Electrify America, Mercedes-Benz to provide two years of complimentary fast charging for EQS EV

Under the agreement, first owners and lessees of the EQS will receive complimentary 30-minute charging per session at over 600 public stations across the country for the first two years.

Electrify America has made an agreement with Mercedes-Benz USA to provide drivers of the all-electric EQS complimentary charging over two years at Electrify America EV charging stations. The EQS luxury sedan hits showrooms this fall.

Under the agreement, first owners and lessees of the EQS will receive complimentary 30-minute charging per session at over 600 public stations across the country for the first two years from a Mercedes me Charge account activation. Drivers will be able to manage their charging plan through the proprietary Mercedes me Charge platform and driver app.

Also, Electrify America and Daimler AG are providing drivers with Plug & Charge functionality per the ISO15118 standard, enabling EQS drivers with an activated Mercedes me Charge account to start a session and receive complimentary charging by connecting the Electrify America High Power DC charger, simply by plugging in. No manual steps for authentication or initiation will be required. Electrify America charging technology provides charging speeds of up to 150 and 350 kilowatts for capable vehicles.

Separately, future Mercedes-EQ battery-electric and Mercedes-Benz plug-in hybrid vehicles will also receive standard charging services. Under this agreement, drivers of eligible models will be able to locate Electrify America stations and check charger availability via Mercedes me Charge platform and driver app to initiate driver-paid charging sessions.
