While luxury SUVs aren’t difficult to find here in Peoria, AZ, luxury electric SUVs are a bit more difficult to find. However, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz EQC is ready to provide you with a comfortable, powerful, and efficient electric vehicle option.
You’ll find some rather familiar technologies inside the EQC, including 64-color ambient lighting, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience infotainment system, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®. You’ll also find some helpful safety technology features, including Active Brake Assist, Speed Limit Assist, and Active Distance Assist. While these safety features should not solely be relied upon when you drive, they are helpful tools to assist you as you drive.
Speaking of driving, you’ll find the DYNAMIC SELECT® feature on the EQC, but its drive modes have been tweaked to fit an EV model. There’s also plenty of power available to you when you drive an EQC. Let’s take a closer look.
Unlike some other all-electric SUVs, the Mercedes-Benz EQC has the capability to charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in only 40 minutes. So, while you can’t ‘refuel’ as fast as a gas model, your charging time isn’t as bad as it could be. You’ll also find 402 horsepower and 561 lb.-ft. of torque available to you, which also helps enable the EQC to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in only 4.8 seconds. Paired with this powertrain is the 4MATIC®* all-wheel drivetrain. So, yes, your all-electric luxury SUV still has all-wheel drive.
