The Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV will Start at $77,900 in the United States

The pricing and specifications of the Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV have been released for the American market.

  • The EQE SUV is offered with three powertrains, each available with one of three trim levels.

  • This model will launch a number of features such as a heat pump, a decoupling front motor and autonomous lane changes.

  • Assembly of the vehicle and its batteries will take place in Alabama.

Mercedes-Benz announced the pricing and specification structure of the EQE SUV for the American market earlier today.

The electric SUV will start at $77,900 and its most expensive version will have a base price of $95,200.

Three powertrains and three trim levels will be offered on this model in the U.S, starting with the rear-wheel drive 350+ which will feature a single motor, followed by the 350 4MATIC, and finally the 500 4MATIC.

Both the rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions of the EQE 350 SUV will be priced the same and, in keeping with the other electric Mercedes models, only the AWD powertrain is expected to be offered in Canada.

This all-wheel-drive system is not identical to the one found in other Mercedes EVs, however since it will feature a new axle disconnect feature that monitors the road and the drivetrain 160 times per second to determine if the front motor is necessary.

If not, a clutch can decouple the motor in only 100 milliseconds in order to reduce drag and thus improve efficiency.

Another new feature aimed at improving efficiency is the standard heat pump which uses waste heat from the motors, inverters, and battery to warm up the cabin without having to run dedicated heaters.

Each of the three powertrains will be available with one of three trim levels which feature different levels of equipment.

The standard “Premium” will feature highlights such as the MBUX infotainment system, MB-Tex upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, a Burmester sound system, and a 64-colour ambient lighting system.

Choosing this version with the 500 4MATIC powertrain adds leather upholstery, 20-inch alloy wheels, rear axle steering, and an AMG Line exterior for a price of $89,500.

Moving up to the “Exclusive” model adds augmented reality for the navigation system, active ambient lighting, and a driver assistance package that can now perform fully autonomous lane changes. This version starts at $80,000 on the EQE 350+ and EQE 350 4MATIC, or $91,600 on the EQE 500 4MATIC.

The top-of-the-line “Pinnacle” model also features a four-zone climate control system, the Air Balance Package, Energizing Comfort, a head-up display, star logo projectors in the doors, and the DIGITAL LIGHT package which uses the headlamps to project warnings or markings directly on the road surface. This version has a base price of $83,600 for the EQE 350+ and EQE 350, while it will cost $95,200 for the EQE 500 4MATIC.

In addition to all of these features, these prices will also include unlimited free 30-minute fast-charging sessions on the Electrify America for two years after purchase.

Canadian pricing and specifications should be announced soon since deliveries of the Alabama-made SUV are expected to start later this spring.
