Mercedes-Benz is preparing to introduce to the international market its first electric car in the form of a powerful and practically off-road crossover EQC. The latest photos taken from the range in Switzerland, where the model passes the latest tests and fine-tuning of the systems, speak about its readiness for sales. Like other automakers, including rival BMW with iNext, Mercedes is testing EQCs in extreme cold conditions to see how the various vehicle systems work.

 For Mercedes, the goal of winter testing covers everything from off-road capabilities to cold storage at low temperatures, especially when the heating in the cabin is turned on. Moreover, stroke range check is the most important test for an electric vehicle today.[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]
