Our neighbour Norway is like a paradise for elbilsälskare, the capital of Oslo is a pure garden of Eden. The reason is the powerful subsidies from the state plus the permission to drive in bus lanes if it is at least two in the car. Among other things. In combination with the country's green electricity produced, in principle, exclusively from hydropower, is the traffic in the big city crammed with electric cars. Leaf, i3, e-Golf, In-Pace, and Teslamodeller of all kinds – everywhere you look you see them.
the Main competitor number one to the Mercedes EQC 400 4Matic is definitely the Audi e-tron 55 the quattro. The Mercedes is slightly smaller in all axes but innerutrymmena different el-the germans not so much. There is no more sip the format of the EQC is a advantage, e-top width of 194 centimeters can sometimes make it in the complicated maneuvers. When is the six centimeters narrower Mercedesen preferred.
have been spent to make the EQC quiet and comfortable. It was important to isolate it away whining ”spårvagnsljudet” generated by the electric motors as well as to mitigate away so much of the ingress noise from the bodywork, tyres and wind noise. The electric motors on the front and rear axle is fully encapsulated and suspended in a special separate frames, which in turn is dämpisolerade from the rest of the bodywork and the chassis.the driving environment is familiar from the A-class.

Mercedes EQC 400 4Matic moves very much like a regular conventional Mercedes on the road. Are you not a car or a lover, you would probably not notice that the car is driven with the electric power until it was time to refuel, hrm...download.
in terms of Design has EQC's own style, of course, it is obvious that the car is based on GLC but Mercedes head of design Gordon Wagener has managed to create a semi-new feeling. Rear end is an eclectic mix of the firm's different styles of suv, hatchback and crossovercoupé – the end result is very much the Mercedes-Benz with its typical character of round shapes mixed with a high degree of detail.the Rear end has influences from a variety of Mercedesmodeller.

continue on the same line with the high recognition, mixed with, for example, the curious roséfärgade vents, MBUX-instrumentkluster from the A-class but also a center stack in glossy black plastic directly from the GLC. The latter stands in the eyes as a sign of cost-cutting in an otherwise qualified interior.
Maurice Girod is aerodynamikexpert and clearly shows on the air currents as the father over the EQC. Despite the fact that the car has the conventional large rear-view mirrors and the lack of a retractable door handle (which is usually the ”standard” of the streamlined bodywork) is luftmotståndsvärdet low to 0.29.
Dual electric motors with a system output of 408 horsepower and maximum torque of 760 newton meters of torque sending the EQC 0-100 km/h in 5,1 seconds. The battery has a capacity of 80 kWh, and weighs 652 pounds. it occupies the whole of the base plate.
in mixed driving, according to the new test cycle WLTP is reported to be 2.2 kWh per mile but when I'm spinning around between Hønefoss, Holmenkollen and the Karl Johan shows the on-board computer double the figure look as close.
Depending on the style of driving is the range between 374 and 417 km. The optimum temperature for a batterielbil is Swedish daylight saving time, 20-25 degrees. Cooling, respectively, heating of the battery pack is essential for consumption, charging, and durability.
during Winter, a cold battery take a lot longer to load than a properly tempered. Liquid cooled ombordladdare allows the effects of up to 7.4 kilowatts. At the special quick charger can EQC handle up to 110 kilowatts power. Then you should be able to charge the battery from 10% to 80% in 40 minutes.Here we see, inter alia, scope, and energy consumption. Photo: Hans Hedberg
improve the drivlinans the optimisation of energy introduces the Mercedes EQ techniques ECO Assistant, which means that the electric generation of the recovered kinetic energy is possible to regulate gradually. The default mode is Auto takes care of everything in the best way but for teknikfreaks with green thoughts via rattpaddlarna play between different modes, from the minimum resistance to the strong deceleration that you do not need to use the mechanical brakes.
After two days of kökörning in and around Oslo, with new EQC is slutintrycken good. Sure, the car feels predictable and ”ospännande” but the built-in solid Mercedes feeling is convincing for the most part.
Price: 789.900 crowns. Privatleasing is set to 10.195 sek/month and the Fleet-leasing to 8.995 kr/month plus vat. As usual, offered a pamphlet with different equipment packages and a -levels, but the basic model is ”sufficiently” equipped from the start.
Production of the Mercedes EQC 400 4Matic in Germany starts after the summer, the first customer cars delivered in the last quarter.
