Overview

Summary

First there was the EQS 450+, then later came the EQS 500 4MATIC. Now, Malaysia welcomes the 2023 Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+.

It underpins Mercedes’ Electric Vehicle Architecture (EVA2) platform, and is blessed with the AMG Night Package (trims – black/black chrome).

Fully-imported (CBU), the sole variant (EQS 53 4MATIC+) hailing from Germany is priced from MYR 798,888 (on-the-road, without insurance).

Each purchase comes with a four-year/unlimited-mileage warranty, and a 10-year/250,000 KM EV battery warranty.
