Mercedes has slightly updated the EQC electric crossover with a new on-board charger. Now its capacity has increased from 7.4 to 11 kilowatts.

This is an AC-to-DC converter. It is unlikely that you can get more than 3.6 kilowatts from an ordinary household electrical outlet. But if you connect to a three-phase connector, then in theory you can charge with a current of up to 22 kilowatts. And the limiter in this case will be just the on-board charger.

Mercedes calculated that now charging from a similar terminal from 10 to 100% will take 7.5 hours against the previous ten.

Recall that from the fast charging terminal, which immediately supplies direct current, Mercedes can receive energy up to 110 kilowatts.

This summer, Mercedes’ rival, the British Jaguar I-Pace, has undergone exactly the same modernization. He also got an 11 kilowatt charge.
