Mercedes has confirmed prices for its new all-electric SUV -  the EQE SUV - which is now available to order in Britain from £90,560, pricing the newcomer into some seriously lofty territory. 

That price is for the AMG 350 4MATIC version of the brand’s new BMW iX and Audi Q8 e-tron rival, while the more powerful 500 4MATIC variant wears a price tag of £108,760. 

Kicking things off, the 350 in AMG Line includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and a 12.8-inch central infotainment screen, plus full leather upholstery. Stepping up to the £99,260 AMG Line Premium version introduces augmented reality navigation. This version can also be ordered with the £7,995 MBUX Hyperscreen system - a display spanning the width of the entire dashboard.

Further versions include the AMG Line Premium Plus, which comes with the Hyperscreen setup as standard, as well as a head-up display. 

Despite appearing to be a bigger car than its saloon sibling, the EQE SUV is is more compact with a 90mm shorter wheelbase. Like the EQS, the new EQE sits on a purpose-built electric platform. Mercedes has confirmed that the EQE SUV will come with an 89kWh battery pack (usable), while the 350 4MATIC version has a maximum range of 334 miles. 

The EQE SUV will be offered with different motor options with power outputs ranging from 288bhp to 402bhp. Those wanting more power can opt for an AMG version that will offer 476bhp and a heady 858Nm of torque. However, that performance comes at a cost with Mercedes claiming a much lower WLTP figure of 267 miles for the range-topping AMG model. 

The EQE SUV features the same thermal architecture as the saloon and comes with a heat pump as standard. Waste heat from the electric drive (inverter and electric motor) and the high-voltage battery can be used to heat the interior. This reduces the draw on battery power for the heating system, increasing the range in the process.

The chassis of the new EQE SUV comprises a four-link suspension at the front and an independent multi-link suspension at the rear. Air suspension with adaptive damping will be available as an option from launch. With air suspension, the EQE SUV can be raised by up to 30 millimetres, while a special OFFROAD mode allows the EQE SUV to tackle tougher terrain. A rear axle steering system with a maximum steering angle of 10 degrees is available as an option.

Elsewhere, the EQE SUV’s interior features the usual mix of leather, metal and wood while  the raft of safety includes ATTENTION ASSIST, Active Brake Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Parking Package with reversing camera and Speed Limit Assist.

The EQE SUV also comes with what Mercedes describes as ‘Navigation with Electric Intelligence.’ The inbuilt navigation system plans the fastest and most convenient route including charging stops. It also reacts dynamically to traffic jams or a change in driving style. The system also calculates the estimated charging costs per charging stop. Drivers can also edit the planned routes individually. They can edit the planned routes individually by adding in preferred charging stations along the route or excluding proposed charging stations.
