Mercedes has aggressive plans for the electrification of its lineup, having recently shown two crossover-shaped electric vehicles—the GLC-based EQC and the GLA-based EQA. So it's not too surprising that we've got these spy shots of the yet-to-be-revealed EQE electric sedan. This vehicle will be slightly smaller than an E-class and will sit between the Tesla Model S and Model 3 in size.
The EQE is based on Mercedes's modular MEA architecture, a flat "skateboard" platform that can be adjusted in length for larger or smaller vehicles. The architecture is said to yield more interior space than a gasoline-powered vehicle of the same exterior dimensions. This will also be used for the upcoming EQS electric sedan, which will be sized in line with the flagship S-class.
We're expecting the EQE to be on the road sometime in 2022 after an expected unveiling in at the fall 2021 Munich auto show.
