Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the all-new EQE SUV. Basically, this is the SUV version of the EQE sedan, the electric alter ego of the current E-Class. As a result, the EQE SUV is an alter ego of the GLE model.
Just like any other new electric from Mercedes, the EQE SUV uses the Eva2 platform, which means a big battery (90,6 kWh) and some special electric motors.
The SUV will be offered in five versions. The entry one is called EQE 350+ SUV and has one electric motor with 292 horsepower. The next one is EQE 350 4Matic SUV, which has two electric motors – one for each axle – which can deliver also 292 HP, but 564 pound-feet of torque (compared to 417 pound-feed in the entry version). The last “civilian” EQE SUV is called EQE 500 4Matic SUV and the electric motors can deliver 536 horsepower and 633 lb-ft.
After that you’ll have the AMG line-up. Two variants. The AMG 43 which can offer 492 HP, and the AMG 53 which is good for 677 HP if you’ll pick the AMG Performance Package.
The maximum range of the EQE SUV is clocked at around 590 kilometers for the most efficient variant. The top AMG will travel 470 kilometers with one charge, according to WLTP tests.
