True to your plan of action, Mercedes It invests a lot in electrification. This strategy contemplates two axes with the development of a rechargeable hybrid range (petrol or diesel) whose latest models, specifically the C300e class they are capable of traveling 100 km in fully electric mode, which is unique in the market, but also the establishment of a 100% electric autonomy. In parallel to the thermal offer, it will soon include as many other vehicles. There are already no less than six vehicles with theEQAIJCAIEQCthe EQSthe EQT, the EQV to which this EQE must be added and soon the SUV version of theEQS. An SUV version of our EQE has already been announced and there will also be a 100% electric G-Class, derived from the EQG concept presented at the Munich show. There will certainly be something for just about everyone.

Video test – Mercedes EQE (2022): mini EQS

Discovered during the meeting in Munich, this EQE is undeniably reminiscent of a reduced EQS.

The grille is identical to that of the EQS.

Stylistically, the affiliation is obvious. We discover a sedan with particularly flowing lines that give the impression that the designers drew it with a single pencil stroke. The full grille is stamped with the star logo and is surrounded by slim headlights similar to those of the grand tourer. The door handles are flush and the stern is covered in a light strip. The set is successful and allows the EQE, like the EQS, to be particularly efficient and effective in terms of aerodynamics.

The board shows a great modernity with a nice place of digital.

Inside, we find without too much surprise the dashboard of the EQS. So of course this EQE can only receive the famous hyper display in the AMG version. This impressive 1.40 m wide digital panel consists of three screens: the digital instrument panel facing the driver, the traditional central screen and another facing the front passengers. Just as spectacular, you will have to pay the tidy sum of €8,000. Don’t think as far as stock, the EQE makes a crossover of technology.

The digital instrumentation measures 12.3 inches.

Quite the contrary, because it is equipped with a very modern dashboard with 12.3-inch digital instrumentation that can be relayed by a head-up display. It sits next to a 12.8-inch multimedia display that works particularly smoothly and quickly. Beyond its technological content, it is the care of the materials that stands out, in particular in our test model, the quilted leather, as well as an original and pleasant treatment of the dashboard. Mercedes thus confirms its know-how in this field. The practical aspects are not forgotten, as evidenced by the enormous storage space located under the floating center console.

The rear habitability is real.

With the 430-litre boot, boot capacity is disappointing.

At 4.95m long, the EQE is an imposing sedan. It is logically smaller than the EQS due to the shorter front and rear overhangs. The huge wheelbase of the EQS (3.12m) remains unchanged, allowing the EQE to offer particularly generous rear space, especially in terms of legroom. The roof protection is less spectacular but sufficient for passengers over 1.80 m. Finally, it is the trunk that disappoints with a capacity of only 430 liters, which is not much, especially since it can be accessed through a trunk and not through a rear door as in the EQS.
