The first luxury electric car is finally here. The much anticipated 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC is just about ready to hit the roads. In the EQC you can expect excellent straight-line performance, a comfortable and luxurious ride, lots of energy management features and well-implemented one-pedal driving. It has taken luxury automakers like Mercedes-Benz quite some time to perfect the all-electric car, but they are ready to throw their hat in the ring for the 2020 model year. The EQC has been surrounded with excitement for years and now that it is finally here, here are some things you should know.
The EQC mirrors the GLC from a distance. This is not by accident. The EQC rides the same wheelbase as the GLC and because of this, many of the exterior designs also carry over. Though they might look similar, there are of course some key differences. In the front there is a largely closed-off grille flanked by blue-tinged LED headlamps. Additionally, depending on how you spec your EQC, it might have a set of pronounced running boards. Inside the EQC is 100% what you would expect from any Mercedes-Benz. Quilted two-tone seating with rose gold aluminum trim accents. Ambient blue lighting running behind the infotainment system that gives a slick and sexy appearance behind this Mercedes-Benz model. Inside and out, the EQC design is nothing but impressive.
The EQC also comes equip with MBUX, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience. It is filled with layers of advanced language and gesture controls on top of the company’s new touchscreen interface. The AI can do everything from discriminating between driver and passenger inputs to detecting motion near the center screen and allow drivers/passengers to perform certain actions without physically touching a control.
Aside from MBUX, the EQC has more technology that boasts luxury. The integration between the “EQ” display that shows charge, regen, and output and the navigation system is truly something to take note of. When planning a trip, users can set minimum battery level thresholds for both charging stops and the end of a trip. The EQ software and navigation system work together and negotiate a route that fits your trip requirements. With this feature, Mercedes-Benz is using information and control to defeat range anxiety.
From interior and exterior design to AI and other technology, the 2020 EQC is ready to dominate the luxury all-electric car market. More news and information on the U.S. EQC will continue drop as this year comes to a close.
