Mercedes Rolls Out New Electric Car To Taker On Tesla

  • Mercedes EQC

It's the most hotly anticipated Mercedes-Benz model this year, especially for the budding new age of consumers who are more concerned about saving the planet than outright speed or shows of luxury.

Interestingly, Mercedes is preparing to present its first exclusively electric model, the EQC family SUV not in Germany, but in Stockholm, Sweden.

When Tesla first launched the Roadster, it proved that it could build a world-class electric vehicle (EV) with a realistic driving range and titillating performance.

We hope the production vehicle in 2020 can outperform Mercedes-Benz's range prediction; when so many consumers grade BEVs on how far they'll go on a single charge, the EQC gets fewer miles-per-kWh than logical rivals like the, Tesla Model X, and. In addition, a few weeks after the premiere EQC debut electric crossover Audi e-tron, but the latter is much superior to all of the above models.

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a new all-electric SUV, which it says will be the first in a new electric vehicle range. He added, "Electric drive is a major component in the mobility of the future".

Speaking of energy, the 80-kWh battery places the EQC a little south of the competition, which will include the Jaguar i-Pace with its 90-kWh battery and Audi e-tron with its 95-kWh battery.




The model, dubbed EQC, is an all-wheel drive SUV with a range of more than 200 miles.

Another comparison between Tesla and Mercedes-Benz comes to their auto production line.

One of the most significant primary features for electric cars id their battery range. It is faster still with DC charging - which is standard for the EQC - for example via CCS (Combined Charging Systems) in Europe and the USA. Further, the EV would offer ambient lights in 64 different colors and would be equipped with Mercedes-Benz's driver assistance package. "We are therefore investing more than 10 billion euros in the expansion of our EQ model portfolio, and more than one billion euros in global battery production".

"The planning assumption we have made for the battery electric vehicles, for the calendar year 2025 - so that we can have kind of a stake in the ground so we can do our industrialisation planning on - is a range of between 15 and 25 per cent for fully battery electric vehicles".

Jaguar Land Rover has also introduced its first all-electric vehicle, the I-Pace.

Audi on Monday began production of its e-Tron SUV ahead of a September 17 sales launch jamboree in San Francisco, just 40 miles from Tesla's Fremont assembly plant. Prices are yet to be confirmed.
