Electric charging has evolved over the years and Mercedes-Benz EV charging is easier than ever. In addition to electric car charging at home, you also have access to nationwide public charging stations to quickly zap up the electric motor and battery pack of your Mercedes-Benz EQB or Mercedes-Benz EQS-Class sedan. The team at Mercedes-Benz of Pleasanton is eager to share tips on electric charging while also showcasing our electric vehicle lineup at our Mercedes-Benz dealership in Pleasanton, CA.
New Mercedes-Benz All-Electric Lineup
Before diving into the ease of Mercedes-Benz EV charging, it’s important to know the benefits of buying or leasing a member of our Mercedes-Benz electric vehicle lineup. At our Mercedes-Benz dealership in Pleasanton, CA, we can’t wait to showcase the bold features of the Mercedes-Benz EQB. For the 2023 model year, this electric SUV features a single electric motor that is paired with a lithium-ion traction battery pack with a 9.6-kW onboard charger and 70.5-kWh capacity to produce 284 lb-ft of torque and 188 horsepower.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS-Class sedan brings explosive all-electric power to the road with 305 miles of range, an AMG® line and level 2 charging. Also included in the electric vehicle (EV) lineup at Mercedes-Benz of Pleasanton, you’ll find the EQS SUV and the EQE SUV that rivals Tesla models.
Simplified Electric Car Charging at Home
At our Mercedes-Benz dealership in Pleasanton, CA, we can’t wait to share the ease of electric charging when buying or leasing a Mercedes-Benz EQS-Class sedan or the Mercedes-Benz EQB SUV. Primarily, all electric vehicles require electric charging with either a Level 1, Level 2 charger or a Level 3 charger. Equipping your home with the electrical services and wall-mounted electric charging units you need is easy. You can then enjoy a good night’s sleep or stop in for lunch to zap up the battery quickly.
EV owners find that charging times may vary with electric car charging at home but the convenience is exceptional, especially with home charging DC fast charging units that are easy to install. For example, QMerit offers easy installation of electric charging stations in Pleasanton, CA. In addition, many new homes already come with the setup you need for electric car charging at home.
The Ease of Electric Charging On the Go
What makes the all-electric Mercedes-Benz lineup even more impressive is that you have the advanced technology you need to monitor your miles of range, charging speed and highway estimates. The MBUX infotainment system, that comes standard with the Mercedes-Benz EQB and Mercedes-Benz EQS-Class sedan, keeps you on top of when you should stop for a quick charge and even helps you locate nationwide public charging stations along your route.
This technology, including the Mercedes Me Charge suite, helps you to plan long road trips in your electric vehicle without worry of running out of miles of range. In fact, the advanced navigation system factors in where to stop at public charging stations and estimates the time you’ll need for a quick charge. Electric charging on the go continues to improve and Mercedes-Benz EV charging options are leading the way with complimentary DC fast charging sessions for a limited time via Electrify America.

The ChargePoint Homeflex NEMA 6-50 is the Level 2 at home charging unit recommended by Mercedes-Benz
2) What’s the difference between Level 1, Level 2 & Level 3 (DCFC) charging? ▼
Level 1 is charging at home with a 120-volt circuit (i.e., using 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.
3) How long does it take to get my charger? ▼
Currently about 2-3 weeks once an order to placed with ChargePoint.

5) 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.
6) Are Mercedes-Benz All-Electric vehicles safe? ▼
All Mercedes-Benz All-Electric vehicles undergo rigorous safety testing, just like their gas-powered counterparts. They are tested in extreme heat and cold, are extensively crash-tested, and are built with inherent safety measures to minimize risk in the event of a collision.
7) Are Mercedes-Benz-All Electric vehicles only for local driving or can I take it on a road trip? ▼
The common myth is that electric vehicles can only go a short distance. What’s important to remember is that you can typically do all your daily driving (and more) on just one charge. But if you do want to road trip, Mercedes-Benz All-Electric has partnered with Electrify America for two years of complimentary 30-minute charging sessions. Electrify America has a nationwide network of more than 2,600 DC Fast Chargers and are expanding more as time goes on.

8) Do electric vehicles perform as well as gas-powered vehicles? ▼
Yes. In fact, they perform even better in areas like torque and acceleration. Because the drive system is electric as opposed to mechanical, the reaction is instant, without the lag of a typical gas engine. At the same time, electric vehicles are quieter and smoother for a more pleasant driving experience.
