Mercedes EQE: Do not call this the Mini-EQS

EQ family development – It has half the dimensions between the CLS (less than 3 cm) and the E-Class (less than 3 cm), and is the full electrical variant of the latter. At first glance, the new Mercedes EQE may look like the slightly reduced EQS at the Munich Motor Show, through the Star House, measuring 4.95 meters in length, 1.96 in width and 1.51 in height. In fact, there are several points of contact with the “S-Class of Electric”: the same Eva 2 platform, an architecture tentatively designed to support high-battery battery-powered cars, and the same, blurry curve profile, unobstructed muzzle and tail. However, the look is changing, which gives it some hint of sportiness in EQE, with a more aggressive front and slightly higher waist, precisely deviating from the formal elegance that characterizes the low-environmental impact flag of a three-pointed star.

Super Technologica – Mercedes EQE’s superior technology remains unchanged and re-emphasized. A few examples? The chassis, like its suspension system S-Class and EQS, is fitted to the rear steering axle, which, like its older sisters, reduces the turning circle from 19.7 to 12.5 by turning the wheels up to 10. The meter has several technologies on board, where the EQS is available at the same hyperscreen request, with a widescreen that occupies the entire surface of the dashboard, extending up to 1.41 meters. The glass panel has three different displays: the instrument panel, the infotainment and finally, the monitor for travelers who can watch a movie or browse the web. On both the hyperscreen and the standard screen, Mbux abandons traditional menus and manages the car’s key functions with artificial intelligence, although the default manual controls are naturally available to manage navigation, radio and phone.

Up to 660 km of autonomy – The Mercedes EQE will initially have two engines available, which are scheduled for global markets by mid-2022, although currently only some details have been released on the Mercedes EQE 350, which will feature a 292 hp and 530 Nm rear electric motor. In the future, 4 Matic versions equipped with a second electric motor on the front axle are also planned. 90kWh batteries are lithium-ion with nickel-cobalt-manganese catech, but cobalt is less than 10% of the most polluting material, because it is more environmentally friendly than conventional accumulators. DC charging power is up to 170 kW, it takes 32 minutes to go from 10 to 80% of the battery capacity, while a distance of 250 km can be reached in a quarter of an hour.

In the Wltp ring, according to the reported data Mercedes EQEIt can travel a maximum of 660 kilometers, thanks to a sophisticated power recovery system that can adjust the driver in four different ways during slowing stages. In conclusion, a few words about driver assistance systems: Fixed and custom equipment include active lane change, active emergency braking and active steering assistance with distance adjustment system from the front vehicle.
