Hands on with the New EQC.
The EQC isn't the first electric Mercedes, but it is the first of a new generation of EQ electric cars from the German brand. As the name indicates, it's of similar size to the Mercedes C-Class and GLC, but with a theoretical range of over 400 kilometres and over 400hp on tap, it's priced to compete with the other premium electric SUVs on the market.
One glance at the Mercedes EQC is enough to confirm that the aerodynamicists had a large part to play in shaping this EV; it looks smooth and there are no roof rails. That does, perhaps, lend to a little blandness from some angles, but that's recovered somewhat by expressive LED lighting front and rear, plus a distinctive new take on the Mercedes 'grille' featuring a prominent three-pointed star in the middle. That looks quite different in standard and AMG Line specification pictured here. The latter adds running boards, too. There are several cool wheel designs to choose from and even a silky matt-finish paint option if your pockets are deep enough.
