The first Mercedes-Benz electric SUV Accelerates Fast and Winter Tests
We recently had a rare look at the new generation Mercedes-Benz electric car, the Concept EQ, but the vehicle is just the concept of the production vehicle that will be called the Mercedes-Benz EQC.
Now, new EQC prototypes have been discovered before production starts next year.
The German automaker says its battery pack has a total capacity of more than 70 kWh for a range of “up to 500 kilometers” (310 miles). Of course, this is based on the NEDC standard and it would be expected that the real or EPA-rated range would be significantly lower: around 250 miles.
In terms of volume, it should compete with the other all-electric luxury SUVs coming onto the market in the coming years.
As far as the power supply is concerned, Mercedes says that the EQC is equipped with two electric motors on the front and rear axles for a total output of up to 300 kW. The automaker says it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in less than five seconds.
Our first look at this acceleration as a prototype of the new electric vehicle was seen in nature:
