Affalterbach.  With the new EQS 53 4MATIC+ (combined WLTP power consumption: 23.4-21.1 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined, WLTP: 0 g/km; electric range, WLTP: 529-586 km)[1] Mercedes-AMG is embarking on the all-electric future of Driving Performance. The first battery-electric AMG production model is based on the Mercedes-EQ architecture for luxury and executive-class vehicles. It thus fits seamlessly into the group-wide electric strategy. The luxury saloon with an output of up to 560 kW has been newly developed or refined in Affalterbach in all performance-related areas. It impresses with brand-specific features wherever the customer can experience them directly: from the technology to the exterior/interior design and the emotive vehicle sound.

"The AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is the first all-electric ambassador in the performance segment, made in Affalterbach. It is tailor-made for car enthusiasts who are looking for a combination of innovative electric mobility in a luxurious ambience, coupled with sportiness and agile driving dynamics. With our first all-electric AMG vehicle, we will undoubtedly appeal to and win over a new clientele for Mercedes-AMG. In addition, the EQS 53 is further proof that Mercedes-Benz is consistently driving electrification forward with all its brands as well. Further all-electric AMG models will follow in the not too distant future, also on our AMG.EA platform developed entirely in-house," says Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes‑AMG GmbH.

"Also with electrification, we ensure that our models based on the EVA2 group platform will deliver on our AMG brand promise. Our customers can also look forward to a dynamic and emotional driving experience in this area. We ensure this with AMG-specific solutions, particularly when it comes to the drive system, suspension, brakes and, above all, sound," says Jochen Hermann, Chief Technical Officer of Mercedes‑AMG GmbH.

At the heart of the new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is its performance-oriented drive concept with two motors. The powerful electric powertrain with one motor each at the front and rear axles has fully-variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive, which optimally transmits the drive power to the asphalt in all driving conditions. The basic version achieves a maximum total output of 484 kW (658 hp), with a maximum motor torque of 950 Nm. With the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package, which is available as an option, the maximum output increases to up to 560 kW (761 hp) in RACE START mode with boost function. The maximum motor torque is then up to 1020 Nm.

In this case the new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds with a battery charge level of at least 75 percent. The top speed is limited to 250 km/h with the optional AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package. In the base version the AMG EQS accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds (minimum 30 percent battery charge). Its maximum speed is limited to 220 km/.

AMG SOUND EXPERIENCE: emotional sound spectrum for a unique driving experience

Mercedes-AMG models have always stood for emotionality. The vehicle sound has always been an important part of the typical AMG driving experience. This will continue to be the case in the future. The EQS 53 4MATIC+ brings a new, powerfully sonorous sound to electric driving. Its sound system uses special speakers, a bass actuator and a sound generator to create a special sound experience in two versions: "Authentic" or, as an option, "Performance". This exclusive AMG SOUND EXPERIENCE is generated inside and out with a tonality and intensity to match the current driving status, the selected driving mode or the driver's wishes.

AMG-specific electric motors for perfectly balanced Driving Performance

The AMG-specific electric motors at the front and rear axles are permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM). The decided emphasis on performance is already evident in the output and torque values. In addition, the Mercedes-AMG electric motors are characterised by an optimum balance of enhanced power, efficiency and noise comfort. Among other things, this is ensured by new windings, stronger currents and new actuation via inverters with specially developed software. This allows higher rotational speeds and thus more power, setting standards especially in acceleration and top speed.

The electric motor at the rear axle of the EQS 53 4MATIC+ is particularly powerful. A major reason for this is the six-phase design based on two windings with three phases each. The stators with move-in winding ensure a particularly powerful magnetic field.

Added to this is the highly resilient thermal concept, which allows repeated acceleration manoeuvres with consistently high performance. The centrepiece of the sophisticated design is the so-called water lance in the shaft of the rotor, which cools it. Other AMG-specific cooling elements in the cooling circuit are special ribs on the stator and the needle-shaped pin-fin structure on the inverter, which is made of high-performance ceramics. In addition, there is the additional transmission oil cooler which also increases efficiency during cold driving, as it warms the transmission oil as needed.

Intelligent recuperation for efficient energy recovery

The new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ sets standards not only with its highly dynamic power delivery when accelerating, but also with efficient energy recuperation when braking. The recuperation output is up to 300 kW[2].

The driver can adjust the level of recuperation in three stages via switches on the steering wheel, and receive situation-related support from the ECO Assistant. Combined braking can take place until standstill. With the help of the optional DRIVE PILOT, deceleration is automatic in response to detected vehicles ahead until they come to a standstill, for example at traffic lights.

New battery generation with a capacity of 107.8 kWh

The new Mercedes-AMG 53 4MATIC+ is equipped with a powerful 400 volt battery manufactured using the latest lithium-ion technology. A major advance in sustainability has been achieved in the cell chemistry: The cobalt content is reduced to ten percent, the optimised active material consists of nickel, cobalt and manganese in a ratio of 8:1:1.

The high-voltage battery has a usable energy content of 107.8 kWh. One special technical feature is the AMG-specific wiring, which is adapted to the high performance capacity. The battery management system is also configured specifically for AMG. In the Sport and Sport+ driving modes the focus is on performance, in Comfort mode on operating range. The new generation of batteries is characterised by a significantly higher energy density compared to previous developments. It also has a higher charging capacity. Another new feature is the possibility to install updates for the battery management system over the air.

Shorter charging times thanks to intelligent thermal management

Another advantage of the new battery generation is the significantly shorter charging times. As with the sister model from Mercedes-EQ, the battery can be charged with up to 200 kW at quick-charging stations with direct current. In this case, power for up to another 300 kilometres (WLTP) can be "topped up" after just over 19 minutes[3]. Thanks to the onboard charger, the electrified AMG can be conveniently charged at home or at public charging stations with up to 22 kW (optional) of alternating current. In Japan, bidirectional charging will also be possible, i.e. charging in both directions. In addition, there are intelligent charging programmes that can be activated automatically depending on the location. Functions such as battery-friendly charging make charging even more efficient.

The efficient thermal management also plays a part in shortening charging times. If the intelligent navigation with Electric Intelligence is activated, the battery is preheated or cooled as needed while driving, so as to reach the optimum temperature for fast charging at the charging point. The desired temperature range of the battery is achieved with the aid of the cooling circuit and a PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) booster heater integrated into it.

The battery design aims to ensure the optimum battery operating temperature under all operating conditions. The aluminium extrusions of the battery frame have defined cavities through which the coolant flows. All in all, the intelligent temperature and charging management ensures that high charging currents can be maintained for a long time.

The battery also stands out for its durability. The ECO Charging function makes a significant contribution to this: the intelligent control reduces the battery load during charging, and thus slows down the natural ageing process of the battery. Customers can also benefit from "charge interruption" function: the charging process can be paused at freely selectable times so as to use cheaper off-peak electricity at a later time, for example. The battery certificate stands for the long service life of the high-voltage batteries. It is valid up to a term of ten years or up to 250,000 kilometres.

Fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive

The power of the battery-powered motors is brought to the road by the standard AMG Performance 4MATIC+ fully variable all-wheel drive system. The system continuously distributes the drive torques between the front and rear axles, depending on the driving situation: compared to a mechanical all-wheel drive system, the electro-specific system ensures a significantly faster response. The torque is checked 160 times per second and adjusted if necessary. The torque distribution depends on the selected driving mode: in "Comfort" mode the focus is on maximum efficiency, while in "Sport" and "Sport+" the torque is more rear-biased in the interests of greater lateral dynamics.

Tyres developed specifically for the higher performance level

The high driving-dynamics potential and the performance-oriented character of the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is also taken into account by the tyres developed together with MICHELIN. In order to do this the teams of developers at Mercedes-AMG and the French tyre manufacturer tailored the MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV specially designed for sports cars with electric drive to the requirements of the first all-electric AMG series model in a targeted manner. The profile and the rubber mix are geared to the high torque and the powerful acceleration forces and ensure a long life. The tyre received top marks and the coveted A-Label for its low rolling resistance (important for a long range) and the very good wet adhesion properties. Thought has also been given to comfort: a polyurethane foam which is integrated into the tyres considerably reduces driving noise.

AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension with adaptive adjustable damping

Like the EQS from Mercedes-EQ, the suspension of the new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ features a four-link axle at the front and a multi-link axle at the rear. AMG engineers have specifically improved the components and configured them to meet the special requirements of AMG customers. This applies to ride comfort as well as driving dynamics. The AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension is an air suspension system combined with adaptive, electronically controlled adjustable damping together with rear-axle steering as standard.

The suspension components that have an influence on the driving dynamics are new and AMG-specific. This applies to the rear axle beam, for example, which the engineers in Affalterbach have completely redeveloped. The subframe and motor mountings are also completely new developments, and exclusive to the AMG models. This also applies e.g. to the revised transverse stabilisers, as well as the wheel carriers and control arms, which are derived from other AMG Performance models.

As in the AMG GT 4-Door Coupé, the standard air suspension of the EQS 53 4MATIC+ uses two pressure relief valves. These continuously variable control valves located outside the damper allow the damping force to be adjusted even more precisely to different driving conditions and driving modes: a valve controls the rebound damping, i.e. the force generated when the wheel rebounds.  The other controls the compression damping when the wheel compresses. The rebound and compression stages are controlled independently of each other. This technology makes it possible to increase comfort on the one hand, but also to make the driving dynamics even sportier on the other hand.

The suspension control unit analyses data - including data from the acceleration and wheel path sensors - to adjust the damping force for each wheel in a few milliseconds to suit the situation. The AMG developers were able to significantly increase the spread between sportiness and comfort. Among other things, by widening the spread between minimum and maximum damping force characteristics, as well as even greater flexibility in characteristic mapping. By using the two adjustment valves, the damper is able to provide damping force adjustment across the full range of wheel vibrations. Thanks to the special design of the valves, the damper reacts quickly and sensitively to changing road surfaces and driving conditions.

Rear-axle steering as standard

The Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is equipped with rear-axle steering as standard. The steering angle of up to 9 degrees greatly enhances the agile handling of the large saloon. The turning circle is 11.5 metres – this is compact-class level.

The interaction between front-axle and rear-axle steering is designed to achieve agile responses with little steering effort when driving in town or on country roads. At speeds below 60 km/h, the rear wheels steer in the opposite direction to the front wheels. This makes the AMG EQS highly manoeuvrable, light-footed and nimble. The effect is particularly positive when turning off, changing direction quickly and manoeuvring slowly.

From a speed of more than 60 km/h, the rear wheels steer in the same direction as the front wheels. The resulting virtually extended wheelbase offers increased handling stability and driving safety at high speeds, and during fast lane changes or sudden evasive manoeuvres.

For an individual driving experience: AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes

The driving characteristics of the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ can be altered by the driver at the touch of a button, to suit the situation or personal preferences. This is made possible by the five AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes "Slippery", "Comfort", "Sport", "Sport+" and "Individual". The driving modes cover a wide spectrum, from high comfort to pronounced sportiness. Important parameters such as drive and performance characteristics, suspension settings, steering, AMG Dynamics and AMG SOUND EXPERIENCE are modified to suit the selected driving mode. The maximum drive power can be called up in the Sport+ driving mode (or with kick-down).

The driver can also pre-select the basic suspension setup via the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes: at the touch of a button, the driving behaviour varies from maximum dynamics in "Sport+" mode to smooth gliding in the "Comfort" setting, for example. In addition, the tuning can be adjusted in three stages independently of the driving modes via a dedicated button.

Depending on the driving mode, the central drive control unit automatically activates different de-rating and cooling strategies: in "Sport" and "Sport+", the cooling system is activated sooner and the cooling capacity is increased to maintain delivered power for longer. The driver has the option of even more driving pleasure - for example on enclosed circuits - by using the ESP OFF function.

AMG high-performance composite braking system

The Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is not only a top performer when it comes to driving dynamics, but also in handling safety. This is amply demonstrated by the AMG high-performance composite brake system with six-piston brake callipers and brake discs measuring 415x33 millimetres at the front, and single-piston brake callipers and brake discs measuring 378x22 millimetres at the rear. The optional AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system uses even larger brake discs measuring 440x40 millimetres at the front.  Another high-tech feature is the additional i-Booster function. This ensures that the braking system combines electric recuperation with the hydraulic brake in a highly efficient manner. For that really authentic driving experience, the i-Booster is specially tuned to the typical AMG pedal feel and the larger AMG braking system.

AMG SOUND EXPERIENCE: unique sound experience with a wide bandwidth

With the AMG SOUND EXPERIENCE, the performance and sports car brand is giving a new voice to electric mobility - a soundtrack that emotionally enhances the dynamic driving experience. Like the driving modes, the acoustic composition has a wide bandwidth: in the standard basic version "Authentic", the customer can regulate the powerful, sonorous sound and its intensity depending on the driving status and the selected driving mode. The AMG-typical driving sounds are generated with the help of additional hardware. This includes special speakers, a bass actuator and a sound generator.

Another option for even more individuality: Using the AMG steering wheel buttons or the central display, the driver can select the sound characteristics "Balanced", "Sport" and "Powerful" in any driving mode. During RACE START, the vehicle produces a unique sound to match the dynamic acceleration.

The AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package also includes the AMG SOUND EXPERIENCE "Performance", which creates an even more emotional soundscape. In addition to the driving sounds, it also includes most of the so-called event sounds - suitable sounds for all vehicle functions that emit a sound. This includes unlocking and locking the vehicle, as well as starting and stopping the drive system. The programme even simulates the click of the indicators, because many drivers are unwilling to do without the familiar sound. A brand new feature is the AMG-specific Event sound, which is heard when the driver enters the vehicle. The event sounds can be deactivated at any time via the multimedia system settings - separately for the exterior and interior.

Exterior design with characteristic AMG features

With its one-bow lines and cab-forward design with hatchback, the AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is clearly distinguishable from vehicles with combustion engines at first glance. The design philosophy is reflected in generously modelled surfaces, reduced joints and seamless transitions. The exterior design also picks up on characteristic AMG features and transfers them into the all-electric age. The results include an unmistakable, brand-typical appearance paired with maximum aerodynamic efficiency. The front view with DIGITAL LIGHT headlamps as standard is characterised by the AMG-specific black panel grille with hot-stamped vertical struts in chrome, integrated Mercedes star and "AMG" lettering. The distinctive design idiom continues in the front bumper, which is painted in the vehicle colour. This is contrasted by the front apron in the typical AMG A-wing design, which is painted in high-gloss black and features chrome trim.

Maximum aerodynamic efficiency with a Cd value from 0.23

The EQS 53 4MATIC+ achieves a very good wind resistance value from 0.23. finishing aerodynamic touch ensures maximum efficiency, especially during dynamic driving at a high speed. To achieve this, AMG's aero-specialists carried out a large number of wind tunnel and flow tests and optimised both the basic shape and certain design features. These include:

  • Front splitter in high-gloss black with chrome trim and also flics and fins on the air intakes, with AIR CURTAINS on the left and right in high-gloss black with chrome trim
  • AMG side sill panels in high-gloss black
  • Rear apron in the body colour with aerodynamically optimised diffuser with six longitudinal fins
  • Larger rear spoiler (compared to AMG Line), to improve driving dynamics: Rear lift is reduced without increasing drag
  • 21- or 22-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in Aero or Heritage design, all aerodynamically optimised

The side air intakes contribute to the vehicle's efficiency: the air curtain effect concentrates the airflow and sends it ahead of the front wheels at high speed. In this way the front wheels are aerodynamically shielded, which reduces air resistance and thus has a positive effect on operating range.

Interior design with a particularly sporty touch

The interior is also dominated by style-defining AMG features. Here the EQS 53 4MATIC+ offers a sporty ambience, thanks to AMG seats with individual graphics and special seat covers in ARTICO man-made leather with MICROCUT microfibre and red contrasting topstitching. Alternatively, seat upholstery in nappa leather is optionally available, also with AMG-specific seat graphics.

In addition, there are numerous other features that underline the distinctive style of the interior:

  • Instrument panel and beltlines in space grey ARTICO man-made leather with NEOTEX grain and red topstitching
  • Door centre panels and also transition from centre console to dashboard in black MICROCUT microfibre with red topstitching
  • AMG performance steering wheel in nappa leather, with flattened lower section, perforated in the grip area with silver-coloured aluminium paddles for setting various recuperation levels, in addition to standard AMG steering wheel buttons
  • AMG sports pedals
  • AMG floor mats and door sill trims with "AMG" lettering (illuminated with interchangeable cover)

Hyperscreen with AMG-specific functions and displays for the MBUX infotainment system

The Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is equipped with the innovative MBUX Hyperscreen as standard. This large, curved screen unit extends from A-pillar to A-pillar. Three screens sit under a glass cover and appear to merge into one. With adaptive software, MBUX adapts completely to its user and offers personalised suggestions for numerous infotainment, comfort and vehicle functions. With the so-called zero layer, the most important applications are always displayed situationally and contextually on the top level in the field of vision. In Europe and China, dynamic content is also permitted on the passenger display while driving. Unrestricted viewing of films, text messages or presentations, pus internet surfing, are therefore possible. This is made possible by the so-called "blanking function", which prevents the driver from seeing the content.

Compared to its sister models from Mercedes-EQ, MBUX in the EQS 53 4MATIC+ offers a range of additional functions that emphasise the high-performance character of the sporty top model. This is particularly true of the distinctive displays in the instrument cluster, as well as the multimedia display and the head-up display. Quick access to the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes is provided by the corresponding direct-entry button in the centre console.

AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package with dynamic driving extras

The AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package, available as an option, combines dynamic driving extras - including the powerful boost for RACE START and the increase in maximum speed to 250 km/h - with the emotional AMG sound experience "Performance". The latter provides a distinctive sound experience in the three selectable levels "Balanced", "Sport" and "Powerful". The intensity of the acoustic setup depends on the current driving status and the selected driving mode. Sounds composed especially for the Performance sound world - for charging or infotainment functions, for example - round off the AMG experience.

The driving dynamics keep what the sound promises: if the temperature and state of charge are suitable, the maximum power and torque for RACE START can be briefly increased. In this case the Mercedes‑AMG 53 4MATIC+ takes just 3.4 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h. Onboard bass actuators and speakers make the power of the electric motors clear even when stationary, and provide an emotionally charged sound backdrop to the high acceleration. The AMG-specific graphics in the displays also visually underscore the driving performance. The AMG sound experience can also be deactivated at any time via the settings of the multimedia system, and separately for the exterior and interior.

Further options for even more dynamism

Numerous AMG options enhance the dynamic impression if required These include design features such as the AMG Night Package Dark Chrome, red brake callipers, AMG carbon trim elements and AMG seat covers in nappa leather with specific seat graphics. The high-performance electric saloon can also be technically further refined for even more driving dynamics, for example with corresponding hardware such as the AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system. There is also a choice of aerodynamically optimised 21- and 22-inch AMG light-alloy wheels.

AMG TRACK PACE, the virtual race engineer, is also available as an option: the software is part of the MBUX infotainment system and permanently records more than 80 vehicle-specific data (e.g. speed, acceleration), for example while driving on a racetrack. On top of this, lap and sector times are displayed, as well as the respective difference from a reference time. Because specific display elements are shown in green or red, the driver is able to see at a glance without reading numbers whether they are currently faster or slower than the best time.

The data are displayed on the multimedia display, in the instrument cluster and on the optional head-up display.

Sustainable use of electrical power thanks to Mercedes me Charge

With Mercedes me Charge, customers always charge green at every public charging station throughout Europe as of 2021. High-quality guarantees of origin ensure that as much green power from renewable energies is fed into the grid as is withdrawn via Mercedes me Charge. In the first three years after the purchase of an EQS 53 4MATIC+, there is no basic charge for Mercedes me Charge and therefore "green charging" for customers. Another advantage is IONITY Unlimited: All European EQS customers can use the IONITY fast charging network free of charge for one year via Mercedes me Charge. The new plug & charge function makes charging the EQS particularly convenient.

Mercedes me Charge is currently the largest charging network worldwide: It currently has more than 500,000 AC and DC charging points in 31 countries, including over 200,000 in Europe. Also included are the 336 fast-charging stations of the IONITY quick-charging network co-founded by Mercedes-Benz. In addition, the functionality of Mercedes me Charge in MBUX has been expanded to include functions such as filtering and forecasting the availability of charging stations.

Mercedes me App: easy operation on smartphone and tablet

The Mercedes me App offers many improved and new functions since the last revision. These include a filter option that allows the charging points to be sorted according to criteria such as availability or charging capacity. The app now also shows how busy the respective charging station is likely to be during the course of the day, based on a probability calculation.

Predictive route planning and efficient driving with Electric Intelligence

As far as Navigation with Electric Intelligence is concerned, the name says it all. Because it plans the fastest and most convenient route, including charging stops, based on numerous factors and reacts dynamically to traffic jams or a change in driving style, for example. Electric Intelligence plans a fast and comfortable route in advance, including charging stops, based on numerous factors such as the calculated energy demand. The system includes all relevant data in the calculation, from topography and route to driving speed and heating and cooling requirements.

With Electric Intelligence, the EQS 53 also reacts dynamically to the traffic situation on the planned route. The vehicle records traffic tailbacks and road closures, as well as changes in energy demand. For its calculations the system uses information from the cloud, which it combines with onboard data.

The planned route can be edited individually. For example, the customer can set the additional reserve at the destination and at the charging station (SoC, State of Charge) - ten percent SoC is standard. If the "Charge at destination" function is selected, the set reserve may be undercut until the destination is reached. MBUX indicates whether the available battery capacity is sufficient to drive back to the starting point without charging.

Further options for individual route planning:

  • The route calculation prefers manually added charging stations along the route
  • The driver can exclude suggested charging stations
  • Calculation of the expected charging costs per charging stop

If there is a risk of not reaching the destination or the charging station with the chosen settings, MBUX informs the driver in good time with a note to activate the ECO driving functions, thanks to "Active range monitoring".

Comprehensive safety concept: Battery is crash-protected in the underbody

The battery sits in a crash-protected area in the underbody, embedded in the body shell structure including an extruded aluminium profile on the side. During extrusion, a heated block of metal is pushed through the dies and turns into an endless section, which is then cut to fit. This makes highly complex sections that are precisely tailored to the requirements possible.  The housing with energy absorbing structures at the front and side as well as a rigid, double-walled base plate provide additional protection for the modules.

Extensive crash and component tests have been part of the standard procedure at Mercedes-Benz for decades, and the standard is acknowledged to be high - the internal requirements are often significantly more stringent than the law requires. The company also attaches great importance to the best possible protection for the batteries. The test criteria include, among other things, the battery behaviour under shock load and in the event of foreign object penetration. Overheating and overcharging are also important parts of the tests. 

In addition, there is a separate, multi-level safety system for everyday operation. This includes, for example, temperature, voltage or insulation monitoring as a continuously monitoring safety system. If a fault occurs, the battery switches off. Crash monitoring when stationary (during DC charging) is also standard.

Sustainability in production and materials

The roof of Factory 56, the production site of the AMG EQS, is fitted with 12,000 photovoltaic modules. These have a maximum output of around 5000 kWp and can thus cover around 30 percent of the factory's energy needs on an annual average. Overall, the required energy requirement is reduced by 25 percent compared to other assembly shops. The bottom line is that Factory 56 is a zero-carbon factory - completely CO2-neutral. 40 percent of the roof area of Factory 56 has greenery, and recycled concrete was used for the first time in the main building. Production of the highly complex lithium-ion batteries at the Hedelfingen plant, part of the Stuttgart-Untertürkheim location, will be CO2-neutral from 2022. As part of strategic partnerships, Mercedes‑Benz has also agreed to purchase battery cells manufactured in a CO2-neutral manner.

The components weigh over 80 kilograms and are made of resource-saving materials (recycled and renewable raw materials). A new yarn made of regenerated nylon is sewn into the floor coverings of the all-electric AMG model. One ton of this yarn saves over 6.5 tons of CO2 compared to new material. The steel for the vehicle body consists of 80 per cent secondary steel, most of which is obtained from recycled steel scrap.

After use in the vehicle, a second lease of life is possible for batteries: For example, in an energy bank operated by Mercedes-Benz Energy GmbH. Together with its partners, the company has already brought three large-scale energy banks with a total of around 50 MWh of energy from automotive battery systems into the German electricity grid. The first 2nd-life battery storage system was connected to the grid in October 2016 in Lünen, Westphalia.

포르쉐가 미래 레이싱 카 이미지를 강조한 비전 그란투리스모(Porsche Vision Gran Turismo)를 공개했습니다. 비전이라는 이름에서 알 수 있듯이 소니의 레이싱 게임 그란투리스모를 위한 가상의 레이싱 카입니다.

워낙 많은 마니아층을 거느린 게임이다보니 고성능 차 브랜드들이 마케팅 차원에서 이런 류의 가상 모델을 만들죠. 포르쉐도 예외는 아닙니다. 지금까지 몇 대의 비전 시리즈를 공개했으니까요.

실제 만들기 위함이 아니라 가상 세계에서 즐길 목적이기에 기존의 포르쉐 틀을 벗어나 디자이너의 창의성이 그대로 녹아들었습니다. 그렇다고 하더라도 포르쉐 유전자를 포기할 수는 없기에 숨은 그림찾기 식으로 몇몇 아이덴티티를 심어 놓았습니다. 예컨대, 네 개의 선으로 표현한 DRL과 하나의 선으로 연결한 테일램프 디자인이 대표적입니다.

나머지 부분은 꽤 급진적으로 그렸습니다. 루프는 전투기의 캐노피 방식이고 프런트 휠 하우징 뒤에 방향지시등과 사이드 카메라를 숨겨 놓았습니다. 실내는 운전자만을 위한 몰빵 컨셉입니다. 

직사각형 모양의 스티어링 휠에는 GT 레이스카 수준의 다양한 스위치들이 나열되어 있고 그 앞으로 HUD를 겸한 투명 계기판이 있죠. 시트와 벨트는 금방이라도 레이스에 뛰어들 욕망을 불어 일으키기에 충분한 스타일이네요.

포르쉐에 따르면 이번 컨셉은 내년 3월 중 런칭될 그란투리스모 7에서 경험할 수 있답니다.

아블로의 유족의 뜻에 따라 대중에 선보이게 된 이 프로젝트는 예정되어 있던 언론행사 대신 마이애미에 위치한 루벨 박물관(Rubell Museum)에 12월 1일부터 2일까지 특별 전시되며, 지역 디자인 스쿨 학생들을 위한 독점적인 관람 시간도 별도로 마련돼 눈길을 끌었다.
프로젝트 마이바흐의 전기 쇼카는 메르세데스-벤츠의 기존 디자인에서 벗어나 모든 요소를 처음부터 새롭게 설계했다. 아블로는 메르세데스-벤츠의 디자인 총괄 고든 바그너(Gorden Wagener)와 함께 메르세데스-마이바흐의 럭셔리 정체성을 새로운 디자인 언어로 해석했으며, 기능과 스타일, 창의성의 경계를 넓혔다.

대자연에서 영감을 받아 탄생한 이 전기 쇼카는 2인승 전기 오프로드 쿠페 모델로6m에 달하는 거대한 그란 투리스모 비율과 대형 오프로드 휠, 독특한 부착물이 완벽한 조화를 이뤘다. 생산 요건에 구애 받지 않는 창의적이고 자유로운 디자인을 통해 미래 전기 모빌리티 시대 여행의 모습을 개념화했으며, 대표적인 예로 투명한 표면의 후드 아래 태양 전지가 탑재될 수 있도록 디자인된 점을 들 수 있다.
무엇보다 프로젝트 마이바흐는 메르세데스-마이바흐의 럭셔리한 환경 속에서 대자연을 탐험할 수 있는 새로운 방법을 제시한다. 궁극의 럭셔리 브랜드인 메르세데스-마이바흐의 디자인 요소들이 새로운 아웃도어 어드벤처 디자인 모티브와 자연스러운 결합을 이루고 있다.
 

메르세데스-벤츠는 “버질 아블로의 타계 소식에 큰 충격을 받았으며 그의 가족과 동료들에게 진심으로 애도의 뜻을 전한다”며, “그의 독특한 비전을 담은 프로젝트 마이바흐를 공개함으로써, 경계를 넘나드는 상상력으로 협업의 무한한 가능성을 제시하고 주변에 영감을 주었던 재능 넘치는 디자이너의 업적에 경의를 표한다”고 밝혔다. ​

포르쉐가 ‘2021 LA 오토쇼’에서 718 모델의 새로운 플래그십 모델 ‘718 카이맨 GT4 RS (718 Cayman GT4 RS)’를 공개했다.  

최고출력 500마력(PS)의 고회전 미드 엔진을 탑재한 중량 1,415kg의 포르쉐 카이맨 GT4 RS는 주행의 즐거움을 재정의한다. 718 카이맨 GT4 RS는 718 모델의 새로운 플래그십으로 경량 구조, 극단적으로 민첩한 섀시 셋업, 정교한 에어로다이내믹, 독특한 사운드 트랙이 인상적인 드라이빙 머신이다.  

718 카이맨 GT4 RS는 컴팩트 미드 엔진 스포츠카 중 가장 강력한 모델이다. 뉘르부르크링 노르트슐라이페 서킷에서 718 카이맨 GT4 보다 23초 이상 빠른 랩 타임을 달성했다.

 

특히, 911 GT3 컵 레이싱카와 911 GT3 양산 모델에 탑재된 자연 흡기 6기통 엔진을 탑재해 극대화된 주행의 즐거움을 선사한다. 엔진 회전수는 최대 9,000rpm이며, 718 카이맨 GT4에 비해 80마력(PS)이 증가해 중량 대비 마력은 2.83kg/PS다. 최대토크는 43.8kg∙m에서 45.9 kg∙m으로 증가했다.

 

718 라인 최상위 모델 718 카이맨 GT4 RS의 두드러진 특징 중 하나는 운전석과 조수석 창문 뒤에 위치한 에어 인테이크다. 에어 인테이크는 공기 흐름을 개선하는 동시에 감성적인 인테이크 사운드를 만들어 낸다. 리어 휠 앞의 인상적인 에어 인테이크는 그대로 유지되며 엔진 쿨링을 돕는다.

 

모든 최신 RS 모델과 마찬가지로 신형 718 GT4 RS는 포르쉐 듀얼 클러치 변속기(PDK)를 제공하며, 7단 기어를 빠른 속도로 변속해 최대 성능을 보장한다. 스티어링 휠에서 손을 떼지 않아도 수동으로 기어 변경이 가능한 기어 변속 패들 또는, 새롭게 디자인된 센터 콘솔의 셀렉터 레버를 사용할 수 있다.

 

짧은 기어비의 스포티한 PDK는 미드엔진 스포츠카의 놀라운 가속력을 보장한다. 718 카이맨 GT4 RS 정지상태에서 100km/h까지 가속하는데 단 3.4초(PDK 적용 시 3.9초) 소요되며, 7단 기어에서 최고 속도는 315km/h(PDK 적용 시 302km/h)다.

 

전형적인 RS 스타일의 경량 구조는 718 카이맨 GT4 RS 디자인을 정의하는 중요한 요소다. 탄소섬유 강화플라스틱(CFRP)으로 제작된 보닛 및 프런트 윙 덕분에 공차 중량은 1,415kg이며, 이는 PDK를 장착한 718 GT4보다 35kg 가벼운 무게다. 단열재의 양을 줄인 경량 카펫, 경량 글래스로 제작된 리어 윈도우 및 경량 도어 패널 적용으로 불필요한 무게를 제거했다.

 

새로운 고정식 스완 넥 리어 윙, 알루미늄 윙 지지대는 GT4 RS만의 독특한 외관 디자인을 완성시킨다. 포르쉐 911 RSR GT 레이스카에서 파생된 이 효율적인 리어 윙은 양산 모델 최초로 911 GT3에 적용했다. 718 카이맨 대비 30mm 낮은 지상고, 눈길을 사로잡는 프런트 휠 아치의 통풍구, 리어 디퓨저가 연결된 공기 역학적인 차체 하부 패널, 다중 조절 가능한 프런트 디퓨저, 사이드 블레이드가 결합된 새로운 프런트 스포일러 립은 트랙 전용 퍼포먼스 모드에서 기존 GT4 모델 보다 약 25퍼센트 더 큰 다운포스를 생성한다.

 

새로운 섀시 역시 성능 향상에 기여한다. 볼 조인트가 섀시와 차체를 단단히 결합해 더 정확하고 직접적인 핸들링을 제공한다. 서킷 주행을 위한 조절식 섀시에는 RS 전용 쇽업쇼버 셋업와 개선된 스프링과 안티 롤 바를 포함한다.

 

옵션 사양의 바이작 패키지는 GT4 RS의 다이내믹한 디자인을 더욱 돋보이게 한다. 프런트 러기지-컴파트먼트 리드, 프로세스 에어 인테이크, 쿨링 에어 인테이크, 에어박스 커버, 사이드 미러 상부 트림과 리어 윙은 카본 위브 방식으로 마감된다. 티타늄 소재의 테일파이프는 포르쉐 935모델의 배기 시스템과 유사하다. 후면에 고정된 롤케이지도 티타늄 소재로 만들어졌다. 레이스-텍스(Race-Tex) 소재가 대시보드 상단 부분을 덮고 포르쉐 로고가 리어 윈도우를 장식한다. 바이작 패키지를 통해 20인치 단조 알루미늄 휠 대신 20인치 단조 마그네슘 휠을 선택할 수 있다.

 

718 카이맨 GT4에 비해 모든 점에서 향상된 GT4 RS는 718 라인 중 가장 강력한 성능을 자랑한다. 뉘르부르크링 노르트슐라이페 서킷의 랩 타임 기록은 이를 입증한다. 포르쉐 브랜드 홍보대사 요르크 베르그마이스터는 총 길이 20.832km 서킷을 7분 9.300초에 주파했다. 특히, 기존 20.6 킬로미터 랩에서 7분 4.511초를 기록하며, 718 카이맨 GT4보다 23.6초 빠른 랩 타임을 달성했다.

 

718 카이맨 GT4 RS 구매 고객을 위해 포르쉐 디자인이 특별 제작한 ‘포르쉐 디자인 크로노그래프 718 카이맨 GT4 RS’는 견고한 하이-테크 티타늄 소재 기반의 고성능 경량 디자인 콘셉트로 차량만큼이나 역동적이다. 와인딩 로터는 스포츠카 림을 착안했으며, 차량과 함께 특정 컬러를 선택할 수 있다.

 

포르쉐 718 카이맨 GT4 RS의 19퍼센트 부가세 및 국가 별 특별 사양을 포함한 판매 가격은 141,338유로부터 시작하며, 오는 12월부터 전 세계 순차적으로 인도될 예정이다. 모든 제원 및 옵션 정보는 국가 별로 상이하며 국내 출시 일정 및 가격은 미정이다.

가 새로운 아이코나 시리즈, 데이토나 SP3(Daytona SP3)를 공개했다. 2021 페라리 피날리 몬디알리 행사가 열린 무젤로 서킷에서 처음으로 모습을 드러낸 데이토나 SP3는 2018년에 첫 선을 보인 페라리 몬자 SP1/SP2에 이어 새롭게 페라리 아이코나 시리즈에 합류하는 한정판 모델이다.

 

오늘날 활용 가능한 가장 혁신적인 재료와 기술을 사용해 극도로 모던한 효과를 부여한 아이코나 시리즈는 페라리의 가장 상징적인 자동차가 보유한, 시대를 초월한 스타일링을 재해석함으로써 페라리의 역사를 기념하는 차량이다. 이 새로운 아이코나의 이름은 1967년, 데이토나 24시 레이스에서의 전설적인 1-2-3  피니시를 떠올리게 한다. 동시에 모터 스포츠 분야에서 페라리가 최고의 위치에 서는 데 기여한 페라리 스포츠 프로토타입에 대한 경의의 표시다.

 

1967년 2월 6일에 개최된 인터내셔널 월드 스포츠카 챔피언십 데이토나 24시 레이스의 첫번째 라운드에서 페라리는 1, 2, 3위를 차지하며 페라리 역사상 가장 위대한 업적을 세웠다. 포드의 홈그라운드에서 나란히 결승선의 체크 무늬 깃발을 통과하며 전설적인 피니시를 선보인 세 대의 차량(1위 330 P3/4, 2위 330 P4, 3위 412 P)은 페라리 330 P3 발전의 정점을 보여줬다.

330 P3는 수석 엔지니어 마우로 포르기에리(Mauro Forghieri)가 레이싱 카의 3가지 핵심 요소인 엔진, 섀시, 공기역학 분야에서 엄청난 발전을 이뤄낸 차량이다. 330 P3/4는 수 세대에 걸쳐 엔지니어 및 디자이너가 클로즈드 휠(closed-wheel) 레이싱의 황금기이자 내구성의 기준점으로 여긴 1960년대의 스포츠 프로토타입 정신을 완벽하게 담아냈다.

데이토나 SP3의 디자인은 “콘트라스트(대조)”, “숭고한 조각적 아름다움”, 일종의 날카로운 선(330 P4, 350 캔 암, 512S와 같은 레이싱 카의 디자인에서 공기역학의 중요성이 급증하고 있음을 보여주는 요소)이 번갈아 나타나는 “관능적 표면” -  이 3가지가 조화롭게 상호작용한 결과물이다. 탈착식 하드톱의 ‘타르가’ 보디를 채택한 호기로운 결정 역시 스포츠 프로토타입에서 영감을 받았다. 그 결과, 데이토나 SP3는 운전의 즐거움 뿐만 아니라 유용한 성능까지 선사한다.

 

기술적인 관점에서 보면, 데이토나 SP3는 1960년대 레이싱 업계의 정교한 엔지니어링 솔루션에서 영감을 받았다. 그 당시와 마찬가지로 데이토나 SP3 역시, 앞서 언급한 세가지 기본 영역(엔진, 섀시, 공기역학)에 대한 연구를 통해 최고의 성능을 달성했다.

 

데이토나 SP3는 전형적인 레이싱 카를 표방한 미드-리어 자연 흡기 V12를 장착했다. 이는 페라리 엔진 중 가장 강력한 출력인 840cv을 내뿜으며 697Nm의 토크와 9,500 rpm이라는 최대 회전수를 자랑한다.

 

섀시는 포뮬러 1 기술을 사용한 복합 소재로 제작되었는데, 이는 페라리의 마지막 슈퍼카 라페라리 이후 로드카에서는 선보인 적이 없는 소재다. 시트는 중량을 줄임과 동시에 레이싱 카와 유사한 드라이빙 포지션을 보장하기 위해 섀시에 통합되었다.

 

마지막으로, 데이토나 SP3에 영감을 준 다른 차량들과 마찬가지로 본 모델의 공기역학 솔루션과 디자인은 순수하게 수동적 공기역학 솔루션(passive aero solutions)만을 사용해 최대의 효율을 달성할 수 있도록 설계되었다. 하부에서 저기압의 공기를 뿜어내는 침니(chimney)를 포함해, 이전의 다른 차량에서는 찾아볼 수 없었던 특징들 덕분에 데이토나 SP3는 능동적 공기역학 장치(active aero devices)에 의존하지 않고 페라리 역사상 가장 효율적인 공기역학 성능을 가질 수 있게 됐다. 

 

이렇듯 영리하게 기술적인 혁신들을 통합한 덕분에, 이 차의 제로 백은 2.85 초, 제로 이백은 7.4 초에 불과하다. 짜릿한 성능, 극한의 셋업, 빠져들 것 같은 V12의 사운드는 비교할 수 없는 운전의 즐거움을 선사한다.

포드가 오프로드 특성을 강조한 브롱코 스페셜 버전을 공개했다. 역사상 가장 강력한 심장을 얹고 등장한 ‘브롱코 DR(Ford Bronco DR)’이 주인공이다. 일반도로에서 주행이 불가능한 모델로 길이 아닌 곳을 달리기 위해 태어났다. 개발 컨셉은 사막의 레이서(Desert Racer)다. 

 

엔진은 최고출력 400마력 이상을 내는 V8 5.0리터다. 여기에 10단 자동변속기를 조합하고 사륜구동으로 움직인다. 랩터보다 과감하고 특별하다는 증거다.

 

워낙 많은 부분이 바뀐 터라 기본형 브롱코의 느낌은 그릴과 헤드램프 정도에서만 느껴진다. 팬더를 차체 바깥으로 크게 부풀려 거대한 오프로드 타이어(BFGoodrich 37인치)를 품었다. 

 

멀티매틱 DSSV 댐퍼와 롱 스트로크 스프링을 조합해 만든 서스펜션 덕분에 차체가 80mm 위로 솟았다. 기본형과 비교하면 앞쪽의 휠 상하 가동 범위가 55.1%, 뒤는 58.6%나 늘었다. 거친 사막뿐만 아니라 바윗길도 쉽게 넘어설 능력이다.  접근각은 47도에 달하고 이탈각은 37도 정도다. 

 

실내도 저돌적이다. 차체 강성을 높이기 위해 풀 세이프티 롤 케이지를 장착했으며 레이싱 시트를 달아 과격한 동장에도 운전자를 든든하게 지지할 수 있도록 했다. 레이스 카 사양의 모텍 C187(Motec C187) 디스플레이도 선물했다.

 

리어 시트는 과감히 생략했다. 대신, 대용량 냉각 장치를 붙이고 스페이스 프레임을 짜 스페어 타이어를 품었다. 장거리 주행에 대비해 246L에 달하는 대형 연료탱크도 장착했다.

 

포드는 이 특별한 브롱코를 가지고 ‘Baja 1000’에 참가할 예정이다. 그리고 나서 완성도를 높여 내년 하반기부터  50대 한정 생산해 판매할 계획이다. 값은 25만 달러(약 2억 9,300만원) 정도. 벌써부터 오프로드 마니아들아 '꼴깍' 거리며 군침 흘리는 소리가 들리는 듯하다.
