Daimler's Bremen plant begins production of Mercedes-Benz's first electric crossover, the EQC. At the same enterprise, the assembly of the C-class sedan and station wagon, as well as the GLC crossover family, has been established.

The production process has one peculiarity: as they say in Daimler, the assembly of the crossover involves two "weddings" at once. The first, as in assembling a conventional car with an internal combustion engine, is the stage of connecting the chassis to the body. The second is to install a battery pack in an already assembled vehicle.

The batteries for the EQC crossovers are manufactured by Daimler's Accumotive in Dresden. They are delivered to the assembly line in a semi-charged state. In the future, the concern will spend more than a billion euros on the development of the global production of batteries: they will be made at several factories in Germany, as well as in China, the USA, Poland and Thailand. Later this year, the EQC will begin production at the facilities of the Chinese enterprise Beijing Benz Automotive. These machines are intended for the PRC market.

European prices are already known: EQC will offer 400 4Matic in one version at a price of 71,281 euros (about 5.2 million rubles). That's about 5,500 euros more than the cost of the Mercedes-Benz GLE. But first, a special launch version of Edition 1886 will enter the market, which, due to the richer equipment, will cost almost 85,000 euros (6.2 million rubles).

Options for the EQC include a package of electronic assistants for partially autonomous driving (2,296.7 euros), as well as AMG packages for the body and interior (1606.5 and 1,082.9 euros, respectively). In addition, customers are entitled to privileged service, access to the network of IONITY charging stations, and in Germany there is also an extended six-year warranty.

  • The power plant of the Mercedes-Benz EQC includes two electric motors with a total power of 408 hp. and an 80 kilowatt-hour battery pack. The range of the NEDC cycle reaches 471 kilometers.
