Mercedes-Benz’s first all-electric sedan, the EQE, is the latest addition to the German automaker’s rapidly expanding electric vehicle portfolio. As one would expect from Mercedes, it’s ultra-luxurious. Unlike its predecessors however, all three variants of the EQE come equipped with an incredible array of technology.

Can this sedan out-class its luxurious all-electric peers, the Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan? Let’s find out.



Three variations of the EQE are available: the single E-motor EQE 300, dual E-motor EQE 350 4MATIC and dual E-motor Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 4MATIC+.


Between 500km and 626km, depending on the variant.

Charging time and ports:

All EQE variants are served by a Plug Type 2 CCS charger capable of speeds up to AC 11kW and DC 170kW as standard. An optional alternating current charging system (up to 22kW AC charging) is available.


Between 89kWh and 90.5kWh, depending on the variant.


Between 180kW and 460kW depending on variant.

Energy consumption

Between 16.3 kWh/100km and 21.8 kWh/100km, depending on the variant.


Between 0 to 100km/h in 3.5s and 0 to 100km/h in 7.3s, depending on the variant.

Top Speed: 

Between 210km/h and 220km/h, depending on the variant.


Between 550Nm/3086 RPM rated torque and 950Nm/4639 RPM, depending on the variant.


Between 2380kg kerb weight and 2530kg kerb weight depending on the variant.


All variants L 4946mm, W 1961mm and H 1510mm.

Drive Type:

The EQE 300 is rear-wheel drive, and the EQE 350 4MATIC and Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 4MATIC+ are all-wheel drive.

Design & look

The EQE has a striking aerodynamic silhouette thanks to its unmistakable one-bow design – a coupé-like shoulder line that flows from the rear to the front. Those ultra-polished curves do come at the cost of interior space, however. The EQE is essentially a clone of its bigger brother, the EQS, but slightly smaller in stature. 

Particularly head-turning is the radiator grille with an integrated 3D tri-star logo and 20-inch AMG alloy wheels. Flush-fitting door handles and a generous panoramic sliding sunroof add to its sleekness, while digital LED headlamp technology anticipates and adapts brightness depending on the setting of your drive. For added allure, the 4MATIC+ variant comes with chic AMG body styling.

Features and interior

The EQE is overflowing with technology, namely the MBUX Hyperscreen. Hyper by name, hyper by nature, this futuristic cockpit comprises three OLED displays that can be intuitively operated and span the full width of the vehicle’s dash interior. Hyperscreen is available as an extra.

Trims and finishes feel luxurious to the touch – even the Dinamica eco-fabric – and merge seamlessly with the mood-setting lighting trims. Its Burmester® surround sound system is rather impressive indeed. As for practicality? It’s not bad. The boot capacity on all variants is 430 litres.


The EQE 300’s 89kWh battery serves up a superb 626km range, so it would be a great choice for going the distance on weekend getaways. If you’re craving next-level acceleration and speed, the punchier EQE 53 4MATIC+ hits 0-100km/h in just 3.5 seconds, comfortably smashing the Audi e-tron GT’s 4.1 seconds and the Porsche Taycan’s 5.4 seconds. 

While the EQE may not be a sports car, it delivers a sporty yet refined driving experience consistent with Mercedes-Benz’s reputation for top-notch performance. Its long wheelbase makes for a large turning circle, so squeezing into tiny parking spots may be tricky.

All EQE variants are served by a Plug Type 2 CCS charger capable of speeds up to AC 11kW and DC 170kW as standard. An optional alternating current charging system (up to 22kW AC charging) is available.

Safety and warranty

The Mercedes-Benz EQE has an impressive five-star ANCAP rating. All standard variants come with ten airbags and plenty of driving assistance features like ADAPTIVE BRAKE with HOLD, brake drying, priming function, Hill Start Assist and DISTRONIC the Active Distance Assist that adjusts speed and distance. A reassuring GUARD 360° vehicle protection offers peace of mind with all-round monitoring of the vehicle’s surroundings.

All EQE variants come with a five-year warranty from the first registration date or until the vehicle has travelled 200,000km, whichever occurs first.


While the Mercedes S-Class vehicle, the EQS, outperforms the EQE in size and horsepower, the latter still delivers on every Mercedes metric: style, comfort and advanced technology – especially the super slick 4MATIC+.

If you’re a devotee of the prestige German carmaker and love your tech, you’ll likely fall in love with any of the EQE variants. If you’re looking for a family-friendly all-rounder at the premium end of the market, there may be other models that align with your needs, be it Mercedes’ roomier EQB SUV or the more affordable Tesla Model Y.
