The progressive electrification of the Mercedes range is continuing and will give rise, at the beginning of September, to a whole wave of world premieres. Among them, the latest model in the EQ range, little sister of the EQS limousine and electric counterpart of the E-Class.
In addition to the first public appearance of the final version of the great EQS that we have already been able to approach, the Munich show will bring its share of electrification at Mercedes. At various levels: on this occasion we should discover the PHEV variants of the new C-Class, probably a new electric concept, and this EQE of which a first image as a teaser has just surfaced.
The EQE, of size equivalent to a Class E, will be based on a shortened version of the EQS platform (a little less than 5 meters long, in principle). It will thus place itself as a frontal rival to the Tesla Model S (4.97 m), the EQS looking at a good part of what rolls along its 5.22 m! From the latter, the EQE will partly take over the interior layout, in particular the spectacular MBUX “Hyperscreen” screen, huge digital panel approximately 1.40 m wide. The system will however be simplified, and optional on the EQE.
Rather an electric CLS
Judging by that first glimpse of the rear three-quarter, the silhouette of the EQE would be more like a “4-door coupe” rather than a classic notchback sedan. Its profile would therefore be similar to a CLS, a little higher up, with marked rear wheel arches. Curious, but certainly favorable to the Cx.
As for batteries and engines, no data has yet been communicated. As the specific platform is similar to that of the EQS, the EQE should be able to benefit from comparable performance. The 90 kWh battery (entry level of the EQS) could thus ensure the top of the range of the EQE, by offering a autonomy estimated at just over 600 km. The Access model should be content with a 72 kWh battery.
