Mercedes EQE | Charging Ahead | First Drive Review

Keep in mind, there's an 'E' in its name, which hints at its opulence.


Ride quality , impressive screens , performance


A little too plain , a little too perfect


Given that the real estate of the interior commands significant attention, let's shed some light on it. It's sleek, responsive, and thoughtfully organized, making it user-friendly even for newcomers. You'll quickly commit to memory where each option resides under its respective setting, thanks to the logical arrangement, despite the abundance of choices. Now, for those who miss physical buttons, I'm in your camp as well. Why should we require a minimum of two taps just to adjust the ride height when you're approaching a substantial speed bump, for instance? Wait, where, what…errrrrr..

Now, let's venture into the seats that truly make a difference – the rear bench. Thanks to the expansive glass area, it's akin to traveling in one of those iconic vista dome trains. And amidst the breathtaking beauty of the Kashmir surroundings, the experience becomes even more delightful. Contrary to what the exterior might imply, there's an abundance of space, and the seats provide excellent support, akin to proper, comforting armchairs. Planning long-distance chauffeur-driven journeys? You're in for a treat, my friend.
