The wait is over. Recently, the first example of a very exciting and important model from Mercedes rolled into Drammen Harbour.
We’re talking about the all-new (and electric) EQE SUV. This is the car that sits between the EQC, which has been on the market for a good number of years already, and the huge EQS SUV.
The Norwegian importer now states that the first customers will receive their cars towards the end of June and that the EQE SUV will be seen on Norwegian roads within just a few days.
Broom has driven the EQE SUV in Portugal. See our first impression at the bottom of the case.
– The EQE SUV will be a very important model in the coming years, and we are convinced that customers will be as excited as we are. The new SUV is tailor-made for the Norwegian market, with practical features such as four-wheel drive and trailer coupling as standard, combined with a luxurious and comfortable driving experience, says executive director Thorbjørn Myrhaug of Mercedes-Benz Norway, at the importer Bertel O. Steen.
The EQE SUV has a range of up to 550 kilometers, this applies to the EQE 500 4MATIC.
In Norway, 4MATIC four-wheel drive is standard, and through Torque Shift, the torque is continuously distributed between the front and rear axles.
At fast charging stations, the EQE SUV can be charged with up to 170 kW, and with Electric Intelligence activated when using the navigation, the battery is preheated or cooled as needed. As a result, the temperature at the charging point is in an optimal range for efficient charging.
