Mercedes EQC caught on tests in the Nurburgring looks like the Tesla killer

The company Mercedes is preparing its electric first-born under the brand EQ. The future EQ C SUV is undergoing road tests at the Nurburgring ring, and the video shows that he can become the “killer” of the Tesla Model X.

Photoplayers managed to capture the pre-series tests of the first electric car from Mercedes. In the framework of passable tests, the future EQ C SUV was tested. The premiere will be held this fall. As noted by foreign experts, the novelty of the German concern may well exceed the Tesla Model X.

No, experts do not argue that the SUV will be faster or more powerful, but the company Mercedes can offer something else. It’s about luxury, real comfort and premium interior materials.

The Germans can create a car, at the purchase of which the customer can confidently say “yes, I gave $ 100,000, but I bought a Mercedes”. Whether it will be in reality is still unknown.

Fully electric SUV EQ C was announced two years ago with the help of the same name concept. As already mentioned, the serial version will be shown in the fall, possibly at the Frankfurt or Paris salon. However, mass production will be established only in the next year, and by 2022 the company will present ten models of electric cars. Therefore, those who want to buy something else do not have to wait too long.

What we saw on the video is still a good enough option for a family car. As a power unit will be installed two electric motors with a capacity of 150 kW-hours. The total capacity of the electrical installation will be about 400 horsepower, and naturally two electric motors will ensure the operation of the all-wheel drive.

It is assumed that acceleration to 100 km / h will take about 5 seconds. Naturally, this is far from the results of P100D, but Mercedes does not aspire to them. The German SUV will offer its own features, including a proprietary infotainment system MBUX, an electronic assistant with AI, as well as a flexible adjustment of efforts for the regeneration of brake energy.

Also we will remind, that in the autumn one more novelty will be presented – a cross-coupe Mercedes-Benz GLE. The car will be built on the basis of a modern platform MHA, and will compete for the BMW X6. But now the company declassified the interior design
