Given this is Mercedes' first real electric vehicle, the story is really what is powering the EQC.
The official Mercedes-Benz press release lists the EQC's range at "up to 200 miles", which falls pretty far short of the Tesla Model X 75D's claimed 237 miles of range, the Jaguar I-Pace's claimed 240 miles of range, and wouldn't even keep up with the 2019 Hyundai Kona EV or Chevy Bolt. Upon its arrival in a showroom, in Stockholm, Sweden, this Tuesday, it would officially mark as the day that Tesla has finally met its match in the premium battery cars segment.
The Model X 75D gets 75Kwh battery pack while I-Pace has a bigger 90Kwh powerhouse.
Mercedes-Benz has launched its first all-electric SUV as luxury auto makers increase their focus on the burgeoning electric vehicle market that is now dominated by Tesla Inc. EQ stands for Electric Intelligence, and will be applied to future electric models. Aside from the usual crash tests and regular developments and so on, the EQC has received further safety attention surrounding the battery and components that carry electricity. Mercedes EV comes at a time when GM is investing heavily in a new fast-charging technology, which outpaces Tesla by a factor of 3, allowing a fast-charging of 180 miles in 10 minutes.
Powering the new electric SUV will be two motors placed on both the axles with an 80kWh lithium ion battery.
Another comparison between Tesla and Mercedes-Benz comes to their vehicle production line.
The company meant to invest 10 billion euros ($12 billion) in its electric-vehicle push but has ended up spending "more than that", he said, without specifying figures.

Mercedes promised an official US range a little later, closer to the market debut of the EQC 400, which is not unusual given the market-specific certification, but it will likely be a bit south of the 279-mile NEDC figure.
