Just a couple of weeks ago, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the EQE sedan at the Munich Motor Show – one of its most important (in the future) models aimed at rivalry with Tesla Model S, Porsche Taycan, Audi e-tron GT, Lucid Air and BMW i4. And now our spies have caught on tests a new derivative of this electric car – with large two-tone wheels and a rear spoiler.
Apparently, this is a “hot” model, built according to the same recipe as the recently debuted Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic +. If the “civilian” four-door EQE 350 received the only electric motor installed on the rear axle with 292 hp. and 530 Nm and a battery with a capacity of 90.6 kilowatt-hours, the AMG EQE 53 (name already registered) should be equipped with a twin-engine all-wheel drive system with a return in the region of 500 kilowatts (680 hp). In comparison, the AMG EQS 53 develops 751 hp at its peak.
The “charged” EQE is still being tested in disguise, but it can be assumed that, following the example of the same EQS, a Panamericana grille with vertical ribs will be drawn on its front “black panel”, adaptive air suspension and a fully-controlled chassis will be added to the standard equipment. / p>
By the way, Mercedes has also registered the EQE 43 and EQE 63 trademarks. Assuming that the Germans seriously expect to compete with Tesla, the last name should be assigned to the top version of the sedan, which will challenge the three-engine Model S Plaid. whose power exceeds 1000 hp
