Mercedes unveils the EQE SUV.

Mercedes will start the production of the EQE SUV in December at the Tuscaloosa, Alabama (USA) plant.

Mercedes Benz has unveiled the next car in the EQ lineup, the EQE SUV. It is the multi-purpose variant of the EQE luxury sedan. Like all EQ models, it also uses the new all-electric platform.

The modular drive concept enables the EQE SUV to offer a wide range of maximum total drive outputs from 215 to 300 kW. Depending on the vehicle’s equipment and configuration, it can achieve WLTP ranges of up to 590 km.

The in-house made battery management software is capable of over-the-air updates. It will help the energy management of the EQE SUV to remain up-to-date throughout its entire life cycle.

The EQE SUV comes with three charging programs - Standard, Home, and Work. In these, parameters such as departure time, climate control, and maximum charge level can be preset. The Home and Work charging programs can be activated based on location. This means that they are switched on automatically as soon as the vehicle is parked at a charging point at the positions stored in the system. The car also supports DC fast charging up to 170 kW.

The EQE SUV shares some aerodynamic measures with the previous EQ models. It has a drag coefficient of 0.25. Many aerodynamic measures result in the high aerodynamic efficiency of the SUV. These include novel, patent-pending wheel spoilers in front of the front axle. With a serrated lower edge, small apron, and longitudinal ribs, numerous details contribute to improving the flow of air to the front wheel.

The EQE SUV will come with standard driving assistance systems, such as ATTENTION ASSIST, Active Brake Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Parking Package with a rearview camera, and Speed Limit Assist.

Optional driving assistance systems are also available, such as Active Distance Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Active Steering Assist, Active Lane Change Assist, Active Emergency Stop Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, etc.

With adaptive software, the MBUX display and operating system make personalized suggestions for numerous infotainment, comfort, and vehicle functions. A highlight of the interior is the optional MBUX Hyperscreen. With the zero-layer design, the user does not have to scroll through submenus or give voice commands. Situationally and contextually, applications appear at the top level in the field of view. This relieves the driver of quite a number of operating steps.

Mercedes‑Benz has completely integrated many music streaming providers into the MBUX infotainment system with the “Online Music” service. The integration of ZYNC gives passengers a seamless digital entertainment experience tailored to the EQE SUV.

Production of the EQE SUV will begin in December at the Mercedes‑Benz Tuscaloosa, Alabama (USA) plant. The battery factory in nearby Bibb County will supply the battery pack.
