Mercedes EQE shows up for the first time

Mercedes-Benz is busy testing under winter conditions. The Citan also passed by today, but the really big news is this EQE. That all-electric newcomer from Mercedes was never seen before.

Mercedes-Benz will be rolling out its electric model offensive under the EQ label in the coming years. The EQC was already at the end of 2018. In the meantime, the smaller EQA and EQB have also come along as test specimens and they are expected to come onto the market this year. Further in the future lies the introduction of the EQE, which, unlike the aforementioned EQ models, does not have its electric power train in an SUV package. The EQE, as can be seen on these espionage photos, becomes more of a sedan / gran coupe.

The EQA, EQB and EQC broadly share their design with the GLA, CAP and GLC respectively. The EQE is logically related to the E-class, but at first glance the differences are large. It therefore seems that the EQE is going its own way more in terms of basic form or possibly a precursor to the lines of the next generation of the E-class. Striking details are the low-positioned headlights, the relatively high C-pillar and the sloping roofline. All in all, the design also reminds one of an important future competitor; the BMW i4. It will be on the market at the end of 2021 and you can count on this Mercedes EQE around that time.
