  • Mercedes-Benz EQC prototype testing in Black Forest

In addition to the Tesla Model X SUV, the market is about to be inundated with all-electric vehicles from every major luxury brand. However, Mercedes-Benz seemed to have second thoughts about the driving range communicated for the US - perhaps after criticism that 200 miles didn't quite cut it.

As standard the EQC comes with a water-cooled onboard charger (ODC) with a capacity of 7.4kW, which is ideal for AC charging at home or at a public charging station.

Mercedes is promising a range of 279 miles in the European cycle, though the US range won't be announced for a while.

The EQC softens its higher-riding proportions with sporty curves and a distinctive full-width rear light, while the interior resembles that of the Mercedes C-Class - a reminder of economies of scale that electric-only Tesla can not match.

Mercedes and other luxury brands are pushing aggressively into electric cars to challenge Tesla after its success in wooing wealthy buyers with the Model S. Including the Smart brand, which will abandon combustion engines in coming years, Daimler plans to offer 10 fully electric cars by 2022.

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled an all-electric SUV that it plans to start producing next year in Germany, the latest to challenge Tesla in the luxury electric auto market.

The new Tesla Roadster - Tesla's "proposed" hyper-performance electric supercar - has been revealed in Europe, just as Mercedes reveals it EQC.

The Mercedes EQC supports up to 110kW fast charging that can juice up the batteries from 10 to 80 per cent in around 40 minutes.

"The EQC is equipped with the latest generation of a lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery serving as the energy source for both electric motors".

Tesla Model X is the only three-row all-electric SUV in three different battery configurations.

The EQC will be driven by two electric motors - one powering the front wheels, the other the rear - with a combined power output of 408hp.

The vehicle, which will be available in the United States in 2020, will mark the debut of the German carmaker's electric "EQ" marque.

The EQC is set for global release around the middle of 2019, and although local timing has yet to be finalised, Mercedes Benz South Africa is aiming to introduce it in the fourth quarter of that year. The EQC will be will be similar in size to the company's GLC crossover.

By then the Model S flagship will be eight years old.
