It all comes down to the rear headroom.
Mercedes is not hesitant to embrace electrification. The manufacturer developed an aggressive strategy, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down. Because of this, it feels like a new Mercedes-Benz EV is revealed every few months.
Mercedes nevertheless needs to make sure that its vehicles radiate the luxury that its customers have come to expect from the brand despite all this removal of gas-powered engines. The EQS, an electric variant of the S-Class sedan, served as the launch vehicle before the EQS SUV. An SUV is a taller car with more headroom, off-road ability, and the top attribute requested by the US market.
Mercedes nevertheless needs to make sure that its cars radiate the luxury that its customers have come to expect from the brand despite all this removal of gas-powered engines. The electric S-Class sedan, the EQS, served as the launch vehicle, and the EQS SUV came next. The most desired characteristic in the US market is found in an SUV, which is a taller vehicle with more headroom, off-road ability, and these qualities.
The extra headroom in the EQS SUV is the one thing S-Class owners switching to an electric luxury vehicle will notice, despite the amazing parity of tech features between the EQS and EQS SUV. Additionally, the design is better on the SUV, and if you choose all-wheel drive, the vehicle has off-roading capability for when your second home is up a dirt road.
Even with its peculiar regenerative brake pedal, we put the EQS SUV to the test and discovered that generally it’s an impressive entrance into the luxury EV SUV market. For the complete account, view the video below.
Wyoming wants to phase out sales of new EVs by 2035
It’s a dignified show of support for states like California.
One US state wants to go against the trend of states like California and New York, which are moving toward outlawing the sale of new gasoline-powered cars. The legislature of Wyoming is debating a resolution that would phase out the sale of new electric vehicles by 2035. Members of the state Senate and House have endorsed Senate Joint Resolution 4, which was introduced on Friday.
A group of legislators led by Senator Jim Anderson claim in the resolution that Wyoming’s “proud and cherished” oil and gas industry has generated “countless” employment and money for the state coffers. The state would have to construct “huge quantities of new power generation” to “sustain the misadventure of electric vehicles,” they continue, because Wyoming lacks the necessary charging infrastructure.
In order to phase out EVs completely by 2035, SJ4 asks citizens and companies to voluntarily restrict the sale and purchase of EVs. The resolution’s passing would be purely symbolic. In fact, rather than outright prohibiting EVs, the goal is to send a message to EV supporters. To that purpose, the last paragraph of SJ4 directs the Secretary of State of Wyoming to transmit copies of the resolution to California Governor Gavin Newsom and President Biden.
One of the bill’s sponsors, Senator Boner, told the Cowboy State Daily that the proposal was “maybe even tongue-in-cheek,” but that it was still a serious matter that called for a discussion in public. “I’m concerned with ensuring that the proposed remedies to the ‘climate catastrophe’ are genuinely workable in the real world. I simply dislike it when other nations try to impose unprepared technology.
Even while the resolution has the appearance of a political gimmick, it does make reference to actual economic anxiety. Wyoming was the eighth-largest crude oil producer in the US in 2021 with an output of 85.43 million barrels. One of the largest wind farms in the US is located in the state’s Carbon County. How the world moves to a zero-emissions economy in an equitable manner is something that is not enough discussed in relation to climate change. Due to the fact that they haven’t benefited as much from more recent technical advancements as their urban counterparts, people in many rural US areas have a legitimate fear of so-called green technologies. Consider the introduction of the internet. In 2018, Microsoft discovered that many rural villages lack access to the internet.
