At the Munich Motor Show 2021 , Mercedes had finally unveiled the new EQE electric sedan, a highly anticipated model that will be able to count on an autonomy of up to 660 km according to the WLTP cycle. As we know, in the programs of the German manufacturer there & # 39; & egrave; also a SUV version of this model that will go; alongside the EQS SUV that we saw for the first time at the show in the Maybach variant.

The EQE SUV & egrave; has now been spied on the street after a long time not showing up. The car still looks disguised but it is however, it is possible to closely observe some details of its design. You can & ograve; note how the body has the final shapes. The taillights poking out of the camouflage also appear to be the ones that will be present on the production car. The front grille is hidden by a simple black cover and this could suggest that Mercedes is experimenting with the vehicle's sensors used for driving assistance systems.

As with the EQE sedan, also the SUV version features retractable door handles to improve aerodynamics. From the spy photos you can also see the alloy wheels with a very particular design, probably thought to optimize aerodynamics and improve efficiency and fuel consumption. The pictures make the car look more compact than it should actually be; since the sedan is almost 5 meters long.

The spy photos do not show the interior but there should be no major differences with those of the sedan. Therefore, we will have not only a lot of luxury but also a rich technological equipment with the presence of the latest generation of the MBUX infotainment system. Like the EQE, the SUV version also rests on the new EVA platform designed only for electric vehicles. On the powertrain front, Mercedes will certainly propose & agrave; this model both in the version with single engine and in the variant with double electric engine. In the second case it will be; All-wheel drive is also available.

The version with a single engine should deliver 215 kW (292 hp) and 530 Nm of torque (like the sedan). The details of the dual engine powertrain are not known but it will definitely offer; more power. The EQE can & ograve; count on a 90 kWh battery that will probably equip & agrave; also the SUV version. Obviously, given the larger dimensions, the autonomy of this model will be; slightly lower.
