the 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE electric sedan – the battery-powered equivalent of the E-Class – is now available in Australia with prices starting at US$134,900 plus road costs.
It has a similar overall length to the petrol-powered Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan – but the EQE is 101mm wide, 57mm taller and 181mm longer in wheelbase.
Three model variants will initially be available in Australia – the rear-wheel drive Mercedes-Benz EQE300, the all-wheel drive EQE350 and the flagship, all-wheel-drive performance variant Mercedes-AMG EQE53.
The EQE300’s $134,900 plus road cost is the same as the rear-wheel-drive gasoline-powered E350 sedan — but it’s nearly $30,000 more expensive than the cheapest E-Class on offer, the E200 ($106,600 plus road cost).
Meanwhile, the AMG EQE53 4Matic+ sits between the two all-wheel-drive AMG versions of the E-Class – the turbocharged straight-six E53 ($175,400 plus on the road) and the twin-turbo V8-powered E63 S ($272,000 plus ). in the street).
The Mercedes-Benz EQE300 is powered by a 180kW/550Nm electric motor driving the rear wheels, fed by an 89kWh battery for a range of 626km – albeit after mild NEDC lab tests – and 0 acceleration to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds.
Standard equipment includes a 12.8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and satellite navigation, a premium Burmester stereo, a panoramic sunroof, heated electric seats, 20-inch wheels, an AMG exterior design, adaptive LED Headlights with Digital Light and a full suite of advanced safety technology.
The Mercedes-Benz EQE350 4Matic adds $20,000 to the list price and upgrades to two electric motors for all-wheel drive, combined outputs of 215 kW and 765 Nm, a claimed 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 6.3 seconds.
It should offer a range of 590 km (according to NEDC guidelines). Foreign specifications show that the EQE350 and AMG EQE53 are equipped with large 90.6 kWh batteries.
According to Mercedes-Benz Australia, the only addition the EQE350 4Matic has over the EQE300 is an AMG rear lip spoiler.
The top model is the Mercedes-AMG EQE53 4Matic+, which combines more powerful electric motors for 460 kW and 950 Nm, good for a 0-100 km/h time of 3.5 seconds and 500 km of claimed NEDC range.
The AMG Dynamic Plus package will be available as an option for $7400 and will add a Race Start launch control mode that boosts power to 505kW / 1000Nm, an AMG Track Pace app, new AMG driving sounds and a lower time 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and an increased top speed of 240 km/h (up from 220 km/h).
The AMG flagship features AMG exterior styling elements, ventilated nappa leather sports seats in the front, an AMG Performance nappa leather steering wheel, air suspension and rear-wheel steering.
