The new electric AMG EQS has sound!
With its 2022 AMG EQS, Mercedes-Benz just unveiled the brand’s new flagship. And, while it is the most powerful and quickest version of the 2022 EQS, it will also come with a sound! When Mercedes unveiled the EQS, the company promised the AMG model would close to 630 hp. Surprise, it develops 649 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque! Add to that a boost function that increases output to 751 hp and 751 lb-ft of torque in the Race Start mode offered by AMG’s Dynamic Plus package. All this power comes from two electric motors, one on each axle, making the AMG EQS a standard all-wheel drive vehicle. With the boost function in Race Start mode, the EQS can do 0-96 kph in 3.4 seconds. According to Mercedes-Benz, top speed should be 250 kph. Yet, AMGs are known for their great exhaust sound. So, how did the manufacturer take care of this problem? By using loudspeakers and subwoofers, the EQS produces sound both inside and out of the car in two modes, «authentic» and «performance. » The car should be available next spring.
