The Mercedes-Benz EQC is the first all-electric vehicle from the German automaker, and it went on sale in India on October 8, 2020. The new Mercedes-Ben EQC is also the first luxury electric SUV in India and it will be sold under the company’s electric vehicle brand EQ, which made its debut earlier this year, in January 2020. Mercedes-Benz India will start deliveries for the car in a phased manner, and the first phase will include only 50 vehicles, which will be sold in six metro cities – Mumbai, Pune Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Bengaluru. The introductory price for these first 50 customers stands at Rs. 99.30 lakh, India (Ex-showroom). The Mercedes-Benz EQC comes with three charging options – a 50kW DC fast charger, a 7.4kW AC wall charger, and a 2.4kW plug-in charger. While the DC fast charger will take about 90 minutes to charge the battery from 0 to 100 per cent, the AC wall charger, or as Mercedes calls it Wallbox will take 10 hours to do the same. The standard plug charger will take about 21 hours to charge the battery from 0 to 100 per cent.
India’s focus on next-gen mobility has definitely taken on legs under the current government, but the ‘National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020’ was actually unveiled in 2013 under the previous Congress-led government. That puts into perspective the concerted efforts across the aisle for green mobility and electric cars. Since then the country has been willing to adopt a 360-degree approach in order to turn into an EV nation. While the initial push was seen towards making two-wheelers and three-wheelers electric, the bigger need is for electric public transportation and cars. Despite the existing challenges and ambiguity inherent in the sector, major auto manufacturers are now looking at this widely untapped sector with hope.
Let’s check the all details about Mercedes Electric car.
Mercedes-Benz EQC Electric SUV
EQC is Mercedes-Benz’s first standalone EV model and falls under the brand’s new EQ sub-brand for electric mobility. With dimensions somewhere between a GLC and GLE, it offers mid-range space and practicality, but with a 408hp electric motor and a claimed range of up to 471km from its 80kWh battery, The EQC 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 80kWh 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. On the other hand, 50kW DC fast charger can juice up battery from 10-100% in just 90 minutes. The EQC looks unlike any other vehicle we’ve seen from the carmaker. Be with the piano black inserts at the front, signature LED lights up front, 20-inch alloys with blue detailing, or the clean rear end, the EQC looks contemporary and sophisticated.
