EQE’s design will break with tradition, according to Autoblog. From the leaked images, it shows the roof of the car with a domed roofline that sweeps down the short tail, a new LED taillight cluster.
The EQE interior receives the same design and technology features as the EQS. The highlight is the MBUX Hyperscreen screen, including a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 17.7-inch infotainment screen and a 12.3-inch secondary screen for the passenger seat. The three-spoke steering wheel integrates many function keys, the turbine-style air-conditioning vents, the interior LED lighting system and the rear-seat entertainment screen.
The EQE electric car model uses the same powertrain as the EQS, according to Carscoops, including 450 version with electric motor located on the rear axle, capacity of 329 horsepower, torque of 568 Nm.
