The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE is now available to buy in Europe
The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE sedan is now on sale in Europe. The electric E-Class model, which is set to rival the Tesla Model S, will start shipping to dealers in April. There are two trim levels available, the EQE 350+ and the AMG EQE 43 4MATIC.
The base model, the EQE 350+, has a 210 kW (286 hp) rear-mounted motor with 530 Nm of torque. The vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 100 kph) in 5.6 seconds, with a top speed of 130 mph (210 kph).
The Mercedes-AMG EQE 43 4MATIC has a dual-motor 350 kW (469 hp) powertrain that can deliver up to 858 Nm of torque. The car’s top speed is identical to the base model; however, the vehicle accelerates faster, reaching 60 mph (100 kph) in 4.2 seconds.
Both trims are fitted with a 90.6 kWh battery, which delivers up to 410 miles (660 km) of range. The battery is capable of 170 kW fast charging, with a 10% to 80% charge achieved in 35 minutes. A 7.7 kW charger would gain the same charge in 9.5 hours.
The E-Class vehicles are based on Mercedes’ luxury EVA2 electric platform, with optional add-ons including the MBUX Hyperscreen and automatic comfort doors. The EQE 350+ and the AMG EQE 43 4MATIC are now available in Europe for ~US$77,877 (€70,626) and ~US$114,487 (€103,827), respectively.
