Some speak of the "real E-Class". Mercedes talks about "sensual clarity", "incomparable modernity" and "elegant one-bow design" at the presentation of its second electric saloon after the EQS. But what distinguishes the EQE 350+ on a daily basis?
We can summarise the first impressions for you: compared with the significantly larger EQS, the EQE is a saloon with a classic boot lid and a much more compact appearance. Although it is almost 5 metres long and weighs just under 2.4 tonnes, the EQE 350+ offers an unexpectedly high level of agility and driving pleasure. In addition to the smooth electric drive, the competent chassis with air suspension and rear-axle steering (up to 10⁰ turn-in) makes a favourable impression.
This is on top of Mercedes' customary premium quality in the interior with MBUX Hyperscreen, real wood décor and a high-end sound system.
Key technical data for the Mercedes EQE 350+:
- E-motor with 215 kW / 292 hp and 565 Nm torque
- rear axle drive
- Dimensions: 4.95 m length, 1.96 m width, 1.51 m height

The new EQE 350+ offers more than enough starting points for consumer surveys, comparative rides and tests, such as the "somewhat disappointing" finish mentioned in the trade press (AMS on the 30th of June). What impact could this have on acceptance in the market? Beyond the dimensions, where are the main differences to the EQS? How does the EQE compare with the competition (Tesla Model S, Porche Taycan) and the Mercedes E, Audi A6, BMW 5 Series from the combustion engine side?
