The all-new Mercedes-Benz EQC, which is the company’s first-ever dedicated all-electric vehicle, has gone on sale in the UK.

The SUV starts at £65,640 in Sport trim, topping out at £79,260 for one of the two special ‘Edition 1’ launch trims. This puts it in a similar ballpark to electric SUV rivals such as the Jaguar I-Pace and Audi e-tron.

The EQC uses an 80kWh lithium-ion battery which offers a range of 259 miles, with performance measured at 415hp and 765Nm of torque. This propels it silently from 0 to 60mph in a shade under five seconds, and onto a top speed of 111mph.

Standard specification is high, with various driver aids, LED headlights, heated front seats and 19-inch alloy wheels all included. All trim levels get Mercedes’ new MBUX infotainment system, too, which can optimise navigation routes based on charging needs.

There are then three AMG Line specifications above this, which get larger alloy wheels, sports seats in leather upholstery, a sporty body kit and gloss black trim pieces. Upgrades available include a Burmester surround sound system, wireless charging and a 360-degree parking camera.

The Mercedes-Benz EQC is the first model in the company’s new EQ range of electric vehicles, and its powertrain will be used across multiple models.
