If anyone is looking, Mercedes Benz of Melbourne (Florida) has another one on the lot that I don't believe has been claimed. If interested, I'll shoot you my SA's info. He's great and this is the 3rd car we've bought from him.
I can get the m/kWh but not sure how useful it will be with 45 miles on the odometer. 🙂 We had Nappa leather in my E300 and wife’s GLE350 and the MB Tex is definitely softer. This car does not have RWS. It drives nicely - I think it’s smoother than the GLE we had and had a stable feel. I’m not sure agility will be its strong suit but it will be sufficient for it size and weight.Just had Mercedes France contact me asking if I want a test drive am looking forward to it. Wish the cars were as cheap here! Would be interested in the mile per kWh figure and how agile it feels, quick scan of the list I cannot see if it has the steering rear wheels?
I prefer the mb tex to nappa leather the last car I had with leather (e class) it scratched and marked far to easily the mb tex wears very well.
Am a little concerned as the price over the EQC is approaching 30k more which is a huge jump. The deal on the EQC was excellent. I expect to pay more for sure as it is a class above but 30k maybe too much for me I will see how the numbers turn out. The car exceeds the gov level for assistance to purchase here so there will be no EV rebate but that was the same with the EQC. At the end of the day I see cars and leases as being more and more like printers the car becomes a tad immaterial all the money is made on the finance and the future value in the batteries plus monthly subscriptions on the apps etc for the secondhand market.If anyone is wondering about financing, we are leasing this one to replace the lease on the GLE. $7500 pass-through credit for the EV rebate and $3000 in equity from the lease - would have been more 6-8-12 months ago but I'm glad the used market hasn't COMPLETELY softened. We considered an EQS and they were offering more incentives but still a little too rich for our blood in the end.
Hmm, there is one in the storage area of the EQE SUV we might lease. I checked specifically.Something worth noting is MB does not give you any type of charger, not even a 110v rescue charger with the car.
Just checked... nothing there but there is a cool tire inflator.Hmm, there is one in the storage area of the EQE SUV we might lease. I checked specifically.
Oh, you're right. The build is really nice. Have to decide by Monday.I think because your build sheet has one included for $250. Nice build, BTW. Pretty similar to ours but you got the fancy lights.
The EQC isn't available in the US so I can't compare the size. This seems to be between the GLE and GLC, if that helps. And the EQS is considerably bigger which is deceiving because it doesn't look that much bigger until they're side by side. Build quality is what I'd expect from MB - which is a good thing. Our GLE was built in Alabama (I believe) and it was great, minus a few 1st-year update issues. The vehicle also exceeds the limits here if purchasing but the dealers pass the rebate to the customer if leasing. I guess they get a kick back from Uncle Sam.Am a little concerned as the price over the EQC is approaching 30k more which is a huge jump. The deal on the EQC was excellent.

Detail in the handles is nice. What is the build quality like? All my cars have been German built and I am a bit concerned as the early SUV like the ML also built in Alabama had a terrible reputation here in europe for build quality.
We’ve been looking to go with EV but waiting for the right one without having to wait years for the manufacturer to complete development. We thought we were on the right track with Cadillac but no such luck. I’ve got a Taycan coming soon - hopefully this week. AFAIK, it’s been delivered to the port and waiting to get on a truck to get to to my dealer. Once that comes in, we’ll be all EV except for a classic truck for our daughter.Enjoy I could never go back to an ICE now electric cars do deliver that luxury Mercedes ride and I think although Mercedes were late to the market they have stolen a March on some of their competitors by delivering a fully grown up product that delivers on customer’s expectation.
Congrats on getting this car.We traded-in our 2020 GLE350 for this EQE 350+. I haven't driven it, yet, as it's my wife's car and we just picked it up. It's Selenite Gray with the Maybach wheels and Neva Gray/Sable Brown MB Tex. I actually like the MB Tex - it's very supple feeling. Let me know if anyone has specific questions or wants me to look at something.

I think the synthesized engine sound can be turned off in the vehicle settings. I wanted to like the Audi Q4 e-tron but the screens, options and driver experience of the EQE SUV is just simply better. We may be pulling the trigger tomorrow.Congrats on getting this car.
I would also like to hear your opinion, as I am interested in the EQE and test-drove one yesterday. I have a leased 2022 Audi e-tron since October 2021. At that time I wanted to switch to electric AND wanted Mercedez since I owned a GLC300 which was the best car I ever had. At that time the EQC wasn't available and there were no Merc EVs around. I started seeing commercials for Audi EVs and decided to go that route.
The e-tron is a great car to drive, smooth and silent. I noticed yesterday that the EQE has a kind of "Synthysized" engine sound which I pointed out to the sales guy, I don't know why Merc would want to do that.
Anyway, as expected the EQE is more comfortable, the seating is great, and the display is miles better than the Audi. The EQE350 I drove had one motor as opposed to my Audi which has two. I might look at the EQE500 next week as it's a dual motor and has more options on it too.
