Despite having more range on paper, the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 didn’t match the Tesla Model 3 Long Range in a recent cold-weather range test in Norway.
Winter testing, conducted by the Norwegian Automobile Federation (NAF) Automotive publication enginePut a total of 31 electric vehicles (EVs) on the road to see which one can drive the farthest.
The test was also conducted to see which electric vehicles experienced the largest deviation from their specified range when driving at low temperatures.
With temperatures ranging from 0°C to -10°C (14°F to 32°F), the long-range Model 3 topped the list for longest distance traveled at 521 kilometers (324 miles).
The Model 3 was also among the leaders in terms of yaw, seeing just 15.5% off its WLTP rating range of 614 km.
The EQS 580 has a WLTP rated range of 645 kilometers (400 miles), but was only able to travel 513 kilometers (318 miles), 20% less than it would in optimal conditions.
Also among the group of cars tested was the Y Long Range, which impressed a lot with its 451 km mileage, 11.05% lower than expected.
engine Note that the Model Y’s results were particularly impressive because the last 16 kilometers (10 miles) of its driving was in cooler temperatures and on more slope than the BYD Tang, which topped the results with just 11.05% deflection.
Below are the full results of the test. (free: Haakon Ballstad)
