Mercedes-Benz has introduced a unique electric all-terrain vehicle for extreme sports.

This was reported by the press service of the manufacturer. The EQC 4×4² concept model is based on the serial EQC 400 4Matic electric crossover.

Compared to the basic version, the car received an increased ground clearance of 293 mm (+ 153 mm), wheel arch extensions 10 cm wide, 20-inch wheels with off-road tires and portal axles. Thanks to all these improvements, the car has a high geometric cross-country ability, which makes it easy to overcome rough terrain.

In addition, the all-terrain vehicle was equipped with a unique sound generation system AVAS (Acoustic Vehicle Alert System), which produces appropriate sounds when driving and in parking. The sound intensity changes depending on the position of the accelerator pedal, speed and battery level. A similar system is used on the serial EQC, but the new product received its own more powerful sound, and the speakers are hidden in the headlight housing. This is how the term “lampspeaker” was born.

The EQC 4×4² Concept is the third representative of the 4×4² family from Mercedes-Benz. In September 2015, the company organized a small-scale production of the G 500 4×4² model. And in 2017, the E 400 All-Terrain 4×4² concept was released.
