Mercedes-Benz owners in the US who wish to perform an “Acceleration Increase” can purchase it from the company’s online shop. This may have sounded strange a few years ago. But the latest technology allows us the point where the capabilities of your car can be limited if you do not agree to a subscription, and this is made possible with software upgrades.
“Acceleration Increase” for EQE and EQS will add more torque and acceleration to your car and cost $1,200 per year. Customers will enjoy the sensation of a 0.8 to 1.0 second faster acceleration time from 0 to 60 mph.
This service is actually not much different from Tesla’s Improved Acceleration. Features that are similar in Tesla only cost a one-time fee and can be transferred with the vehicle to the new owner.
In addition to increased acceleration through a subscription offer, Mercedes-Benz has also offered rear driving in China as an annual EQS subscription.
