Mercedes-Benz EQC OverviewThe Mercedes-Benz EQC is Stuttgart’s first member of the fully electric Mercedes EQ family, a range of full-fledge production electric vehicle that will expand to include 10 new models by 2022. Based on Mercedes-Benz’s MRA (Modular Rear Architecture) platform that also underpins the Mercedes-Benz GLC compact SUV, the fully electrified SUV shares a very similar proportion to its internal combustion engine counterpart both inside and out.
The concept is rather simple. Take out the combustion engine, exhaust, fuel tank, and transmission from the Mercedes-Benz GLC, then insert two electric motors, one on each axle and juiced by an underfloor battery.
The Mercedes-Benz EQC runs predominantly in front-wheel-drive mode, but the rear electric motor is called to serve when extra performance is required. The more organic and streamlined profile with distinctive features such as the blue stripes in the headlights exemplify its zero-emission status. The EQC 400 4Matic is the sole variant available and retails at an estimated price of RM 600,000.
