The electrical equivalent of the E-Class has been officially introduced! The debut of the Mercedes EQE, the younger brother of the flagship EQS. The new member of the EQ family, which features a low-sloped roofline, will outlast the Tesla Model S. Does it live up to the occasion?
Mercedes EQE Introduced! The day before the official debut at the Munich Motor Show, the 3D star manufacturer decided to show the world a new member of the EQ family. Does the Tesla Model S have anything to fear?
In terms of design, the new Mercedes EQE hasn’t changed much from the larger EQS. It will be difficult for an ordinary Kowalski to say which one, because both cars differ only in the design of LED headlights and taillights. Models, of course, differ in body size and wheelbase. The manufacturer assures that the dimensions of the new EQE are closer to the CLS than the E-Class, which can be seen better on paper.

When it comes to the interior, it’s hard not to mention the feature that dominates the EQE’s cabin. Of course, we are talking about an optional glass panel of over 55 inches, which includes three Hyperscreens. The car, like the EQS, uses the latest MBUX multimedia system, which can be written about for hours. You can read more about what this multimedia can do here.
