2023 Mercedes-AMG EQS53 V297 on sale in UK
Mercedes-AMG has released its first electric performance vehicle, the EQS53 4Matic+. Starting at £154,000 OTR in the UK, the 4WD, electric super saloon is available in two trim lines: Night Edition and Touring. Night Edition features gloss black trim and chunky black 21-inch AMG alloys covering yellow brake calipers. Touring spec projects a more mature image, with smoother bi-colour 22-inch wheels and silver brake calipers, complemented with chrome trim.
Whilst their standard outputs are the same at 649bhp and 701lb ft of torque, the quoted range of the Touring model on a single charge is slightly less (357 miles versus 377 miles). The Night Edition’s optional AMG Performance Package (£8,995) unlocks 751bhp and 752lb ft torque, reducing the 0-62mph time from 3.8 seconds to 3.4 seconds, while increasing the top speed from 137mph to 155mph. Also part of the Performance Package are a ceramic composite braking system, a launch control function, a special sound experience with Balanced, Sport and Power modes, plus an AMG Track Pace app and carbon fibre trim. All models feature the Hyperscreen Package including enormous dashboard screens plus an augmented reality head-up display as standard.
