There is some underfloor storage but it’s too small to hold any of the car’s charge cables, and there’s no frunk or additional storage under the bonnet like you get on a Model S, Porsche Taycan or Audi e-tron GT, either. You can fold the EQE’s rear seats down in a 40:20:40 split, and doing so increases the luggage capacity to 895 litres.

Five-star Euro NCAP rating and standard safety kit are paired with three-year warranty

The EQE was put through Euro NCAP’s battery of crash safety tests in 2022 and came away with the organisation’s full five-star rating, receiving very impressive scores of 95 per cent for adult occupant protection and 91 per cent in the child occupant protection category. It also earned a safety assistance score of 81 per cent, which is not surprising considering the amount of safety tech on board.

Every model gets a reversing camera, LED headlights with headbeam assist and vehicle tracking. AMG Line Premium models come with Mercedes’ Driving Assistance Package, which includes Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist and adaptive cruise control, while pricier models come with the Driving Assistance Plus Package which adds Active Evasive Steering Assist and an exit warning function for when you’re getting out of the car. 


The EQE comes with a three-year/unlimited-mileage warranty, while Mercedes covers the battery pack for 10 years and 155,000 miles. You also get 30 years of pan-European breakdown assistance with every EQE.


Mercedes offers its ServiceCare packages for the EQE which allows you to spread the cost of maintenance for the EQE, and guarantees the price of parts and labour for up to four services and safeguard against any further inflation.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Mercedes EQE has its merits: like a long range and slick infotainment system, but floaty handling, poor visibility and SUV-like driving position count against the German brand’s answer to the Tesla Model S.

The entry-level Mercedes EQE 300 currently starts from just over £74,000 in the UK, while the more powerful EQE 350 starts at over £77,000 and the EQE 53 from AMG is priced at nearly £115,000.

When we drove the EQE 350 in Exclusive Luxury trim in the UK it returned 3.0mi/kWh, which equates to a real-world range of 267 miles, compared to the car’s official range of 342 miles.

The EQE is an all-electric executive saloon, similar in size to the Mercedes E-Class, while the EQS is more of a limousine, so it’s more luxurious and much larger overall. The EQE is also less expensive than the EQS.

Mercedes EQE 300 long-term test

The Mercedes EQE promises much when it comes to electric luxury, but how does it perform when faced with the rigours of day-to-day life? To find out, senior staff writer Jordan Katsianis has been handed the keys for six months. Although it’s still early days during his time with the car, he’s been left a little underwhelmed so far.

Jordan’s first impressions have arguably been tainted by bad luck more than anything else, but he has already suffered two punctures (not helped by the large 21-inch wheels) and a 12-volt battery that keeps dying. The EQE went back to Mercedes for some diagnostics tests, but now it’s back and hopefully Jordan will be able to enjoy some trouble-free motoring. You can read the full long-term test here…
