Mercedes-Benz India has commenced bookings for the second batch of its all-electric EQC crossover which will now be available in 50 cities across India as against 6 cities in the first round. The EQC was launched in the country in October last year. While the 1.07 crore rupee extreme price remains unchanged, the EQC will get an upgraded onboard charger replacing the 7.5-kilowatt charger with an 11-kilowatt unit.
As a result, the 80-kilowatt-hour battery pack’s charging time from 10-100% will reduce to 7 hours and 30 minutes from the earlier 11 hours. The crossover is powered by two asynchronous motors developing a combined output of 408 horsepower and 700 Nm of peak torque. It has a driving range of up to 4.4 kilometres on the WLTP cycle.
