New Mercedes EQE Sedan That’s €30K Cheaper Than Its EQS Sibling In Germany Detailed In Massive Gallery

Mercedes-EQ has dropped a raft of new pictures of the EQE, the latest all-electric sedan from the German carmaker that also happens to be €30K cheaper than its bigger brother in Germany, the EQS.

There’s not much new in terms of styling on the EQE, as it’s almost a carbon copy of its larger sibling that debuted last year, the EQS. The most notable change is the deletion of the vertical chrome grille lines, as well as a slightly shorter wheelbase.

But just because there isn’t much new doesn’t mean that it isn’t a great design, and in fact, some might see it as a bargain-priced version of the larger, and more expensive electric S-Class equivalent.

At just 90mm shorter than the EQS, the EQE would probably fool onlookers into thinking it was the more expensive model. Despite the shorter wheelbase, however, the cabin is 80mm longer than its gasoline-equivalent E-Class sedan. The only area where the EQE falters significantly against the larger EQS is in trunk space, which is down 110 liters.

Similarities to the EQS continue inside the vehicle with a 12.3″ screen in front of the driver to display all the pertinent information and a 13″ infotainment touchscreen for everything else. A massive full-width “Hyperscreen” is also available as an extra-cost option, with specific controls for the passenger to keep the driver from being distracted.

Single motor EQE 350 and dual motor EQE 500 models of the EQE will be available. The EQE 350 offers 288 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels, and can boast a driving range of 406 miles (654 km) on the WLTP cycle thanks to a 90 kWh battery pack.

The performance-oriented EQE 500 has a combined power figure of 402 hp from its upgraded dual-motor setup, with power being sent to all four wheels. EQE 350 models can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds, while Mercedes has not given performance or economy figures for the EQE 500.

In Europe, the EQS Sedan starts at €103,828, but the EQE carries a base price of just €70,627, which represents significant savings for a very similar-looking vehicle. Buyers will be hard-pressed to go for the more expensive option with the EQE right there, but they’ll have to deal with the minor tradeoffs if they decide to save a bit of cash.
