October 13, 2022 – "Very good" in the special rating for assistance systems¹ and five stars in the safety rating. The independent European safety organisation Euro NCAP has paid tribute to the very high safety level of the EQE in two respects: the EQE 350+ (WLTP: combined electric energy consumption: 18.7–15.9 kWh/100 km, combined CO₂ emissions: 0 g/km)* with optional Driving Assistance Package Plus and head-up display was awarded an overall rating of "very good" in the special evaluation for assistance systems. The EQE also achieved the maximum rating of five stars in the Euro NCAP safety rating, based on the standard specification.
We are delighted with these two outstanding results, because they serve to prove that our assistance and safety concept, which is tailored to real accident scenarios, is just as effective in terms of standardised assessments. At the same time, the EQE's excellent Euro NCAP score confirms that accident protection at Mercedes-Benz is not a question of drive concept.
