Mercedes EQC gets sampled by Jay Leno
Mercedes’ electric car earns an appearance on Jay Leno’s garage
The first mass-produced electric car from Daimler will help the carmaker fight off the challenges posed by the likes of Tesla Model X and Jaguar i-Pace.
Until it actually makes market debut, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz EQC gets the Jay Leno treatment.
Naturally, Mr. Leno drives an EQC 400 4Matic in prototype guise and for more background on the EV, he takes Bastian Schult (Powertrain Testing Engineer at Mercedes-Benz) for a ride.
Now, you might already know that the EQC relies on an 80-kWh battery pack that allows for a max range of 280 miles (450 km) on a single charge, with power coming from two electric motors that make together 408 PS (300 kW) and 765 Nm (564 lb-ft) of torque.
But more on the EQC’s intricacies and complex technology is available in the video below. Check it out.
