Mercedes-Benz EQC

The new all-electric, all-wheel drive Mercedes-Benz EQC crossover SUV has a driving range of more than 280 miles (although this is based on the old NEDC test rather than the new WLTP standard), torque of 765 Nm, and it even has a towing capacity of 1800 kg.

The EQC – the first Mercedes-Benz vehicle to be launched under the EQ brand – has two electric motors at the front and rear axles with a combined output of 300 kW (408 hp) and maximum torque of 765 Nm.

The lithium-ion battery, which weighs 650 kg – contributing to the car’s overall kerb weight of 2,425kg – has an energy content of 80 kWh, and the driver is able to alter the battery recuperation level using paddles behind the steering wheel.

As standard the Mercedes-Benz EQC is equipped with a water-cooled onboard charger (OBC) with a capacity of 7.4 kW, making it suitable for AC charging at home or at public charging stations.

Charging at a Mercedes-Benz Wallbox is up to three times faster than at a domestic power socket. It is faster still with DC charging – which is standard for the EQC – for example via CCS (Combined Charging Systems) in Europe and the USA, CHAdeMO in Japan or GB/T in China. Depending on the SoC (status of charge), the EQC can be charged with a maximum output of up to 110 kW at an appropriate charging station. In around 40 minutes, the battery can be charged from 10 – 80 percent SoC (provisional data).

By market launch, 200 prototypes and pre-production vehicles of the EQC will have taken part in tests covering several million kilometres across four continents (Europe, North America, Asia and Africa).

Series production of the EQC will start in 2019 at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen.
