2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE specs: Horsepower, torque, and 0-60 mph acceleration time
With its AMG-specific electric motors, the 2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE delivers eye-opening specs. It churns out a mighty 617 hp and 701 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with the Dynamic Plus package, the output is even higher, with 677 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque.
For acceleration, the AMG EQE can go from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds for the base model and 3.2 seconds with the Dynamic Plus package. The EV sports sedan can reach an electronically-limited top speed of either 137 or 149 mph.
With electric motors at the front and rear, the AMG EQE is an all-wheel drive car. All AMG EQE models have an air suspension, which is stiffer compared to the standard EQE model.
Driving range, battery, and charging for the 2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE
The 2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE has the same 90.6-kWh battery pack as the standard EQE model. However, with the greater performance demands of the AMG EQE, it will likely have a slightly lower driving range — a little below 300 miles. The electric sports sedan will also have fast-charging capabilities. Mercedes-Benz did not yet release the estimated MPGe fuel economy of the AMG EQE.
2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE: Exterior and Interior design and features
While the 2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE shares much of the same exterior design as the standard EQE model, it has unique wheel and tire combinations.

In addition to providing a more athletic look, the staggered tires should enhance the cornering performance of the AMG EQE. Additionally, the AMG EQE features a larger rear spoiler.
Notable features inside the cabin of the AMG EQE include an AMG-specific digital instrument cluster and AMG-specific seats. Also, Mercedes-Benz will offer a very large infotainment screen for the electric sports sedan, which it calls the Hyperscreen.
