  • How much more can it make when customers upgrade to the AMG Dynamic Plus package?

  • “The AMG EQS 53 4Matic+ is the first all-electric ambassador in the performance segment, made in Affalterbach. It is tailor-made for car enthusiasts who are looking for a combination of innovative electric mobility in a luxurious ambience, coupled with sportiness and agile driving dynamics. With our first all-electric AMG vehicle, we will undoubtedly appeal to and win over a new clientele for Mercedes-AMG. In addition, the EQS 53 is further proof that Mercedes-Benz is consistently driving electrification forward with all its brands as well. Further all-electric AMG models will follow in the not too distant future, also on our AMG.EA platform developed entirely in-house,” said Mercedes‑AMG GmbH Chairman of the Board of Management Philipp Schiemer.

    Powering the new EQS 53 4Matic+ is a performance-oriented drive concept with two motors, one at the front and one at the rear. Each of the motors features a fully-variable AMG Performance 4Matic+ all-wheel drive, which optimally transmits the drive power to the wheels in all driving conditions.

    The standard version of this powertrain setup puts out 658 horses and 950Nm of torque while those who opt to get theirs with the AMG Dynamic Plus package can bump up the power output to 761 horses and 1,0210Nm of almost instantaneous torque.

    “Also with electrification, we ensure that our models based on the EVA2 group platform will deliver on our AMG brand promise. Our customers can also look forward to a dynamic and emotional driving experience in this area. We ensure this with AMG-specific solutions, particularly when it comes to the drive system, suspension, brakes, and, above all, sound,” commented Mercedes‑AMG GmbH Chief Technical Officer Jochen Hermann.

    Prospective buyers can now order the new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ at prices starting at €152,546.10 from authorized Mercedes-Benz dealers.
