EQ family development – It has half the dimensions between the CLS (less than 3 cm) and the E-Class (more than 3 cm), and is the full electrical variant of the latter. At first glance, the new Mercedes EQE may look like a slightly reduced EQS at the Munich Motor Show, with the Star House, 4.95 meters long, 1.96 wide and 1.51 high. In fact, there are several points of contact with the “S-Class of Electric”: the same Eva 2 platform, an architecture designed to support cars powered by high-end battery, and integrates the same, blurry curve profile, side view, muzzle and tail seamlessly. However, the look changes, giving some hints of playfulness in the EQE, with a more aggressive front and a slightly higher waist, precisely deviating from the formal elegance of the star’s low environmental impact flag.
Super Technologica – Mercedes EQE’s superior technology remains unchanged and re-emphasized. A few examples? The chassis, like its suspension system S-Glass and EQS, is fitted with its rear steering axle, which reduces the turning circle from 19.7 to 12.5 by turning the wheels 10. Meters Many technologies are on board, available at the same hyperscreen request as EQS, with a panoramic screen that occupies the entire surface of the dashboard, up to 1.41 meters. The glass panel has three different displays: the instrument panel, the infotainment and finally, a monitor for travelers, where they 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 cation, but more environmentally friendly than traditional accumulators because cobalt, the most polluting material, is less than 10%. DC charging power is up to 170 kW, it takes 32 minutes to go from 10 to 80% of the battery capacity, while the 250 km limit 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: standard and custom equipment include automatic lane change, active emergency braking and active steering assistance with a system that adjusts the distance from the vehicle in front.
