a speed of 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds-0.4 seconds faster than standard time. The top speed limit for the standard model is 220 km/h, and the top speed limit for the Dynamic Plus model is 250 km/h.
Power is stored in a 107.8kWh lithium-ion battery with a 400V architecture. The battery uses customized AMG wiring to improve performance and provides a range of 326 to 360 kilometers, depending on specifications. The battery management system is customized for EQS 53, which can achieve higher performance in sports and sports + driving modes. When driving, you can use the switch on the steering wheel to perform three-level energy recovery. The battery can be charged up to 200kW on a fast charger.
Like the conventional EQS, the suspension of the new model uses a multi-link front and rear axle, although AMG said it has re-developed any components that “affect driving dynamics”, including the rear bridge and the subframe and motor installation.
The car is equipped with AMG’s Ride Control+ air suspension, which combines electronically controlled active shock absorbers and standard rear axle steering system. Like the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door coupe, the air suspension is equipped with two pressure relief valves. AMG claims that the damping force can be adjusted “more precisely” according to different driving conditions. The suspension system can also analyze sensor data to change the damping force.
The model has a series of AMG driving modes that can adjust the suspension, handling, power transmission and battery management, and change the synthesized sound to suit. There are 21-inch or 22-inch wheels to choose from, and high-performance AMG brakes are standard. Larger ceramic brakes are optional. The new AMG mode is available as part of the standard EQS sound experience system and includes performance settings for Dynamic Plus models, which can add “event sounds” to all vehicle functions.
EQS 53 uses many custom AMG styling elements, many of which reflect the classic design features of the tuning arm. These include a custom black panel front grille with “hot stamped” chrome-plated vertical pillars, as well as a redesigned front bumper and apron. Although the new machine matches the 0.23Cd of the conventional EQS, AMG stated that it has conducted wind tunnel tests to optimize airflow, so the rear diffuser, side air intakes and larger rear spoiler have been redesigned.
