Mercedes-Benz EQC Change Vehicle

Mercedes-Benz joins the electric-vehicle charge with its EQ sub-brand and the EQC, an SUV based on the GLC. It uses a motor at each axle, enabling all-wheel drive. Output is a healthy 402 horsepower, and the company estimates 0-60 mph times of 4.8 seconds. The company estimates the 80-kWh battery will be capable of producing an estimated range of over 250 miles.

New SUV navigation will plot course to find recharging stations

Overview

Mercedes-Benz EQC is the latest in a line of fully-electric vehicles from a luxury manufacturer, following the Audi E-Tron and Jaguar I-Pace, as well as the more-established Tesla.

Like the Audi and Jaguar, the EQC qualifies for the full $7,500 federal tax credit, because Mercedes-Benz hasn’t sold anywhere near 200,000 EVs, which is the threshold for the credits to begin phasing out. Tesla, however, will exhaust all of its credits on 12/31/19.

Impressions Indeed, the EQC has very clean, simple lines. Its exterior is toned down from the crisp creases seen in the latest Mercedes models.
