Mercedes-Benz is expanding its electric vehicle lineup with high-performance models of the EQE full-electric midsize sedan under the Mercedes-AMG brand.
There will be two versions, the EQE 43 4MATIC with an output of 350 kilowatts (469 hp), and the 53 4MATIC+, with up to 505 kw (677 hp). Both models have dual electric motors, all-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering, along with other AMG performance and trim enhancements, Mercedes said in a news release Wednesday.
The automaker did not release prices or say when the models would be available. The EQE, in non-AMG form, will launch globally starting in the middle of this year.
Mercedes-Benz is taking a dual-pronged strategy to electrify the performance subbrand — with plug-in hybrids and all-electric models — as the luxury automaker targets lower emissions.
