Mercedes-Benz announced a new, more attractive base model and a new sports version of its EQC electric SUV for Europe (in dealer showrooms in May). In 2020, the company sold about 20,000 copies.

The new base version - EQC 400 4MATIC - is identically configured throughout Europe, starting in Germany at €66,068.80 ($79,700), including 19% VAT. The second, sportier and more expensive option is the 400 4MATIC AMG Line, starting at €73,208.80 ($88,300).

The new pricing is especially important for Germany, where the effective price can be reduced to €58,093.80 ($70,050):

"Mercedes-Benz and the federal government are supporting the changeover to electric mobility in Germany: thanks to the list price of under €65,000 excl. VAT for the EQC, an environmental bonus of €5000 from the federal government and a €2500 subsidy from Mercedes-Benz are possible[3]. In this case the EQC 400 4MATIC costs €63,093.80 incl. VAT in Germany. If the government's share of the environmental bonus is deducted, the effective price is €58,093.80."

Both are equipped with the 11 kW three-phase on-board charger as standard (peak DC fast charging is 110 kW), but in general, there is no change to the battery (80 kWh) or the dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain (300 kW). The all-electric range is estimated at 421-462 km (262-287 miles) WLTP.
