The new Mercedes me Charge function Plug & Charge makes it even easier to charge the EQS at suitable public charging stations: charging starts as soon as the charging cable is plugged in; no further authentication from the customer is required. The vehicle and the charging station communicate directly via the charging cable.
As before, Mercedes me Charge customers continue to benefit from the integrated payment function with automatic payment. The customer chooses the preferred payment method only once. Every charging process is then automatically debited – even abroad. The individual charging processes are clearly listed in a monthly invoice.
Information about a charging station’s compatibility with Plug & Charge is available on the navigation map of the EQS and in the Mercedes me App. It is also possible to search for specific, suitable charging stations. This convenient authentication method will initially be available at the IONITY rapid charging stations throughout Europe and at selected stations in the USA. Plug & Charge is the fourth access to charging after release via MBUX on the vehicle’s media display, the Mercedes me app and the Mercedes me Charge charging card.
