Mercedes-Benz has just released another online teaser of their all-electric EQC SUV, this time showing the EQC’s interior. The company earlier showed a short glimpse of the rear design of the new all-electric premium SUV.
While the exterior of the vehicle is largely based on the popular Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class SUV, the dashboard gets a completely new design. Seen in the photo is the layout of their now-signature dual-LCD Widescreen Cockpit, with newly designed rectangular air-conditioning outlets, breaking the norm of the circular-shaped designs.
It looks like the design elements of the EQ Concept SUV have been carefully replicated into the production EQC.
Moving our focus to the lower console highlights a different COMAND touch pad. The design, squarer and slimmer in this EQC is closer to the one found in the new A-Class and upcoming GLC F-Cell.
Another interesting note is a switch that resembles a paddle-shifter on the steering wheel.
To recap, EQ (electric intelligence) is Mercedes-Benz’s new sub-brand that encompasses all future battery-electric cars as well as the associated products and services. The first product from the all-electric brand will be the said EQC SUV, followed by the A-class-sized compact called the EQA later. In total, more than ten new electric passenger cars are scheduled to be launched by 2022.
Earlier this year, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia brought over the one-and-only Concept EQ for a quick demonstration and display purposes. In the Concept EQ, the all-electric SUV similar in size to the Mercedes-Benz GLC-class is capable of going up to 500 kilometres on a single charge, with a 70 kWh lithium-ion battery. With 700 Nm of torque and 402 hp on hand, the Concept EQ can perform the benchmark 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in under 5 seconds.
Mercedes-Benz will make the global unveiling in Stockholm, Sweden on Tuesday, and has also announced that sales of the new EQC will only be starting in 2019.
