Large electric sedan Mercedes-Benz EQS was cheaper than the gasoline S-Class

Published

Mercedes-Benz today announced the cost of its large EQS sedan, which is an electric version of the flagship S-Class. And, I must say, the price was somewhat unexpected, because the EQS turned out to be cheaper than the gasoline version.

The EQS will go on sale in the US this fall, and the basic version of the EQS 450+ is priced at $ 103,360. And that’s not including the $ 7,500 federal subsidy. The second option, EQS 580 4MATIC, is more expensive – $ 126,360. For comparison, the cost of a gasoline S-Class in the US starts at $ 112,150, and there are no subsidies.

The power of the single-engine version of the EQS (that is, the basic EQS ​​450+) is 329 hp, the power of the all-wheel drive version (EQS 580 4MATIC) is 516 hp. The claimed acceleration time to 100 km / h is about 4 s, the maximum speed is limited at around 210 km / h. The cars are equipped with traction batteries with a capacity of 90 and 107.7 kWh, in the second case, the declared mileage on one charge is 770 km (according to the WLTP cycle, in reality it will be less). In both cases, the proprietary multimedia system MBUX is provided, but the screen diagonal in the EQS 450+ is 12.8 inches, and in the EQS 580 4MATIC a 56-inch “hyperscreen” is installed.

The Japanese company Mitsuoka has introduced an updated retro crossover Buddy, which is an “aged” version of the popular Toyota RAV4 in the style of old American SUVs from the 70s.

According to Drom.ru, the changes include enlarged screens of the digital instrument panel and multimedia complex (the exact diagonals are not reported), as well as a full-time DVR, which will be installed from the factory.

Mitsuoka Buddy is offered in two versions to choose from. Buyers are available a pure gasoline version with a 2.0-liter engine and a hybrid with a 2.5-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor.

Production of the “aged” Toyota RAV4 began in June last year. The car differs from the Toyota crossover in its original body design. The front fenders, hood and bumper are made in the style of the Chevrolet K5 Blazer of the 1970-1980s. The headlights from the RAV4 were replaced with universal “rectangles”, the radiator grille is made in the form of a nickel-plated “grill”, and the original bumper with a chrome trim and vertical lights from Cadillac integrated through the adapter is installed at the back.

Tesla Semi production has finally begun almost 5 years

According to CEO Elon Musk’s announcement, Tesla has begun production of its Semi electric truck and plans to begin shipping it to Pepsi as early as December 1, 2022.

The soft drink company ordered 100 electric vehicles in December 2017, just a month after Tesla first unveiled its new creation to the world.

Tesla promises that the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 96 km/h mph in 20 seconds even when “fully loaded” and maintain “the same speed as on the highway, even on steep climbs.” It also promises that you can charge your battery up to 70% in just 30 minutes. The power reserve, depending on the version, will be from 480 to 800 km. In Musk’s own words, “driving a car is a lot of fun.”

Until 2022, there was little news about the car. In May, Tesla began accepting orders and taking a $20,000 deposit, and in August, Musk said deliveries of the 500-mile-range version of the truck would begin this year.

Tesla has pushed back the release dates of its vehicles many times. The Cybertruck pickup has been delayed several times, with Musk saying deliveries will now begin in 2023. The second-generation Tesla roadster that was announced alongside the Semi was originally expected in 2020 but has yet to be released.

Unfortunately, now we are also not talking about a full announcement, since most of the characteristics remain unknown. But this is due to the fact that the car will hit the market only in 2024, so some of the specifications are probably simply not yet approved.
