2022 Mercedes EQC 400 Review - The Electric SUV With Hidden Character

The Mercedes EQC 400 is the first all-electric Benz - is it worth the hype?

Among the big automotive brands, Mercedes has one of the most comprehensive EV lineups currently on the market. The Mercedes EQC was introduced back in 2019 and is the first Mercedes EV. Recently, we got to drive the Mercedes EQC 400, which at this point in time, is the only available version of the compact luxury SUV. The EQC is the founder of the Mercedes’ all-electric, EQ lineup and these are our impressions.

2022 Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC Review: Tech Laden and Eager to Please

2022 Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC Review: Tech Laden and Eager to Please

The Mercedes EQS is the cream of the EV crop, and while it might be quite expensive, it blows Tesla out of the water

The barrage of electric cars has only just begun and my internal voltmeter is pinned to the right. I love this progression of the automobile and the way it’s transforming the driving experience, and the EQS is as transformative as they come.

As of today, Mercedes offers one EV in the U.S. market, and this is it - the EQS Sedan, with a starting price of $103,360 (including destination.) This commences MB’s top-down approach to fleshing out their electric offerings; soon to be joined by an SUV of the same name, an E-Class-like midsize sedan called the EQE, and a more attainable compact SUV called the EQB (not to mention a pair of racy AMG variants.) The goal is to make every newly-developed Mercedes electric-only starting in 2025, while at the same time having an EV alternative for every model the company makes. If it has an EQ in front of its alphanumeric name it’s electric.

2022 Mercedes EQS 580 Test Drive: The Definition of Luxury, Electrified

Here’s what the most powerful, non-AMG version of Mercedes’ flagship EV is like to drive

The Mercedes EQS is already on sale as the brand’s EV equivalent to the Mercedes S-Class. The EQS is currently being offered in five different flavors, two of which are AMG variants. Power ranges from 288 horsepower in the base EQS 350 to 761 horsepower in the AMG EQS 53. We recently got the chance to drive the Mercedes EQS 580, which is the most powerful version of the EQS before you step up to the AMG models. I’m here to tell you that it’s better that you’d expect.

2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE

2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE

The future of AMG is definitely electric

Times are definitely changing, and that includes how we view what a high-performance German luxury sedan should be. In the past, that would mean a big-displacement V-8 or even a V-10, and now we come at a time when silence doesn’t just mean a yes, but also breathtaking speed. This new Mercedes-AMG EQE is no exception, and it’s essentially a Mercedes-AMG E 53 and E 63 for the future.

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQB

The C-Class-sized electric crossover can seat seven people and will have a range of around 260 miles

Mercedes had unveiled the EQB back at the Shanghai Auto Show earlier this year, but it brought it to Munich and displayed it at the IAA Mobility Show as well. The EQB is the second model after the EQA and will be offered as a five-seater with an option to equip the third row. It is loaded to the gills in terms of features and will be offered in two trims Stateside – the EQB 300 and the EQB 350. The crossover is expected to arrive in 2022 as a 2023 model.

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE

The EQE is offered with a single-motor setup for now, 410 miles of WLTP-rated range, and could have a starting price of around $60,000

Mercedes-Benz was quite active at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show. It came up with five vehicles there, which included the AMG EQS, the EQG Concept, the EQB crossover, and the Maybach EQS SUV. Among this lot was also the EQE, an E-Class-based electric sedan. This baby EQS is loaded to the gills and seems like a sweet package at the onset. The only fly in the ointment is the availability of the single-motor setup, to begin with, but a dual-motor setup EQE and an AMG EQE will arrive in the future.

2022 Mercedes EQG Concept

2022 Mercedes EQG Concept

Mercedes unveiled the EQG Concept, the near-production electric alter-ego of the G-Class SUV, at the 2021 IAA Show and it looks swell

Mercedes went on an electrification spree at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show in Munich, Germany. One of the cars unveiled here was the EQG, the EQ electric equivalent of the legendary G-Class SUV, or more popularly known as the G-Wagen. The off-roader is one of the most iconic models ever built and is still going strong despite its boxy and old-school demeanor. In fact, that is the one thing that’s still attracting purists.

The company showcased the EQG Concept that follows a similar path, but with a lot of new tech. This is said to be a near-production concept, so we can expect the real deal to be revealed by next year, perhaps.

2023 Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+

The Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is heavy on tech features, feels luxurious, and now makes over 750 horses!

Mercedes-Benz unveiled the EQS earlier this year. This electric S-Class equivalent came with a whole lot of impressive specs and features that put it right on top of the EQ hierarchy. To elevate it to the next level, the German automaker introduced the AMG variant of the EQS called the EQS 53 4MATIC+ that comes with a lot more power and a few other mechanical upgrades. While it’s still not Tesla Model S Plaid-level performance, specs like 750+ horses will surely pull a lot of potential customers.

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB (Euro Spec)

The EQB is the electric equivalent of the GLB and comes with stuff like 260 mile-range, all-wheel-drive setup, and a seven-seat option

Mercedes arrived at the 2021 Shanghai Auto with a new EV called the EQB. The company revealed the EQB less than a week after it took the wraps off another EV, the EQS. The EQS drew some polarizing opinions for its looks, but there’s no denying that it is a strong, competent product. Now, the automaker has unveiled this crossover that will hit the Chinese markets first and will then be launched in Europe later this year. It will arrive Stateside sometime in 2022.

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA - Quick Review

The GLA’s all-electric brother is the EQ family’s entry-level member

First was the EQC and now Mercedes-Benz is writing another file in its all-electric history with the GLAbased EQA. At some point in the future, the Germans will release an EV version of the S-Class, dubbed EQS. Until that happens, let’s take a closer look at the EQA.

BMW M Won't Be Alone As AMG Pledges To Bask In The Electric Ambiance Too

BMW M Won’t Be Alone As AMG Pledges To Bask In The Electric Ambiance Too

One of the most fierce rivalries of this era is gearing up for the future

If you were excited to hear about the BMW M electrification, we have some more happy news for you that’s clearer and concrete than the former’s. Mercedes has confirmed that its electric portfolio, which goes under the EQ moniker, will come with AMG performance versions. AMG has been evolving with the changing times, so it comes as no surprise. Nevertheless, it’s good to get a confirmation from the decision-makers themselves.

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA

The German automaker’s entry-level electric vehicle comes with a single-motor setup and a range of around 300 miles

After launching the rather expensive EQC, Mercedes has now come up with a slightly more affordable EV that could be a game-changer for the brand. Called the EQA, it is essentially a GLA that comes with some cosmetic changes and of course, a heart transplant. Interestingly, Mercedes has used a different approach for this car.

The EQA isn’t a wild-looking electric vehicle with radical styling cues and neither is it a rocket off the line, which seems to be the norm in the segment. Not everyone likes to take off the moment you press the A-pedal, after all. So, if the quick, push-you-back-in-the-seat cars are not your thing, here’s a refreshing electric vehicle that will make you smile and let you drive it calmly.

Mercedes-Benz EQC 4x4²

Mercedes-Benz EQC 4x4²

This is the first electric model, and the third overall to be inducted into the 4x4² series

Not too long ago, the Mercedes G-Class 4x4² was spotted undergoing high-altitude testing in the Alps, thus confirming the return of the alter-ego version of the luxurious off-roader.

While we were expecting to hear more about it, Mercedes decided to divert our attention from it by introducing a 4×4² concept version of its all-electric SUV, the EQC. To put it simply the EQC 4×4² is the off-road version of the standard EQC. Do we need something like this at a time when Mercedes is still trying to find its feet in the electric segment?

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC by Brabus

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC by Brabus

This is a classic example that tuning and customizing EVs at this point is easier said than done

Brabus seems to be adapting to the “rEVolution”. After working on a butt load of Mercedes-Benz’s cars, Brabus has now laid its hands on the company’s first all-electric crossover – the EQC. The tuner has customized EVs from its subsidiary, Smart Fortwo, but this is the first time it is working on an EV with the three-pointed star logo. The EQC has been given typical Brabus-treatment. There are changes made to the exterior as well as the powertrain. The interior in the stock crossover is plush as it is and Brabus hasn’t messed around with it other than adding a few things. But, the main question is – are aftermarket companies prepared to customize EVs already, or is it too soon?

2020 Mercedes Vision AVTR - A Look Into the Impossible Future

2020 Mercedes Vision AVTR - A Look Into the Impossible Future

Inspired by the Avatar movie, packed with futuristic technology

The Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR is a futuristic concept car that explores new design options and technologies, as well as the "vision of designers, engineers, and trend researches for mobility in the distant future." The AVTR name stands for Advanced Vehicle Transformation, but it also represents the company’s collaboration with the team that produced Avatar, a science fiction film directed and produced by James Cameron and released in 2009. While previous Vision concepts from Mercedes-Benz were also futuristic, they still featured technologies and styling cues linked to production cars, while some of the design actually made it on vehicles you can buy in dealerships. The Vision AVTR is an entirely different story as its features and technologies won’t be transferred to production cars in the near future.

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQS (updated)

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQS (updated)

The German firm is gearing up to deliver a competitor for the Tesla Model S

The Mercedes-Benz EQS is an upcoming all-electric car based on the Vision EQS concept that the German firm unveiled in 2019. Part of the EQ division that handles Mercedes’ electric vehicle operations, the EQS will join the existing EQC, EQV, and Smart EQ city cars. Based on the name alone, the EQS will act as the range-topping model in the company’s electric car range. But it probably won’t be an electric version of the S-Class. Instead, it could have a size similar to the CLS, so it will fit in the midsize market. Either way, it will be Mercedes-Benz answer to EVs like the Tesla Model S, the Porsche Taycan, and the upcoming Audi e-tron GT.

Update 12-4-2019: The Mercedes EQS was spotted doing some cold weather and snow testing – here’s the latest round of spy shots and what we’ve learned.
