Mercedes teases the EQE, the next electric sedan of the premium car maker. The photo teaser follows the one of the Maybach EQS electric SUV of last week.
The Daimler CEO, Ola Kallenius, promised an electric variant for every model before 2025. And it is pretty clear that he meant it. Every word of it. So here comes the EQE electric sedan.
The darkened photo shows the rear of the future model. LED taillights with a new light signature are connected by an LED strip that splits the tailgate in two, emphasizing the width of the car. “An electric business saloon”, that “will be “sporty and comfortable”, the premium car maker pledges.
Prominent fenders and the coupe-like descending rear glass and roofline confirm the athletic nature of the future EQE. The Mercedes representatives state that he EQE will feature a “one-bow bodyshell design”. The interior will borrow the features of the EQS, with which the new model shares the platform.
The launch version will be powered by two engines, one on each axle. Together they will be good for 400 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque. The 90- kWh battery will store enough energy for a range up to 650 kilometers. 2022 will bring the debut of a rear-wheel drive variant.
The curtain will drop off the EQE this fall at the Munich Motor Show, the event that replaces the Frankfurt cars display, taking place between 7-12 of September.
The Mercedes EQE will not be the only premiere in Munich
Mercedes is also working on the “first battery-electric luxury saloon from Mercedes-AMG”. It is most likely the EQS performance variant. It “is the brand’s clear commitment to fuse fully electric models with characteristic AMG DNA”, Mercedes reveals.
There will also be the seven-seat EQB SUV, the electric variant of the GLB, premiering in Munich this upcoming September.
The already teased Mercedes-Maybach EQS will keep them company.
The Affalterbach-based company will also reveal the first performance hybrid with the E Performance logo. It will most likely be the Mercedes-AMG GT73 4-doors.
A smart crossover, the first model since Geely acquired the brand, will also be on display in Germany.
