If you don't want a full-fat AMG product, the EQE500 could hit that sweet spot.
Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that the EQE500 will come to the US.
It will situate itself between the base EQE350 and the hi-po AMG EQE.
The EQE500 will pick up a number of additions that give the car a little boost over its base-model brethren.
While the EQE350 offers a single motor in rear-wheel-drive configuration, the EQE500 will instead place one electric motor on each axle.
This gives the car all-wheel drive, and it also boosts power output from 288 horsepower to 402.
The torque figure is still TBA, but considering the EQE350's single motor produces 391 pound-feet of torque, the EQE500 should feel pretty beefy.
The 0-to-60-mph time drops from 6.2 seconds to 5.2, as well.
The battery still measures 90.6 kilowatt-hours, with DC fast charging time remaining at 32 minutes at 170 kilowatts.
Interestingly enough, the EQE500 also carries the same 410-mile range estimate as the EQE350, but that's by the generous European WLTP standard. Expect lower EPA figures.
