Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC EV Selling Price Is RM388,888
First shown to the world in 2016 at the Paris Motor Show, the EQC has a seamless, clear design and colour highlights typical of the brand.
This EV is a pioneer for an avant-garde electric sports SUV while representing the design idiom of Progressive Luxury.
The EQC comes with the best possible safety features, typical of Mercedes-Benz and a leader among current crop of electric vehicles on sale.
With an extended roofline, low waistline and the coupé-like roof recess at the rear, the EQC is more intimidating on the road over its petrol powered sibling, the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe which is priced at RM398,888.
The EQC is larger, more dynamic looking and offers more than a similar priced ‘gray’ imported Tesla Model X which you can only buy in Malaysia from a private importer without official Tesla warranty and after sales.
This EQC 400 4MATIC for Malaysian showrooms feature the AMG Line exterior and AMG body-styling, further finessed with a 50.8 cm (20-inch) AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels, aluminium-look running boards with rubber studs, MULTIBEAM LED headlights, and Windscreen wipers with rain sensors.
The EQC’s high-voltage lithium-ion battery is the central energy storage unit for the electric powertrain. Its high power density provides a usable energy content of approximately 80kWh (WLTP) at a weight of 655kg.
This is made possible by a modular system design with two modules of 48 cells and four modules of 72 cells, allowing the battery to be installed in the vehicle floor for a favourable centre of gravity.
The all new EQC 400 4MATIC features an alternating current charging system (AC charging) up to 11 kW and a direct current charging system (DC charging) up to 110 kW. For further ease, it will also include a charging cable for wall-box and public charging stations measuring at 5 m, straight.
Additionally, in the vehicle’s technology, Acoustic ambient protection is also included as a standard and DYNAMIC SELECT.
For the many current GLC Coupe owners who have access to EV battery charging and understand how to ‘live with an EV’, this EQC is the perfect replacement luxury vehicle when the time arrives for a new car in their garage.
At just RM388,888 you get a very handsome looking sports SUV that ‘stands out’ in the corporate car park.
