The new Mercedes-Benz EQC is elecrifying the audience at the Paris Motor Show. The company’s first electric crossover, the Mercedes-Benz EQC comes with a range of up to 450 kilometers to fight Audi’s new E-Tron. Our editor, Răzvan Măgureanu, is sending us the latest details and photos from the Paris Motor Show.
The Mercedes-Benz EQC was presented last month in Stockholm, Sweden. Powered by two asynchronous electric motors, one mounted on each axle and featuring an 80-kWh Lithium-Ion battery, the car gets a total output of 300 kW. The electric crossover hits a top speed of 180 km/h.
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).
It only takes 40 minutes to recharge the battery from 10 to 80% from a DC charging station, Mercedes claims.
