Hopefully not updating with less equipment due to chips! If you open this page in chrome it will likely offer to translate for you (probably has more options than UK version where options come more packaged together)

Well the configurator is back on line with the AMG versions offered and the 350+ removed and replaced with the 300 but still no rear wheel steering that is offered everywhere else except UK. Also I notice that the 300 version specification shows a slower 0-60 time of 7.3S where it was 6.4S for the 350+............. slowly losing interest in purchasing the EQE after the initial excitement.

There are a very small number brand new 350 with immediate delivery on Autotrader right now. I suspect insurance cost / group goes up for 300 vs 350 vs vs 400 vs 450 vs 580 vs 53. Hopefully more options will become available including rear wheel steer in UK not just for 53 at the moment. Mercedes is considering allow direct-to-factory orders, bypassing local dealer strategy, which might increase model options for specific markets, not sure. It might be worth asking for preferred spec to be purchased by extra special order, though this may require extra special circumstance

Only an option in AMG versions for now, in UK among other markets
Just got an email today about allocations here in the USA. I'm going to see if the hypersceeen Is available, I don't want the AMG version. I'm deciding between this, Polestar 3, and kia Ev9 but want something soon especially before the new tax credit comes about. So I'll get the EQE and if I'll like it keep it or trade it in later when one of the SUVs are available.

That being said I'm only interested if they have the hypersceeen, otherwise I'll just wait.

Upcoming EQE SUV should be the most luxury of those. Hopefully comes with level 3 self-driving hardware without needing to buy AMG.

I'm good on that, don't like the look at all. Polestar and ev9 got all the features I need and more especially for the price and looks way better. I Just liked the EQE and that hypersceeen, but on the SUV that rear end is butt ugly. (No pun intended)

So no hypersceeen huh :(

And right on with the polestar. That polestar 3 Is going to be nice. Guess I'm out of the EQE running.
Hyperscreen won't kill EQE for me. I need to sit in all positions, drive, check cargo room, etc. I could compromise on hyperscreen if everything else beats P3 or Polestar gets crazy with their talk of Porsche pricing while MB is noticing Lyriqs in the low 60s and maintaining no more than a reasonable premium.

I imagine you are talking about the EQE SUV, Do you know anything about EQE Sedan allocations, ordering open date, etc. Will be greatly appreciated.

I found the Hyperscreen under "Extras" on the German configurator for the EQE 500 4-Matic. I did not check the other 3xx models. The attachment is for the bottom section of the summary page.

Very nice find, LAZARU5.

The 500 is not in UK and many other country configurators (such as Spain and France).

The other non-AMG (300, 350) don't seem to offer this hyperscreen currently even where 500 does.

Adding the hyperscreen brings price to starting AMG level.
Do the AMG configurations automatically include the Hyperscreen? If not, they will still be a noticeable premium.

500 with hyperscreen option is cheaper in that market than AMG with hyperscreen option.

So, yes, there is a premium for hyperscreen in that market regardless of model
The dealer I just ordered the vehicle from said it was a $6,000 option when it was optional. The product plan is apparently dynamic and fluid pertaining to availability in the chip-deprived world! Not sure I would spend six grand for that, however, even if offered. Actually, I am sure. I wouldn't!
