Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the EQE, the latest addition to its EQ line-up and second model based on the premium-class electric architecture (EVA2).
Like its EQ stablemates, the EQE’s “sporty” exterior styling features numerous EQ-specific elements, such as one-bow lines and a cab-forward design. The sculpted surfaces follow Mercedes’ “Sensual Purity” design language, while the rear end provides a dynamic accent with a sharp spoiler. The EQE is available with the option of 19- to 21-inch wheels.
According to the German marque, the EQE’s size is comparable to that of the CLS. The interior measurements, Mercedes says, “exceed” that of the W213-generation E-Class.

Compared to the current E, the EQS offers 27 mm more shoulder room up front. The seating position, meanwhile, is 65 mm higher. The EQE has a claimed luggage capacity of 430 litres.
The business saloon will offer the latest-generation of the Three-pointed Star brand’s driver assistance systems, which now features an additional function in the shape of micro-sleep warning setup.

In conjunction with the optional MBUX Hyperscreen, the Attention Assist system analyses the driver’s eyelid movements using a camera in the digital instrument display.
The EQE is endowed with a 90 kWh battery which, depending on the onboard equipment and configuration, allows for a claimed electric range of “up to” 660 km. At launch, Mercedes will offer the choice of two derivatives – the EQE 350, which produces 215 kW, and a second model, which Mercedes is yet to confirm.
