Spotlight on Mercedes’ New EQ Electric Car

Mercedes is a company that is committed to innovation and their new electric car, the EQ, represents that. EQ is the new generation of electric vehicles that promises the safety, connectivity, functionality, and comfort that you know and expect from Mercedes-Benz. Here’s what you need to know about this car:

About the EQ

EQ stands for “electric intelligence.” Mercedes has a whole line of cars planned for this brand starting with the EQC, an electric crossover. This new generation of electric cars is based on an architecture developed for battery-electric models. And because it’s scalable, it can be used across all models no matter the wheelbase and track width. These components are all variable due to the modular building-block system. The goal with EQ is to have an emission-free future.

The Mercedes EQC SUV

The Mercedes-Benz EQC400 4MATCIC, or the EQC for short, has a clear distinguishing feature, which is on the front end’s black panel. This panel is framed by fibre-optic lighting that surrounds the grille from headlight to headlight. The headlights themselves are blue LEDs. You can choose the wheel size you prefer: 19, 20, or 21 inches. Two of the wheel sizes also come with the option of blue highlights.

These unique features make the ECQ easily recognizable day or night. Instead of a roof rack on the EQC, there are attachment points integrated into the roof to improve the vehicle’s aerodynamics. Other unique style features to the EQC are found on the inside. Rectangular air vents have been swapped for turbine-style vents. The widescreen infotainment system catches the eye with its bold colors. The EQC will feature the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system, which offers voice recognition, gesture recognition, and gets to know more about you and your habits every time you drive.

The intuitive operating experience allows for a less distracted driver. The highlight of the MBUX system is its touch operation concept. The piano-black surfaces and rose gold accents also add to the interior of the EQC. The variety of colors and finishes in the cabin will be a pleasant surprise.

How the EQ Works

Two electric motors will power the four-wheel drive EQC, one for each set of wheels. Together they will produce 402 brake horsepower and 564lb ft of torque. You’ll be able to go 60mph in just 4.0 seconds with a top speed of 112mph. The EQC will give you approximately 280 miles between charges. You will be able to charge the EQC at home via a wall-box or wall socket and there are plenty of charging stations on the road. The slow-charging process can take hours, but with a fast-charger will get an 80% charge in about 40 minutes. The battery pack features a water-cooled charger. The EQC will offer several driving modes.

This new line of cars from Mercedes is sure to be a hit. The EQC has been designed so that people will instantly know it’s a Mercedes. If you’re in the market for an electric car that offers everything that Mercedes is known for, you should really consider the EQC!
