MERCEDES EQS TO JOIN THE EV HIRE FLEET?
Will the Mercedes EQS join the EVHire fleet?
Mercedes-Benz has confirmed plans to release another six zero-emissions models in the luxury and executive segment, including the astonishingly gorgeous, EQS. Anytime we hear news like this, EVHire is all ears.
The Mercedes EQS is set to rival the Porsche Taycan Turbo S hire. Inspired by the Vision EQS concept, the Mercedes-Benz EQS will have 435 miles of electric range, with torque to match that of the Mercedes-Benz S 560 Grand Edition Coupe.
As with all Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the EQS will have a raft of super slick technologies, including but not limited to fancy holographic headlights and the MBUX cabin display and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Like the Porsche, the ultra-fast charging IONITY network is going to play a key role.
Using the South African heat and the Northern Swedish cold, the EQS is undergoing final tests before hitting Factory 56, in Sindelfingen. The German brand is keen to keep the credentials for this motor completely net-zero, building it in the infamous CO2-neutral factory.
In fact, the commitment to its "Ambition 2039" initiative—the objective being to offer a CO2-neutral new car fleet less than 20 years from now—the brand has ensured the flexible architecture of the all-electric EQS will enable further models, such as SUVs, people carriers and more compact offerings, including the EQA (think A-Class), production of which will start by the end of the year.
We’re set to learn and see more of the EQS in April and will be considering putting the money down for one after the summer.
What do you think? Is the EQS smart enough to be part of our fleet?
