Mercedes-Benz introduced its latest fully electric sport utility vehicle today with the introduction of the 2023 Mercedes-EQ EQE SUV and its AMG counterpart, the Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV.

 

This latest electric sport utility vehicle from Mercedes-Benz will sit below the EQS SUV introduced earlier this year and will join a growing lineup of new electric sport utility vehicles and sedans coming from Mercedes-EQ. The 2023 Mercedes-EQ EQE SUV will arrive in March, and it will be available in two versions here in Canada.

The 2023 EQE SUV will be available in 350 4Matic and 500 4Matic versions with the first offering 288 hp while the more powerful EQE 500 4Matic will deliver 402 hp. Torque is rated at 564 pound-feet for the EQE 350 4Matic and 633 pound-feet of torque for the EQE 500 4Matic.

As for the impressive Mercedes-AMG EQE 4MATIC+ SUV, it will offer an impressive 617 hp standard while total horsepower can increase to 677 hp when switching the AMG Dynamic Plus selector to the sportiest mode. Maximum torque is rated at 738 pound-feet, and the new EQE SUV from AMG reaches 100 km/h in roughly 3.5 seconds according to Mercedes-AMG.

 

Fully Electric Mercedes-AMG EQE Debuts

 

The electrical components include a 90.6-kWh battery that should provide over 400 kilometres of range with the most generous model likely inching towards 500 kilometres. Nothing has been confirmed in this area, however. We do know that the AMG EQE along with both the Mercedes-EQ EQE SUV 350 4Matic and 500 4Matic will be able to charge at up to 170 kW, while an onboard optional 22-kW charger will be available.

 

Visually, the EQE SUV shares its design language with the brand-new EQS SUV, although we can tell that it is definitely smaller. Wheel options ranging from 19 to 22 inches will be available, and the interior can include an optional MBUX Hyperscreen that measures over 141 cm wide. This large screen houses the MBUX infotainment system with advanced voice commands, and three distinct screens including a centre display, a passenger screen, and a digital instrument cluster.

The AMG version gets its own design elements that are more aggressive, as expected. Moreover, we find the AMG logo on the hood as opposed to the traditional Mercedes-Benz logo which is a first for an AMG electric vehicle. On the road, we expect the AMG model to be more dynamic and sportier, while the available Performance Sound experience will offer three distinct sound options.

Although Mercedes-EQ did not provide many details on the new lineup of midsize luxury electric SUVs introduced today, we know that the German automaker will be following its tried-and-true model lineup recipe. While the EQS SUV is the equivalent of the gas-powered GLS in the upcoming electric SUV lineup that Mercedes will offer in Canada, the EQE SUV is the equivalent of a GLE. Smaller and more accessible than an EQS SUV, it should provide impressive comfort and refinement nonetheless. It will be a direct competitor to the Tesla Model Y and Audi e-tron when it goes on sale next year. Pricing should be announced closer to the on-sale date. Give us a call today to learn more.
