Keith’s bad sound makes good video look bad.
+1… Amen… MBs switching to capacitive controls on the steering wheel is a BIG mistake… No secret there … simply ask other OEMs. . Viewed the MB EQS in person, for kicks.. Not ready for EVs just yet.
In May we ordered a ’23 E-450 All Terrain wagon … Be damned is the nonsensical capacitive mistake… A good wagon has gone bad ..
The EQS is a rich person’s toy. For the money, an Arizona built Lucid Air is cheaper, faster, better looking, and easier to use.
When it comes down to charging an electric car and air conditioning, what will you do? Rolling blackouts are happening across the U.S.A.
Where? I have experienced any in Los Angeles.
Are you guys in CT
I think you can see the Mercedes’s pedestrian light flash at 17:12 in the footage of the car coming around the corner on the track. The headlights seem to flash twice, presumably in response to the camera operator standing at the edge of the track.
Agree with the EV infrastructure. We not only need new chargers but we need existing ones repaired and useable. There is no accountability for this currently.
14 minutes in and nothing has been said about the car – performance, handling, range, etc….
Those UIs are a joke! for $100k? oh my.
At the $140,000 price point, I would get 2 or 3 vehicles each with a different mission; short trips by myself, road trip with family, going to the track, etc.
HELLO EMILY, KELLY, AND ” MOUNTAIN MAN” KEITH!! OH WAIT A SEC, KEITH, YOU TRIMMED-UP!! NO MORE ” MOUNTAIN MAN” LOOK!! THE “KEITH CLASSIC” IS BACK!! YAY!! AND ITS NICE TO SEE MORE THAN ONE LADY ON THE PANEL AGAIN; THANKS!! SO THIS EQS ELECTRIC CAR IS A ROLLING TESTBED FOR NEW TECHNOLOGY, HUH?? BUT IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WITH THESE MANY NEW FEATURES IS NOT HOW WELL OR DIFFICULT THEY ARE FOR PEOPLE TO USE, BUT THAT MERCEDES FAILED TO PROVIDE A GOOD VEHICLE TO DRIVER INTERFACE ( sorry if I’m using the wrong term here guys ) TO ENABLE DRIVERS TO BOTH USE AND UNDERSTAND ALL THIS “STUFF” EASILY; AND I’D LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT YOU THREE PEOPLE, BY MEANS OF YOUR JOBS, TEST DRIVE, AND USE THE TECHNOLOGY IN DOZENS OF NEW CARS EVERY YEAR; SO IF YOU’RE HAVING TROUBLE WITH THIS “STUFF” IMAGINE WHAT FUN US “REGULAR” DRIVERS ARE GONNA EXPERIENCE IN ONE OF THESE!! AND KEITH, ON THAT RIDICULOUSLY COMPLICATED SUNROOF BUTTON; DIDN’T ANY ENGINEERS, OR TEST DRIVERS FOR MERCEDES TRY THIS OUT FIRST BEFORE THEY RELEASED THIS CAR FOR MASS-PRODUCTION?? UNEXCEPTABLE!! THANKS GUYS!! ( and girls!! ). CHAS ORVIS, PLAINVILLE, CT.
