Mercedes-Benz EQE: Test: Cheaper than EQS, but not bad

These pages were translated using AI and machine learning before being reviewed by human editors in their native language. (Pocket-lint) – Mercedes-Benz is gradually adding all-electric models, proving that if you want a luxury sedan, the gorgeous top-spec EQS ​​model is the icing on the cake. However, the price tag on this car starts at just under £100,000, and with all the trimmings added it could be inflated beyond that figure. By comparison, the Mercedes-Benz EQE looks cheap, with a price tag of £89,345 even in the top-spec 350+ Exclusive Luxury trim. It’s also a smaller sedan than the EQS, so if you’re short on driving space and want a lot of luxury, you’ll find the EQE more complete. It has a good 90kWh battery and an advertised range of 394 miles on a full charge, performance is well addressed thanks to 288bhp and 565Nm of torque if you want to hit the highway. Despite its size and weight, the EQE boasts plenty of liveliness, with a 0-62 mph time of 6.4 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. Not bad for a high-end heavyweight like this. POCKET-LINT VIDEO OF THE DAY OUR QUICK REVIEW If you’ve ever driven a Tesla Model S, you know how little hit or miss the build quality is. The Tesla may entice you with its range, but the EQE has the range to match Fremont’s best cars, and it seems to be much better built. The design isn’t as exciting as the EQE’s ride, but it looks good enough, and the 20-inch, five-spoke wheels on this model add shine to the Obsidian Black metallic paint. , a great touchscreen and a variety of interest-generating tech gizmos. The touchscreen option poses some challenges for everyday use, along with navigation tools that can be problematic when you’re alone in the car in the dark. And, as mentioned, ambient lighting is very nice, but can also be problematic in certain driving scenarios. Like all tech-heavy cars, the Mercedes-Benz EQE will need to spend some time in the digital cogs before it can feel completely comfortable. It has all the potential. But once you get it all figured out, this car is just as cool as its big brother, the EQS. Mercedes-Benz EQE Review: Cheaper than the EQS, but not so good 5 stars – Pocket-lint Editors’ Choice Pro A mountain of smart tech that’s surprisingly comfortable Cons All tech can be confusing. It looks a bit harmless. Absolutely Cute Design Not everyone wants to drive around in an expensive car that screams “Look at me!”, so some people might like the Mercedes-Benz EQE. The full model drive here, the Mercedes-Benz EQE 350+ Exclusive Luxury Edition, is also quite discreet. Reviewers might suggest it looks a bit pedestrian, but its smooth lines draw you in the more time you spend in company. Shiny lovers won’t be completely disappointed with the large chrome door handles sticking out when you unlock the car. It lights up when it gets dark, and the bathroom lights are impressive in resolution and add another twinkle. The fun of the night is also on the front end. Accompanied by small fireworks that illuminate the headlight area as you approach the car, get into it and press the “start” button. This reasonably understated angle of luxury is also very effective in everyday situations where more people are sending you out at intersections than the louder models in the MB range. That’s a definite plus. You also get a rather utilitarian car with large wide-open doors and a great 430-litre trunk tucked under the lid rather than the tailgate, albeit with slightly worse rear-seat headroom. There’s a cable inside if you need to plug it into a charger, but ideally you’d want to find a quick outlet that can get you to 10-80% in about 30 minutes if you can find one. Brilliant Interior Oddly enough, this could be a personal matter. The EQE’s wooden dashboard is reminiscent of the elegant speedboats that frequent Italian lakes. You might think it’s a bit different than a digital touchscreen, but the contrast is refreshing. The shiny chrome circular air vents do just as well, as do the other metal trim found throughout the EQE’s interior, especially with the black/space gray nappa leather seats. The latter is deliciously comfortable both front and rear. There are other neat design touches too, like a curved center console with similarly styled openings that hide odd cup holders and power outlets. Behind that console, the center compartment opening is also superb, allowing rear seat occupants to easily dig into the Haribo. In fact, everything about the EQE’s interior has been done with comfort and convenience in mind. Mercedes-Benz’s typical seat adjustment options on the door panels complete the package, along with heating or cooling options in luxury vehicles. History of practical technology The EQE has fewer screens than the EQS with a hyperscreen taking up most of the dashboard, but it may come later on in this car for the UK market. Instead, in front of the steering wheel is a 12.8-inch central touchscreen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. As a result, the passenger in the passenger seat loses their own little screen real estate, but they don’t really notice the tech’s rear fascination. On the other hand, it has less glare, which is great especially when driving. If you spend some time exploring the MBUX system hiding within the center display and its cluster (complete with a great heads-up display), you’ll find plenty of interesting stuff. While it’s true that some aren’t as easy to use on the go, there are many tech enthusiasts who don’t want to venture into the world of control, voice, and all that entails. The driving aids are also solid, although the pocket-lint smart auto headlights aren’t as smart as I’d like when selecting high beam. Going back to manual control has definitely reduced the number of flashes irritating oncoming drivers. Again, I tend to make the most of my EQE skills when I have the time, so maybe this one too? Driving, Range and Charging Once you’ve got a seat in the nice driver’s seat and tuned the tech just the way you like it, the ride is generally excellent. In practice, the effect is almost identical to that found in the bulkier EQS. However, as mentioned above, EQE’s dashboard has the advantage of being less affected by digital screen reflections. The overall effect of riding the Pocket-lint EQE is also quite soothing. There are three driving modes, including an alluring sport mode, but the most used is the comfort mode. It’s great for battery use, but if you misjudge the essential trip to the charger, I don’t feel the need to change much as I have the Echo and the car cruises so nicely. The cockpit is also very nice. There are endless options lurking in the pole-mounted gear stick, the paddles for play, the dashboard’s digital display or the chunky high-resolution touchscreen. The Mercedes-Benz EQE 350+ is generally great to drive, but there are a few annoying little things. As is the case with many electric cars, acceleration is smooth, as is braking, thanks to powerful but sponge brakes that work great. On the other hand, if you pull the regeneration tab located on the front of the steering wheel, you can see that the effect is quite harsh. It works, but seems a bit at odds with all the other smoothness that comes with this car. The Best Black Friday Deals in America 2022: What We Expect by Chris Hall Updated 11/04/2022 Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday are the biggest selling events of the year and we’re sure there will be plenty of discounts. If you can play around with the infotainment system settings, one easy fix is ​​the ambient lighting. It’s so good that I don’t normally want to touch it. However, driving the car in the dark on a dark, foggy night with the A30, subtle tonal reflections tended to obstruct vision in the exterior mirrors. Also, the round vents at the end of the dashboard are reflective. If you’ve had the car for a long time, you can assume things can be sorted out a bit better. The way it turns off when you accidentally cross the white line and turns red on one side is pretty cool. Another thing to watch out for with the Pocket-lint EQE is reverse. Because, like the EQS, the view out the rear window is limited to a minimum. The rear-view camera technology is great and solves this problem, but the car is quite heavy and will take a little longer to squeeze into Tesco’s Pod Point charging bay. Summary Mercedes-Benz’s all-electric range is ever-expanding, and anyone who loves but can’t afford an EQS will want to consider it. It has the same features as a fancy luxury car, but at a lower cost. The exterior may not attract attention, but the Mercedes-Benz EQE 350+ Exclusive Luxury model we drove packs a ton of tech and delivers a sublime ride. Actual range could probably be a bit better, but the powertrain is good enough to get you to most places without too much trouble. An exceptional level of comfort will leave you fresh and relaxed upon arrival. Written by Rob Climo. Edited by Chris Hall.
