Mercedes unveils EQE with 410-mile range

7 Mercedes EQE

Mercedes has unveiled the EQE saloon, which joins its growing range of electric models.

The E-Class counterpart is based on Mercedes’ purpose-built electric vehicle (EV) platform and promises a range of up to 410 miles.

Multiple powertrain options are expected to be offered, but only the EQE 350 has been detailed so far. It uses a 90kWh battery and has a power output of 292PS.

The EQE is compatible with up to 170kW chargers, enabling an 80% charge in around half an hour.

Mercedes says the car “carries the concept of the business saloon into the future” and makes use of its latest powertrain and in-car technology.

It represents the second of three electric saloons from Mercedes-Benz, sitting alongside the larger EQS.

While smaller in footprint, the EQE shares many styling and interior details with its sibling such as the black panel front grille and full width LED lighting at the rear.

Mercedes will offer the EQE with the MBUX Hyperscreen infotainment system, which spans the width of the dashboard providing a display for the front passenger as well as a central control screen and digital instruments.

The EQE is billed for arrival in summer 2022, with prices likely to start at around £60,000.
