Summary


The Mercedes-AMG EQE is a high-performance version of the regular Mercedes-Benz EQE executive saloon, and Mercedes’ second all-electric AMG offering after the larger and more expensive AMG EQS saloon.

Described by Car’s Georg Kacher as AMG’s “most convincing EV effort yet”, the AMG EQE has been praised by the UK motoring media for its combination of comfort and class-leading on-board tech, and its impressive acceleration and agility.

“It’s almost comically fast”, says Top Gear’s Tom Ford, “and it is genuinely noisy, generating the kind of swooshy hums you usually find in sci-fi films.” Keith Adams of Parkers adds that the performance saloon’s ride quality is “top drawer”, while the Driving Electric team commends the EQE for its “cutting-edge” Hyperscreen infotainment.

Malte Büttner of Auto Express adds that the car has “a long range and good charging capability”, but also raises some concerns around material quality of the interior. “Some of the plastics and materials feel very plain”, and this doesn’t match the AMG EQE’s expensive six-figure price tag.

As of February 2024, the Mercedes-AMG EQE holds an impressive New Car Expert Rating of A, with a score of 81%. This is currently one of the highest scores in our Expert Rating Index.

Overall score: 5 stars
Date tested: October 2022
Read the full Euro NCAP review

Adult protection: 95%
Child protection: 91%
Vulnerable road users: 83%
Safety assist: 81%

The Mercedes-AMG EQE shares a full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating with the structurally identical Mercedes-Benz EQE saloon, which was crash tested towards the end of 2022.

Eco rating


Independent economy and emissions ratings from Green NCAP

No eco rating

As of February 2024, the Mercedes-AMG EQE has not been lab tested by Green NCAP.

The Green NCAP programme measures exhaust pollution (which is zero for an electric car) and energy efficiency. Electric cars are much more energy-efficient than combustion cars, so the AMG EQE is likely to score very highly in Green NCAP testing whenever it ever takes place. Check back again soon.
