First of Their Kind

One of the biggest reasons why we love the new fully electric Mercedes models is the fact that these cars have been purposely built entirely from the ground up with the sole intention of merging “progressive mobility with executive-class luxury,” says Eric Rosenthal of Fletcher Jones Motorcars, the nation’s #1 Mercedes-Benz center. Think of the new EQE sedan as a smaller version of the EQS. While both are visually and technologically similar, the EQE has less range and therefore a slightly lower price. The EQB SUV, however, has a completely different look. Mimicking the classic Mercedes-Benz SUV model, the EQB is more traditional and loaded with futuristic technologies. It’s also at a lower price point and, of course, spacious.

Unparalleled Range

With gas prices soaring, many are starting to consider electric over gas-fueled vehicles, which is just another reason to take a peek at Mercedes-Benz newest electric models. The recently released EQS maintains an incredible range of 478 miles when fully charged. Although you might have to settle for less range with the EQB (about 260 miles per charge), the modern and sleek design of this luxe vehicle makes up for it. But if you’re searching for something in between, look no further than the EQE—it has a driving range of around 300 miles per charge. And with over 500,000 Me Charge stations located across 31 countries, Mercedes-Benz has the densest charging network available.

High-Tech Displays/Screen

High-tech displays and screens may be the new norm for the luxury car industry, but nothing matches the efficient and modern technology of the Mercedes-Benz MBUX Hyperscreen. In each model, the dash features three displays neatly integrated under a gorgeous, 56-inch curved glass screen, which is one of the largest internal displays to date. “Offering a door-to-door display, it is the next generation of driver and passenger engagement,” says Rosenthal. Both the EQS and EQE have wider and larger displays and touchscreen functions, making them a tech-lover’s dream car. The EQB is more traditional and has a smaller display with a touchpad controller. While each of these high-tech displays is sophisticated and avant-garde, their ultramodern technologies take the cake.

To go with the dazzling displays, the EQS, EQB and EQE are all issued with Level 3 autonomous driving technology—one of the few autopilot systems that do not require continuous driver supervision—a feat that virtually no other electric vehicle can claim. Additionally, each model adopts many coveted bells and whistles that most electric cars don’t have, such as augmented reality displays, adjustable regenerative braking and rear-axle steering, making these models the most technically proficient cars on the market. While each model may have the most updated multimedia systems available, each vehicle has different price points. The EQS starts at $103K, the EQE starts at $70K and the EQB starts at $55K, making it a more affordable option.

 

Classic Comfort

As mentioned before, each model is equipped with autonomous driving services which allow for a smoother and safe ride. While autonomous driving services are not uncommon in the electric vehicle market, Level 3 autonomous driving is currently the world’s most advanced autopilot system. “It’s a Level 3 ADAS that allows you to take your eyes off the road and let the car handle all the driving without continual supervision,” says Rosenthal. The EQS, EQB and EQE all have Level 3 self-driving tech, making Mercedes-Benz the first manufacturer to put Level 3 semi-autonomous driving in vehicles. In addition, the system uses artificial intelligence to assess situations surrounding the vehicle in run-time, thus ushering in an essential step towards entirely self-driving vehicles.

Safety Features

While the EQS, EQB and EQE may be the most technologically advanced cars on the market, these electric dream cars are also some of the safest. With 350 sensors monitoring each vehicle’s surroundings and state-of-the-art computing systems on board, these models impressively monitor distance, speed, acceleration, lighting conditions, precipitation and temperatures and in real time to keep the driver and passengers as safe as possible. 

With style, safety and modern technology at hand, the EQS, EQB and EQE are the perfect options for your first (or next) electric car.
