Mercedes-Benz has just launched its electric sub-brand, EQ, as well as the first product: the EQC.
It’s slated to be made available after 2020 but we thought it will be interesting to let you know a bit about the car now.

EQ stands for “Electric Intelligence”. It is derived from the Mercedes-Benz brand values of “Emotion” and “Intelligence”.
The EQC is part of a growing family of all-electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz. Conceived to meet all the requirements for a battery-electric drive system.
Large black-panel surface as a striking front feature. Optical fibres as a visual link to the torch-like daytime running lamps.
Innovative interior design inspired by the world of consumer electronics. Trailblazing MBUX multimedia system – Mercedes-Benz User Experience with numerous EQ-specific functions.
An electric range of more than 450 km is highly achievable.
Estimated combined power consumption: 22.2 kWh/100 km, and combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km.
A compact electric drivetrain at each axle, with a combined output of 300 kW and 765 Nm.
Superior driving characteristics of an all-wheel drive vehicle. 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds.
Classed as a crossover SUV. The extended roofline and window layout with a low waistline and the coupe-like roof recess at the rear visually position it between an SUV and an SUV coupe.
