The first electric vehicle of Mercedes-Benz under the EQ brand announced at an event in Sweden. Its official name is EQC 400 4Matic and it has a smooth space-age design. The company called it an “avant-grade electro-look” and it is expected on the roads in the U.S in 2020. The all-wheel-drive EV has 2-motors, one in the front and other in the back to propel itself. Just the front motor is engaged when the vehicle is under less-heavy and medium load. The rear motor actually works for sportiness. The vehicle has 402 horsepower and 564 foot-pounds of rotating force. Mercedes said that the EQC can reach zero to 60 in just 4.9 seconds. It is powered by an 80kWh battery pack running under the vehicle’s floor.
The company also said that its new invention will support DC fast charging and it will go from 10% to 90% in just 90 minutes using a 110kW power source. Mercedes said that its estimated range is 200 miles. The exterior look of this vehicle is much like a futuristic GLC. The interior is more attractive with rose-gold accents and dual 10.25-inch displays behind a single piece of glass that floats ahead of the dash. The doors and dashboard have perfect finish to resemble a high-end amplifier, but there will be an AMG interior trim level. It is important that the latest Mercedes-Benz tech will be available in the vehicle before its launch. It will also include the new MBUX infotainment system with its attractive and perfect voice control. Its ECO Assist helps in creating more efficiency map of a route using curves, traffic, intersections, and speed limits to drive more efficiently.
