The Mercedes-Benz EQC (N293) is a fully-electric compact luxury SUV, produced by Mercedes-Benz.[3] It is the first member of the fully electric Mercedes EQ family, a range that will expand to include 10 new models by 2022.[4]

Launch[edit]

The EQC is based on the Generation EQ concept that was unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.[5] Mercedes-Benz began taking reservations for the vehicle in Norway in September 2017.[6] The final production version was revealed in Sweden on September 4 2018,[7] and publicly debuted at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.[8]

Design[edit]

The EQC is based on the GLC and shares the same wheelbase dimensions.[9] It is a five-seater vehicle and has a trunk capacity of 500 litres (18 cu ft).[10]

The EQC400 4MATIC is powered by 2 asynchronous electric motors, fitted on the front and rear axles, and produces 300 kW (402 hp).[11] It has an electronically limited top speed of 180 km/h (112 mph).[12]

The 80 kWh battery pack has a modular design and consists of 384 lithium-ion cells.[13] It can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in 40 minutes, via a DC fast charger.[14]

Steering wheel paddle shifters allow for the selection of varying levels of brake energy regeneration.[15]

Equipment[edit]

Standard equipment includes 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic collision avoidance, and two 10.25-inch interior displays for the instrument cluster and infotainment system.[16] All models feature the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system, which features a voice-controlled smart-assistant that can be activated by saying "Hey Mercedes".[17] It can display charging information and energy consumption figures.[18] The navigation system can also suggest routes that include charging stations depending on the remaining charge of the battery [19], as well as simple destination entry using what3words.
