Other Mercedes EVs such as a Mercedes-AMG sedan and a Mercedes-Maybach concept will debut alongside the EQE.
Mercedes had recently announced that it will become an electric-only brand by 2030 in all feasible markets.
Mercedes-Benz has been pumping out EVs after EVs for for the EQ brand with electric counter-parts for its established models. The luxury carmaker will be unveiling a few more at the upcoming Munich Motor Show (IAA Mobility), and among them will be the EV version of the E-Class, called the EQE.
The E-Class sedan is one of Mercedes’ best-selling cars over its many generations. With electric mobility poised to replace combustion engines in many regions by 2030, the EQE is expected to perform a similar role in the luxury business sedan segment. The first teaser image of the EQE is just a partial silhouette of its exterior, which suggests a sporty and athletic stance that’s different from the more luxurious EQS.
There’s also a teaser image of the EQE’s interior which seems to feature the same 55.5-inch MBUX hyperscreen that spans the width of the dashboard. This includes the touchscreen central display for the infotainment system, digital driver’s display and a display for the front passenger as well. The central console has a similar design to that seen in the EQS. Overall, its cabin is expected to offer more tech than the standard E-Class, with similar levels of luxury.
The EQE is expected to offer at least 500km of range with the choice of single- and dual-motor setups for rear wheel drive or all wheel drive variants. It will likely feature fast charging compatibility for upto 200kW to be able to fully recharge its battery in around 30 minutes.
Other electric Mercedes-Benz offerings that will be debuting alongside the EQE include a luxury sedan for the Mercedes-AMG range and a concept from Mercedes-Maybach. These are slated to be revealed in early September during the Munich Motor Show. The EQB seven-seater electric SUV that was unveiled in April 2021 will be making its European debut alongside the other EVs.
