We are flicking the switch: thanks to the product and technology brand EQ.
EQ stands for “Electric Intelligence” and is derived from the Mercedes-Benz brand values of “Emotion and Intelligence”. The new brand encompasses all key aspects for customer-focused electric mobility and extends beyond the vehicle itself. EQ offers a comprehensive electric mobility ecosystem of products, services, technologies and innovations. The spectrum ranges from electric vehicles to wallboxes and charging services.

    By 2022, it is anticipated Mercedes-Benz will offer 7 pure Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) across all segments. The first of which will is estimated to arrive in 2020; the EQC. The new generation of electric vehicles is based on an architecture developed specifically for battery-electric models. Locally emission-free driving is possible at all times, with impressive range possible from a single charge.

    Benefits

    • Smooth and powerful performance
    • Near silent, significant reductions in noise pollution
    • No driving emissions
    • Connected functionality
    • Can be plugged in at home or away
  • Plug-in Hybrid

    Mercedes-Benz vehicles with EQ Power branding are plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), featuring either a petrol or diesel powertrain combined with a High Voltage battery and electric motor. All-electric locally emission free driving is possible, as well as a hybrid mode, offering maximum efficiency. Our next generation of EQ Power models will offer state-of-the-art technology with even greater electric only range.

    Benefits: 

    • Increased power and torque
    • All-electric operation possible
    • Battery can be charged via power socket, regenerative braking or combustion engine
    • Reduced fuel consumption
    • Extended driving possible
       

    The Mercedes-AMG F1 W09 EQ Power+ proudly carries the “EQ Power+” designation. Mercedes-AMG, “EQ Power+” will stand for future performance hybrid models. EQ Power+ is also featured in the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE hyper car revealed in Frankfurt in 2017.

    Some of our vehicles benefit from EQ Boost technology, which feature a 48 volt integrated starter generator/motor alongside a combustion engine, this offers a better acceleration performance, lower emissions and improved efficiency. The EQ Boost system acts as both a starter motor and a “hybrid assist” motor. Though you do not plug-in to recharge the battery, the system recuperates energy from slowing down or braking for example.

    Benefits:

    • Smooth engine start up
    • Charges the battery with kinetic energy
    • Short distances can be covered on electric power.
    • Extra boost e.g. for overtaking
    • Reduces fuel consumption

    The new EQ Ready app helps you decide whether it makes sense personally to switch to an electric car or hybrid. The smartphone app can record you journeys, analyse your everyday mobility behaviour and compare it with numerous parameters of electric and hybrid vehicles. This makes it possible to try out e-mobility in a virtual yet realistic way. The EQ Ready app also recommends which alternatively powered model from Mercedes-Benz best matches your individual behaviour.
