Mercedes-Benz expects to debut the full-electric EQE large premium sedan in September, CEO Ola Kallenius said.
The smaller sibling to the EQS flagship EV will be the last of four full-electric models that Mercedes rolls out this year.
Under the automaker’s current plans, the EQE will be revealed by Mercedes at the IAA in Munich, which succeeds the biennial IAA previously held in Frankfurt as Germany's biggest automotive showcase.
The EQE will challenge models such as the Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan. It will be built on Mercedes' Electric Vehicle Architecture (EVA), which will debut on the EQS.
EQE production will begin at Mercedes' factory in Bremen, Germany, starting in the second half. It will also be built in Beijing.
There are few other details on the EQE, but its specifications suggest that, like the EQS, it will get a substantially longer range than EVs based on the automaker’s modified combustion engine architectures.
