Mercedes-Benz will reveal its next electric sedan in September. The reveal will mark the third electric vehicle reveal from the brand in just 10 months as the brand ramps up its EV assault.
Mercedes-Benz CEO Ola Kallenius recently confirmed to Automotive News the brand will leverage the IAA in Munich this year to reveal the EQE. The Munich IAA is a replacement for the former Frankfurt Motor Show, assuming large events are happening by September. The EQE is one of the more anticipated Mercedes EQ models.
Like the larger EQS, the EQE will be built on Mercedes’ Electric Vehicle Architecture (EVA). The sedan is expected to be similar in size to the E Class and will be Mercedes’ direct competitor to the Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan. Mercedes has repeatedly stated the upcoming EQS will be in a league of its own in terms of size with no direct competitors, though the EQS hasn’t been revealed yet either.
Mercedes has been silent on other details surrounding the EQE. One can likely expect to see some iteration of Mercedes’ Hyperscreen dash design that will debut in the EQS. A powerful battery-electric powertrain with over 300 miles of range is also a given at this point. Production of the EQE will commence later this year in Bremen, Germany.
The luxury brand’s focus on electrification started with the reveal of the EQA earlier this year. The EQA will be followed soon by the EQS, then the now-confirmed EQE.
