Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 evaluation

On lots of levels, the EQE 53 is deeply excellent. Its efficiency feels every bit as major as the numbers recommend: it can provide the sort of forces that transfer internal organs and cause passengers to screech involuntarily.

Peak power is limited in less aggressive vibrant modes, to 308bhp in Slippery, 493bhp in Convenience and 555bhp in Sport. The full 617bhp is available just in Sport+, with the overboost to 677bhp coming only when utilizing the Race Start launch function. However across the board, it feels extremely quickly.

As with other powerful EVs, efficiency is about action along with pure power. The EQE 53’s accelerator is much better considered as a fader switch for longitudinal g-force than a traditional throttle, since there’s no gap between including pressure and feeling the response. If anything, the EQE 53 makes a point of giving you that 617bhp immediately.

However, haven’t we seen all of this before? The Porsche Taycan Turbo did it three years earlier and the 1020bhp Tesla Model S Plaid has just rendered any other claims of head-scrambling efficiency moot.

And unlike with traditional AMGs, there’s no V8 engine noise to keep you captivated. The engineers should have felt the EQE required something, due to the fact that they appeared proudest of the sound symposer system that plays a produced noise both internally and externally through speakers, the sound changing in volume and pitch according to the vehicle’s speed and the position of the accelerator. It even plays an idlelike throb when the cars and truck is fixed.

The noise isn’t trying to replicate an engine but has numerous futuristic elements instead. I reckon I heard both lightsabers and jet engines at different phases. The problem for me is that it simply does not truly work. Just like other synthetic symposers, it feels like a gimmick, obviously phony.
