The company Mercedes-Benz has published a video with the final tests of the electric crossover EQC. Tests of the car, which premiered in October at the Paris Motor Show, were held in the driest and hottest place in Europe – in the Spanish desert Tabernas.

As part of the tests, Mercedes engineers tested the performance of power units, batteries and air conditioning system, as well as the degree of protection of the interior and components of the car from fine dust.

The first prototype of the future electric crossover EQC was introduced in 2016 at the Paris Motor Show. The concept was equipped with two units (one on each axis), which together give out 300 kW (408 horsepower). The car can accelerate from a place to 100 km / h in less than five seconds.

The engines are powered by a battery pack of 70 kWh, which provide the maximum power reserve without recharging up to 500 kilometers.
