Production of the EQC will start in the Bremen plant in mid-2019

Here is another pre-production prototype of the EQC, spotted in a village near Stuttgart, Germany. Mercedes-Benz seems to not mind showing its first EV, as we've already seen it now several times.

While the specs don't bring any breakthrough in battery capacity, acceleration or power output, the question is whether customers will favor the EQC over other models like the Audi e-tron, Jaguar I-PACE and Tesla Model X.

Check out the EQC electric crossover in the video above.
