It is being speculated that this new electric model will be smaller in comparison to the EQS sedan. The teaser posted on the brand's Facebook page does not reveal any detail other than the shot of the reflection of the EQE car with a full-width LED light bar. This design is similar to that of EQS and if noticed carefully, one can also find an EQE 350 badge. The previous teasers by the automaker have given the brand's followers an idea of the new hyper screen layout. This feature is one of the highlights of the car as it combines three display screens under a single piece of glass.
The recently unveiled GT 63 S E Performance will also make its grand appearance at the auto show. Claimed as the most powerful car, this is the first sport plug-in hybrid model from the luxury automaker. It is a four-door coupe that boasts a new steering wheel.
