After nearly two years, Mercedes-Benz is finally premiering its electric SUV coupé, the EQC. The unveiling takes place today, live from Stockholm, Sweden. The broadcast is schedule to begin at 12:30PM New York time, 9:30AM Los Angeles time. TheAutoChannel.com will carry it all right here on this very webpage.

Back in September 2016, Mercedes previewed the EQ concept at the Paris Auto Show and described it as presenting a dynamic exterior design with a new electro-look that underlines the focus on the powerful electric drive system. It will have two electric motors, with a system output that can be increased to up to 300 kW thanks to scalable battery components, and permanent all-wheel drive delivers the guarantee of dynamic high-level performance. With a range of up to 500 kilometers (300 miles) and the typical Mercedes strengths of safety, comfort, functionality and connectivity, "Generation EQ" meets every demand in terms of contemporary, sustainable mobility.

Also on the inside, the vehicle will offer innovative solutions, including a completely new interior concept. At it's concept debut in Paris, Mercedes said the vehicle is the forerunner of Mercedes-Benz's new product brand for electric mobility, EQ. The name EQ stands for "Electric Intelligence" and is derived from the Mercedes-Benz brand values of "Emotion and Intelligence".


Mercedes usually delivers on its promises, and so we expect it will live up to the hype and perform as all other Benz' do, wonderfully.
