Smooth, quiet and rich in torque, the EQE 350+ Sedan is powered by an advanced 215kW electric motor that can send up to 288 hp and 391-ft of torque to the rear wheels. The "permanently excited synchronous motor" (PSM) features permanent magnets to generate AC current with high power density and efficiency. An advanced cooling system helps maintain its high-performance consistency during spirited driving and a wide range of climates.
Incorporated into the available AIRMATIC® air suspension, ADS continually optimizes ride and handling by automatically selecting one of four damping profiles for each spring-strut every time a wheel changes its direction of up-down travel. Driver-selectable Comfort and Sport modes allow you tailor handling response and ride firmness to your present driving style.
Paddles on the steering wheel let you vary the intensity of energy recuperated by deceleration and braking during normal driving. Three levels of recuperation are selectable: normal, increased (which can allow one-pedal driving), and none (effectively coasting when you let off the driving pedal). A "D Auto" setting can activate the intelligent ECO Assist feature.
A multimode drive program selector on the console lets you transform the car's character with the flip of a switch. Three modes (ECO, Comfort and Sport) alter the drivetrain response, steering effort, and available AIRMATIC® suspension. A fourth "Individual" mode allows you to create a mode of your own.
With longer life, quicker illumination and beams that approximate daylight even more closely than xenon headlamps, multi-element LED headlamps can enhance both vision and visibility during nighttime driving. LED Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs) and all other front light functions are integrated with the flowing sculpture of the headlamp assemblies, making the design as appealing as it is illuminating. The taillamps feature a full-width LED accent with a distinctive helix effect.
A network of LEDs let you create cabin ambience to suit your mood. Edge-lighting glows along the dash, door trim, and even the outline of each front seatback. Along with 64 selectable colors and day/night brightness modes, numerous programs let you enjoy static or slowly changing multicolor motifs.
The "Black Panel" front end design advances the legendary and widely recognized Star-centered grille to a new aesthetic. An intriguing Star pattern radiates from the large central emblem in a three-dimensional display of brilliant chrome against the gloss-black background. The motif celebrates the now-iconic Daimler logo first trademarked in 1911.
Innovative Touch Controls elevate the multifunction steering wheel to an unparalleled level of user-friendliness. Finger-sensitive buttons access features like audio, Bluetooth® and cruise control. Four smartphone-like pads offer direct control of countless cockpit features. The upper touchpads operate the menu screen in the gauge cluster or the central multimedia display. Larger, lower touchpads let you vary your cruising speed or adjust the audio volume, all with your hands on the wheel.
Two friendly words let you activate the voice control features of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX). Just say "Hey, Mercedes" and then tell MBUX what you'd like in everyday language, like you're talking to another person. Want the MB Navigation to guide to a coffee shop? You can just say "Hey, Mercedes, I need a coffee" or ask it to find your favorite coffee chain nearby. Enhancements include support for up to nine languages, and a built-in help feature.
Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology allows wireless charging of a compatible phone or other device that supports the Qi standard. An inductive charging tray in the front-cabin console lets you charge your device's battery while you drive without plugging it in.
The Burmester® 3D system pairs innovations in mobile audio with legendary quality. A Digital Signal Processing amp can output 710 total watts to deliver a natural sound spectrum in any music genre. A total of 15 speakers includes 3D surround speakers, exquisitely drilled metal speaker grilles, and body-integrated FrontBass subwoofers. Along with preset listening modes, Sound Personalization can tailor settings to your individual tastes. EV Sound features integrate with the EQE Sound Experience.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
When traveling above approximately 20 mph, radar technology can help sense when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area. Blind Spot Assist can then alert the driver via an illuminated red icon in the appropriate side mirror. An audible warning sounds if the driver activates a turn signal while a vehicle is detected in the blind spot.
With technology to monitor ordinary road markings above a certain driving speed, Active Lane Keeping Assist can help detect unintended drifting off-course, and alert you by vibrating the steering wheel. If you continue to drift, it can selectively brake individual wheels to help guide the car back. Enhancements help it alert you to overtaking vehicles, vehicles you'd need to overtake if you change lanes, and even traffic in the adjacent lane or along the road edge for safer evasive moves.
At speeds below approximately 20 mph, special sound generators in the front and rear of the vehicle emit an EQ-specific sound to help pedestrians notice its approach. The sound changes volume and pitch as speed increases, starting to fade above 12 mph as natural rolling noises overtake the need. The system can also emit a widely recognized repeating tone when Reverse gear is selected at any speed.
Adaptive braking technology integrates a suite of advances. If you lift off the accelerator quickly, Predictive Brake Priming can set the pads closer to the discs for more immediate response when you apply the brakes. In the rain, Automatic Brake Drying can periodically apply the brakes just enough to sweep water build-up from the discs. During uphill starts, Hill-Start Assist can help prevent unwanted rollback. And a HOLD feature can make long red lights or stopped traffic a little easier.
