The EQE has a slightly shorter wheelbase and more-recessed flanks than the top-of-the-line EQS sedan, which went on sale last summer. The EQE's exterior dimensions are comparable to those of the CLS midsize coupe, while the interior is roomier than the traditional E-Class, Mercedes said.
The AMG EQE continues Mercedes' one-bow line and cab-forward design language, embellished at the front with an AMG-specific black panel grille with hot-stamped vertical struts in chrome, integrated Mercedes star and AMG lettering. The headlamps feature a specific AMG projection when opening and closing the vehicle. The front bumper, air diffusers and side sill panels are painted in high-gloss black.
The sporty interior features the AMG Performance steering wheel with a flattened bottom, twin-spoke design and integrated buttons. Like the EQS flagship sedan's, the EQE cockpit is anchored by the optional MBUX Hyperscreen.
The 56-inch curved screen stretches the width of the cabin and combines several displays, including the instrument cluster and infotainment screens. The Hyperscreen is part of the next generation of the brand's MBUX infotainment system, which uses artificial intelligence software to serve up information based on the user's past actions and the vehicle's surroundings.
