According to insiders, the German automaker Mercedes-Benz has started a series of finishing tests of its fully environmentally friendly crossover EQC. This car will be the main competitor to the electric crossover Audi E-Tron.
We are approaching the official debut of the first fully electric crossover of the German brand Mercedes-Benz. Another test prototype of the novelty was seen somewhere in Germany literally a few hours ago. According to rumors, the official presentation of environmentally friendly EQC will take place in the framework of the Paris Motor Show, which will be held in early October 2018. In addition to a series of spy photos, automotive publications also published a video with the new Mercedes-Benz EQC.
Engineers of the German automaker last month also tested the prototype of their long-awaited novelty – to a great regret, as at that time, the car is covered with a rather dense layer of camouflage film. It is thanks to this that it is not possible to discern the appearance of the Mercedes-Benz EQC in all its details.
Although the conceptual version of the eco-friendly crossover gives us a pretty clear idea of what to expect from the design, we still really want to look under this camouflage. As for the technical characteristics of the production version of the car, so far nothing is known about them either. Note that the previously presented concept was equipped with 2 electric motors – one on each axis. Their total power was 402 horsepower, and the “ceiling” of torque was 700 Nm. According to the representatives of the brand, the car spent less than 5 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h. It is noteworthy that for about 20-30 years ago such acceleration could boast only supercars.
It is known that the serial production of Mercedes-Benz EQC will be established at the brand enterprise in the state of Alabama (USA). The novelty will compete with Jaguar I-Pace, Audi E-Tron and BMW iX3.
