Mercedes-AMG continues to set the bar for high-performance Teutonic plugins with this 677 HP AWD monster machine!
Following in the footsteps tire tracks of the immensely capable EQE sedan, the new 677 HP electric Mercedes SUV with a motor at the front and rear axle features fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive, which optimally transmits the drive power to the road in all driving conditions. Output ranges from a tire-shredding 617 HP to an even more rubber-abusive 677 HP with the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS Package with Boost function.
“The AMG EQE SUV is another milestone in our Future of Driving Performance. The new model is our first all‑electric SUV. And, after the AMG EQS and EQE Sedan models, this is already the third performance model that we have been able to realize as a derivative on the Mercedes-EQ electric platform. With its variable interior and high-performance all-wheel drive, it is Mercedes-AMG’s most versatile electric vehicle. A real all-rounder,” says Philipp Schiemer, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. “A real AMG!”
The new EQE SUV is about more than just horsepower and 0-60 times, however. To Schiemer’s credit, when he says this is a “real” AMG, he means it.
Case in point: in place of conventional anti-roll bars, the active roll stabilization in the AMG EQE SUV compensates body movements electromechanically. For this purpose, the anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles are divided into two parts. In the center is an electromechanical actuator integrated with a three-stage planetary gear. If the road surface is uneven, the actuator actively separates the stabilizer halves, which increases ride comfort. During dynamic driving, the halves join together and are twisted against each other. This significantly reduces rolling movements. In order to meet the high performance requirements of Mercedes-AMG.
“The compact format of the EQE SUV, the short wheelbase and the performance-oriented drive concept form the perfect starting point for realizing an agile, highly emotional and luxurious driving experience with our AMG-specific solutions,” says Jochen Hermann, Chief Technical Officer of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. “This particularly applies to the drive system, suspension, brakes and sound. It ensures that our customers can look forward to the Driving Performance that is a hallmark of our brand.”
