Mercedes-Benz’ EQE electric sedan explained in 5 key specs

The electrified version of its E-Class fills the gap between Mercedes-Benz' more luxurious electric SUVs and its more affordable EV models.

Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz has been building out a solid pipeline of electric vehicles for the near future. Its EQS sedan might be the only one in the U.S. market right now, but it’s working on a bunch of EVs under its EQ branding.

Beyond the EQS, there’s the EQC SUV, the EQT minivan, and the more affordable EQB SUV. Now, we can also add the 2023 EQE sedan to the list of EVs that Mercedes-Benz is looking to release soon.

Here are five key specs you need to know about the Mercedes-Benz EQE...

Mercedes-Benz

288 HP

And 417 lb-ft of torque.

At 288 horsepower, it’s not the fastest EV in Mercedes-Benz’ lineup, but it’s more than capable as a daily driver. Compared to the traditional E-Class that this EV is based off of, it’s a fair bit faster than the starting 255 horsepower of the ICE.

Mercedes-Benz

90kWh

The battery capacity of the EQE.

Mercedes-Benz

The battery capacity for the 2023 model means we should see anywhere from 350 to 400 miles in range. The 2022 model had a slightly smaller battery capacity and had a range of at least 341 miles.

30 mins

Time it takes to charge the EQR through DC fast charging

Mercedes-Benz

You can charge the EQE sedan from 10 to 100 percent in just half an hour with 170kW DC fast charging stations. If you have a 240V in your home, you can also get a full charge in about 9.5 hours.

10°

10° of rear axle steering: an optional feature that makes this mid-size sedan turn like a compact car.

Mercedes-Benz

This neat feature is something that’s been available on most Mercedes-Benz models, including the EQS SUV. As the name suggests, the rear axle can actually steer slightly to make tighter turns much smoother.

~$66K

A rough guess at the 2023 EQE sedan's starting price.

Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz hasn’t offered up any pricing details on the latest EQE sedan. We’re going off the previous year’s EQE sedan’s pricing in Germany, which came in at a starting price of roughly €66,000.

This price point has the EQE sedan fall just above the EQB SUV, but far below the more premium EQS models. Mercedes-Benz did, however, recently tease the interior of an SUV version of the EQE that’s due to release this fall.
