Mercedes-Benz EQC (2019): Test Drive in L.A.

[EQC 400 4MATIC: Stromverbrauch kombiniert: 20,8–19,7 kWh/100 km; CO₂-Emissionen kombiniert: 0 g/km.*] 

Hop into the all-new Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4MATIC (2019) and let our host Felix Smith take you on a tour through the streets of Los Angeles, California. In this very first real EQC test drive we put the car through its paces. So here is – almost – everything you might want to know about the features and details of the first fully electric SUV by Mercedes-Benz and our idea of the electric future of mobility.

The two electric motors of the EQC 400 4MATIC produce 410 PS, which are good for a 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 5.1 seconds. But there’s so much more to this vehicle than sheer power. That’s why we also talk about the car’s different exterior lines, its technical features like recuperation and the integrated MBUX system with gesture control. Moreover, we thoroughly reviewed the car’s distinctive design, its five different driving modes, the charging options, and we give you the hard facts & numbers like the EQC’s driving range.

Do you fancy a test drive yourself, now?

Enjoy Electric!
