Fun Facts About the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4MATIC

Mercedes-Benz EQC prototype testing in Black Forest

Earlier today, Mercedes premiered its first-ever production fully electric SUV, the Mercedes-Benz EQC.

In addition to Mercedes, German automakers BMW, Porsche and Audi are embracing EVs as they look for ways to meet tightening emission standards globally.

The maximum range for a Tesla Model X is 295 miles.

This is the first Mercedes model from the company's new EQ electric sub-brand to be revealed, and the first of what will be a total of 10 EQ models to be launched by 2022.

They are joined in the tussle to claim a significant share of the ever-growing EV market by fellow German auto manufacturers BMW and Volkswagen via their luxury brands Audi and Porsche.

"Tesla has virtually zero competition - but this will change from 2019 onwards".

The Germans' combined market share will surpass Tesla's to reach 11.8 percent in 2020 before increasing further to about 19 percent three years later, according to its projections.

Romelu Lukaku's brace was all that the visitors needed to grab their second win in the ongoing league season and rank 10th on the log.

Mercedes will showcase the new model at the Paris Motor Show in October.

He said that he did not consider any of Tesla's three current models as a direct competitor to the EQC, which was Mercedes' first launch as SUVs have found favour with customers in recent years, with their growth outpacing other vehicle types. Mercedes-Benz is calling it the "Mercedes-Benz among electric vehicles", and they're right in both literal and figurative terms. At the time, the company announced that EQ would become a new line of fully electric cars and SUVs.

The EQC will also include Mercedes-Benz's new user interface, MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience), which features a digital instrument panel and touch screen.

The launch is the centrepiece of a three-day event that features DJ sets and yoga with a YouTube star - nearly literally bending over backwards to telegraph 21st-century kudos.

The German automaker unveiled the all-electric Audi PB18 e-tron that's broad and flat, visibly inspired by the wind tunnel and the race track.

The high-end subsidiary of Volkswagen plans to take pre-orders for e-Tron with a refundable deposit of $ 1,000. Porsche recently announced the name of its Taycan electric performance vehicle, which will hit the market next year. The sharp new look planned for the vehicle has been influenced by the Essentia coupe concept unveiled at the 2018 NY auto show. Events are planned in all four cities over five days.
