How do you like the technology of the EQE SUV?

It’s Hyperscreen season at Mercedes. Like other electric cars of the brand, the EQE SUV offers a 56-inch so-called Hyperscreen, which combines three digital displays in one — the driver’s screen, the central touchscreen and the touchscreen in front of the front passenger. We were impressed by the sheer breadth of information available through the screens, which are encased in a single piece of glass that stretches from one end of the car to the other.

However, Hyperscreen can be overwhelming. And besides, the standard touch screen itself is not slouched. The standard touchscreen is a 12.8-inch unit, and both it and the Hyperscreen run the latest version of Mercedes’ MBUX operating system. We rate its high-definition graphics and responsiveness very highly for its class—not to mention the excellent natural language voice controls that can be used to control car functions such as seat adjustment and climate control in addition to radio settings and navigation.

How to store the EQE SUV?

Mercedes says the EQE SUV offers 20.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. That’s less than all competitors in the class, including the Jaguar I-Pace, Audi e-tron and Tesla Model Y — all of which offer 23 cubic feet or more. Even the smaller Mercedes EQB electric SUV has more cargo space. The rear seats fold down to increase the storage volume to 59 cubic feet, but that still lags behind comparable figures for the Tesla and BMW.

There is also a narrow space under the floor of the cargo area where the car’s charging cord and emergency equipment are stored. Although you will not find the front. As with other Mercedes electric vehicles, the EQE SUV places electrical components under the hood. In fact, it’s impossible to open it at all without a trip to a Mercedes service center — but there’s really no reason for that.

On the other hand, Mercedes says the EQE will only be able to tow 4,000 pounds if needed.

What about the AMG EQE SUV?

If you want an SUV that runs on electricity, but you love an SUV that runs on adrenaline, the AMG EQE SUV might be for you. Built by Mercedes’ in-house performance division, this version takes the EQE SUV formula and turns it up a notch. Here are the stats: 617 horsepower in standard trim; up to 677 hp. with optional package AMG Dynamic+; 0-60 mph in just 3.3 seconds. Rear-wheel steering is standard for sharper corners.

With the AMG EQE SUV, you also get sportier exterior styling, distinctive styling accents in the interior, specific AMG graphics on the screen, and available front sports seats. Air suspension is standard, and there’s a 48-volt on-board system used specifically to power the highly adjustable suspension settings. If you want, you can choose up to 22-inch wheels and carbon-ceramic brakes. Obviously, we can’t wait to get the AMG EQE SUV closer to its summer 2023 launch.
