Mercedes-Benz EQ C To Debut September 4

JUL 27 2018 BY MARK KANE 21

The production version of the all-new Mercedes-Benz EQC will be unveiled to the world at the @me Convention in Stockholm, Sweden on September 4.

We assume that the general public premiere will take place at the upcoming Paris Motor Show this fall though.

In the U.S. we should see the EQC for the first time at the Los Angeles Auto Show, followed by at the NAIAS in Detroit.

The EQC is Mercedes-Benz’ first ground-up electric crossover and we suspect it will be a volume seller for the brand.

We don’t have official specifications, but we know the dual motor, all-wheel drive powertrain is capable to scooting from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in less than 5 seconds, and that at least 250 miles (400 km) of range is expected. Also, the fast charging capability should exceed 100 kW (115 kW according to article).

The concept version of this model is equipped with a 70 kWh battery and 300 kW dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain.

The official market launch is set for some as-of-yet-unannounced time in 2019.

Mercedes-Benz EQC concept:

  • 70 kWh battery
  • up to 310 miles (500 km) of range (optimistic)
  • dual-motor, all-wheel drive
  • 300 kW of peak power

And what are production numbers???

104,894 per Venus day. Unless there is a planetary holiday on Venus, then only 32,117.

I hope that’s sufficient information. It’s based on the same source where all other EV production numbers come from. So just search for them, the EQC production numbers are just next to those.

The flood gates of German BEV production are slowly opening. Competition is good, consumers win!

Personally, I credit Tesla for forcing all other makers to come out with something more compelling than an ugly electric clown car.

That was The Plan.

Hey, it might be good to remember, that those of us Clowns, well, we need to get around too!

Nissan did their best, in 2018, to fix the “Ugly” problem.

I like the 2018 Leaf… huge improvement over the earlier model.

I see a lot of FIAT 500e and Smart Cars with “Max Capacity: 15 Clowns” bumper stickers. How very appropriate:)

Wow, awesome, Mercedes trying to jump in front of the E-Tron which is unveiling a couple weeks later…

I think this is a medium end model whereas the eTron is a full sized model, so different target market as well as different prices ?!. A full EV with a cross-over likes the approach of the Porsche Taycan!. Nice if the design is attractive enough.
Imagine if BMW’s original i3 EV was the shape of the i8 but the size of 1-series as a roadster and priced at 50K ?. Even with 120 miles range, it would have been a seller as many Z -car owners will jump at it!.

How cool would it be if they would actually deliver them with the camo paint scheme… I really liked the iPace’s green one…

I can guarantee you won’t see the EQC at NAIAS because Mercedes-Benz, along with BMW and Audi, have withdrawn from the 2019 show.

LA will be the show to see them…


the future is electric

nice, I’ll try to be there.
when can I get one?

E-Tron, EQ-C, I-Pace, and EV Maccans and Cayennes not too far away – all so much better looking than the minivan X.

Well, the X has better sofware for sure. But it will be pressured so, hopefully Tesla will improve with variants such as “without Falcon doors”, variant with sliding real doors etc.

They seem to have their handful just delivering cars – I don’t think updating their minivan is high on the priority list. God, the X is just such an ugly, dysfunctional abomination made even more so when you see the Germans’ SUV offerings.

Oh, and how does the Quattro and the EQ drive? I mean, you know that the X has better software, so I assume you have exstensive, hands-on time with the other two to make such a definitive statement – I’m so jealous!

How does it have “better software”? Do you mean a better UI? Or are you talking about Autopilot?

I personally don’t think the UI is pretty good. On none of those actually. If you want a good UI, go for Apple car play, or probably Android Auto. The Apple car play on some rental Peugeot I had was actually way better, than the Tesla UI.

Autopilot is another topic, but there I’d agree, Tesla has the most consumer value here. IMO it’s mostly the steering. Every other car I drove with similar features had a much more restricted steering force, only enough for very slight bends.

I’m sure all those people driving their X are pretty happy. Not every car is the right one for every person. When I checked out the X I found it very easy to get into. Many other vehicles you are ducking and twisting to get into the back seat, but the X you just seen to walk straight into it. That’s just my impression. If I had the money I wouldn’t hesitate to get one.

Yeah, they aren’t – the X is a notorious piece of junk, and the people who have bought it hate it for it’s kit-car build quality. This is just one of an endless number of articles about it:

Save your money for when real car companies like Audi, MB, Porsche, BMW and even GM deliver their takes on what an EV SUV is suppose to be.
