Mercedes-Benz’s 2024 EQS e-SUV boasts more EPA range & higher efficiency

The all-electric 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV has made notable strides in terms of range as well as efficiency, reflecting significant advancements over the previous model year e-SUV. While offering a compelling blend of luxury and sustainability, the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz EQS e-SUV also promises substantially more EPA range and slightly higher efficiency than the 2023 EQS e-SUV.

The latest version of the EQS e-SUV comes equipped with a hefty 118-kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery pack, which reflects a notable enhancement from the previous e-SUV’s 108.4 kWh battery. In other words, the new e-SUV has 10 kWh or 9 per cent greater battery capacity, in addition to other enhancements.

Obviously, the biggest enhancement in the EV is in the form of range. The EPA-estimated Combined range of the entry-level EQS 450+ e-SUV, which has rear-wheel drive (RWD) system, is now 339 miles on a single charge. The all-wheel drive (AWD) versions of the EV can now cover distances of up to 330 miles between two charges, 45 miles or almost 16 per cent more than the previous versions. The top-of-the-line variant, the 2024 Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 4Matic e-SUV, delivers a range of up to 321 miles.

When it comes to energy consumption stats for the 2024 Mercedes EQS SUV, they are higher than the previous model. The EQS 450+ e-SUV with 21-inch wheels has an estimated energy consumption rating of 86 MPGe or around 392 Wh per mile (approx. 2.6 miles/kWh). For the regular AWD versions (4Matic), this stat falls to 83 MPGe (approx. 2.5 miles/kWh).

The top-of-the-line e-SUV, the 2024 Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 4Matic, has the lowest energy consumption rating of 81 MPGe (approx. 2.4 miles/kWh).

In terms of pricing, the new variants of the e-SUV are obviously quite expensive. The 2024 Mercedes EQS 450+ e-SUV with 21-inch wheels cost $104,400. However, with the destination charge of $1,150 and the vehicle’s ineligibility for the federal tax credit of $7,500, the effective price of the EV surges to $105,550. Similarly, the effective prices of the 2024 Mercedes EQS 450 4Matic e-SUV is $108,550, while the EQS 580 4Matic e-SUV and the Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 4M e-SUV cost $128,500 and $181,050, respectively.

The 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQS e-SUV exemplifies the German luxury automaker’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of EV technology. With substantial advancements over its predecessor, the new Mercedes-Benz EQS e-SUV sets new benchmark for sustainable driving without making any compromise on luxury and performance.
