The Mercedes-Benz EQE is coming?

Is Mercedes-Benz planning the arrival of another fully electric vehicle with the EQE?

Mercedes-Benz has just launched its first utility vehicle powered exclusively by electricity. The Mercedes-Benz EQC, which will be made available to the Canadian public somewhere in the spring of 2020, is the first of a dozen electric vehicles planned by the Stuttgart firm before the end of 2025.

Of course, there is the EQC, but also the EQA, the EQS, the EQB and the EQV. However, according to a report by the British magazine Autocar, we can add the acronym EQE to this future all-electric range, a sedan that, as its name suggests, would take the form of an E-Class without a thermal engine between its two front wheels. This EQE would fit under the EQS which – you guessed it – would be a distant cousin of the S-Class at the top of the EQ range. With the EQE, Mercedes-Benz has the intention to take some Tesla Model S sales away, nothing less.

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC First Drive Review: Subtle Revolution

The German manufacturer wants its electric fleet to account for a quarter of its global sales by 2025, an ambitious figure we must admit. It is for this reason that Mercedes-Benz will have to accelerate the marketing of these future EVs.

The EQE sedan would be the second car of the brand to be based on the platform dedicated to electric vehicles, the same that serves as the architecture for the EQC SUV. The other electric models planned will instead be based on existing platforms of vehicles equipped with internal combustion engines.

It is of course very early to speculate on the spec sheet of this electric sedan in the making, but as mentioned by Autocar, it would not be surprising to see a variant with four-wheel drive because of the presence of two electric motors, while a rear-wheel drive version could also see the light of day a little later.

And since the development of electric technology evolves very quickly, it is possible to hope even for more autonomy with the EQE… than what is planned for the EQC when it arrives on our roads next year.
