More recently, Mercedes-Benz presented a new development strategy for the company. The point is that by 2030 the concern may completely abandon hydrocarbon-fueled engines. But this only applies to the European market, as environmental hysteria does not subside there. For other countries, including Russia, Mercedes will continue to be available with internal combustion engines.
It has now become known that the official presentation of the Mercedes-Benz EQE model will take place in September this year at the IAA Munich exhibition. It is this car that will replace the E-class in the EU countries.
By the way, it was Mercedes-Benz E-class in 2020 that became the best-selling car in the business segment in Europe: despite the pandemic, 70 cars were sold. Therefore, the novelty has every chance to take its place under the sun.
Mercedes-Benz EQE has already hit the lenses of journalists, though only in camouflage. And the renders of the car turned out to be very close to reality - official teasers were published on July 29.
Externally, the Mercedes-Benz EQE resembles the older model Mercedes-Benz EQS, but in smaller sizes. But most likely the body form factor will not be a liftback, but a sedan. However, the interior will be more spacious than that of the E-class. This is achieved by the new MEA platform (on the basis of the same EQS is built).
About what technical characteristics the Mercedes-Benz EQE has, nothing is known yet. But journalists from the German edition of Auto Motorund Sport received information that the car will receive a battery with a capacity of 90 kWh, and the engine is either on the rear or on both axles. That is, an all-wheel drive electric car may appear.
A sports version of the Mercedes-Benz EQE AMG is also expected.
