Tesla model X will be the key rival for the upcoming Mercedes EQE SUV
The all-new Mercedes-Benz EQE electric SUV will be unveiled next year. In the brand’s EQ-badged electric car lineup, the EQE SUV will sit beside the EQE electric sedan.
- EQE will be positioned to take on Tesla Model X
- Based on the EVA2 platform
- Will have multiple output and range options
The EQE SUV will have the newest Mercedes-Benz style cues seen on the newer vehicles, particularly the EQ range, which now encompasses various models starting with the EQA, EQC, EQE, and the EQS sedan at the top of the line.
Mercedes-Benz has been working on the EQE SUV under the internal codename X294. Unlike the existing EQC SUV, which is also offered in India, the new vehicle will be built on the unique electric MEA (or EVA2) platform and will compete with Tesla’s Model X and BMW’s iX3.
Mercedes-Benz has confirmed the EQE in sedan and SUV form, as well as the upcoming EQS SUV, bringing the total number of EQ models to eight. The EQA, EQB, and EQC SUVs, as well as the EQS premium sedan and the EQV van, have already been released. Mercedes has committed to releasing ten entirely electric vehicles by 2025, one of which is the electric EQG off-roader, which was just revealed.
The EQC’s 407hp is projected to be surpassed in terms of power and torque. Moreover, the driving range should be greatly increased. The EQE saloon’s projected range is 600 kilometres, though the SUV’s lower aerodynamic efficiency may limit this. The range of the EQC is currently estimated to be roughly 416 kilometres, depending on specification.
