Mercedes-Benz Reveals First All-Electric Car

Mercedes-Benz revealed its first all-electric car called EQC at an event in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Mercedes-Benz EQC is an electric SUV with up to 200 miles of range.

The German automaker announced the initial concept at the Paris Motor Show about two years ago.

Mercedes head Dieter Zetsche called the car a “dawn of a new era” for the company.

The car’s full name is Mercedes-Benz EQC400 4MATIC. It will go on sale in the United States (US) in 2020.

The company has not announced the price yet, but they will start making the car in Germany in 2019. They plan to produce the car in China and the US later.

The car can travel around 200 miles on a full charge. The 80kWh battery pack can go from 10% to 80% in 40 minutes with DC fast chargers.

The EQC can go from 0 to 60mph in 4.9 seconds. It uses Mercedes-Benz’s new MBUX user interface and infotainment system and comes with two 10.25inch digital displays. It has heated seats, rose-gold accents, and adaptive headlights.

The MBUX is the automaker’s own voice assistant, which is said to create a new experience for drivers. The system can adjust the temperature in the car, send text messages, and provide location assistance, all through voice command.

The system is smart enough to respond to indirect commands like “Hey Mercedes, I’m cold.”

Mercedes-Benz has been focusing on making its cars more electric. The company already makes hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles, but the EQC is its first fully electric car.

The EQC is aimed at the luxury market. When the SUV is launched in 2020, it will compete with electric vehicles from Tesla, BMW, Audi, Porsche, and Jaguar.
