2024 Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV Gets More EPA Range: Up To 307 Miles

By automotive-mag.com 6 Min Read

The Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV has received a slight upgrade with the 2024 model year and offers 5-10% more EPA driving range than the 2023 model year.

The range boost is partially related to general improvements, although some versions now have a higher-capacity battery.

Initially, there were three regular 2023 EQE SUV versions—a rear-wheel drive 350+ and two all-wheel-drive 350 4Matic and 500 4Matic—all equipped with a 90.6-kilowatt-hour battery. An interesting thing is that in the 2024 model year, the EQE 350+ SUV and EQE 500 4Matic SUV received a more energy-dense battery—96.0 kWh—while the EQE 350 4Matic SUV is stuck with the 90.6-kWh one.

The performance-oriented AMG EQE 4Matic+ SUV was launched for the 2024 model year, and it has a 90.6-kWh battery. We guess that Mercedes-Benz will soon complete the switch to 96-kWh batteries for the entire EQE SUV fleet, just like the EQS SUV switched from 108.4 kWh to 118 kWh.

The move from 90.6 kWh to 96.0 kWh is a 6% increase (5.4 kWh), but because of other improvements applied to the model and the switch from 19-inch to 20-inch wheels, the range changes are different.

The entry-level 2024 EQE 350+ SUV now has 307 miles of EPA Combined range or 10% more than before. It’s the first and only 300+ result for the model. The all-wheel drive 4Matic versions have almost 5% more EPA range:

  • EQE 350+ SUV 20-in (96 kWh): 307 miles (up 28 miles or 10% from 279 miles)
  • EQE 350 4Matic SUV 20-in (90.6 kWh): 265 miles (up 12 miles or 4.7% from 253 miles)
  • EQE 500 4Matic SUV 20-in (96 kWh): 282 miles (up 13 miles or 4.8% from 269 miles)
  • AMG EQE 4Matic+ SUV 21-in (90.6 kWh): 235 miles

Energy consumption, including charging losses, of the 2024 Mercedes EQE 350+ SUV with 20-inch wheels, is estimated at 94 MPGe or about 359 watt-hours per mile (2.8 miles/kWh). This is the most efficient version of the model.

The all-wheel-drive versions of the EQE SUV use 9-10% more energy than the rear-wheel-drive version—almost 400 Wh/mile or 2.5-2.6 miles/kWh.

Of course, the performance-oriented AMG version with the biggest wheels is the least efficient. According to the EPA, it averages 74 MPGe: 455 Wh/mi or 2.2 miles/kWh.

Let’s note that the highway MPGe ratings are usually lower than the combined values. Thus, we estimate the EPA Highway range might be slightly lower by 10-20 miles. However, this is only a rough estimate because the MPGe number includes charging losses.

The 2024 model year versions, equipped with the new 96-kWh battery, have a 0-60 mph acceleration time 0.1 seconds slower than before: 6.4 seconds for the EQE 350+ SUV and 4.7 seconds for the EQE 500 4Matic SUV.

Pricing

Prices of the Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV remain the same as in 2023. The model starts at an MSRP of $77,900 plus a $1,150 destination charge.

Interestingly, the Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV is still not eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit despite being locally produced and some versions being under the $80,000 price cap. If Mercedes-Benz complies with additional battery cell/battery material production requirements, something may change. For now, the incentive potentially might be factored into leasing.
