Mercedes-Benz launched their first all-electric SUV, the EQC 400 in the Indian market in September 2020. The Mercedes-Benz EQC electric SUV was offered in two variants and came with a starting price of Rs 99.90 lakh, ex-showroom (India).
The EQC SUV is imported to the Indian market via the CBU (Completely Built Unit) route. Mercedes-Benz imported just 50 units as part of its first batch of EQC models, all of which had been sold out by the end of 2020 after receiving a good response.
Now, the German carmaker is set to bring in its second batch of imports to India in the coming months. Ahead of its imports, Mercedes-Benz has reopened bookings for this second batch of EQC SUV coming to India. However, there is no official update as to how many models will be imported as part of the second batch.
Talking about the Mercedes-Benz EQC itself, the electric SUV is based on the same platform as the brand's GLC offering. The electric SUV comes packed with a host of features and equipment, both inside and out.
Some of these include LED headlamps with LED DRLs, LED taillights connected together by a LED strip running across the width of the tail-gate, 20-inch alloy wheels, sloping roofline, dual-screen setup inside, sport seats, multi-zone climate control, ambient lighting, brake assist, hill-hold control, ABS with EBD, cruise control and many others.
The Mercedes-Benz EQC will be powered by two electric motors, one at the front and the other at the rear, making the electric SUV a permanent all-wheel-drive system. The electric motors combine to produce 405bhp and 765Nm of peak torque.
The electric powertrain also consists of an 80kW lithium-ion battery pack which is said to offer a claimed range of 471km on a single charge. The powertrain also claims to offer excellent performance figures as well, with a 0 - 100km/h acceleration time of 5.1 seconds. The Mercedes-Benz EQC also claims to have an electronically-limited top speed of 180km/h.

Mercedes-Benz has begun accepting bookings for its EQC electric SUV once again in the Indian market. The Mercedes-Benz EQC rivals the likes of the upcoming Jaguar I-Pace and the Audi e-Tron offerings.
