The tests spotted camouflaged prototype electric full-size liftback Mercedes EQS. Presentation of the new product may take place either this year or next.
Immediately it should be mentioned that the ability to control all four wheels were for a long time. In almost all situations, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction to the front, at low speeds, to improve maneuverability when driving on narrow streets or when Parking. At higher speeds the rear wheels turn in the same direction as the front to improve stability of the vehicle.
The rear wheels will be sold and in electric sedan Mercedes EQS.
This possibility was noticed by the journalists who captured this heavily disguised prototype of the German news. When a test vehicle turns right, the rear wheels are slightly turned to the left. Given the huge wheel base of a novelty, we’re not too surprised that the engineers of the automaker are trying to improve low-speed maneuverability EQS, turning its rear wheels.
Will I still be offered the control function of the rear wheels as basic options, or will only be available for a fee, is still unknown. In the end, the upcoming EQS will be a flagship electric model Mercedes with a starting price, which is significantly higher compared to the regular S-Class.
We have a feeling that EQS will not be a sedan in the traditional sense of the word, because the prototype looks like a liftback/hatchback. Mercedes EQS may debut later this year or even in 2021. Also, there are rumors that a more powerful performance models from the sports division AMG will receive more than 600 horsepower capacity.
