Demand for Mercedes-Benz EQC exceeds production capacity.

According to Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz EQC scheduled for production from mid-2019 is already sold out.

Zetsche didn't reveal the planned production volume, but demand indicates that the company will not be able to produce enough EQC in 2019 and probably not in 2020 either.

"We are sure that we will not be able to meet the demand in 2019 and probably not by 2020. But we do everything we can to achieve the maximum capacity."

It's great to see that Mercedes-Benz customers are going to switch to electric cars and sign up even before the market launch. A similar story reportedly concerns the electric smart too.
