The front headlights and grille are integrated, and the “meteor shower” intelligent digital headlights offer up to 2.6 million lighting pixels, which is quite impressive. The low-drag wheel design and door-mounted rearview mirrors also contribute to the vehicle’s aerodynamics, making it even more efficient.

To meet the demands of the Chinese market, the EQE is equipped with ten exclusive features, including a gentleman function and comfortable rear headrests, demonstrating Mercedes-Benz’s dedication to Chinese consumers. The 3030mm long wheelbase, standard 4MATIC all-wheel drive system, and 10-degree rear-wheel steering provide excellent handling and stability. And the outstanding NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) performance and HEPA high-efficiency air filtration system elevate the driving experience to a new level, creating a peaceful and luxurious space inside the vehicle.
The EQE SUV offers four driving technologies, including D AUTO intelligent energy recovery, dual motor intelligent torque distribution, off-road mode with a top speed of upto 110 km/h, and steep slope descent with a minimum speed of 2 km/h.

And with a wind resistance coefficient as low as 0.25cd, the EQE offers high-speed stability and energy efficiency, making it a reliable and convenient option for drivers.
But safety is always a top priority, and the EQE doesn’t skimp on that. It comes equipped with a proactive safety system and seat pulse side collision protection, providing drivers with comprehensive safety assurance. These advanced safety technologies not only improve the safety of drivers and passengers but also demonstrate Mercedes-Benz’s continuous innovation and leading position in vehicle safety.
