Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV

Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV & Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV

The Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV is due to have an electric WLTP driving range of up to 366 miles (for the EQE 350+), with power outputs ranging from 215 kW to 300 kW.

There will be three models, the EQE 350+ (rear-wheel drive), EQE 350 4MATIC and the EQE 500 4MATIC (both all-wheel drive). The EQE 500 4MATIC generates 858 Nm of torque. All models have a maximum charging rate of 170 kW, and the 4MATIC models can tow up to 1,800 kg (750 kg for the EQE 350+).

There will also be the Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV, the ‘first all-electric performance SUV from Mercedes-AMG’, featuring two electric motors with up to 505 kW (687 hp) of total output. The Mercedes-AMG EQE has fully variable all-wheel drive, AMG air suspension, rear-axle steering and AMG-specific roll stabilisation as standard. The Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV will be available as two models, the Mercedes-AMG EQE 43 4MATIC+ and the Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 4MATIC+.

AIRMATIC air suspension with ADS+ continuously adjustable damping is available on the EQE as an optional extra. To increase ground clearance, the vehicle level can be raised by up to 30 millimetres. In addition to the DYNAMIC SELECT programmes of ECO, COMFORT, SPORT and INDIVIDUAL, the EQE SUV models with 4MATIC also has the OFFROAD programme for off-road driving. A rear axle steering system with a maximum steering angle of 10 degrees is available as an option.

The EQE SUV offers the possibility of activating additional vehicle functions via over-the-air technology (OTA).

The optional MBUX Hyperscreen – three displays merged together stretching over the entire width of the dashboard (over 141 centimetres wide) – means that users don’t have to scroll through submenus or give voice commands.

Navigation with Electric Intelligence plans the fastest and most convenient route including charging stops, as well as reacting dynamically to traffic jams. It also calculates the estimated charging costs per charging stop. 

The EQE SUV has a heat pump as standard. The waste heat from the electric drive (inverter and electric motor) and also the high-voltage battery can be used to heat the interior. This reduces the draw on battery power for the heating system, so increasing the range.

There’s pre-entry climate control, with the THERMATIC automatic climate control system with two climate zones fitted as standard, while the THERMOTRONIC with four zones is available as an option.

Although the EQE SUV is an almost-silent electric car, it generates its own sound, “Serene Breeze”, a fourth soundscape, offering a relaxed and natural sound. A variety of soundscapes allows for an individual acoustic set-up. An optional interior driving sound is available which adjusts adaptively to the driving style.

Since June 2022, Mercedes me Charge has been offering three new charging tariffs in Europe that are tailored to individual driving performance. Mercedes me Charge S for occasional chargers, Mercedes me Charge M for normal chargers and Mercedes me Charge L for frequent chargers. With the introduction of the new, transparent tariff system, customers have access in part to fixed prices that apply regardless of the operator. With the Plug & Charge function, the EQE SUV can also be conveniently charged.

ENERGIZING AIR CONTROL Plus features a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter which cleans the incoming outside air.

The EQE SUV has an underbody with numerous aerodynamic details which contributes to Cd value from 0.255, which is impressive for an SUV.

Production of the EQE SUV will start at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Alabama in December with a nearby battery factory supplying the batteries for this model as well as for the EQS SUV.

All of Mercedes-Benz’s own passenger car and van plants worldwide have achieved CO2-neutral production this year.
