Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 Electric Sedan Launched in India, Achieves EV Range of 857 Km

Mercedes-Benz has launched its latest electric car, the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 in India, priced at Rs 1.55 crore (ex-showroom). With a claimed range of 857 km per charge, the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 has the highest range of any electric car in India. The model is placed below the recently launched Mercedes-AMG EQS 53S which is a fully imported model which is a sportier offering.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 is priced at Rs 90 lakh less than the AMG model. It also undercuts the current combustion engine-powered flagship sedan from Mercedes-Benz, the S-Class by Rs 5 lakh (ex-showroom). Interestingly, India is the only country that assembles the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 apart from its hometown factory in Germany.

The reason for this huge range is the fact that the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 comes with a 107.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and is also, according to the company, the most aerodynamic car in the world.

Power is sent to electric motors, one location on each axle. The EQS 580 has a total power output of 523 horsepower and a massive 855 Nm of torque, which enables it to go from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 210 km/h. Additionally, the car also supports charging speeds of up to 200 kW, if you can find a charger with that output, ie.

As for the features, the highlight should be the ‘Hyperscreen’ that comes with it.
