2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV To Be Launched Tomorrow

Mercedes-Benz is all geared up to launch the latest addition of its EV portfolio in India, the EQE SUV. This will be the third model in Mercedes-Benz India’s EV range, following the EQS sedan and the EQB SUV. So without further ado, here’s what you can expect from Mercedes-Benz’ next electric launch.

Design cues of the EQE SUV follow other EQ models closely, like the rounded surfaces and coupe-like silhouette which will make the car sleeker. Up front, the black panel grille that integrates the LED light strip features a star-like pattern. From the side, the 2023 EQE SUV features a clean profile with flush-fitting door handles and aerodynamic alloy wheel design that can be as large as 21 inches. On the back, there’s a connected LED light strip that looks upmarket and modern.

Internationally, the EQE SUV is sold in multiple powertrain options but all draw their power from a 90.6kWh battery pack. Globally, the car is offered in three broad trims : the 350+, the 350 4MATIC and the 500 4MATIC with single-motor or dual-motor setup, depending on the variant. Below is the table of each trim with its power and EPA-claimed range figures:

 All of the above variants support DC fast charging and the batteries can be recharged from 10-80 percent in 32 minutes using a 170kW charger. The EQE SUV also gets AMG variants, likely to make their way to India post the standard model’s launch.

Inside, the EQE SUV will be featuring the MBUX Hyperscreen, comprising three different screens spanning its width, including a 12.3-inch touchscreen for the front passenger, much like the EQS sedan. Other cabin highlights will include a Burmester sound system, a leather-free interior, and creature comforts such as powered front seats, four-zone climate control, and a panoramic sunroof.

As for the usual safety which includes multiple airbags, the EQE SUV will feature a 360-degree camera, and ABS with EBD along with a host of driving assistance tech like lane keep assist, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and even parking assist.
