The new EQE: the equipment features

Sep 5, 2021

As a base model, the EQE already has the Electric Art interior. It is also available with AMG Line exterior and AMG Line interior as well as Electric Art exterior. Further individualisation is possible with numerous optional extras, three examples are given below.

  • As an option, the EQE has automatic comfort doors at the front. When the driver approaches the car, first of all the door handles extend. As the driver approaches further, the driver's door opens automatically. With one-touch operation, the automatic comfort doors can be closed conveniently and with little effort. In addition, the driver's door closes automatically when the brake pedal is depressed. The sensors on the underside of the doors and sensors of the parking assistance systems are used for obstacle detection. The comfort doors are linked to the Blind Spot Assist feature. This provides additional safety.
  • The DIGITAL LIGHT headlamp technology (optional extra) has a light module in each headlamp with three extremely bright LEDs whose light is refracted and directed with the help of 1.3 million micro mirrors. The resolution is therefore more than 2.6 million pixels per vehicle. This allows highly precise light distribution. High Beam Assist is highly accurate when masking out oncoming traffic or traffic signs. Light/shadow graduations and the light distribution of all the other adaptive light functions are also realised with considerably more precision, optimising illumination by e.g. fog light, motorway light or city light.
  • The optional Burmester® surround sound system is a prerequisite for experiencing the specially designed Sound Experience with the two soundscapes Silver Waves and Vivid Flux (see separate chapter). The high-end audio system with 15 speakers, 15 separate amplifier channels and a system output of 710 watts offers many more refinements. These include the three-dimensional surround sound, a personal sound setup, settings focused on individual areas of the interior, as well as the classy design of the speakers with grilles made of metal and Burmester® lettering. MBUX Entertainment is included and enables seamless operation of streaming services via the central display, the steering wheel or the "Hey Mercedes" voice assistant.
