About the EQE by Mercedes-EQ
The EQE is a unique blend of luxury and technology, a car that occupies a segment all its own. This all-electric executive sedan joins the rest of the Mercedes-EQ lineup in defining what electrified luxury means across the entire automotive world. As the name suggests, this is the electric equivalent of the gas-powered E-Class sedan. But the electric drivetrain gives you a more spacious interior than the standard car, and the quiet and calm inside is utterly unrivaled.
A wide variety of driving modes are available, including those tailored toward younger drivers or valets, and with over-the-air updates, more features and options are easily available. The Burmester 3D Sound System even allows personalization and additional soundscapes are available for download.
What the Critics Say
We’ll wait until we get to drive and test one on roads we know, but first impressions suggest the EQE 350+ with air suspension is a benchmark midsize luxury EV in terms of ride and refinement. It makes a Tesla Model S feel like an antique.” — MotorTrend
Like its larger stablemate, the EQE is a properly luxurious sedan with all the capability and tech expected in a car of this caliber. It’s a smooth-driving, smooth-riding EV with a dash of athleticism thrown into the mix. The EQE is every bit the electric E-Class it needs to be.” — Roadshow by CNET
EQE by Mercedes-EQ Features
Electrically Elevated Performance
Standard power on the EQE comes from an electric motor that sends 288 horsepower and 417lb-ft to the rear wheels. AIRMATIC air suspension with an Adaptive Dampening System means that you will enjoy unsurpassed levels of ride comfort and smoothness. Selectable driving modes include Comfort, Sport, Eco, and Individual; and rear-axle steering gives you maneuvering abilities that aren’t possible on similarly-sized cars.
At-home 240-volt stations can charge the 90kWh battery from 10% to 100% overnight, and DC fast charging can do the same in just 30 minutes. There is even an available self-parking system.
The blending of traditional luxury features with cutting-edge technology is what you would expect from Mercedes-EQ, and that is on full display inside the EQE. In fact, thanks to pre-entry climate control and ENERGIZING AIR CONTROL filtration, the luxury experience begins even before you step into the car. 64-color ambient LED lighting provides customizable illumination that adds to the luxury atmosphere of the EQE. And for lighting during the daytime, a panoramic sunroof comes standard. Optional four-zone climate control makes certain that all of your passengers are comfortable.
The EQE is defined by its technology-forward design, from the advanced electric drivetrain to the available automatic opening and closing front doors. Inside, there is no missing the available Hyperscreen, a single 56-inch glass piece that joins together all of the EQE’s displays into one surface. This includes 12.3-inch displays for both driver and passenger, as well as a giant 17.7-inch central touchscreen.
An available head-up display adds to the display options, and the powerful Augmented Reality Navigation System with Electric Intelligence can map routes that take into consideration factors such as weather, topography, and charging stations, to help you get the most of the electric range.
