Мercedes-Benz officially confirmed the date of the debut of its first fully electric crossover EQ C. As expected, the model will be presented on September 4. This event was timed to coincide with a new video teaser of the SUV.
Daimler put out a tweet over the weekend that included a quick preview of the EQC. It only shows the front end – and just a corner of the front end, and it seems that it’s the best look at the EQC that we’ve seen thus far.
” Mercedes-Benz is flipping the switch: On September 4th, we will present our first all-electric Mercedes-Benz model of our new EQ brand. Here’s the very first design detail.”- says the car maker’s tweet, hinting that there will be new teasers before the debut.
We don’t know much about the EQC beyond the fact that it should be sized about the same as the current GLC-Class SUV. The EQ name will continue on with other models, since that’s Mercedes’ new designation for its battery-electric vehicles. While the Generation EQ concept that preceded this car made 516 pound-feet of torque and featured a 0-to-60 time under 5 seconds, something tells us that it’ll be softened down a bit for production. We’ll find out in just about a week!
Mercedes-Benz will pull the cover off the EQC exactly one week from today, on September 4. The SUV will be presented at a special event held in Sweden’s capital, Stockholm, and that’s when full specifications should be released.
