Mercedes EQE SUV: Discover the “Baby EQS SUV”

It’s not in Mondial, but it is anyway! Friends of Mercedes are showing off the brand’s new electric SUV in Paris. This is the Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV. It is the Rodin Museum where the manufacturer greets us next to the Mondial de l’Auto. After failing to exhibit at the show, Mercedes got the opportunity to hold a small event in Paris. This is an opportunity not only to show the full electric range, but above all to unveil the Mercedes EQE SUV. Bonus AMG version. Mercedes EQE SUV in terms of exterior: missing connections The only thing missing between the essential EQC SUV and the luxury EQS SUV is that. The Mercedes EQE SUV is, of course, the missing link within the EQ range. Simply put, it’s an “all-road” version that elevates the tech base and the look of an EQE sedan. A fluid line that matches the rest of the range is enough to make it a reduced EQS SUV. There is nothing new in style. Black panel on the front, LED strip on the back, flush handle, nothing sticking out. The body boasts optimized aerodynamics (Cd 0.25). Especially thanks to the bonnet that extends towards the windshield pillars. The EQE SUV mounts on a 19-22″ rim and can accommodate an optional running board. Guaranteed to look like an adventurer? I’ll send you a judge. Dimensions: 4.86 m long, 1.94 m wide, 1.69 m high. It is 9cm shorter, 3cm wider and 6cm higher than the EQE sedan. Do not forget about the wheelbase of 3.03 m for the Mercedes EQE SUV and 3.12 m for the sedan. Overall dimensions are very close to that of another German SUV, the Audi e-tron S. But the more curved design gives the EQE SUV a more impressive airy or chubby look. In Automobile Propre we check. It’s naturally more discreet and more urban than the larger EQS SUV. In that regard, it surprises us that the AMG version will be revealed at the same time. However, external changes are carefully maintained using the model’s inherently specific rims and badges. So it is the hood and interior that the Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV truly evolves. State-of-the-art interior: 1.40m hyperscreen! Mercedes prides itself on its touchscreen driving position. Witness the impressive Hyperscreen consisting of three screens almost invisibly separated for a display surface of 1.40m! The very high-tech dashboard is perfectly integrated into the luxurious and elegant interior surrounding it. The Mercedes EQE SUV in front of us has a white interior with brown leather upholstery. Overall, it’s a stylish, modern combination that manufacturers know how to do. All driver-accessible controls, including the steering wheel and center console, are touch-sensitive. A brief moment spent on board reveals a very promising back seat. Knee space and roof guards provide space and comfort for long trips. The trunk expands from 520 liters to 1,675 liters. Conversely, the Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV is a bit sportier. The AMG version plays timeless cards with a gray/black interior, Alcantara and carbon fiber vibes. A fairly classic sporty approach, but welcomes a new detail: sound. The brand has actually spent a long time presenting the audio quality onboard EQE SUVs. Sound/mixing engineer Derek Ali (MixedByAli for music lovers) joined us for an immersive sound demo. Dolby Atmos sound is great for listening to music, but in this case it also contributes to the driving experience. The AMG EQE SUV really deserves an artificial “sporty” sound designed specifically for speakers. With this, we understand the characteristic spatial sound of electric vehicles, but hints at their character and aggression. It’s not as intoxicating as the V8, but thanks for the effort. Whether this will make us smile or smile at the steering wheel of a Mercedes EQE SUV remains to be seen. Performance and range: up to 590 km Like the EQE and EQS, the Mercedes EQE SUV is based on the manufacturer’s EVA2 platform. The five engines are divided into standard and AMG versions. EQE 350+ (215 kW, 292 hp, 565 Nm) (rear wheel drive), EQE 350 4Matic (4 wheel drive) (765 Nm). The EQE 500 4Matic takes the next step to 300 kW (408 hp) for 858 Nm of torque. The AMG EQE 43 4Matic + produces 350 kW (476 hp) of 858 Nm of torque, producing 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds. Finally, the AMG EQE 53 4Matic+ limits the range to 505 kW (687 hp) and 950 Nm of torque. From there, with the AMG Dynamic Plus package, the shooting time from 0 to 100 is 3.5 seconds. The latter offers a maximum speed of 240 km/h instead of 210 against the 210 on the 43 4Matic +. So the impressive acceleration for the AMG variant stands out! I’m more curious about Mercedes’ focus on audio rather than performance. Especially since the AMG version comes standard with adaptive suspension and rear-wheel steering. Anyway, the five engines depend on a 90.6 kWh battery. This announces an autonomy (WLTP estimate) of 375 to 590 km depending on the version chosen. In terms of charging, it will be 11 kW as standard or 22 kW as an option. Fast charging is limited to 170 kW, allowing you to recover a range of 220 km in just 15 minutes. Two-way V2G charging is in the program but reserved for the Japanese market. The Mercedes EQE SUV also introduces the Electric Intelligence charging scheduler, which displays the adaptive range in real time. Estimate the cost of refills and downtime. The Mercedes EQE SUV, assembled at the Tuscaloosa plant in the US, has not yet been priced in France. Also read the Mercedes EQS test: Luxury Electric
