Mercedes Benz Plans Electric Car Debut In India


Mercedes-Benz India has verified that it will release its EQ electric band in India on 14 January 2020. The EQ oversees the electric vehicle portfolio of Mercedes-Benz and has models such as EQC electric SUV in its series. Could this mean that we will view the release of EQC in India’s current year? Well, it is too early to say. But considering January itself will view the release of 2 electric SUVs in the Tata Nexon EV and the MG ZS EV and with the release of the Audi e-Tron verified too, it would not be a stretch to expect Mercedes to release the EQC current year, which was the primary production automatic model from Mercedes-Benz.

In December 2019, Mercedes-Benz India releases the GLC and also introduced the MBUX system in India. A teaser video on the brand’s official social media advises that through the year 2020, the German automaker plans to introduce lots of models including some top performance AMGs in India. Our sources verify that the producer will be primarily introducing the EQ brand in January 2020 to the Indian market and it will be followed by electrified model releases.

Powering the Mercedes-Benz EQC is a twin motor setup, which contains 1 motor for the front axle and 1 for the rear. This makes the EQC an all-wheel-drive SUV or as Mercedes loves to call it, a 4Matic. The EQs motors are run by an 80 KWh lithium-ion battery that helps the motor generate a gathered 300 kW of peak power and 765 Nm of top torque. The latest EGC gets an all-electric range of approximately four-hundred km with a fast charge choice on the SUV too.

By 2022, Mercedes-Benz is aiming for full electrification of its full model line-up, mainly in developed marketers with a total of 130 variants. These variants will contain 48-volt on-board electric system with EQ Boost to plug-in hybrids to all-electric cars with fuel or battery cells. Mercedes-Benz trusts that the unit sales of BEVs or battery-electric cars are set to rise to 15-25 percent of full unit sales by 2025, depending on individual customer preference and the growth of the public infrastructure.

Mercedes-Benz internationally plans to introduce ten models under the EQ brand by 2022. The producer has globally debuted all automatic ideas like the EQA which is an all-electric edition of the GLA-class, the EQV, an electric model of the V-class Van.
