The new Mercedes-Benz EQE is now on sale in Ireland

The new Mercedes-Benz EQE has arrived in Ireland and goes on sale priced from €85,980.

The EQE is the latest model to launch here from the Mercedes EQ brand of electric vehicles. The new electric business saloon from Mercedes-Benz is built on electric architecture developed specifically for electric vehicles that also underpins the larger EQS.

Available in numerous styling and specifications lines, the new Mercedes-Benz EQE 350+ version is expected to be of most interest to the Irish market. Priced from €85,980, the EQE 350’s battery has a usable energy content of 90 kWh, combined electrical consumption rated at 22.5-19.7 kWh/100 km, and 215 kW of power. Range is given up to 654km (WLTP).

At launch, there will also be the AMG EQE 43 with 350 kW of power and priced at €120,180.

Coming later will be a EQE 500 (300kW) and AMG EQE 53 (with up to 505kW), both equipped with 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

Slightly shorter than EQS in terms of overall length, EQE is said to be comparable to the CLS in terms of its outer dimensions and visual appeal. Its aerodynamic design is reflected in sculpted surfaces. Other features include flush mounted 19 to 21-inch wheels, short front
overhangs, and sharp rear spoiler.

Inside, the EQE has been designed for a spacious executive interior, with an overall boot capacity of 430 litres. Interior design and equipment levels are heavily influenced by the larger EQS, including the availability of the MBUX ‘Hyperscreen’, automatic comfort doors and rear-axle steering.

Ciaran Allen, sales manager for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars in Ireland, said:

“Amongst dealers and customers, initial reaction to the coming of EQE has been extremely positive. We are confident EQE will be another electric powered winner as motorists convert to more eco-friendly motoring in ever increasing numbers.”

The new EQE will join the recently launched Mercedes-Benz EQS, as well as the brand’s range of electric SUVs including the EQA, EQB, EQC and EQV.
