Mercedes EQE: Anti-Tesla Model S – Companies


This EQE was born to be the “anti-Tesla Model S”. Mercedes is distinguished by a more original and futuristic look, which not everyone will dig easily. Split style, as we say in marketing.

This battery-powered sedan reflects the size of the E-Class. On board, the atmosphere is just as impressive as in the outgoing EQS, especially with the optional large 1.41m wide digital instrument panel. It consists of three screens, including one dedicated to the passenger, allowing him to adjust various functions, watch videos or browse the Internet. To breathe easily in the city, the EQE has modern air filtration equipment, which can stop 99.75% of all kinds of particles and get rid of bad smells. This refined bag can also be placed on the air suspension (optional). We recommend it because it makes us fly over the road almost weightlessly. In the back, there’s plenty of legroom, but the bench seat isn’t the most comfortable. The trunk is large, but less practical than that of the EQS (more of a tail here but a simple trunk lid).

The EQE is offered in several versions: rear-engine (245 or 292 hp) or two-wheel drive (292, 408, 476 or 687 hp). Our test 350+ declares an official range of 659 km, but we noted 480 in practice, which is excellent. We recommend the optional rear-wheel steering, which reduces turning radius and makes this sedan more agile in curves. Road holding is then very good, although the weight prevents heat, especially when stopping, especially since the pedal is spongy and unstable. This car is appreciated in the past for its gentleness and silence. The main rival of the Tesla Model S, which is already 10 years old …
