The first 2020 Mercedes EQC video reviews have started to surface on YouTube and we’ve rounded up six of them to help you make up your mind about the premium electric SUV.
All the videos have been filmed in Norway where Mercedes-Benz has decided to organize the press driving presentation. A fitting venue as that the Scandinavian country is Europe’s No. 1 market for electric vehicles. So how does the EQC fit in what is most likely the best country in the world to own an EV?
Quite well, actually, at least as far as these reviews go. The EQC is a comfortable, luxurious crossover that feels equally at home on the motorway and in the city. It’s also very relaxing to travel in thanks to the cushy ride and silent cabin. Being an SUV, it’s practical as well; however, it has a smaller trunk than rivals and it lacks a frunk.
Much like Audi with the e-tron, Mercedes-Benz has gone for a conventional look with the EQC. Both the exterior and interior look similar to other Mercedes SUVs that use internal combustion engines. This makes the EQC look familiar and the thinking behind that approach is that it may make the transition easier for buyers.
One thing customers will need time to get accustomed to is waiting for the batteries to recharge. The EQC charges at a maximum rate of 110 kW and while that’s pretty fast it can’t compare with the Tesla Model 3 which can currently charge at up to 250 kW using the latest V3 Superchargers. Then again, there’s no Tesla on the market that can get anywhere near the EQC when it comes to interior quality.
