Daimler’s Tesla killer EQC 400 starts production at Bremen

Daimler announces the Mercedes-Benz EQC can be ordered in German showrooms from today starting at €71,281.

“With the Mercedes-Benz EQC, we are entering a new era of mobility. It is part of the growing family of all-electric vehicles at Mercedes-Benz and combines brand-defining features such as quality, safety and comfort,” said Britta Seeger, Mercedes-Benz cars sales.

“We offer our customers progressive design and unique ride comfort – and this with a range absolutely suitable for everyday use.”

The first EQC rolled off the production line at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen, on the same line as the C-Class Saloon and Estate as well as the GLC and GLC Coupé.

Alongside Bremen, the Sino-German production joint venture Beijing Benz Automotive Co. Ltd. (BBAC) will start production of the EQC later this year – for the local market in China.

Production of vehicles with various drive systems can be adapted variably and efficiently in line with market demand, says Daimler.

This approach is an ideal way to ensure the best possible use of capacity at the plant, and guarantee high Mercedes-Benz production and quality standards, said the company in a press release.

In future the worldwide battery production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars will consist of nine plants on three continents.

MBUX developed specifically for EQC.
Features and services developed specifically to meet electric mobility requirements are used exclusively for EQ brand models: the Remote and Navigation Services that come as standard for the EQC pool a range of electric-driving functions.

These allow EQC-optimised navigation with range-optimised route planning including charging stops, customised charging settings, and pre-entry climate control in the vehicle.

Instruments were developed for Mercedes-Benz EQC, such as the power meter in the right tube of the instrument display, which replaces the rev counter.

Another highlight is the intelligent driver assistance with five different drive programs and five customisable recuperation levels that can be adapted based on the vehicle speed and route.

In time for the Mercedes-Benz EQC launch there will be a “Holiday Mobility Package” available for customers in Germany.

Through access to a Mercedes-Benz rental vehicle with a traditional combustion engine, the customer will be able to travel further distances on holiday in areas that do not yet have sufficient charging infrastructure.[

Together with a market-specific charging installation partner, Mercedes-Benz additionally offers fast and simple installation of the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox and professional e-mobility advice. R
Standard equipment for the EQC includes extensive digital services that allow worry-free electric driving and charging.

The EQC-optimised navigation system automatically calculates a fast and comfortable route with short charging times and minimum charging stops. Off-board planning of the route is also possible by using the Mercedes me App.

Pre-entry climate control ensures that the vehicle interior is at the desired temperature on departure.

Dynamic route adjustment is possible thanks to the inclusion of vehicle data such as the current battery charge level as well as information about the route, weather and available charging stations.

Thanks to EQC-optimised navigation, Mercedes-Benz customers can easily find charging stations, and Mercedes me Charge gives them convenient access to the charging stations of numerous providers in different countries.
