It’s in the EQE details
The sleek exterior design beautifully reflects the overall Mercedes-EQ family design language of Sensual Purity with generously modeled surfaces, reduced joints and seamless transitions. The overhangs and the front end are kept short, while the rear provides a dynamic accent with a sharp rear spoiler. The black panel grille can be further enhanced with a Mercedes-Benz Star Pattern.
The Premium Trim features a generous level of standard equipment, including the MBUX infotainment system with 12.8″ OLED multimedia touchscreen portrait display and 12.3″ driver display. MBUX continues to evolve with the Zero Layer interface that enables the driver to access commonly used applications directly on the home screen. Electric Intelligence, an EQ-specific navigation system, factors the elements of electric driving, such as available charge, charging stations along the route and driving style into its route calculations and computes the energy demand of the route.
Additionally, topography, ambient temperature, heating and cooling requirements, speed and traffic are all taken into account, as well as charging station availability, capacity and payment functions. Active Range Monitoring ensures the driver reaches the destination safely, even if they miss a charging stop, by displaying a checkered flag in the speedometer showing the maximum speed to reach the destination.
