The countdown until the official unveiling of the Mercedes-Benz EQE electric vehicle may be nearing its end. The car is already getting test-driven on public roads as shown in its latest sighting.
The recent video taken by walkoART shows the prototype covered in zebra camouflage as it is being driven within the vicinity of Nurburgring. The car is most probably undergoing in-city, wet road testing looking at the in-road conditions in the spy shot.
The form and stance of the EQE look almost the same as the recently-unveiled Mercedes-Benz EQS EV. The most noticeable changes in the spied car include a shorter front overhang and sedan-like rear unlike the liftback design of the other.
Although the spy video does not give us a peek at the interior of the EQE, it is expected to carry some of the posh interior elements and tech of the EQS. These include the multi-function steering wheel, and Hyperscreen embedded on the dashboard with the latest version of the MBUX infotainment system.
Information about the powertrain of the EQE is scarce as of the moment, but reports claim that one of its trims will have up to 403 hp and 564 lb-ft of torque. All that power will be directed to an all-wheel-drive system. A suspected Mercedes-AMG EQE variant of the EV was also spotted earlier, which will likely deliver more than 500 hp.
At this rate, the Mercedes-Benz EQE will probably make its world premiere at the IAA in Munich this coming September.
