2024 Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV Debuts Alongside Hi-Po AMG Variant

Mercedes SUVs have been popular with luxury shoppers for decades and there’s no reason it should change as the world switches to electric vehicles. Indeed, top-tier motorcyclists have been part of Mercedes-Benz’s electrification strategy from the very beginning, as the GLC-based EQC SUV was one of the company’s first long-range electric vehicles.

As such, no one should be surprised when the automaker strips the silk sheets from its all-new electric vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV. As the name suggests, it’s a crossover variant of the EQE sedan, based on the same EVA2 architecture that underpins that model, as well as the larger EQS sedan and EQS SUV. Available in four models – the mainstream EQE 350+, 350 4Matic and 500 plus the Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV – the electric crossover will be built at the same plant in Alabama as the larger EQS SUV. Coincidentally, this means that the US market will be the first to welcome sport-ute when it launches early next year.

But when it arrives, it will have to clash with the eco-chic Tesla Model Y, the new BMW iX and the upcoming Audi E-Tron. It’s fierce competition, even for an SUV that bears the famous three-pointed star. At least the Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV has the hardware to make its case.
