The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE is new to the Mercedes-Benz lineup and will slot in below the larger and more luxurious EQS. We expect it to arrive in U.S. showrooms sometime in late 2022.
Although Mercedes hasn’t said how much the 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE will cost, we expect its starting price will be about $13,000 more than the entry-level E-class sedan, which should put it at right around $65,000 when it eventually goes on sale.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
With a single electric motor mounted on its rear axle, the EQE350 generates 288 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque. Mercedes says this setup will allow the sedan to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds on its way to an estimated top speed of 130 mph.
An all-wheel-drive version of the 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE will also be offered with a second electric motor powering the front wheels and producing over 400 horses.
However, Mercedes hasn’t said how powerful or quick this 4Matic variant will be. Still, both configurations will be available with an air suspension and a rear-wheel-steering system for what should be a very smooth ride and improved maneuverability in tight spaces. A set of 19-inch wheels are standard, but we expect larger rims to be offered, likely with the optional AMG Line appearance package.
