A host of high-tech features
DIGITAL LIGHT headlamp technology (optional equipment) enables innovative functions, such as the projection of auxiliary markings or warning symbols onto the road. Another equipment highlight is ENERGIZING AIR CONTROL Plus. A HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter cleans the incoming outside air at its very high filtration level. ENERGIZING COMFORT links together various comfort systems in the vehicle. The individual ENERGIZING COMFORT programs enable a special feel-good program depending on the mood or needs of the customer. This enhances physical comfort and performance while driving and during a break. Dolby Atmos®, part of the standard Burmester® 3D Sound System, takes the audio experience in the EQE SUV to a new level.
Distinctive purpose design
The proportions of the EQE SUV combine function and aesthetics with the sporty character of the SUV. The new model, with its unmistakable purpose design, marks a turning point in its class. The overhangs and the front-end assembly have been kept compact. The wheels vary in sizes from 19 to 21 inches and are positioned flush with the outer edge of the body and lend a commanding stance.
A great deal of aerodynamic fine tuning
The EQE SUV shares some aerodynamic measures with its model brothers. The underbody with its numerous aerodynamic details plays a central role in a very good Cd value, which was achieved despite the large load volume and short rear overhang. But the dimensional concept with the flat windshield, sweeping roof line and indents were also important factors.
High level of passive safety
The principles of Integral Safety apply regardless of the type of drive system. Like all other Mercedes-Benz models, the EQS SUV therefore has a rigid passenger cell, special deformation zones and modern restraint systems. The EQE SUV can detect whether the rear seats are actually occupied. If a passenger in the rear is not wearing a seat belt, the driver receives a specific warning. The occupant presence reminder can indicate children who may have been overlooked in the rear of the vehicle. In vehicles for Europe, Australia, New Zealand, USA, and Canada, this system is on board as standard.
CO2-neutral production as part of the eco-balance
Production of the EQE SUV will start at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa (USA) in December. The battery factory in nearby Bibb County supplies the batteries for this model as well as for the EQS SUV. Since this year, all of Mercedes-Benz’s own passenger car and van plants worldwide have achieved CO2-neutral production as part of their eco-balance – including the two Mercedes-Benz plants in Alabama.
