Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 joins the all-electric auto bandwagon

Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 joins the all-electric auto bandwagon

Zetsche added that the original plan had been to invest 0 billion euros ($12 billion) on the EQC project, but the project is "more than that", he said Tuesday, without specifying figures.

The Mercedes EQC, based around a heavily modified version of the GLC platform, is not the company's first electric vehicle.

Mercedes will begin rolling out the EQC globally next year, with plans for it to arrive in the U.S.in 2020. It starts just under $70,000.

Nadal retires, Del Potro in US Open final
But, you know, he's got two days now to recover, so he's going to be fresh. "I am playing the right way and enjoying things". The Serb held comfortably and crafted five break points in the second game of the match, converting the fifth.

Establishing electric cars would also help Daimler move beyond concerns over its diesel vehicles.

As you can see, the EQC sports a slightly unusual design compared with Mercedes's current crop of vehicles. The company also showed its EQ Silver Arrow concept just last week in Pebble Beach, Calif. However, a closer look does reveal more than enough design cues to give away the fact this is a Mercedes crossover SUV with an alternative powertrain. Besides some subtle blue decorations and exterior decorations, there is a black panel running under the grill between the headlights.

Sources claim that the all-electric SUV would be integrated with a slick MBUX 10.25-inch display integrated infotainment system that dominates the dashboard, 19-inch wheels, heated seats, rose gold accents and adaptive headlights.

US Open 5th seed Anderson subdues Shapovalov in five
John Isner , the top-seeded American man at No. 11, served 20 aces in outlasting Milos Raonic of Canada 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. After the match, Nadal reflected, "He was hitting the ball very strong, it felt like I wasn't controlling the points".

An illustration of the EQC's 80kWh battery pack. One powers each axle to make the Mercedes EV all-wheel drive, and the total system output is a very useful 402bhp (300kW) with peak torque of 765Nm. Despite this coaching, the EQC will still offer a range of drive modes, including Sport, like other Mercedes-Benz products. Both of those times are slightly slower than the I-Pace, though at 187.4 inches long, the EQC 400 is the longer of the two and likely the heavier. (A company representative said figures for models destined for the USA will remain unconfirmed until closer to market launch.) Forty minutes on a 110 kW outlet will get the vehicle to 80 percent of a full charge.

The Germans' combined market share of the electric-car market will surpass Tesla's to reach 11.8 per cent in 2020 before increasing further to about 19 per cent three years later, Reuters noted, citing projections by forecaster LMC Automotive.

Of course, we can't comment on the handling of the vehicle yet, and there's always the pull of that Mercedes badge and image to lure in customers, so maybe it will be able to corner a section of the market regardless.
