Mercedes-AMG have unveiled their second electric car, the EQE.

It comes in two versions, the EQE 43 and EQE 53. Both models get the coveted AMG badge and join the EQS in the AMG EV line-up.

Mercedes-AMG have been doing well in terms of keeping up with their promise of going all-electric by 2030. Their latest addition to the AMG EQ series are two all-wheel-drive iterations of the EQE with an AMG badge, dubbed the ‘Mercedes-AMG EQE 43 4MATIC’ and ‘Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 4MATIC+’.

The entry level AMG 43 is equipped with dual motors that are powered by an upgraded AMG-tuned electrical system which delivers a total of 476 hp and 858 Nm of peak torque which can easily finish the 0-100 km/h sprint in 4.3 seconds. Meanwhile the newly unveiled AMG EQE 53 boasts of AMG-developed motors that generate 626 hp and does 0-100 Km/h under 3.5 seconds. Another difference between the 43 and 53 models is that the AMG EQE 53 also gets an optional AMG Dynamic Plus package that delivers a whopping 687 hp and 1,000 Nm of peak torque and finishes the 0-100 km/h sprint in under 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 238 km/h. The EQE 53 comes with a claimed range of 444-518 km and even though Mercedes have not disclosed any information regarding the pricing, the AMG EQE 53 is expected to cost more than £100,000 (₹ 1.01 crore approximately)

The AMG EQE comes with a stiffer air suspension in contrast to its standard counterpart. Mercedes have also provided ceramic brakes as an option which will do a better job of reining in the two-and-a-half-ton super saloon. It will also have more of an athletic stance compared to the AMG EQS as the AMG EQE comes with a staggered set-up with fatter tyres at the rear.

Mercedes have said that they managed to reduce the cobalt content in the 328-volt battery by around 10 per cent which will help reduce costs and increase affordability. Mercedes also stated that they’ve configured the battery for AMG specifications with the Sport and Sport Plus modes focusing on performance and the Comfort mode focusing on operating range. The AMG EQE will rival the likes of the Tesla Model 3, BMW i4 M50 and maybe even the Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan once it’s launched in 2023.
