Mercedes-Benz has just released an online teaser of their all-electric EQC SUV, with the full unveiling set for next Tuesday, September 4th in Stockholm, Sweden.
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 from ACCUMOTIVE. Be that as it may, the Concept EQ is still capable of sprinting to 100 km/h from a standstill in under 5 seconds, with 700 Nm of torque and 402 hp on hand.
Mercedes-Benz has also announced that sales of the new EQC will only be starting in 2019.
