The 2022 World Car Awards jury from nearly 30 countries selected the winners across all six categories via a secret ballot. The Mercedes-Benz EQS impressed with its sharp styling while offering a drag coefficient of just 0.20. The EQS comes with a rear-wheel steering system with a standard 4.5 degree of rear steering angle. Powertrain options range from 328 bhp motor to the more powerful 518 bhp on the EQS 580. Both versions get a 107.8 kW lithium-ion battery with a claimed range of 770 km on the WLTP test cycle.
The EQS is the first in an extended range of EQ models to use Mercedes-Benz's dedicated EVA (Electric Vehicle Architecture) platform. The car is produced in Sindelfingen, Germany. Interestingly, Mercedes-Benz will bring the new EQS to India later this year but the big news is that the car will be assembled in the country at the automaker's Chakan facility.
