Mercedes-Benz EQC Production Begins in Europe

The first units of the Mercedes-Benz EQC began leaving the production line in Germany today.

European Mercedes-Benz EQC models are rolling off the Bremen, Germany production line starting today. They will be staying in the country for now with the first North American EQC models not planned until 2020.

Pricing has been set at less than 60,000 Euros in Germany with top-of-the-line models going for over 71,000 Euros, which translates into a Canadian price range of roughly $90,000 to $106,000. That said, it’s too early to know if that’s the price point Mercedes-Benz Canada intends to slap on Canadian versions of the new EQC. Reservations are open in Canada for the new EQC, but pricing won’t be known for a while.

The EQC’s main rival, the Audi e-tron, starts at $90,000 while a second competitor, the Jaguar I-Pace, is priced at $89,800.

EPA testing hasn’t been completed for the Mercedes-Benz EQC, but the German automaker expects the all-electric range to be around 450 kilometers in European testing. That would put the EQC at around 375 kilometers in Canada. The Audi e-tron has a range of 328 kilometers while the Jaguar I-Pace is rated at 377 kilometers.

The Mercedes-Benz EQC was unveiled last September in Sweden and is the first of a lineup of planned Mercedes-Benz EQ electric vehicles. We will be headed to Norway next week to test drive the new EQC for the very first time, so stay tuned!
