In the mode of maximum efficiency of the units, the car is able to accelerate from standstill to the first “hundred” in 3.3 seconds, and its maximum speed is 240 km per hour.
The engineers from Affalterbach also significantly improved the suspension of the electric car, reducing the ground clearance and applying stiffer springs and sport-tuned shock absorbers. In addition, the Mercedes-AMG EQE features a fully steerable chassis with steerable rear wheels for added stability at high speeds and increased agility at low speeds.
The electric vehicle has a low-output mode for the units in order to increase the power reserve when their performance is limited to 313 horsepower. Depending on the nature of the ride, the 90.6 kWh battery pack provides an autonomous range ranging from 462 to 533 kilometers.

Global sales of the new Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 4Matic+ will begin before the end of 2022. Prices for the sports electric car will be announced later.
