Mercedes-Benz has been making some pretty significant waves recently by announcing that they will be making their first ever electric vehicle built to be electric from the ground up. Their EQC electric SUV has been shown off in the past, but the recently teased video the German automaker has revealed is giving us a closer look at what the production model is shaping up to be.
After Mercedes-Benz announced that they would be unveiling the EQC electric SUV on September 4th, we figured it would only be a matter of time before the automaker decided to tease some promotional images or video clips in order to help build some anticipation for the coming days. As expected, it would appear as though that time is right now.
Yesterday, Mercedes-Benz revealed a short video clip showing off what we suspect will be the production version of the EQC, which you can check out below.
While roughly only 30 seconds, the teaser did a pretty stellar job at showing us just enough to get our attention, while still leaving us wanting more.
As it tends to be the case with most teasers, we still don’t know a whole lot about what exactly the EQC is made of just yet. So far, we know that the EQC should be toting a pretty competitive range, ‘good for 500 kilometers’ (310 miles) thanks to the 70 kWh battery pack it will be equipped with, and that it should be able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in about five seconds. Of course, we can expect those specifications will likely be updated on Tuesday when we get a closer look at the electric SUV.
While we’re pretty excited to get new information regarding the EQC this coming Tuesday, the electric SUV is still slated for a 2019 release. Until the day arrives, we’ll be sure to keep updated on all future developments regarding the German automaker’s ambitious new electric vehicle.
