Mercedes-Benz Says Goodbye Noise In Concept EQ Video

JUN 26 2018 BY MARK KANE 5

Mercedes-Benz promotes the Concept EQ (the concept versions of the EQC all-electric SUV scheduled for 2019) with a new video called Goodbye noise.

Electric cars are almost silent, especially at very low speeds, because the electric motors are extremely quiet. Unlike an internal combustion engine, the electric motor doesn’t want to blow away itself with on-going explosions.

Some of the powertrain noise comes from power electronics or mechanical whining, but overall it’s considered silent – or at least silent enough that production quality issues make squeaks and rattles of the car itself more prominent.

The EQC will be produced in Bremen (Germany) and then also Beijing (China).

The German manufacturer said that with the Concept EQ, the future is soon to be produced in series by Mercedes-Benz. It will be breathtaking – in the double sense.

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

Clever commercial, with more EV ride sharing people can experience quiet.

Stupid commercial!

No more MB or BMW! They have been hijacked by bloody Chinese Communists to set up shop there to export to the world.

All the high volume car companies makes cars in China. It’s the worlds largest market. If you look at a large brand, they make vehicles in like 10+ countries. It cost a lot of money to ship products like cars all over the world. It does not help that each marked have different preferences to how the car should look, how it should drive, what kind of engine it has, how much they are willing to pay, what features is important, how much do they want to pay for safety . . There are also import duties/taxes they’re trying to avoid. The largest car export brand in the US is BMW. They make most of the X models, and export them all over the world. Just have too see how this trade war will affect that. In BMWs case, they have to pay extra to export cars to Europe/China. Since they don’t make this model in other places – it will be problematic. Maybe Trump did not think about that. If they set up production lines for the X3, X5 and so on in Europe, China and so on – there will be exported less cars from BMWs US plant.… Read more »
