The Mercedes EQC electric vehicle was first introduced in Europe in 2018 as a 2019 model. But it did not make it to the North American market.

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.
