To increase battery life, the EQE gains an Eco Charging function that reduces the battery load during charging and slows down the ageing process of the battery according to the brand. The charging interruption tech charges the battery at off-peak times when energy prices are lower. It can also be preheated or cooled while driving to reach the optimal temperature for fast charging.
