Initially Mercedes ECUC The electric SUV was the German auto maker’s first full electric vehicle. The plan was changed and instead of the electronic EQS the car dealership was unveiled among U.S. dealers, meaning the electric S-Class whose huge 107.8-kWh battery pack will make its first landing on U.S. soil.
Still after the price has been announced, ECUS will ship with the same luxury and technology features as the S-Class. It will enter the market to challenge Tesla Model S, Porsche Tecan, Audi E-Tron GT and Lucid Air. The automaker is aiming for a European WLTP 478 mile length for a larger battery pack. The EPA target has not been announced, but it will be lower due to more stringent testing in the United States. While we waited to see how far it would go in the middle of being connected to the grid, Mercedes gave us the opportunity to inspect the car and test some of its features.
