We’ve had the Mercedes EQS in the competition for a while now, and while that is effectively an electric S-Class full of luxury, sometimes you want luxury with a little more sportiness – step forward the new EQE.
This is basically the electric E-Class – so it shares a huge amount with the EQS in terms of styling, but with this being the AMG Line it has a much sportier front end, 21-inch alloys and a suspension setup suited to more spirited driving.
Much like the EQS, this EQE350+ is RWD only, with a 90kWh usable battery which means it’s super efficient and promises a 356 mile WLTP range (that’s around 300 miles real world – very impressive). There’s also super fast charging available to top up on the road should you need to.
The interior is also taken from the EQS, including the option to have the enormous Hyperscreen, though given the sportier nature of this model and the fact that it’s the AMG Line Premium Plus, it comes with every option and a really nice dash like the one on the new SL Roadster, so we wouldn’t miss it.
This is a serious entry into the EV marketplace, Mercedes really are firing on all cylinders – or rather sparking on every motor contact!
And you could win the EQE350+ in this week’s BOTB Dream Car Competition!
