Mercedes-Benz presents new EQE at 2021 IAA Mobility


Presented at the 2021 IAA Mobility event, the all-new Mercedes-Benz EQE offers smaller dimensions and a possibly slightly more affordable price tag compared to the EQS. That said, some of the features that defined its bigger brother will no longer be standard.

The MBUX Hyperscreen, for example, is available but as an optional add-on. So are the Digital Light headlamp technology, automatic comfort doors, and the Burmester surround sound system.

"After the EQS, the EQE is already the second model on our platform for luxury- and premium-class electric vehicles. This speed of innovation shows the advantages of the scalable architecture: With the new EQE, we can quickly make the high-tech solutions of our electric flagship EQS available to a wider group of buyers. And our production flexibility reaches new heights with the EQE: at the Bremen plant, where the versions for the world market roll off the production line, four other models are already in production,” said Daimler AG and COO of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Markus Schäfer.

Outside, the Mercedes-Benz EQE looks pretty much like its older brother. At the front, you get the black panel grille which houses various sensors of the driving assistance systems such as the ultrasound, camera, and radar. LED high-performance headlamps flank the black panel grille while similarly striking taillamps highlight the EQE’s rear.


“The Mercedes EQE is the next all-purpose electric luxury sedan with the typical One-Bow-Signature Design creating fast lines and silhouette and through that a very aerodynamic and futuristic look. All of this makes the car more flamboyant and entertaining, more extraordinary, and defines the next level of luxury for the Mercedes-EQ brand,” explained Daimler Group Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener.

The Mercedes-Benz EQE will have comfort seats as standard. The carmaker used Neotex — which combines the look of nubuck leather and high-tech neoprene — on the seats as well as on the instrument panel and the armrest.


It will be equipped with the MBUX infotainment system that offers extensive functionalities which include Hey Mercedes, the brand’s in-car voice assistant.

Powering the Mercedes-Benz EQE is an all-electric drivetrain that sends power to the rear. The motors are fed by a 90kWh battery. Green electricity with Mercedes me Charge will also be standard in the Mercedes-Benz EQE.

“We reconcile innovation and emotionality with sustainability: with Green Charging, we are actively contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions. In addition, there are numerous intelligent functions that make everyday life easier for our customers. This includes Plug & Charge, for example — plugin and the EQE is charged without further authentication or registration,” said Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG Member of the Board, Britta Seeger.

According to Mercedes-Benz, the EQE will have a staggered launch which will begin mid-2022.
