In September, Mercedes presented the electric EQE, a hefty limousine of almost five meters and an electric motor with a power of almost 300 hp and a range of up to 660 kilometers. Today, the German automaker announced the arrival of two AMG versions of the EQE; the Mercedes-AMG EQE 43 4MATIC and the EQE 53 4MATIC. The news of these two models is of course mainly (read: only) in the performance specifications. They are not AMG models for nothing.

Up to almost 700 hp, 1000 Nm
The Mercedes-AMG EQE 43 4MATIC is the ‘entry-level’ model with an output of 476 hp and a maximum torque of 858 Nm. Good for an acceleration from 0-100 in 4.2 seconds. The maximum power is only available when the battery is at least 50 percent charged.

The EQE 53 is available in two versions, with and without the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS Package. Without that package, this car delivers 626 hp (950 Nm). With the package you get an additional 61 hp and 50 Nm (687 hp / 1000 Nm). Again, the maximum power is not always available. For both versions of the EQE 53, the battery must be at least 70 percent charged. If so, this monster accelerates from 0-100 in 3.5 (without PLUS pack) and 3.3 seconds.

less range
Of course, all that extra power also has an impact on the range. Where the standard version of the EQE, on paper, could reach 660 kilometers on a single battery charge, the situation is slightly different for the AMG models. The EQE 43 4MATIC and EQE 53 4MATIC have a range of 444 to 518 kilometers according to Mercedes. For this they are equipped with a new 90.6 kWh battery. Charging is possible with a maximum of 170 kW. Of course, the range also depends on the driving style, weather and traffic situation.

AMG gadgets
Both EQE AMGs also have the necessary AMG (racing) gadgets on board, such as the AMG 4MATIC variable all-wheel drive drive and AMG RIDE CONTOL+ air suspension with adaptive and adjustable damping. To ensure that the AMG EQEs come to a stop in time when necessary, they are fitted with AMG high-performance brakes with ceramic discs.
