The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE arrives in Australia

The Mercedes-Benz electric revolution is in progress.

The German brand has launched its new electric sedan, the EQE, in Australia. The EQE is the brand’s sixth electric vehicle and has a special knack.

The EQE is one of the world’s most aerodynamic vehicles with a drag coefficient of 0.22, and it’s right up there with supersonic fighter jets. The only car to beat the EQE is its big brother, the EQS.

Aerodynamics is very important for electric cars because the easier the car passes through the air the less energy it uses going, which helps improve driving range.

Mercedes-Benz launches the EQE in Australia in three variants: the EQE 300, the 350 and the performance-focused AMG 53.

Prices start at $134,900 (before on-road costs) for the 300, rising to $154,900 for the 350 and going up to $214,900 for the AMG version.

All models promise some driving thrills, too.

Version 300 is powered by an electric motor on the rear axle developing 180 kW and 550 Nm. It can reach 100 km/h from standstill in 7.3 seconds.

It is equipped with a large 89 kWh battery with a driving range of up to 626 km.

The EQE 350 has a second motor mounted on the front axle to provide all-wheel drive and deliver 215 kW and 765 Nm of power.

The extra grunt helps bring its 0-100 km/h time down to 6.3 seconds but also reduces the driving range to 590 km.

If you are looking for super fast speed, the AMG 53 is the car for you.

Mercedes-Benz has ramped up its performance by squeezing 460 kW and 950 Nm from its two engines that help propel it to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, making it one of the fastest cars in the Benz range and comparable to its old-school V8-powered muscle cars. with energy.

All versions come with an extensive list of safety equipment that includes 10 airbags, blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, and front and rear automatic braking.

The center screen houses a futuristic finger scanner for selecting and uploading individual profiles.

Its 20-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels add some presence on the road and the high-quality versions benefit from AMG design cues.

Mercedes-Benz covers all of its vehicles with a five-year/unlimited km warranty and the battery is guaranteed for 10 years or 250,000 km.
