Mercedes-Benz electric cars are among the most exciting new EVs you can buy or lease right now. The Mercedes-Benz EQC set the bar high when it was launched in 2019, and the premium German brand has since lifted it ever-higher.

Mercedes-Benz electric cars now feature in multiple sectors, from the small SUV class with the Mercedes-Benz EQA, to the large people carrier class with the Mercedes-Benz EQV. There are now almost twice the number of Mercedes-Benz electric car models as Tesla has in its line-up.

There is even now a Mercedes-Benz luxury car alternative to the famous S-Class, called the EQS. This has one of the longest pure electric driving ranges of any car on sale, plus a futuristic interior that’s more than a match for a Tesla Model S.

All Mercedes-Benz electric cars are branded ‘EQ’. The electric alternative to a GLA is the Mercedes-Benz EQA, for example. At the top of the range, there are two variants of the Mercedes-Benz EQS variants: the saloon and the SUV. The latter is an electric alternative to the Mercedes-Benz GLS.

In broad terms, the higher the letter in its name, the larger a Mercedes-Benz electric car is. So, an EQC is larger than an EQA.

Mercedes-Benz has already launched an electric car in almost every segment. In the coming years, many more EVs will be released, all offering a high-quality experience, plentiful driving range and elite levels of performance and refinement.

What’s more, all Mercedes-Benz electric cars come with a Green Charging guarantee. The company promises to feed an equivalent amount of electricity from renewable sources into the grid to compensate for the charging of its EVs. This is to promote the use of renewable electricity.

Today’s range of Mercedes-Benz electric cars already aims to offer something for everyone. Here, we’ll run through the full Mercedes-Benz EQ line-up of EVs, and tell you everything you need to know about each new Mercedes-Benz electric car available to buy or lease.

Mercedes-Benz EQA

Year launched: 2021

Mercedes-Benz EQA Review 2023 front-three quarter
7/10

The EQA is the smallest and most accessible Mercedes-Benz electric car. It is a pure electric alternative to the Mercedes-Benz GLA compact SUV, and measures around 4.4 metres long – roughly the same length as a Volkswagen Golf. Prices start from just over £50,000.

The Mercedes-Benz EQA faces a direct rival in the Audi Q4 e-tron. However, BMW doesn’t currently offer a competitor. Other alternatives include the Volvo XC40 Recharge, Polestar 2 and Volkswagen ID.5.

The Mercedes-Benz EQA is available with three power outputs. The EQA 250+ produces 190PS, the EQA 300 4Matic has 228PS (and four-wheel drive) and the EQA 350 4Matic has 292PS. All three have a 66.5kwh battery. They can use 100kW public rapid chargers, to charge from 10-80 percent capacity in 32 minutes.

The front-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz EQA 250+ has a range of up to 328 miles. The four-wheel-drive EQA 300 4Matic and EQA 350 4Matic see the range dip to a maximum of 267 miles, although they do accelerate much more quickly: the EQA 350 4Matic does 0-62mph in just 6.0 seconds, 2.6 seconds faster than the EQA 250+. All three have a top speed limited to 99mph.

The Mercedes-Benz EQA feels like an authentic premium car, with low noise levels and an effortless experience from behind the wheel. It is roomy for passengers too, and the interior is satisfyingly high-tech, thanks to the firm’s outstanding MBUX infotainment system. We just wish the boot was a bit bigger – 340 litres is little larger than a supermini.

Mercedes-Benz EQB

Year launched: 2022

Mercedes-Benz EQB Review 2023: front dynamic
9/10

The Mercedes-Benz EQB is a rarity amongst electric cars because it can seat seven people, across three rows of seats. It is one of three Mercedes-Benz electric cars that can seat seven, and its practicality is a real USP in this sector.

Priced from around £55,000, the Mercedes-Benz EQB is offered in 228PS EQB 300 4Matic and 292PS EQB 350 4Matic guises. Both are four-wheel drive. They both have a similar electric range, capable of up to 253 miles between charges. This is a little below the class average, but is still a useful distance – and 100kW rapid charge functionality allows the EQB to charge from 10-80 percent in 32 minutes.

With all three rows of seats in place, the boot is on the compact side. But the Mercedes-Benz EQB has 495 litres of space with the third row folded, which expands to 1,710 litres with the middle row also folded. This makes it a really practical electric car.

The Mercedes-Benz EQB is offered in AMG Line and AMG Line Premium trims. The AMG appearance pack gives them a sporty look, with even the basic model featuring 18-inch AMG alloy wheels. However, both models also come with comfort suspension, delivering a supple and family-friendly ride quality.

Mercedes-Benz EQC

Year launched: 2019

Mercedes-Benz EQC Review 2023 right side exterior
7/10

The Mercedes-Benz EQC is the original modern Mercedes-Benz electric car. The large family SUV was launched in 2019, after being previewed by the 2016 Generation EQ concept that helped establish the Mercedes-Benz EQ sub-brand of electric cars.

The Mercedes-Benz EQC is a rival to the Audi e-tron, BMW iX and Jaguar I-Pace. Prices start from around £65,000, and it has a futuristic appearance thanks to its sleek, aero-honed lines and wind-cheating front grille. This can be further enhanced with satin-finish paint options.

It has impressive performance thanks to the EQC 400 4Matic’s ample 408PS power output. Zero to 62mph takes just 5.1 seconds, aided by four-wheel-drive traction. However, the 80kWh battery range is limited to 255 miles, a little behind others in this sector. At least it can use 110kW public rapid chargers, to charge from 10-80 percent in 40 minutes.

The Mercedes-Benz EQC is a very safe electric car. In 2019, it scored five stars in Euro NCAP crash tests – with scores including an exceptional 96 percent for adult occupant protection. It’s practical too, with a roomy five-seat interior and an ample 500-litre boot. It can tow an 1,800kg braked trailer.

There are several different Mercedes-Benz EQC variants. Even the EQC Sport has 19-inch alloys and MBUX infotainment system with dual 10.25-inch colour screens. EQC AMG Line and AMG Line Edition models have 20-inch alloys and a more dynamic appearance, with EQC AMG Line Premium and EQC AMG Line Premium Plus adding further to the level of standard equipment.

Mercedes-Benz EQE

Year launched: 2022

Mercedes-Benz EQE
8/10

The Mercedes-Benz EQE Saloon is priced from around £69,000 and is a rival for cars like the BMW i5, the Tesla Model S and  Genesis Electrified G80.

The executive Mercedes-Benz electric car is currently offered in EQE 300 and EQE 350+ guises, both of which us a 90kWh battery. The EQE 300 has a 245PS electric motor while the EQE 350+ puts out 292PS. The official battery range is very impressive – up to 380 miles, and it charges at a 110kW rapid charger from 10-80 percent in 32 minutes.

The Mercedes-Benz EQE has a very futuristic interior, dominated by a large MBUX touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard, plus an additional OLED driver display. The dashboard is framed by selectable ambient lighting, for an incredible light show at night. The sleek saloon car is also roomy inside, despite its wind-cheating shape.

While a Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a traditional saloon car, the streamlined EQE gives us a taste of how Mercedes-Benz electric cars will look in the future. That it is such a luxurious machine to drive, with a supple ride and ultra-low noise levels, makes us confident the future will be bright.

Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV

Year launched: 2023

Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV: front
8/10

Filling the gap in Mercedes' electric SUV range between the mid-size EQC and the big, luxurious EQS SUV, the EQE SUV arrived in 2023 and, on paper at least, ticks lots of boxes. It's not cheap, with prices starting at more than £90,000 and topping out at nearly £135,000, but it does bring lots of Mercedes style, interior quality and tech to target rivals like the BMW iX and Audi Q8 e-tron.

The EQE SUV experience is meant to mirror that of the EQS SUV... but smaller (and more affordable). All models have four-wheel drive, and you'll get a battery range of up to 334 miles per charge, depending on the model. You could also think of it as an EQE saloon, but higher. And with a 520-litre hatchback boot.

Three powertrain options are available, starting with the entry-level EQE 350, which has 292PS and reaches 62mph from standstill in 6.6 seconds. The EQE 500 has 408PS, which reduces that acceleration time to 4.9 seconds, while the top-of-the-range Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 has a whopping 625PS for a 3.7-second 0-62mph time.

Mercedes-Benz EQS

Year launched: 2022

Mercedes-Benz EQS Review 2023: front dynamic
9/10

The Mercedes-Benz EQS is a landmark Mercedes-Benz electric car. It is possibly the poshest, most luxurious EV yet launched, and is a fiendishly appealing range-topper for the Mercedes-Benz EQ range of cars. It will soon go head-to-head with the new BMW i7 – and it’s the Mercedes-Benz electric car that boasts the bragging rights of getting there first. 

Prices reflect this, starting from upwards of £105,000. But the range of this Mercedes-Benz electric car more than justifies this. Thanks to a huge 108kWh battery, it is able to travel up to 453 miles between charges – an incredible distance that’s combined with an ample 333PS for 0-62mph in 6.2 seconds. Find a suitably powerful DC public rapid charger, and it will charge from 10-80 percent in just 31 minutes.

There’s also a Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic+, with a colossal 658PS for 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds. Even this model has an electric driving range of up to 377 miles. 

As the S-Class of electric cars, the Mercedes-Benz EQS has a sleek and imposing appearance, aided by an overall length of more than 5.2 metres. Inside, it represents the pinnacle of high-tech modern luxury, with the centrepiece being the magnificent optional Hyperscreen display.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS is also supremely comfortable, with first-class rear accommodation and highly exclusive trim materials. A haven of sleek peace and quiet on the move, it is an extraordinary car to drive and be driven in, and an exemplar of today’s Mercedes-Benz electric car line-up.

Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV

Year launched: 2022

New Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV 2023
8/10

The Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV is a mega-luxurious seven-seater, with prices starting at just shy of £130,000. It's about as close to a private jet as you can get on the road, and just to underline the point, there's even a trim level called Business Class.

The third row of chairs aren’t the largest you’ll find, but they’re still useful for children, while the middle row is airy and indulgent, with plenty of luxury features. Even in seven-seat mode, the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV has a decent-sized boot.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV is, however, most impressive from the front seats. Here, occupants face the seamless Hyperscreen infotainment display, which comprises three screens set within a glass display panel; the centre widescreen is particularly striking. It’s surrounded by delicate materials and rich upholstery.

Mercedes-Benz quotes a range of up to 365 miles according to official figures, along with 200kW DC rapid charging from 10-80 percent in just 31 minutes. Choose between a 360PS electric motor in the EQS 450 that will take you to 62mph in 6.0 seconds, or a 544PS version in the EQS 580, taking that acceleration figure down to 4.6 seconds.

Mercedes-Benz EQV

Year launched: 2020

Mercedes-Benz EQV
6/10

The Mercedes-Benz EQV is the most practical and flexible Mercedes-Benz electric car of all. Priced from north of £80,000, it is an electric people carrier that proudly puts maximum space efficiency and passenger-pleasing roominess above all else.

The people-carrying Mercedes-Benz electric car has a 90kWh battery and, despite its bluff aerodynamics, will travel up to 213 miles between charges. It’s able to use high-power DC rapid chargers, taking it from 10-80 percent in around 45 minutes.

The Mercedes-Benz EQV seats up to seven people, while an optional Table Package includes a folding, multi-position table – turning the car into a zero-emissions business express. Practicality is aided further by the tall roofline and sliding rear side doors.

Three trim grades are available: Sport, Sport Premium and Sport Premium Plus. The latter comes as standard with Airmatic air suspension, offering an executive-grade ride quality that remains smooth and even across all surfaces. It also has a Burmester surround-sound audio system to capitalise on the excellent refinement of this silent-running Mercedes-Benz EV.

This is not an out-and-out performance car; the 204PS motor delivers 0-62mph in 12.1 seconds and a 98mph top speed. But for carrying up to seven people and all their luggage in quiet comfort, it is a unique and interesting electric car choice.

The cheapest new Mercedes-Benz electric car is the EQA. Prices start from just under £50,000. Next cheapest is the Mercedes-Benz EQB, which costs from around £55,000.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS Saloon has the longest range of all electric cars currently on sale. It is capable of travelling up to 453 miles on a full charge.

Mercedes-Benz has pledged to go all-electric by 2030. By 2025, one in two Mercedes-Benz cars sold will be electric.

What does Mercedes-Benz EQ stand for?

The Mercedes-Benz EQ name stands for emotional intelligence and ‘comprises all significant aspects of customer-oriented electric mobility’.

Is there an electric Mercedes-Benz C-Class saloon?

We understand Mercedes-Benz is planning to launch an electric version of its best-selling C-Class saloon in 2024.

Are there any approved used Mercedes-Benz electric cars?

Mercedes-Benz has been selling electric cars since 2019 and there are growing numbers in the marque’s approved used scheme. We found a 2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA AMG Line with 48,000 miles on the clock for £23,890 – a substantial saving over the new price.
