Brabus presents an aerodynamics package for the Mercedes EQS. The range benefits from the measures.
So far, Brabus saw its raison d'être primarily in making Mercedes models stronger and faster, as well as making them look extreme. The team from Bottrop is now also doing the latter with the EQS electric sedan. However, not in the well-known way, but to further improve its already excellent aerodynamics. The EQS does not become stronger or faster this way - but the energy consumption drops, which consequently increases the range.
As usual, Brabus has perfectly matched its components to the production car in the wind tunnel. A spoiler lip is now wedged under the front apron, which, with its raised outer bolsters, is intended to reduce both the drag coefficient and the lift. There are also new carbon covers in the air intakes in the bumper. In front of the rear wheel arches, the tuner attaches additional air deflectors. At the rear, a diffuser and a spoiler lip on the boot lid optimize the drag coefficient. Incidentally, this is a record-breaking 0.20 for the production car - and is to be improved by a further 7.2 percent from the Brabus counterpart. This should increase the range by up to seven percent on average (measured in the speed range between 100 and 140 km/h).
Two rim designs
The monoblock Z rims in the "Platinum Edition" fulfill not only visual but also aerodynamic tasks. In the photo vehicle, the rounds are used in the dimensions 9x22 inches at the front and 10.5x22 inches at the rear and have tires in size 255/35 ZR22 at the front and 295/30 ZR22 at the rear. But they are also available in 20-inch format. The pendulum swings even more in the direction of aerodynamics when the monoblock M wheels in disc design rotate in the corresponding housings; they can be seen by the car standing in the wind tunnel. The whole thing works particularly effectively if the EQS is also lowered by 15 millimeters at the front and 20 millimeters at the rear using an electronic module for the air suspension.
The interior measures are all about design. Brabus donated door sills with the company logo, which can change color in line with the ambient lighting. There are also pedals made of aluminum or carbon as well as new carpets and a trunk mat, each of which is edged with leather. Speaking of which: for the interior, Brabus naturally offers animal skin finishes that are tailored to the customer's wishes in terms of color and aesthetics.
If you book the complete aerodynamics package including the monoblock Z rims in 22 format, you pay 36,360 euros for it.
With its aerodynamics package for the Mercedes EQS, Brabus primarily aims to further optimize the already outstanding aerodynamics of the electric luxury class sedan ex works. Technically, nothing changes - apart from the electronic lowering.
