Mercedes-Benz says its first all-electric vehicle next-generation electric crossover EQC has already been sold this year and probably even next year, but Mercedes-Benz did not confirm the actual production capacity.
Dieter Zetsche (Dieter Zetsche), the outgoing General Director of Daimler, commented on the results of the German automaker in 2018:
We are sure that you will not be able to meet demand in 2019 and probably in 2020 as well. But we are doing everything possible to achieve maximum power.
Last year the company started taking pre-orders for the electric vehicle in many markets.
Daimler remained uncertain as to when EQC will enter production, and recent data indicate that this will happen in mid-2019.
It seems that they already have enough orders for the first production year, but they did not confirm the actual production capacity of the crossover EQC.
As for the vehicle, Mercedes-Benz tells about the power reserve 450 km on outdated NEDC standard, but most likely the real reserve will be approximately 320-350 miles on a single charge.
Electric EQC will be powered by the 2 induction motors with a total capacity of 300 kW (408 HP). It can reach a maximum speed of 180 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds.
According to the specification, the EQC is equipped with an on-Board charger with water cooling capacity of 7.4 kW and has a maximum charging power up to 110 kW on the respective charging stations DC.
The German automaker has not yet confirmed the price, but it is expected to start at about $70 000.
