There will also be an electric equivalent for the E-Class: the Mercedes EQE. Now a Render was seen on a test drive for the first time. We have the latest pictures and tell you what you need to know about the manufacturer’s electric sedan.
Pretty much every volume model from the manufacturer will sooner or later have an electric sibling. So it was only logical that the company now also devotes itself to the development of an electric E-Class. Now the first pictures have emerged that show the EQE still heavily camouflaged during winter tests.
If you no longer want to be patient until you can also get the electric version of the E-Class, then get current Mercedes E-Class offers now and save an average of 7,000 euros.
Prices and the start of sales
Again and again, there were rumors that an EQE was being planned – rumors are over now because the Render pictures show a very realistic test car. An exact start of sales is not yet known, but the electric E-Class will not be on the market before 2022. What it will cost is also still in the stars.
Engines and driving behavior
We are currently assuming that the EQE will come as an all-wheel-drive and get an electric motor on each axle. After the market launch, there may also be a sporty version with a rear-wheel drive. What range and performance the EQE will be given is still speculation. It is assumed that the range will be greater than that of the EQC. However, the question of how far one should get on one battery charge remains unanswered for the time being.
Mercedes EQE Exterior design
In contrast to the currently only electric car from Mercedes, the brake light on the EQE test vehicle is under the rear window and not above it. Even compared to the EQS, the EQE has a normal trunk lid. As you can see in the picture below, the rear side windows are heavily camouflaged. This could indicate that we should expect a sharply rising beltline. We also suspect that the door handles can be extended
If you look at the EQE from the front, it doesn’t look too modern and sporty at first. But maybe it’s just the strong camouflage that makes the front look a little clumsy.
Mercedes EQE Interior and trunk
The only thing that can be said for sure is: it will be modern, comfortable and infotainment and assistance systems will be state-of-the-art. Since we don’t expect the EQE until 2022, it is not clear what exactly will then be part of the standard.
We can only be sure that everything will be of a high standard, as we were used to from Mercedes in the past.
