Mercedes-Benz in an attempt to unveil their electric range of future cars has also taken the covers off the new EQE. The EQE will be shown for the first time at the IAA exhibition in Munich in September. In mid-2022, a staggered worldwide rollout will take place. Bremen will produce for the global market, while Beijing will produce for the Chinese market.

Following the luxurious EQS saloon, the EQE is the second vehicle to be built on the premium-class electric architecture (EVA2). The EQE has a dynamic "purpose design" with all of the Mercedes-EQ hallmarks, such as one-bow lines and a cab-forward design. The extensively sculpted surfaces, minimal joints, and seamless design represent the sensual purity.

The front end and overhangs are kept short, while a sharp rear spoiler adds a dynamic element to the rear. The 19- to 21-inch wheels, which are flush with the body's outside border, and a noticeable muscular shoulder portion give the EQE an athletic appearance.

A 90.6 kWh battery pack powers the new Mercedes-Benz EQE electric car, which is driven by a single electric motor at the back (RWD). The electric motor produces 290PS and 530 Nm of torque. Mercedes-Benz is expected to release a 4MATIC version at a later date. The EQE electric car is also claimed to have a range of 660 kilometres on a single charge.

The EQE is smaller than the EQS. It is equivalent to the CLS in terms of exterior dimensions. It, too, lacks a tailgate but does have a fixed back window and a boot lid. The interior design and equipment are obviously based on the EQS, with optional additions like MBUX Hyperscreen, automatic comfort doors (front), and rear-axle steering. Mercedes-Benz claims the EQE is among the finest in its class in terms of noise and vibration comfort (NVH).

The boot capacity of the EQE is 430 litres.

The "Hyperscreen" infotainment system looks to be the major emphasis. A high-definition screen covering the dashboard with a 16.1-inch width is included. This technology is characterised by Mercedes as having "zero layer" access, which eliminates the need to cycle through several menus, which is something you can't afford to do while driving. Front-seat passengers get their own 12.3-inch display, which is meant to dim automatically when there is "dynamic content," so the driver isn't distracted.

Numerous driver support features are included in the newest generation of driving assistance systems. The extra microsleep warning from ATTENTION ASSIST is one of the new features. It uses a camera in the driver display to analyse the driver's eyelid movements. In an understandable full-screen perspective, the assistance display within the driver's display illustrates the working of the driving aid systems.

The Mercedes-Benz EQE is expected to make its way to the Indian market in the future. As to how much it will cost to own one, is an answer that only the future beholds
