Mercedes unveiled the Mercedes EQ Concept electric vehicle at the Paris Auto Show in 2016 targeting 2019/2020 for its release. The official release date and price is yet to be determined but is expected in the first half of 2019. The Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC EV SUV is assembled at the Bremen plant in Germany. Daimler has taken the battery development and manufacturing for the EQC in-house at its Deutsche Accumotive plant in Kamenz near Dresden. By the time of the market launch, prototypes and pre-series versions of the EQC (combined power consumption: 22.2 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km, provisional data)1 will have covered several million kilometers during testing on four continents (Europe, North America, Asia and Africa). The test program comprises more than 500 individual tests. Like all Mercedes‑Benz vehicles, the EQC must absolve the demanding standard test programme.

Advanced Driver Assistance of the EQC includes new functions such as the Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC which activates predictive speed adjustment when approaching the end of a tailback. The Distronic system reduces the speed of the EQC to 100km/h (62mph) when a tailback is identified. When driving in a tailback the rescue lane function is activated which further reduce to speed to below 60km/h (38mph). The EQC 400 also includes passive safety systems such as cutting off the high-voltage system in the event of a crash. The battery pack itself also features its own multi-stage safety system for day-to-day operation. This includes e.g. monitoring the temperature, voltage, and insulation.


The 80kWh battery of the EQC 400 4 MATIC provides an estimated NEDC range of around 450km (281 miles). The battery can be charged with a 7.4kW onboard charger, the Mercedes Wallbox which is three times faster than the onboard charger or through the IONITY fast charging network at a maximum output of 110kW. Ionity is a JV network by various European auto brands in answer to Tesla’s Supercharging network. Ionity will have around 400 fast charging station by 2020, which is the same amount Tesla had in 2015. Through Mercedes me Charge drivers are navigated and provided convenient access and payment for charging stations of numerous providers.

The instrument cluster and media display (2 x 10.25-inch as standard) are housed behind a shared, continuous glass surface to form a large, free-standing screen. The EQC features the innovative multimedia system MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience – which has numerous EQ specific functions such as the display of range, charge status, and energy flow. EQ optimized navigation, driving modes, charging current and departure time can also be controlled and set via MBUX. The MBUX display has a special EQ tile where numerous EQ features are grouped. Alternatively, the user can access the EQ menu of the MBUX system directly using a key in the lower left control panel. Thanks to natural language recognition, the EQ specific voice control helps the driver to operate the EQC.

2017 Week 12 - Mercedes-Benz EQ hit by trademark complaint

A trademark complaint in China filed by Chery Auto will hamper Mercedes-Benz new electric vehicle brand EQ‘s international aspirations. The Chery eQ, one of the most popular EV micro car’s in China over the last two years share too much similarity for the German automaker to be allowed to use the name in the worlds’ largest electric vehicle market. The Chery eQ sold around 25,000 units since it’s launch in 2015, making it one of the top 10 electric vehicles in the country. Mercedes-Benz launched the EQ brand at the Paris Auto Show in late 2016 to house all its electric vehicle products and services. One can only wonder how a large corporate could have let that one slide! The EQ brand stands for “Electric Intelligence” and is the spearhead for Daimler’s efforts to have electric vehicles represent between 15% and 25% of its global sales.
