Mercedes-Benz EQC Seems Quite Quick At Nürburgring: Video

NOV 28 2018 BY MARK KANE 5

Mercedes-Benz EQC tested at the Nürburgring.

Mercedes-Benz performs the last tests of the all-electric EQC at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, ahead of the market launch in the second half of 2019.

The EQC looks stylish and seems pretty quick, especially for such a big and heavy vehicle. We really enjoys how the SUV slightly slides in the corners too.

It looks like it will eat tires like there is no tomorrow. And it’s to slow regardless of how fast it ilaps the RING.

I still think Mercedes is the weakest of the big 3 German auto makers when it comes to EVs. They still don’t really get it and think it’s just a fad that will go away. Unlike VWAG they haven’t even developed a dedicated EV platform and are going to manufacture the EQC on the same assembly lines as their fossil cars. (Which might be cheaper short term and with low production numbers but much less efficient in the long run, especially once scaling up.)

That said, their commercial branch seems to be much more enthusiastic about electric trucks and vans which is why I’m still hopeful that they will catch up eventually.

That kind of speed looks like a 9 mn. something lap time on Nordschleife. Very good for an SUV. Hopefully Mercedes next year makes an official video and Nordschleife lap timing for EQC.

At the presentation i didnt like the EQC but yet i saw more and more pictures I like the Mercedes. In black this car looks very nice.
But the Etron is the better car but definitly a lot more expensive.
For me 250-300 km range are enought and when the price not to hight (compere to the GLC) the Mercedes is a good choice.

Good to see EVs being tested at Nürburgring. Hopefully it means these cars will perform well at high performance sustainably, and the battery won’t overheat like Teslas do whenever Tesla owners have taken theirs to Nürburgring.
