World’s Most Aerodynamic Car: Mercedes!

Mercedes-EQ, EQS

Mercedes has left no stone unturned with the efficient EQS – claiming to be the world’s most aerodynamic car. 

The “Made in India” EQS 580 4MATIC, introduced to the market by Mercedes-Benz, represents some key firsts for the German luxury brand as well as the wider EV luxury market in India. This opulent EV, often known as the S-Class of electric vehicles, is produced for the first time outside of Germany for the Indian market.

With a range of 857 km on a single charge, as confirmed by the Automotive Research Association of India, the EQS also becomes India’s longest-range EV (ARAI). Priced at Rs. 1.55 crore, ex-showroom, for the vehicle.

What’s an aerodynamic car?

Automobile manufacturers are paying more close attention to developing their vehicles to be fuel efficient as the price of gasoline rises.
Aerodynamic efficiency, or ensuring sure a car encounters as little resistance from the air it moves through, is one element of automotive design that contributes to fuel savings. Less fuel will be required to move along at any given speed the more aerodynamically efficient it is. The less drag there is, the faster the car can go and the more crucial it is to reduce air resistance.

Mercedes claims that the EQS is the most aerodynamic vehicle in the world and has a drag coefficient of 0.20. Better comfort, stable handling, a longer driving range, and increased efficiency are made possible by streamlining, seam sealing, seam minimisation, wheel design, tyre spoilers, underbody panelling, a rear lip spoiler, and self-lowering air suspension.

The frameless doors are another feature that raises a luxury car’s premium status. According to Mercedes, EQS’s all-electric architecture has created new design opportunities. Due to the absence of a substantial engine block on board, the behaviour in a frontal crash could be better modelled.

Interiors 

By using recycled and renewable raw materials as well as recycled steel among other things, the EQS’s sustainability is improved. The large 56-inch MBUX Hyperscreen is one of the cabin’s most noticeable features.

This incorporates the touchscreen system, the digital instrument panel, and an additional screen for the front passenger. The vehicle also includes a head-up display and a Burmester surround sound system with 15 speakers and a combined 710 watts of power.

Drive 

The powerful 400-volt battery is part of the high-power density lithium-ion battery, which has a useful energy content of 107.8 kWh and was created using lithium-ion technology. Since this is an electric vehicle, all of that torque is available right away. As a result, the automobile accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds and tops out at 210 km/h. Of course, the range is the main topic of conversation. Additionally, you may select among Eco, Comfort, Sport, and Individual drive modes, which alter the characteristics and agility of the accelerator pedal, among other things.

The emphasis in the Eco mode is on effectiveness and an energy-efficient driving manner. Additionally, the vehicle has a predictive route planning technology that determines the quickest and most practical path, taking into account charging stops, based on a variety of variables and dynamically responding to traffic jams or a change in driving style.

Charging 

The vehicle has a 22 kW conventional wall box AC charger and can support up to 200 kW of DC charging power. By the end of 2022, 80% of the nation will be serviced by the largest “Ultra-fast charging network,” according to Mercedes-Benz India.

For the first year, this network will only be available to clients of the brands, with free 24-hour charging services.

Conclusion: Safety Comes First 

The EQS has a maximum of 9 airbags and a 5-star EURO NCAP certification.

A driver’s side knee airbag is also standard, in addition to the driver and front passenger airbags. In the event of a serious frontal collision, it shields the legs from making contact with the steering wheel or instrument panel. Additionally, it has unique deformation zones, a rigid passenger cell, and restraining mechanisms. Designer belt buckles at the front and back encourage fastening since the lights pulse at that time. The vehicle also has an acoustic vehicle alert system, which uses a distinctive sound to warn pedestrians.
