The new Mercedes-Benz EQC
Mercedes-Benz management comments on the new EQC
"With the EQC – the first fully electric SUV from Mercedes-Benz – we are flipping the switch. Electric drive is a major component in the mobility of the future. We are therefore investing more than ten billion euros in the expansion of our EQ model portfolio, and more than one billion euros in global battery production."
Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of Daimler AG and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Cars
"The new EQC is a genuine Mercedes-Benz. This particularly applies to classic attributes such as quality, safety and comfort. These are accompanied by dynamic performance, thanks to two electric motors at the front and rear axles with a combined output of 300 kW, and an intelligent operating strategy for a superior electric range. The EQC is part of a growing family of purely electrically powered vehicles from Mercedes-Benz."
Ola Källenius, member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsiblefor Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development
"Electric now has a Mercedes - with the EQC, we are putting the first Mercedes-Benz under our new technology brand EQ onto the roads. EQ stands for'Electric Intelligence,' and represents Mercedes-Benz at its most progressive. We are systematically bringing about human-centred innovation by incorporating intelligent services and networked charging solutions for our customers from the very start."
Britta Seeger, member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible forMercedes-Benz Cars Sales
"At Mercedes-Benz Cars we are integrating the EQC into our series production at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen. One major pillar of our strategy is flexibility. Our decision to produce electric vehicles on the same line as models with combustion engines enables us to respond flexibly to demand and use plant capacity to best effect. In this way we can continue to ensure both high efficiency and top quality with well-proven production processes. On the way to smart production we are already employing future-oriented Industry 4.0 solutions such as virtual and augmented reality, human-machine cooperation and big data analysis. Digital solutions help us to network Production with Development and Sales even more effectively. The electric initiative means two things for us: emission-free vehicles and 'clean' production. With a CO2-neutral energy supply to our German plants by 2022, we are actively promoting the sustainability of our production."
Markus Schäfer, Executive Board member Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain

With its seamless, clear design, the EQC is a pioneer for an avant-garde electric look with trailblazing design details and colour highlights typical of the brand both inside and out."
