With five driving modes and four recuperation modes, the EQC is ready to battle its premium rivals: the Audi E-Tron and the Jaguar I-Pace. From across the Atlantic, the Tesla Model X is all eyes.

The future owner of the EQC can specify one of the two equipment lines, Electric Art and AMG Line. They will be able to recharge their zero-emission premium vehicle from the AC charging stations with a capacity of 7.4 kW, suitable for a wallbox at home or from the DC charging stations with a capacity of up to 110 kW (CCS standard in Europe and in the United States and CHAdeMO available in Japan, China and the United Kingdom).
