Launching the all new electric SUV, Mercedes EQC in India has brought revolution in premium electric SUV segment. With the market debut of the SUV, Mercedes will become the first luxury automaker to introduce an all-electric model in the country, beating the likes of Audi and Jaguar which are also readying their own EV offerings for our market.
Mercedes EQC powered by two asynchronous motors, one on each axle, produces a combined output of 408hp and 765Nm of torque. It’ll do a WLTP-certified 400km on a single charge, with energy being stored in a floor-mounted 85kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Charging times vary depending on the electrical supply, with a full charge from a standard 15A (3.4kW) domestic socket taking 21 hours, or 10 hours with the 7.5kW wall-box charger provided by Mercedes. These charging times can be cut down considerably using the network of 50kW DC fast chargers (90min claimed) that is slowly coming up across different cities.
The Mercedes-Benz EQC SUV has been launched at an introductory price* of Rs 99.30 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
