Mercedes-AMG has launched its first battery-powered electric vehicle (EV).

The luxury car manufacturer claims the new EQS 53 produces zero emissions and has an output of up to 560kW.

The car has two electric motors, can reach a top speed of 155mph and is compatible with quick chargers. Mercedes-Benz claims the car can travel up to 300km with just 19 minutes of charging.

Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG, said: “With our first all-electric AMG vehicle, we will undoubtedly appeal to and win over a new clientele for Mercedes-AMG.

“In addition, the EQS 53 is further proof that Mercedes-Benz is consistently driving electrification forward in all of its brands as well. Further all-electric AMG models will follow in the not-too-distant future, also on our AMG platform developed entirely in-house”.
