German tuning company gives the Mercedes EQS a sportier exterior look and longer range ↺
The respected tuning company Brabus is probably a familiar name among car enthusiasts who are familiar with luxurious German automobiles, especially the ones that sport the world-famous three-pointed star. Brabus now also customizes modern EVs, but unlike their ICE counterparts, performance enhancements aren’t necessarily in the cards for these sophisticated electric drivetrains. Nevertheless, the tuner has now revealed some noteworthy modifications for the exterior of the Mercedes EQS.
Brabus’ new tuning kit or so-called "individualization program" for the Mercedes EQS comes with various customized body parts, such as an eye-catching front and rear bumper made of carbon as well as matching side skirts and a sporty rear spoiler, which is also made from carbon. In addition, the electric Mercedes EQS is lowered by up to 15 millimeters in the front and up to 25 millimeters in the rear via an easily installable plug-and-play module. Apparently, the lowering of the air suspension varies depending on the selected drive mode.
Furthermore, affluent Mercedes EQS owners may choose from over a dozen custom wheels which are available in sizes ranging from 20 to 22 inches. In conjunction with the more aerodynamic body parts and the lower ride height, the electric sedan benefits from less aerodynamic drag, and the 7.2 percent lower cW value should also result in a longer range at higher speeds. Unfortunately, this enticing tuning kit for the Mercedes EQS also comes at a fairly steep price. Depending on the configuration, the grand total for the parts alone can easily exceed €20,000 in Germany. In other international markets, prospective customers have to request their individual price on Brabus’ official website.
