Mercedes let Jaguar (I-Pace) and Audi (e-tron) take the right path, but now sets a much clearer sign in terms of e-mobility. In the European e-mobility capital of Oslo, Swabia requested their first test drive with EQC, the first new EQ-electric Mercedes model. Outwardly the typical premium SUV, Stuttgart exceeds in the interior itself. There is no copy room design, but an independent element that is noble, intelligent, harmonious. And still typical of Mercedes.
Driving works very quietly – except for soft noise at higher speeds. There is no annoying ringing of electric motors, no wind noise at urban speeds. Unique!
Incidentally, "EQC 400" is in the back of the SUV. In the gas burner the Mercedes expert will say: a 4.0 liter engine, anyway! But with future E-models? There is a number for that achievement. In this case, 400 hp (although actually 407 hp). Each ZF electric motor drives the front and rear wheels. Even though the power is distributed evenly, the drive in front takes over work when starting or at low speeds, the rear engine is responsible for dynamic power ranges – namely: high speed (up to 12,000 revolutions / minute). Together, the drive produces 760 Newton meters.
Energy can recover both electric motors, the front is the main electricity producer. Braking decelerations can be selected in five stages: from D + (sailing) to D– (strong recovery). Eco-Assist in turn helps save electricity. Among other things, the accelerator pedal is fixed so that the permitted speed limit cannot be exceeded. Only after a strong kick can the pedal continue to push. But also alternately, intersections, roundabouts and slope assistants become active. Save electricity (almost) at any price.
Electricity is stored in a water-cooled battery, 652 kg 80 kWh. Very flat construction to build a Mercedes at the bottom of the car body. The low center of gravity helps increase the stability of driving a high SUV.
Twist movement in the curve? Wrong! Officially, EQC curves through the SUV segment, "but this car is not made for off-road use," said Michael Kelz, head of EQC development. "Ruins, but not abroad."
EQC can be ordered online. Starting price: € 75,000. Luxury Stromer came to Austria in October.
Mercedes EQC: Technology
Cell 384 for a 80 kWh lithium-ion battery supplied by LG. The battery pack is produced at the Mercedes Kamenz factory. Memory can be filled with 110 kW (direct current) or 7.4 kW (alternating current). After 40 minutes at the 110 kW station, the storage is 80 percent full. On wallbox (7.4 kW, 16A per phase) full load (10 to 100 percent) takes 11 hours. The WLTP range varies depending on equipment between 370 and 420 kilometers. Head of development Michael Kelz talks about "realistic 360 kilometers". In winter "260 to 270 kilometers". In 5.1 seconds, EQC accelerates from 0 to 100. Peak: 180 km / h (abgeregelt). Sidewalk weight: 2495 kg. Trailer load: 1800 kg.
