2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE Finally Revealed!

2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE – Overview

The Mercedes-AMG EQE is the latest addition to Mercedes-electrified Benz’s portfolio.

This new electric sedan aspires to match the performance of the larger AMG EQS while fitting into the EQE’s more petite package.

Here are the three major highlights of the 2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE:

  • The AMG version of Mercedes’ EQE electric vehicle has been showcased.
  • It has the same 90.6-kWh battery pack as the non-AMG model and can produce 677 horsepower.
  • In early 2023, the AMG EQE will be available in the United States.

Exterior Design

AMG EQE models have the same body panels as ordinary EQE models, but the unique wheel and tire combinations, as well as the AMG decor, give them a distinct presence on the road.

For example, a gurney-style spoiler accentuates the tail. In addition, the Dynamic Plus bundle includes a “sound experience” feature that adds more artificial sounds. 

Interior Design

The inside of the AMG EQE improves on the standard setup, which is already rather impressive. Leatherette, microfiber, and red stitching are used in the AMG seats.

The instrument and door panels also have extra leatherette and red stitching. AMG’s flat-bottom steering wheel comes standard, with a unique double-bladed spoke design and plush Nappa leather upholstery.

In addition, the Hyperscreen, with its neck-breaking dashboard width, is offered, while less-optioned vehicles have a more standard touchscreen setup.

Power Range

The AMG EQE53 boosts the two electric motors’ output to 617 horsepower and 701 pound-feet of torque. In contrast, the optional Dynamic Plus package increases overall output to 677 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque.

The average car takes 3.4 seconds to reach 60 mph, while the box takes 3.2 sec, while the top speed is limited to either 137 or 149 mph.

A single-speed transmission carries the torque. In Europe, a lower-powered AMG EQE43 model will be available, but not in the United States.

Battery

The power is delivered by a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 90.6 kilowatt-hours.

According to Mercedes-Benz, it will accept up to 170 kW DC charging, which will add around 112 miles of range (based on European WLTP estimates) in about 15 minutes.

At-home charging will be handled by an 11-kW onboard charger, with a 22-kW solution available as an option.

The AMG EQE’s range is now estimated to be between 275 and 322 miles, although official US figures won’t be available for a time.

Driving Modes, Brakes & Suspensions

There are five different drive modes on the AMG EQE, each with a different power limit: Slippery mode restricts the car’s output to 50%, while Comfort and Sport provide 80% and 90%, respectively, while Sport Plus and Race Start offer the entire package.

Those vehicle modes will also change the air suspension tune and cooling system timing, and the stability control can be turned off entirely if you want to cause havoc.

For further agility, rear-axle steering is standard, as are 16-inch front brakes and 15-inch rear brakes.

Also available are high-performance ceramic brakes, which increase the front rotor size to 17.3 inches.

The optional AMG Dynamic Plus package includes unique sound profiles for driving and ancillary functions such as locking and starting the car.

Launch Date & Price

The Mercedes-AMG EQE 2023 will go on sale in the first quarter of 2023, with the price to be disclosed closer to the launch.

The Tesla Model 3 Performance, Tesla Model S, and BMW i4 M50 will be up against it; we also expect some cross-shopping with the Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan.
