After years of rumors and potential concept visions leaked online Mercedes-Benz might actually produce its’ first all-electric SUV for the masses. In the recent years the high-end manufactures have found success in producing SUVs but Tesla has been the only car maker to really attack the all-electric SUV market. Mercedes plans to go head-to-head with Elon with their EQC pictured.
“EQ” meaning electric intelligence will start production in 2019 with an expected driving range of 280-miles. Lithium-ion batteries will power the EQC that will top out at 110 mph and a 0-60 in 5.1 seconds. Daimler during the EQC debut said that by 2022 will be its electric year with 10 electric models in production and on the road.
At the moment there is not price tag on the EQ model but is being labeled the Model X rival which comes in price range of $90-110K.
