2023 EQS Sedan Performance

In place of silky six- and eight-cylinder engines, the EQS has electric motors - one in the case of the EQS 450+ and two for the 450 4Matic and 580 4Matic, with the latter pair utilizing all-wheel drive instead of rear-wheel drive as a result. Outputs also vary for the three, and so too do acceleration times, with 0-60 mph of 5.9, 5.3, and 4.1 seconds on each model, respectively. However, all variants of the EQS electric sedan have a top speed of 130 mph. Those figures are secondary to the experience, which is one of ample force whenever you need it. Sadly, the rest of the experience isn't quite up to snuff, as the brakes and suspension are a little lacking.

Engine and Transmission

The EQS 450+ Sedan features a single electric motor mounted to the rear axle. In this configuration, the EQS offers 329 hp and 417 lb-ft of torque. The 450 4Matic adds an extra motor for the front axle, bagging you all-wheel traction and heightened outputs of 355 hp and 590 lb-ft, while the EQS 580 4Matic simply dials up the power on a similar layout to 516 hp and 631 lb-ft. All three have more than enough power for all driving situations, with plenty of acceleration from a dig, good overtaking and cruising ability, and ample throttle response.

2023 EQS Sedan Gas Mileage

According to EPA estimates, the EQS450+ will manage a figure of 97/97/97 MPGe city/highway/combined, with a total range of 350 miles from its 107.8 kWh lithium-ion battery. The addition of a second motor or the EQS 450 4Matic curiously sees an improvement in EPA claims, with MPGe estimates of 101/105/103 but a range of only 340 miles from the same battery. The EQS 580 4Matic also has a range of 340 miles but uses a claimed 92/99/95 MPGe.

Charging takes a little more than 11 hours on a 240-volt household wallbox, but with DC fast charging functionality, the EQS can be charged from 10-80% in 31 mins.

How many miles can the Mercedes EQS Sedan travel on a full charge?

The EQS 450+ single-motor electric sedan has the best range estimate of 350 miles, but the EPA indicates the dual-motor variants only lose 10 miles of range and can still travel 340 miles on a full charge.

How long does the EQS Sedan take to charge?

The EQS can charge from 10 to 100 percent in around 11 hours when using a 240-volt charger and can go from 10% to 80% in under 35 minutes when using a DC fast charger.
