Even though everyone was touting the Mercedes-Benz EQS as the German automaker’s immediate rival to the Tesla Model S, Mercedes itself states this model new EQE is essentially it. The EQE was just unveiled at IAA 2021, the German motor clearly show, and we had been there to look at it out.
On initially perception, it seems to be very substantially equivalent to the EQE. On the other hand, the nearer you look, the additional distinctions you get started to see, like the facet profile. The bigger EQS is basically a hatchback, and only the EQE is a accurate sedan, but if you glimpse at them from the facet, it’s truly the latter that has the shorter and stubbier rear close.
The style and design of the front fascia is a little bit various too. If you see possibly an EQE or EQS in isolation, it might not be straight away evident which one particular is which, but at the motor present they ended up parked proper upcoming to a single yet another and this aided by making the distinctions extra noticeable. In general, in terms of the way they look, Mercedes opted for pretty little differentiation, and the exact goes for the inside.
The EQE is an in general smaller sized car than the EQS and its battery pack is also lesser. It drops from 107.8 kWh in the EQS to 90.6 kWh in the EQE. This drops the claimed WLTP range from a maximum of 784 km (487 miles) to 660 km (410 miles) and the EQE is only presently offered as the one-motor 350 design.
For a additional in-depth seem at the EQE, verify out the movie that I shot at IAA where I make my way all around the car pointing out its a variety of functions and variances to the greater EQS. The gallery embedded in this post is of the exact EQE at IAA.
