Mercedes gave members of the press a sneak peek at the new EQE earlier in the year. And it’s now time for the German marque to officially launch the car.
Built on the same platform as the EQS, the cars’ spec sheets and options list show a high degree of commonality. Visually, they also utilise the same sporty ‘purpose design’, with all the characteristic Mercedes-EQ elements, such as one-bow lines and the cab-forward design.
In fact, the car is only about 90 millimetres shorter than the EQS, with overall external dimensions similar to that of the current CLS. This also translates into superior interior space as compared to the present E-Class.But clever packaging isn’t the only key innovation in this new electrified E-Class for the New Age. Germanic smarts have also been poured into the drivetrain, allowing for unparalleled performance and efficiency figures, especially in its class.Combined, the electric motors have an output of 292 hp and 565 Nm of torque. The century sprint is done in just 6.4 seconds, so this luxury car is no slouch that’s for sure. This performance is the result of its 6-phase permanently excited synchronous motor in the rear axle, which is significantly more powerful than existing powertrain solutions on the market. The system is also able to regulate torque output to each individual axle up to 10,000 times per minute.
For those seeking even more performance, Mercedes has also unveiled an EQE 43 variant. It has 476 hp and 858 Nm of torque, and will do 0-100km/h in just 4.2 seconds. Do stay tuned for our follow-up article where we compare the technical differences between the EQE 350+ and the EQE 43!
