ATLANTA — AMG presents the 2024 AMG EQE SUV, the next milestone in its electrification strategy – the first all-electric SUV from the performance and sports car brand.

With its spacious interior and performance-oriented drive concept, it is the most versatile electric vehicle in the Mercedes-AMG portfolio. The new model also offers generous space for passengers and luggage.

 Like the AMG EQS Sedan and AMG EQE Sedan, the AMG EQE SUV is based on the electric platform from Mercedes-EQ. Two powerful electric motors and fully variable all-wheel drive form the basis for the hallmark AMG dynamic driving experience.

The Mercedes-AMG developers have also designed many other parameters independently. These include the AMG RIDE CONTROL+ air suspension with Adaptive Damping System, rear-axle steering and AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL – an AMG-specific roll stabilization system. Added to this are the AMG SOUND EXPERIENCE and exterior and interior design.

AMG high-performance brake system

The AMG high-performance brake system with six-piston brake calipers and 16.3 x 1.3 inch (415 x 33 mm) brake discs at the front and single-piston brake calipers and 14.9 x 0.9 inch (378 x 22 mm) brake discs at the rear offer high levels of fade-resistance and durability.

The optional AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system uses even larger brake discs measuring 17.3 x 1.6 inch (440 x 40 mm) at the front.

Another innovative feature is the i-Booster intelligent electromechanical brake booster. It ensures the brake system efficiently combines electric recuperation with the hydraulic brake. The i-Booster is specially tuned for the AMG brake system to deliver an authentic driving experience.

Intelligent recuperation for efficient energy recovery

The battery can also be charged through efficient energy recovery using recuperation. The recuperation power reaches up to 260 kW3. The driver can adjust the level of recuperation in three stages via switches on the steering wheel and receive situation-optimized support from ECO Assist. Here, one-pedal driving and combined braking to a standstill are possible in recuperation levels D and D-. In DAuto, up to 5 m/s² deceleration is achieved, 3 m/s² of which is due to recuperation and 2 m/s² via the AMG high-performance brake system.
