Mercedes-Benz will launch an E-Class equivalent electric sedan by the end of 2022. The Mercedes-Benz EQE will compete with the Tesla Model S and will pack 400 hp and a range of up to 600 kilometers.
Mercedes-Benz gave birth to the EQ family, a sub-brand that will include only electric models. The first product launched under the umbrella of the EQ family was the EQC SUV. According to the plans of the German manufacturer, by the end of 2022, the range of electric vehicles would be made up of six models.
The second model of the EQ family will be EQV. The pre-series version of the electric V-Class has already been presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and the production version will be released by the end of the current year. Also in 2019, the Germans will present the EQB, the electric version of the new GLB SUV.
According to sources close to the company, this year we could also get acquainted with EQA, an electric model based on the A-Class hatchback and derived from the concept with the same name.
The first Mercedes-Benz electric model developed on an entirely new and special architecture will be the EQS, an electric S-Class equivalent planned for launch in 2021. The Germans are preparing the MEA2 platform specifically for their next range of electric cars.
Also on the list is the EQE, a large electric sedan ready to fight with the Tesla Model S. The first information on this model appeared in a document published by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China.
V295 is the internal name used for EQE, and according to the first information, the model will be powered by two electric motors, one on each axle. The total power output of the electric system will be about 400 horsepower, while the battery pack would provide enough power for up to 600 kilometers of autonomy. The presentation of the future Mercedes EQE would take place by the end of 2022.
