If you’re looking for the some of the longest-legged and most usable electric cars in the world, this chart is where you’ll find them. This is where Teslas do battle with Mercedes EQs, BMW i cars, Audi E-trons, even new-groove Porsches and Polestars. If you’ve got a bigger budget to spend on an electrically powered family car to use and rely on for any kind of trip, then, with claimed ranges of up to 400 miles and beyond, these are your main contenders.
After the EQC was released, it was followed by the EQV in 2020. However, 2021 was the year Mercedes-Benz went all out with the EV launches. In the last ten months, we saw the introduction of the EQA, EQB, EQS, and EQE.
But over in the US, Mercedes-Benz’s electric push isn’t as loud as it could be. The only electric model offered is the EQS, which only made its local debut recently. That’s despite the fact that the EQC has been around longer. There is good news, though, as the electric crossover will arrive in the US eventually. It’ll be a pretty long wait, though, as it’s set for a 2025 launch.
That’s according to Automotive News 🔒, who interviewed Mercedes-Benz USA CEO, Dimitris Psillakis. The report adds that we shouldn’t expect the current-generation EQC to land in the US. Instead, it will be the second-generation model that will be offered. With that, the all-new EQC won’t use an adapted platform from a current model. The 2025 model will use a dedicated EV architecture instead of a modified ICE chassis.
