Electric Mercedes C-class wants to tackle Tesla Model 3, but has to wait a while - AutoReview.nl

It was inevitable. After the Mercedes EQE, there will also be an electric variant of the Mercedes C-class. But a Mercedes EQC already exists, even though it is no longer for sale new. So we call it Mercedes' alternative to the BMW i4 and the Tesla Model 3 EQC sedan for the time being.

If you know that the 'drop silhouette' is the ideal streamline shape and are familiar with the Mercedes EQE, the design of the electric C-class cannot come as a surprise. The car has a low, sloping roofline and a relatively short nose. When looking at the spy photos of the heavily camouflaged car, we get the impression that the wrapping specialists at Mercedes stuck a piece to the front bumper to mislead us and you.

Alternative to diesel drivers

Nothing has been officially announced about the technology of the electric Mercedes C-class. But count on him - just like the Mercedes EQE - has a particularly low Cd value. We therefore think that the black door handles are artfully sculpted licorice laces, because we expect the production model to have fully recessed ones.

A spacious battery pack will also be missing, probably supplemented with further optimized electric motors at the front and an optimal range. Because this is the only way Mercedes can protect the spoiled, diesel-using mileage eaters among its clientele from range anxiety. In addition, Mercedes is investing billions in fast chargers worldwide. Gosh, who could they have copied that from?

To underline its commitment to the climate, you will soon stumble over the PET bottles and ecologically responsibly grown and felled trees in the interior. The question is whether Mercedes customers will settle for synthetic leather from the leatherette cow, or whether they also just want cowhide.

Price Mercedes EQC sedan

Mercedes promises that the electric C-class will be competitively priced. That has to be the case if he wants to be able to compete against the recently greatly improved team Tesla Model 3of BMW i4 and the Hyundai Ioniq 6. And then BMW will soon introduce the completely new Neue Klasse, an electric car that will be the harbinger of a whole new generation of electric BMWs. Another challenger is the Volkswagen ID.7which is not inferior to the Mercedes EQE in terms of space.

When will the electric C-class come on the market?

We assume that the Mercedes EQC sedan will be on the market in 2025, but enthusiasts of the traditional Mercedes C-class with a combustion engine do not need to panic immediately. The current generation has only been on the market for two years and will probably last for a while - yes, even with a diesel engine.
