Without the subscription, the rear-wheels on the EQS will be limited to a 4.5-degree turn.
Mercedes-Benz EQS will be offering its rear-wheel steering feature on a subscription basis in some markets.
According to a media report, all Mercedes-Benz EQS electric sedans will get the hardware that enables the rear wheels to turn 10-degrees. However, in certain markets like Germany, customers will have to pay a subscription amount to unlock the feature. Without the subscription, the rear wheels on the EQS will be limited to a 4.5-degree turn.
Customers subscribing to the full 10-degree rear-axle steering will have to pay 489 Euros (US$ 571) per year. Customers can also choose to pay 1,169 Euros (US$ 1,376) upfront, to have the feature for a three-year period. Once the payment is made, an over-the-air update will unlock the feature for the subscription period.
Reports suggest that the only basic requirement is that the EQS must have the parking package installed, which includes the 360-degree camera.
