The new EQE SUV is the all-round EV model for both Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG. It was revealed during a digital premier that was broadcast globally last week.

The EQE SUV is the multi-purpose variant of the EQE business sedan. It has been designed to accommodate a variety of drivetrain options, with the choice of all-wheel or rear-wheel drive.

According to Mercedes, the adaptable interior – made possible by the electric drivetrain – and the performance of two electric motors make this a stand-out addition to its all-electric range.

And while Mercedes handled most of the development, the AMG engineers added rear-axle steering and a unique AMG sound pack.

The Mercedes-AMG range consists of two models: Entry-level Mercedes-AMG EQE 43 4MATIC (350 kW and 858 Nm) and the sportier Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 4MATIC+ with 505 kW and 1 000 Nm.

The Mercedes-Benz versions of the EQE will consist of three models with power ranging from 215 kW to 300 kW. Depending on the vehicle equipment and configuration, the European vehicles can achieve ranges of up 590 kilometres.
