The Mercedes EQS luxury electric sedan is one of the most aerodynamic vehicles on the market straight from the factory. Brabus now promises even better drag coefficient and longer range thanks to aerodynamics, new wheels and lowering.

According to Brabus, in the wind tunnel, new external components were found to improve the Cd value by 7.2 percent compared to the factory figure of 0.20. This reduces the resistance to movement, which has a positive effect on the range. The range is increased by an average of 7.0% at speeds from 100 to 140 km/h thanks to optimized aerodynamics. Currently, the Mercedes EQS is offered in versions with a range of up to 783 kilometers in accordance with the WLTP standard.

The EQS looks even more dynamic thanks to the Brabus front spoiler. In addition, the carbon lip not only reduces the cd value, but also minimizes lift on the front axle thanks to the raised outer cheeks. A reduction of 100 percent was measured in the wind tunnel. Of course, this also improves driving stability at high speeds. The carbon fiber panels of the side air intakes in the front apron not only make the face more striking, but also direct the airflow to the radiators and front brakes in an even more targeted manner

To make the side sections more sporty and positively affect airflow, Brabus designers have developed carbon fiber deflectors that are mounted in front of the rear wheel arches. The rear has been upgraded with a diffuser and spoiler in the same material that reportedly reduces rear aerodynamic lift by up to 40 percent. The newly assembled monobloc alloy wheels are available in various designs up to 22 inches in diameter.

According to Brabus, the wheels on offer not only enhance the looks, but the handling becomes more agile thanks to the available wheel and tire combinations. An effect that can be further enhanced with the Brabus SportXtra module. It is adapted to air suspension using plug-and-play technology and lowers the electric luxury sedan by 15 millimeters at the front and 20 millimeters at the rear. This reduction also makes an important contribution to the reduction of the drag coefficient.
