Mercedes-AMG EQS53 AMG+ unveiled to compete with Tesla Model S

Mercedes-Benz produces high-powered vehicles under its Mercedes-AMG subsidiary. The subsidiary produced some of the most elite performance vehicles, ranging from four-cylinder engines to ultra-luxurious yet beastly V-12 engines. The company also made an extremely efficient diesel powertrain. Now the Mercedes-AMG has finally spread its wings in the electric age. Showcasing one of its derivatives under Mercedes-Benz’s EQS electric flagship, the company showcased its first-ever electric vehicle under AMG, the Mercedes-AMG EQS53 AMG+ at the IAA Munich Motor Show.

Even though the AMG EQS falls under the same umbrella as other EVs, the EQS53 AMG+ has a few distinctive tweaks that separate it from other members of its family. The car comes with two AMG-specific electric motors installed on each axle of the vehicle. The car runs with a thrust of 649 BHP, with the engine producing a torque of 950 Nm. Torque climbs up to 1020 Nm in “Race Start” mode. The company claims the car can go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds, with its electronically controlled top speed of 250 km/h.

Talking about the range of the car, the Mercedes-AMG EQS53 AMG+ has a 107.8 kWh lithium-ion battery and can run the vehicle for 586 kilometers on a full charge. Like its fossil-fueled siblings, the electric beast comes with AMG Ride Control+ adaptive air suspensions and a high-performance AMG braking system, reports Team-BHP. Additionally, the company improved the cooling system and revamped the driving modes.

The exteriors of the car remain the same as the gasoline-powered AMG except for some subtle tweaks to the looks. The grille with chrome elements, the larger spoiler and the 21-inch AMG alloy wheels are elements that differ.

Also watch:

There are several software additions inside the car that encourage the driver inside the driver, such as the Track Pace function and the “Race-Start” mode, which adds a variety of visual and sound effects. The interior also features a huge “Hyper Screen” that displays various car-related content.
