The EQC - The First Ever All-Electric Car from Mercedes-Benz

New Tesla Roadster REVEALED in Europe

On the inside, the EQC, as Mercedes says, features "avante-garde electro-look" with the MBUX user interface system.

Still, here's what we were able gather: The first-ever model will have a release date of September 4, which is today, in Stockholm. (A company representative said figures for models destined for the USA will remain unconfirmed until closer to market launch.) Forty minutes on a 110 kW outlet will get the vehicle to 80 percent of a full charge.

As electric cars take over from combustion engines, in coming years, Daimler plans to offer 10 fully electric cars by 2022. However, a closer look does reveal more than enough design cues to give away the fact this is a Mercedes crossover SUV with an alternative powertrain.

The German luxury brand on Tuesday unveiled its first all-electric vehicle, the EQC, in Stockholm. He added, "Electric drive is a major component in the mobility of the future". It will contend with the upcoming Audi e-tron and BMW iX3 in the same class, and the already-launched Jaguar I-PACE crossover.

For the EQC, power comes from an 80-kWh battery mated to a water-cooled onboard charger rated at 7.4 kW, Depending on what charging output is chosen, 80 percent of the car's battery can be up and ready in 40 minutes.

But the big question these days is distance between charges and here the EQC's 80kWh lithium-ion battery is said to offer a range of over 450km when measured on the NEDC cycle, which may not be all that realistic however.

On the road, the Mercedes EQC is expected to last for about 250 miles per single charge. To underscore the shift, Mercedes will spend 1 billion euros on battery production to create a network of eight facilities globally.

Another comparison between Tesla and Mercedes-Benz comes to their auto production line. The new EQC will be integrated into ongoing series production as a fully electric vehicle.

The vehicle, which will be available in the United States in 2020, will mark the debut of the German carmaker's electric "EQ" marque.

We've covered Jaguar Land Rover thoroughly of late, charting its 10-year progress under Tata Motors and in this week's paper, exploring the marketing challenges.

Audi has yet to reveal its e-tron electric SUV in full but it has started production of the mid-size zero-emission vehicle at its factory in Belgium. Prices are yet to be confirmed.
