The sporty business saloon offers all the essential functions of the EQS in a slightly more compact format.

At market launch, the local model range initially comprises two variants: the EQE 350+ with 215 kW and 565 Nm, as well as the Mercedes-AMG EQE 43 4MATIC with 350 kW and 858 Nm. With a WLTP driving range of up to 645 km, the EQE offers customers the best of all worlds, reconciling innovation, emotion and sustainability. 

More details on the local Mercedes-EQE range will be announced later this month. Later this year, Mercedes-Benz Cars South Africa will also introduce the EQE SUV and EQS SUV, bringing the local battery EV model range to a total of seven, the most extensive and varied offered by any manufacturer.
