The Mercedes-Benz EV Lineup
Before exploring electric car charging at home and access to public charging stations, let’s embrace the bold features of the all-electric lineup from our Mercedes-Benz dealership in Sacramento, CA. Our lineup includes the EQE sedan that features a combined horsepower of up to 288, the MBUX infotainment system with an augmented reality navigation system, and active ambient interior lighting.
The Mercedes-Benz EQB SUV is just as impressive with electric charging updates via the MBUX infotainment system and a redesigned three-row interior with ENERGIZING AIR CONTROL® Plus. You can also opt for the powerful Mercedes-Benz EQS-Class sedan that redefines the power available with an electric vehicle. This sedan accelerates from 0 to 60 MPH in 4.1 seconds and features an available 516 horsepower so you can make a bold impression on the road.
The lineup of electric vehicles (EVs) at Mercedes-Benz of Sacramento embraces style, safety, and technology that stands out from the competition, including Tesla models. See for yourself when scheduling a test drive.
What equipment do I need to charge at home?
The ChargePoint Homeflex NEMA 6-50 is the Level 2 at home charging unit recommended by Mercedes-Benz.
I have questions about chargers and the installation process, who can I contact?
For your convenience, Mercedes-Benz has partnered with Q-Merit in order to assist you with all of your home charging needs. Please contact Q-Merit at 1 (888) 272-0090 or your local electrician for additional information.
What’s the difference between Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 (DCFC) charging?
Level 1 is charging at home with a 120-volt circuit (i.e., using a standard electrical outlet). This normally provides 3-5 miles of charging per hour.
Level 2 is charging with a 240-volt circuit in the home or workplace. This requires professional installation of either a NEMA 14-50 outlet or a hardwired charging station, and can usually refill your EV battery overnight.
Level 3 or Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC) uses a 480-volt DC circuit, and typically provides about an 80% charge in just 30 minutes. These charging stations are generally found at commercial sites such as shopping centers or highway rest areas.
How often do I need to charge and how long does it take?
Every electric vehicle is different. For example, the EQS can go from 10% to 80% in just 31 minutes using a DC fast charging unit (maximum 200kW), and chances are, you will never have to go from empty to full to get where you are going. In most cases, people charge at home and at work, when their car is parked and they’re busy doing other things.
Electric Charging Options
EV owners are eager to share their experiences that demystify the rumors that it’s hard to access electric charging. With the growth of electric vehicles, it’s easier than ever to find Mercedes-Benz EV charging stations with more than 60,000 options nationwide. With level 2 chargers and DC fast charging capabilities with the new electric lineup from our Mercedes-Benz dealership in Sacramento, CA, you can reduce charging times and increase driving ranges with ease.
The MBUX infotainment system plays a key part in making electric charging simple. You can monitor your electric charge and even the charging speed directly on your touchscreen display within the interior of your Mercedes-Benz EQB, Mercedes-Benz EQS-Class sedan, or EQE. In addition, this system offers navigation to locate charging stations along your route and allows you to process payment before you even arrive at an electric charging station.
Electric car charging at home is easy, too. Most homes are equipped with a wall-mounted 240-volt outlet for home charging. However, the team at Mercedes-Benz of Sacramento can also help you coordinate installation through Qmerit for a Home Flex from Charpoint for even more electric charging options.
Benefits of Driving Electric
The move to electric vehicles is not just a trend. It’s a luxury when driving the Mercedes-Benz EQS-Class sedan, EQE, and Mercedes-Benz EQB. In addition to gaining a vehicle with exceptional style, performance, luxury, and technology, you’re also reducing your carbon footprint and minimizing noise pollution and fumes into the environment when driving an electric vehicle with electric charging capabilities.
If you’re looking for personal benefits, the savings on auto repairs alone are one to note. Electric cars require less maintenance than gas-powered vehicles from our Mercedes-Benz dealership in Sacramento, CA. For example, gas-powered vehicles require oil changes, muffler inspections and engine repairs on a regular basis, which is not necessary with an electric vehicle, such as the Mercedes-Benz EQB SUV.
