Mercedes-AMG EQS is built on the EVA2 platform and features fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive as standard. Electric supercars ranging around 3 seconds of 0-60mph time or even less like Tesla Model S Plaid are not hard to find today, but what separates the Mercedes-AMG EQS is the dramatic sound inside-out which can be altered between two modes: Authentic and Performance. 

The driver gets to personalize the ride using five AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes - "Slippery", "Comfort", "Sport", "Sport+" and "Individual". Some other features like AMG Ride Control+suspension system, rear-axle steering, and high-performance compound brake system, and a drag-coefficient from 0.23 account for splendid performance and handling cues. Features like optional 'Track pace' and 'Race start' offer racetrack-oriented performance.

Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ Battery, Charging and Electric range

A surprising aspect of the Mercedes AMG EQS53 4Matic+ turned out to be the electric range of 326-360 miles.
