The Mercedes-Benz EQC is the newest luxury electric SUV in the market and the first ever fully electric car from the German brand. The India launch of the car is expected to happen in the coming months. The EQC is loosely based on the GLC and that is evident in the fact that both cars share the same platform and similar design too. Plus, it made sense to adapt an existing car platform in order to keep costs to a minimum and reduce R&D budget too. But, the EQC will come to India as a completely built unit and well, we expect the pricing to reflect that! The EQC gets two asynchronous motors, one at each axle and the combined power output is 402 bhp. Mercedes claims a 0-100 kmph sprint time of just 5.1 seconds. The front motor is tuned for providing optimum, efficient performance while the rear motor is employed to offer a more dynamic feel when driving. The EQC offers a range of 450+ kilometres on full charge. Plugged into a DC fast-charger, the EQC can get up to 80 per cent charge in less than an hour. A wall-box charger will take close to 10-11 hours to charge the car. We expect the pricing to be a little over Rs. 1 crore at the time of the launch. Stay tuned for more updates on the EQC.
