Mercedes-Benz has announced the prices and trim levels on its new EQC – its first dedicated EV.
The EQC is set to offer a 259-mile electric range, thanks to its 80kWh battery, with its electric motor developing 402bhp and 765Nm of torque. That should allow for a 0-60mph time of 4.9 seconds, with a top speed of 111mph possible.
Mercedes-Benz’s latest MBUX infotainment system also features, while bringing dedicated EV trinkets such as a revised satellite navigation that can highlight available charging points. Standard features such as voice recognition operated using the command words ‘Hey Mercedes’ will still be included, too.
Prices start from £65,640 for the EQC 400 4Matic in Sport trim, which is just a touch more expensive than the Jaguar I-Pace, but noticeably cheaper than the Audi e-tron and Tesla Model X.
Standard equipment is superb, with entry-level versions coming with highlights such as Multibeam LED headlights, park assist, a 10.25-inch touchscreen and 19-inch alloys.
AMG Line (£67,635) adds larger 20-inch alloy wheels, AMG sports styling kit, gloss black detailing and AMG sports seats.
Next is AMG Line Premium (£72,280), which adds luxury touches such as a panoramic sunroof, a Burmester sound system, a developed version of the MBUX infotainment system and wireless charging.
Sitting at the top of the range of the standard line-up is the AMG Line Premium Plus, which brings features such as on-call services, a 360-degree parking camera and memory seats for £74,530.
It’s also available as a first edition (Edition 1) and as a limited edition ‘Edition 1886’ model, which are priced from £74,440 and £79,260 respectively.See Available Mercedes-Benz deals
