India's first locally built luxury EV, Mercedes EQS 580 to debut on September 30

On September 30, Mercedes-Benz will begin selling the Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC, a locally built luxury electric vehicle (EV), at its Chakan facility, which is close to Pune. Mercedes AMG's EQS 53, which debuted at a price of 2.45 crore, was released just before the Mercedes EQS 580. (ex-showroom).

While the AMG EQS 53 enters the market through imports and boasts the power of AMG technology, the locally built EQS 580 4MATIC will be less expensive and have lower performance ratings while yet promising the same level of extravagant luxury as flagship Mercedes vehicles. The EQS 580, which is based on Mercedes' dedicated electric vehicle architecture (EVA), is externally and internally similar to its AMG twin but has some unique characteristics of its own. The face of the vehicle has a closed, blacked-out grille that immediately identifies it as an electric vehicle, and the angular LED headlamp units to add to its athletic appearance. The car also has 19-inch alloy wheels, flat door handles, and frameless doors as further characteristics.

Range of the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 battery:

In India, the EQS 580 would be available with the four-motor setup, which would have a motor on each axle. The Mercedes EV, which is powered by a 107.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, states that it can go more than 750 miles before needing to be recharged. This EV generates 523 horsepower and 856 pound-feet of torque, which are incredibly astounding numbers that may only be surpassed by the 649 horsepower and 950 pound-feet of the Mercedes AMG EQS 53.

Measurements of the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580: The EQS 580 shares the same exterior dimensions as the AMG EQS 53. This indicates that it is 5,223 mm long, 1,296 mm wide, and 1,515 mm tall. It features a 3,210 mm wheelbase and a 610-litre cargo capacity.

A key component of the company's effort toward electric mobility is the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580, which was unveiled to the public for the first time ever in 2021. Mercedes-Benz India moved quite quickly to not only bring the model here but also to take the risk and locally construct it, allowing it to avoid some taxes for a price that would have been otherwise higher.

Even though it was the first company in India to introduce a luxury battery-powered vehicle in the form of the EQC SUV, Mercedes currently offers two EV variants. Audi now has the largest selection of electric vehicles in the nation, however, competitors BMW, Jaguar, and Volvo also offer at least one electric vehicle apiece. Mercedes, however, has stated that it intends to introduce the EQB SUV here by the fourth quarter of 2022 in order to take the lead in terms of models offered.
