In terms of proportions, the EQE is slightly smaller than the EQS. This isn’t immediately obvious in the spy shots, but there are some subtle design changes that set the EQE apart including a third brake light located on the trunk. The EQE also has a traditional trunk compared to the EQS, which has a liftback design. Like the EQS, the EQE will be underpinned by Mercedes’ dedicated electric MEA platform, allowing it to have more cabin space than the combustion-powered E-Class.
We don’t get a look inside the cabin so it remains to be seen if the massive 55-inch Hyperscreen will be offered in the EQE, but we suspect it will be reserved for the flagship EQS. As standard, the EQE will be equipped with a fully digital instrument cluster and a large portrait touchscreen.
