Mercedes Lets You Unlock EQ Efficiency With $1200,
The way forward for tuning outlets already appears bleak with the rise of EVs. OTA (over-the-air) updates give producers the facility to remotely lock or unlock options in your car, together with its efficiency, and naturally they’re going to make you pay for it. Mercedes is already getting this ball rolling with a subscription-based efficiency bundle that may improve the facility output of its EQ line of EVs. All for the low, low worth of $1,200.00 (not together with tax).
Known as “Acceleration Enhance,” the replace will increase each torque and most energy output on your EQ EV. Mercedes says that energy output will improve by 20-24 %, whereas growing the general efficiency of the EV. Relying on the mannequin, zero to 60 mph instances drop 0.8 to 0.9 seconds which, if this had been a standard ICE-engined car being tuned, can be fairly spectacular.
This efficiency improve isn’t restricted to particular fashions both, it’s accessible throughout the EQ vary:
Mercedes-EQ EQE 350 4MATIC: improve from 215 kW to 260 kW, with 0-60 time altering from 6.0 seconds to approx. 5.1 seconds.
Mercedes-EQ EQE SUV 350 4MATIC: improve from 215 kW to 260 kW, with 0-60 time altering from 6.2 seconds to approx. 5.2 seconds.
Mercedes-EQ EQS 450 4MATIC: improve from 265 kW to 330 kW, with 0-60 time altering from . 5.3 seconds to approx. 4.5 seconds
Mercedes-EQ EQS SUV 450 4MATIC: improve from 265 kW to 330 kW, with 0-60 time altering from 5.8 seconds to approx. 4.9 seconds
Whereas the facility improve is welcome, the draw back is that that is a subscription. To unlock this efficiency requires that house owners drop $1,200 a yr to maintain this efficiency improve.
Maybe Mercedes missed the writing on the wall, contemplating the backlash BMW obtained over its heated seats subscription, their subsequent assurance that the U.S. wouldn’t see one thing like that, or the information that reveals some 75 % of automotive patrons don’t need subscriptions. I’ve reached out to Mercedes for remark and can replace if and after they reply.
