So you’ve got a luxury sedan with some of the most impressive creature comforts and some of the most spectacular tech currently available on the market. But you’d rather ride an electric scooter instead. Yeah, Mercedes is reading your mind and gives you a scooter if you buy the EQS 580 4MATIC City Edition.
Times have changed. Even those who can afford the latest luxury cars out there ride the metro. Or the electric scooters for a change. Mercedes knows this and comes up with this idea for the customers in Southern California. Those who drive home with the Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC City Edition also get the package that includes an electric scooter subscription. It will be available for one whole year and it brings access to an Unagi Model One Voyager electric scooter. It can travel as far as 25 miles (40 kilometers) before it needs charging again.
If you want to buy that electric scooter, you’ll have to pay $1,190. If you want to extend your renting habits after the year in which you can use it for free, it’s north of $800.
It’s not only that the customers are getting. They will also benefit from a ChargePoint Home Flex Charger, up to $1,000 for home installation through Qmerit, a $250 credit to ChargePoint public charges, and access to Qmerit Concierge. Two-year 30-minute free charging sessions on Electrify America’s C network is also offered.
To make sure others know what you bought, the Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC City Edition sports the City Edition badge on the C-pillars and on the center console. Customers can choose the Manufaktur Diamond White Metallic paintwork and either the Macchiato Beige or Space Grey leather interior. The Twilight Blue Metallic is the other exterior option available and this one goes with either the Neva Grey or the Sable Brown leather. The AMG wheels are part of the plan.
The Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC City Edition gets the two-motor powertrain for an all-wheel drive setup, goo for 523 PS (516 HP) and 855 Nm (631 lb-ft) of torque. The figures are enough for a 4.1-second run from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h). A 100.8-kW battery pack allows the electric sedan to drive as far as 340 miles (547 kilometers) on a single charge. No word on the pricing of the City Edition, but the standard EQS 580 4MATIC starts at $125,950 in the U.S.
Part of the money the German carmaker is getting for every unit that sells goes to Safe Kids California charity. Only 150 such cars will see the light of day.
