Insideevs: Mercedes Benz EQS 450+ Review…

The Mercedes Benz EQS 450+ is easily one of, if not the most luxurious, premium electric vehicles available today. When it comes to electric vehicles, the driving range, as well as the ability to recharge quickly, are two features that need to be considered when labeling a vehicle “premium”.

The rear-wheel-drive Mercedes EQS 450+ has a combined EPA range rating of 350 miles per charge, which is more than any EV available today except for the Tesla Model S, Tesla Model 3, and the Lucid Air. The EPA stopped publishing the highway range ratings for EVs recently, or we would have used that number for comparison.

However, we’ve been hearing reports from various sources that the EQS 450+ can easily outperform its EPA range rating, even when driven at highway speeds. Here at InsideEVs, we don’t just take the EPA range rating or test results from other sources. We put all the electric vehicles through our standardized 70-mph highway range test and recently, it was the EQS’s turn.

I forgot to mention, although it is rated for 350 miles range, the Insideevs testers squeezed 395 miles range out of the EQS 450+ and that’s after 20 minutes of slow creep in a traffic jam which took them way down from their 70 MPH test speed.
