First of all, you can get a EQB and a EQCwhich are electric versions of the GLB and the GLC. But once you meet the EV versions of the E-Class segment, the EQE now split into EQE Sedan Y EQE-SUV. A complete tongue twister.

Other than that, as its name suggests, the EQE SUV is a slightly taller, more practical version of the EQE Sedan.
