2024 Mercedes-Benz EQE All-Wheel Drive Versions Gets More EPA Range

The 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQE sedan’s EPA range and energy consumption ratings recently emerged on the EPA website, revealing interesting changes compared to the 2023 model year.

Mercedes-Benz launched a total of four EQE sedan versions so far, including the rear-wheel drive EQE 350+, all-wheel drive EQE 350 4Matic and EQE 500 4Matic as well as the sporty, all-wheel drive AMG EQE. Their 2023 model-year EPA range varies between 225 and 305 miles, according to the manufacturer; unfortunately, there are still no 2023 model year EPA ratings available on the EPA website.

For the 2024 model year, the Mercedes-Benz EQE has a higher EPA Combined range in all AWD versions, although the RWD version has a slightly lower range.

The biggest surprise is a 38-mile increase in the EQE 500 4Matic version.

2024 Mercedes-Benz EQE EPA range (vs. 2023 model year):

  • EQE 350+: 298 miles (down 7 miles or 2.3% from 305 miles)
  • EQE 350 4Matic: 280 miles (up 20 miles or 7.7% from 260 miles)
  • EQE 500 4Matic: 298 miles (up 38 miles or 14.6% from 260 miles)
  • AMG EQE 4Matic+: 230 miles (up 5 miles or 2.2% from 225 miles)

There are no details yet about the changes between the 2023 and 2024 model year. The Mercedes-Benz online configurator still includes only the 2023 model year, but it seems that there might be some improvements on the AWD powertrain/battery. Previously, the battery in all EQEs had 90.6 kilowatt-hours of energy.
