The 2024 Mercedes EQE class epitomes all-electric superior luxury and high performance in the sedan and SUV category. The 2024 Mercedes, including the EQE 350 and EQE 500, is a futuristic version of the gas-powered E-class with more advanced tech and powertrain options.
If you’re looking for a luxury vehicle with a long-range battery and power, look no further than the EQE 350 and EQE 500. Available as an SUV or Sedan, the price point begins at $76,050 and goes up to $94,650, depending on the model and options.
Models/Power/Price: The 2024 Mercedes EQE offers nine trim levels, not including the AMG version. The EQE 350 ranges from $76,050 TO $84,740 and is equipped with a single rear-mounted electric motor that produces 288 horsepower at 391 lb.-ft. of torque. The EQE 500 takes it to another level with dual electric motors on each axle, producing 402 horsepower at 564 lb.-ft. of torque, ranging from $87,050 to $94,650 MSRP.
The EQE 350 and EQE 500 batteries produce ranges of 400 miles for the EQE 350 and 380 miles for the EQE 500 model, which is almost a round trip (460 miles) between Washington, D.C., and New York. This significant extension of battery range on local and long-distance travel eliminates range anxiety. However, if you need to recharge the battery, it takes less than 30 minutes on a fast charger.
In addition, the battery range can be extended while driving with the EQE’s advanced regenerative braking system. While braking is required on most EVs and hybrids to recharge the battery, the EQE converts kinetic energy into electric energy each time you take your foot off the accelerator.
Although the EQE has no engine sound and is quiet, the rear-mounted electric motor accelerates instantly from a stop, smoothly and quickly passing other vehicles and effortlessly changing lanes. Even at high speeds, the serene environment is a stress reducer on long commutes.
Design: The exterior design of the Mercedes EQE is also elegant and aerodynamic, with a head-turning style that attracts attention. The LED lighting, sculptured lines, and bold front grille give it a distinct presence wherever it goes.
Stepping into the EQE’s elegantly designed interior with premium materials, spaciousness, and luxury, you’re surrounded by advanced technology at your fingertips, including a 12.3-inch touchscreen, ambient lighting, a 15-speaker Burmester stereo system, a wireless charging pad, and power front seats with heat. Massage seats are also available.
