The Generation EQ concept at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

The EQC is based on the Generation EQ concept that was unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.[3] Mercedes-Benz began taking reservations for the vehicle in Norway in September 2017.[4] The final production version was revealed in Sweden on September 4 2018,[5] and will publicly debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.[6]


The EQC is based on the GLC and shares the same wheelbase dimensions.[7] It is a five-seater vehicle and has a trunk capacity of 500 litres (18 cu ft).[8]

The EQC400 4MATIC is powered by 2 asynchronous electric motors, fitted on the front and rear axles, and produces 300 kW (402 hp).[9] It has an electronically limited top speed of 180 km/h (112 mph).[10]

The 80 kWh battery pack has a modular design and consists of 384 lithium-ion cells.[11] It can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in 40 minutes, via a DC fast charger.[12]

Steering wheel paddle shifters allow for the selection of varying levels of brake energy regeneration.[13]


Standard equipment includes 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic collision avoidance, and two 10.25-inch interior displays for the instrument cluster and infotainment system.[14] 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".[15] It can display charging information and energy consumption figures.[16] The navigation system can also suggest routes that include charging stations, depending on the remaining charge of the battery.[17]
