Let’s Take An Up-Close Look At The Mercedes EQC: Includes Cutaways

SEP 9 2018 BY MARK KANE 19

Here’s a quick look at the Mercedes-Benz EQC exterior, interior and cutaways, live from the reveal.

In one of its latest episodes, JerryRigEverything takes us to the unveiling event of Mercedes-Benz EQC in Sweden, presenting – besides the usual exterior and interior shots – some very interesting cutaways of the entire car.

Battery pack, pouch cells and dual-motor powertrain were shown, which is always interesting when a new model comes out (in fact the EQC has still one more year before launch).

According to JerryRigEverything, folks familiar with Mercedes-Benz will feel right at home in the EQC. There are a couple of new things like the dual screen console and overall style with LED lights everywhere inside & out, but overall it’s a Mercedes and with a major brand on board with BEVs, perhaps even more consumers will be interested in making the switch to electric.

First look inside the Electric Mercedes! – Should Tesla Be Worried?

The Mercedes EQC brings a new level of competition to the Electric Vehicle marketplace. Mercedes has a massive 130 year head start building cars… BUT are brand new walking into the electric car industry, heavily dominated by Tesla. Will they be able to stand out? Lets jump into the details. This video will help you decide between an All electric Mercedes, or a Tesla. Come along as we take a First Look inside the All New Electric Mercedes EQC.

130 yrs of Building Cars….Not Very Impressive……….. Tesla’s Body Panels are Just Fine ! …………. Mercedes is Far Behind Tesla & have Much to Learn About Electric Cars……….If you want the BEST EV …., You Buy a Tesla & NOT a Compliance Mercedes EV Car …IMO !

ffbj

Yeah, it’s just our imagination it’s the No 1 selling car in the U.S.

Hauer

Thought experiment:
Imagine THIS as a Tesla product for announced for 2019/2020. same specs.
What would be your reaction?

I would be shocked. And not in a good way.

However, it will come with functioning safety equipment, door handles, doors that open. Interior that is actually luxury and other weird things that people expect from luxury cars

Neromanceres

Actually the Model Y SR Dual might actually be pretty close to this spec wise.

Well, at least they are trying. Let’s wait till it comes out and then unload on it.

“… and with a major brand on board with BEVs, perhaps even more consumers will be interested in making the switch to electric.” Excuse me? Of course it will entice more consumers. As I keep saying here, buying a Tesla has costs beyond money. Many customers are simply not willing to buy something that expensive from a company without a long history, a company they’ve never dealt with, one that has an increasingly (ahem) colorful image thanks to Musk, and in many cases one that doesn’t have a store or service center within comfortable range. Oh, and if you want a Model 3, one you have to wait a long time to get. And all this is on top of (gasp!) buying a car that runs on electricity instead of good ol’ gasoline. Yes, a lot of people are not just willing to accept that degree of difference, but actually embrace it. The still huge reservation list for the Model 3 proves that. But I’d bet that a lot more people are not willing to sign up for it and they buy a Bolt or Leaf or simply throw in the towel and buy another ICE vehicle and tell themselves… Read more »

” 250 to 300 mile range” Bahahahaaaaaaaaa

It’s incredible that these companies still persist in placing so much junk in the “engine” bay and haven’t taken advantage of the EV opportunities.
And what’s with the motor placement? It looks really high above the axle. I read a report that all the German companies got Tesla cars and pulled them apart, but you wouldn’t think so given how ICE like their EV designs are. The only thing they seem to have adopted is the low, flat, battery pack.

Dee

you can’t even get a standard size spare wheel in the Tesla frunk, you can bet the Merc will have a full size spare in the boot.

Well, many people with probably be buying this car, but I won’t be amoung them. German readers may be surprised that Daimler does not have that great a reputation for reliability in the states – especially with its Freightliner brand. Seeing as Mercedes Dealership service is more costly than average, to me the car is ‘mediocre – lose’, in that it is a ‘me-too’ electric, and any needed service will be more costly than average.

Thanks but this time i’ll pass.

Japanese are normally more reliable. But if reliability is paramount, Tesla wouldn’t be selling cars. Some study in the UK placed model S in the last place, and if that wasn’t enough, distance going from the 2nd least reliable to the Tesla was about the same as the distance going from the 2nd least reliable to the best one!
Cars are not just specs!

John

Model S reliability has improved to “Better Than Average” in recent Consumer Reports surveys, which use a large/representative sample. Model X reliability continues to lag, however.

Mercedes used to have a stellar reputation for reliability up until the early 1980s. I recall the numbers were that Mercedes cars on average stayed on the road ~20 years, Volvos 17, and the next best brand 12 or so.
What happened was the gizmo-ifying of cars and the race to add lots of complex electronics which can’t be repaired, only replaced; planned obsolescence, as with many consumer appliances, also played its part (the average air-conditioner or refrigerator made today lasts about a third of what one made in 1980 did).
Then came financing via leasing, and the vast majority of luxury cars are leased, not bought, and their drivers have no intention of driving it past the warranty period.
Nowadays all luxury cars have awful reliability, and they’re all pretty much the same (IIRC, excpetions are Infiniti & Lexus, because they’re rebadged Nissans/Toyotas).

I agree It’s happening to everything, I recently had a new central heating boiler installed & their guy told me they are now classed as “white goods” like refrigerators,washing machines, and have a short life span. luxury cars are getting to be no more reliable than a cheap Chinese brand vehicle costing but a fraction of the price of a luxury brand motor. It’s become a sad state of affairs.

John

Some of us who have survived for multiple decades have witnessed a profound improvement in the overall reliability of cars. Virtually every new car sold in 2018 offers vastly better reliability and durability than its equivalent from the 1950-2000.

Yes, and no. The complexity of a modern car has resulted in a ton of extra parts. Parts that can fail. There are also environmental concerns in the design that result on shorter life of some parts. They’re not so likely to break down as cars used to be. But in general, if you follow the factory guidlines for maintenance, and take care of the car – most cars are very reliable. The problem comes when brands will try to save money, and make parts cheaper. You will find that Ford don’t used bearings in their fans for example, only a bushing. It will not last. It is not made to last. Yes, it is fairly easy to replace and it cost a hundred dollar or two. The problem is most people have to pay someone to replace the part, and that cost money as well. When many parts have to be replaced like that, cost of ownership gets high. Maintenance costs are high on most products. Some brands are better then others. MB is in general good to average (Toyota is more reliable still) as long as people maintain them. Porsche is reliable, Subaru is reliable. . but it’s… Read more »

“Ford don’t used bearings in their fans for example, only a bushing.”

Yep, and they also use brushed motors on those fans (at least on the Fiesta), which makes it noisier and less reliable.

This video looked more like payed advertising than a real review of a car/technology.
