Mercedes-Benz has revealed the new EQE, all-electric, sedan at the Munich Motor Show 2021. The global launch has been scheduled for mid-2022 and Mercedes-Benz will manufacture it at its Bremen facility.
The production model of the Mercedes-Benz EQE has been showcased. The new electric sedan will be positioned just below the brand’s flagship electric sedan, the EQS. The styling is very close to the EQS but the dimensions of the EQE are relatively smaller. The wheelbase of the EQE is 3,120mm which is 90mm lesser than that of the EQS. The wheel sizes on offer range between 19-inch and 22-inch. The EQE also gets a fixed glass on the boot lid arguably making it a notchback.
Unlike the EQS, the EQE does not get Mercedes-Benz’s MBUX Hyperscreen as standard. Buyers will have to option it for an added cost. Compared to the outgoing E-Class, the EQE has a larger cabin. The cabin also comes equipped with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter. Mercedes-Benz has added four-wheel steering to the mix as well.
Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that the EQE will be launched with a higher output – close to 670bhp – variant. For now, the brand will only offer the EQE 350. That gets a 90kWh battery pack and has a claimed range of 660km.
The EQE gets electric motors on the rear axles, and 4Matic models – which will be introduced later – will come equipped with motors on both axles. Currently, the power output is marked at 288bhp and the 4Matic (all-wheel-drive) models are likely to see a bump in the overall output.
For the global markets, the EQE will be produced at Mercedes-Benz’s Bremen facility and the launch will take place in mid-2022.
