Mercedes Benz recently unveiled its first all-electric car and it’s an SUV. It goes by the name EQC 400 4Matic.
MERC’S GOING ELECTRIC WITH THE EQCThe EQC 400 looks very much like an SUV but Mercedes says it’s also a pioneer for the kind of styling its electric vehicle range will eventually have. Think of BMW’s ‘i’ range and how those models are immediately identifiable as all being part of the same sub-genre. It is equipped with a 80kWh battery, which is good for around 300km. The recharge time is around 40 minutes from 10% to 80%.
The EQC is equipped with two electric motors: one on the front axle and one on the rear. The total output is 300kW, which allows for a 0–100km/h sprint time of less than five seconds. No release date for the EQC has been set.
