New Mercedes EQ Concept ride review – The EQ might just represent the biggest shift in Mercedes’s long history of producing cars. Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2016, the EQ brand spearheads the firm’s push to future mobility, via a range of all-electric and plug-in hybrid models. The new EQ brand promises 10 fully battery powered models in Mercedes showrooms by 2025, and it’ll be introduced by the EQC, a production version of this concept car that wowed the crowds in Paris.
We’ve ridden shotgun in Mercedes most radical model ever, even if its SUV form, notwithstanding the concept-car styling, is fairly conventional. The market wants SUVs and, usefully, their high-riding stance suits electric powertrains. Mercedes engineers are not willing to discuss exactly what will power the production model in 2019, but we do know is there will be two electric motors with 300kW output, one for each axle, and that the EQC will be built on a EV-specific, scaleable platform.
The promise is a 0-62mph time of around five seconds, but more relevant is that the lithium-ion battery will have power density to allow 500km (310 miles) on a charge. The power pack will be built in Europe, by Daimler subsidiary ACCUMOTIVE, and Mercedes is investing over €1bn in its battery plant. It’ll deliver those lithium-ion batteries to Bremen, where the EQs will be built in Mercedes’s factory alongside 10 other conventionally powered current models.
