Mercedes has added another vehicle to its growing list of electric models – the EQE SUV. Bringing up to 367 miles from a single charge, the EQE is placed in the ever-expanding segment of electric SUVs, meaning that it has a number of rivals to go up against.

Here, we’re going to take a look through the cars that the new EQE will be squaring up to when it hits the road next year.
