Mercedes-Benz EQE unveiled as luxury car maker increases EV model range
Slotting just beneath the EQS luxury sedan, the recently revealed EQE will expand the Mercedes-Benz EV range. Internationally, Mercedes-Benz offers the EQA, EQB, EQS and EQV. Like the E-Class executive sedan, the EQE will fill that gap in the electric range.
Like the larger EQS, the EQE features the futuristic, cab-forward design that is now common on Mercedes EQ models. Mercedes-Benz has said that it will offer alloy wheel sizes ranging from 19 to 21-inches. At the rear, a sporty spoiler sits atop a rear light bar. Overall, the styling resembles the EQS luxury sedan, albeit slightly smaller.
The EQE is slightly larger than its ICE contemporary, with a capacious 3 120 mm wheelbase. This, interestingly, is even longer than a standard length W221 S-Class. This has increased both the interior and boot space with notably more shoulder room, for example.
The Benz EQE has a 90 kWh battery which, says Mercedes, has a claimed range of up to 660 km. At launch, there will be two variants in the model range. The base model (called the EQE 350) will have a power output of 215 kW. Performance models with upwards of 500 kW are in the works, according to the manufacturer.
