2024 Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV now available at U.S. dealerships

  • First Mercedes-AMG electric SUV in the U.S. updated
  • Features the MBUX Hyperscreen
  • Accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds
  • Priced from USD 109,300 (excl. USD 1,150 destination charge)

The 2024 Mercedes EQE SUV has two AMG variants in the global market — 43 4MATIC and 53 4MATIC+, but only the latter is available in the U.S. market. It’s for this reason that the AMG offering does not have alphanumeric branding. The 2024 Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV has arrived at U.S. dealerships and directly competes with the Tesla Model X Plaid.

Design & Interior

The 2024 Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV has only subtle visual differences from the 2024 Mercedes EQE SUV. Yet, when I saw it in person, I immediately recognized it from its special faux radiator grille with chrome-finished, hot-stamped vertical struts and AMG inscription. I noticed that while the regular SUV has a three-pointed star logo on the hood, it featured an AMG emblem.

The body-colored wheel arch claddings and the 21-inch wheels in an exclusive design further help it stand out. 22-inch wheels are also available, but in my opinion, these black-colored 21 inchers look the best, and being smaller, they should offer a better ride quality.

Interior

Inside, the main talking point of the 2024 Mercedes EQE SUV is the MBUX Hyperscreen, a glass panel spanning the width of the dashboard and combining three displays—a 12.3″ digital instrument cluster, a 17.7″ infotainment touchscreen, and a 12.3″ passenger touchscreen—under it such that they look like one seamless ultrawide display. Shaped like a wave, it appears to be floating on the dashboard, and it makes the car look futuristic. My favorite interior feature of this electric SUV is the AMG Performance steering wheel, though, which comes attached to a power-adjustable column.

I noticed that the dashboard and front door panels also blend as if they’re part of one continuous structure, and this wraparound effect gave me a cocooned feeling. I liked the combination of Black and Sable Brown colors in the cabin, with the former covering most of the interior for a sporty look and the latter adding a dash of sophistication. AMG-specific functions in the displays and a dedicated AMG Dynamic Select button in the center console are also among the interior highlights.

The front seats feature AMG branding and have heavy bolstering for enhanced supportiveness. They feature 12-way power adjustment, including cushion length, as well as a 4-position memory function. Obviously, they include heating and ventilation, too. I’m six feet tall, and from my experience, I can say that the headroom is okay and the under-thigh support is adequate. As expected, the materials are of top-notch quality.

In the back, the legroom, knee room, and headroom were sufficient. Thanks to the big window, vent glass, and quarter glass, I found the exterior visibility to be great.

Specifications

The 2024 Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV sports two electric motors, one at each axle, producing 617 hp and 701 lb.-ft. of torque. It has a top speed of 137 mph. An AMG Dynamic Plus Package option raises the combined power and total torque to 677 hp and 738 lb.-ft., respectively. However, these increments are temporary, being available through a boost function. They allow the EV to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. The top speed is 137 mph, and it can be raised to 149 mph with the AMG Dynamic Plus Package, which adds USD 4,000 to the price.

A 90.6 kWh battery pack consisting of ten modules with 360 lithium-ion pouch cells powers the motors. It supports charging at up to 9.6 kW (AC)/170 kW (DC). Charging from 10 to 100% SoC using an AC charger takes as little as 10.75 hours. Using a DC charger, it’s possible to go up from 10 to 80% SoC in 32 minutes. On a full charge, the Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV delivers an EPA-est. range of 235 miles.

While the 2024 Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV delivers solid performance and offers ample luxury, its low range limits its appeal as an all-rounder.
