When you want to go electric with your car, because it seems to be the right thing to do, but you don’t want to give up all the luxury of your Mercedes Benz, there is now a solution. Mercedes has gone fully electric with their EQC brand.
The Fully Electric Mercedes
The new Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4MATIC gives you everything you want in your SUV, but it’s 100% electric for doing your part in helping save the environment from fossil fuels. The EQC 400 has all the power and comfort of an all-wheel drive SUV. It’s starting price is $67,900.
Charging up your EQC 400 can be done in 10 hours for a full charge using your wall unit at home. When you use DC Fast Charging, it cuts charging time from 10% to 80% to just 40 minutes.
You can plug your car into your 110v outlets however, it’ll take a long time to charge. The EQ is meant to charge on a 240V charging station. When you purchase your EQ 400, ask about installing a 240V charging station at your home, it’s easy to do.
You might think of an electric car as a glorified golf-cart, but that just isn’t so. This car will go 110mph. So, it is going to get you where you want to go very quickly. While it’ll take longer if you reach peak speeds then have to wait on the side of the road while the cop writes you a speeding ticket, it’ll go the speed limit just fine, too. Acceleration is rated at 4.8 for 0-60mph.
When You Can Buy One
Ask your Mercedes dealership to put you on their mailing, list so you’ll be notified when these are going to be available in the US. They are expected to be released in early 2020.
