Camouflage continues to hide the all-electric Mercedes EQE sedan from Germany.
Development of new Mercedes electric vehicles will not slow down anytime soon. The company took off the camouflage of its flagship electric vehicle last week with the unveiling of the EQS sedan. This is just one model in a growing line of electric vehicles that the automaker will unveil in the coming weeks, months and years. After the EQS, there will be an EQE due to debut in September, and a new batch of spy photos show the sedan cruising the Nurburgring.
In the new photos, the car is still disguised. Mercedes will put a lot of emphasis on aerodynamics. The EQS is the most aerodynamic production car with a drag coefficient of 0.20. The EQE is shaped like its larger sedan sibling. Superior aerodynamics only increase the vehicle’s range. However, there are clear design differences between the two: the EQE has a traditional tailgate with an integrated third brake light.
Inside the EQE, which has become the all-electric equivalent of the E-Class, is as spacious as the S-Class. The novelty will be equipped with the latest technology, but buyers shouldn’t expect it to compete with the well-designed EQS.
Mercedes can offer the EQE with different battery sizes and capacities. The all-wheel drive version is rumored to offer around 402 horsepower and 765 Nm. When it goes on sale next year, it will compete with the Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan at a starting price of around $ 85,000.
The debut is scheduled for September when the company will present it at the IIA in Munich.
