The first product from Mercedes-Benz’s all-electric division is out. Dubbed the EQC, the new SUV is Mercedes’s first purely electric vehicle,. The EQC will make its market debut in 2019. Unlike its conventional internal- combustion-engine-powered siblings, the EQC is based on an all-new scalable platform that’s specifically developed for Mercedes’s all-electric EQ range of vehicles. Having said that, the platform also shares some elements from Mercedes’s MRA platform, and as a result, the EQC shares a few similarities with the GLC like the wheelbase.
Joining the Audi e-tron, Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X, the Mercedes-Benz EQC is yet another high-end luxury performance electric SUV and the first of the Mercedes-Benz EQ models.
