Mercedes-Benz To Reveal Electric EQ Compact Car In Frankfurt
Another compact electric car? Looks like it.
Mercedes-Benz announced the premier of an all-electric EQ concept vehicle within the compact car segment at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) from 14 to 24 September 2017 (of which InsideEVs will be there live in person).
The production version of the long-range compact is expected to enter the market in 2020.
On the stage In Frankfurt, Mercedes-Benz will also present a hydrogen plug-in model called GLC F‑CELL EQ Power. This vehicle was announced more than year ago.
The pre-series model however will be available only in small scale.
It’s possible that Daimler will surprise us with something else at IAA as there is the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE hypercar “with Formula 1 hybrid drive technology” and an EQ badge int he works.
“The Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is a near-series study of a hypercar. The hypercar’s series version will be the first ever automobile to feature genuine Formula 1 hybrid technology. With the new, electrically powered smart showcar, the brand is exhibiting a study by the recently founded product and technology brand EQ as a world première. This fully autonomously driving study is the first model to comprehensively embody all four pillars of the corporate strategy CASE: “Connected”, “Autonomous”, “Shared” and “Electric”. It stands for maximum mobility efficiency in and for the urban environment thanks to systematic further development of the carsharing concept, and makes the vision of individualised, highly flexible urban public transport a reality.”
