Mercedes-Benz EQC At Paris

Visually, the EQC comes with the familiar Mercedes-Benz elements, albeit with futuristic styling. Up front, the electric SUV comes with a large grille and a twin slat AMG-esque design. The grille itself is shrouded with a black surround that flows into the LED headlamps. The LED daytime running lights in the headlamp itself are complemented with a LED lighting strip just over the front grille. The rear comes with twin LED tail lamps joined together with a lighting strip while in profile.

The interior on the new Mercedes -Benz EQC is a very familiar one too. The infotainment and instrument cluster are identical to what you get on the likes of an E-Class while the central console has a similar feel too. Of course, there are some changes, including some design elements that ape cooling vents on an electric motor and new AC vents too.
