Next Tesla: Mercedes EQS showed a record power reserve

The Mercedes-Benz EQS electric car was able to travel as much as 679.4 km without recharging. This is one of the best indicators on the market and has surpassed the passport data. This is reported by the website Edmunds, which organized the Mercedes EQS test.

It should be noted that the official range of the Mercedes-Benz EQS according to the EPA cycle (it is considered the most realistic) is 563 km. That is, in real life, the electric car was able to drive 116 km more at once – the difference with the passport data is 20.6%.

It should be noted that electric vehicles are tested at Edmunds exactly according to the EPA method: 60% of the test takes place on city roads, and 40% on highways. The car continues to drive until the battery is completely discharged.

Mercedes-Benz EQS 450+ took part in the test. It is equipped with a 333-horsepower engine and a 107.8 kWh battery, as well as 255/45 R20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 tires with low rolling resistance.

The result of the Mercedes-Benz EQS was a record in the entire history of tests from Edmunds. Previously, the best achievement on the same route in Los Angeles was demonstrated by the Tesla Model 3 Long Range – it drove 555 km to discharge (this is slightly less than the passport 568 km). And the new Tesla Model S Plaid and Ford Mustang Mach-E California Route were able to cover 553 km on a single charge.

However, the most “long-range” Tesla Model S Long Range with a passport power reserve of 652 km has not yet been tested. Also to be tested is the new Lucid Air, capable of traveling 837 km without recharging. And the new Chinese crossover GAC Aion LX Plus has a power reserve of 1000 km.
