Electric SUV Mercedes EQC 4 × 4² tested in Italy

October 22, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The German company has produced quite a few SUVs in recent years and the EQC 4×4² concept unveiled last week is one of the most unique.

Although this unique vehicle is based on EQC for use on normal roads, it follows in the footsteps of the E 400 All-Terrain 4 x4² concept, which was introduced a few years ago. Thus, it is about 20 cm taller than the regular road model and has a ground clearance of 293 mm.

To test the concept, the car manufacturer recently traveled to Italy with several well-known bloggers. The EQC 4×4² SUV was tested off-road near the town of Bardoneche, as evidenced by a video on Benjamin Ortega’s YoyTube channel. Thus, the Mercedes EQC 4×4² has been tested in a series of extremely difficult and dangerous conditions, including driving up and down mountain roads covered with snow.

The key to the off-road performance of the EQC 4×4² is its new multi-link axles, which not only increase ground clearance, but also ensure that the electric vehicle can cross fords up to 40 cm deep and also has an entry and exit angle of 31.8 and 33 degrees. The steering angle is also increased by 12.6 degrees to 24.2, and the 285/50 R20 tires further develop the vehicle’s capabilities.

The technical part of the EQC 4×4² has remained unchanged compared to the conventional road-going EQC 400. It thus has a pair of electric motors that produce 408 hp. and 762 Nm of torque, powered by a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 80 kWh.
