Prepare yourself for the 2021 Mercedes-Benz EQC! This all-electric luxury SUV is bound to create waves here in Scottsdale, AZ. Who says luxury can’t be electric? The EQC certainly takes things to a new level. But is it the right model for you? That’s what we are here to find out. Let’s see what highlights this model presents, and what you may want to consider before leasing or buying it.
Inside the EQC you’ll have the Mercedes-Benz User Experience that equips the SUV with artificial intelligence, natural-language voice control, and a touchscreen display system. Of course, it wouldn’t be a modern vehicle without smartphone connectivity, so enjoy Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®.

The EQC is also equipped with the LED Intelligent Light System headlights to illuminate your drive. However, it’s not just proper lighting that helps you keep your vehicle safer as you drive. Check out the driver-assist features like Active Distance Assist, Brake Assist, and Speed Limit Assist.
One of the major downfalls of electric vehicles is the sheer amount of time it takes to charge them. Sure, they’re great for city driving, but travelling long distances just a bit more difficult. However, when properly equipped, the Mercedes-Benz EQC can actually charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in only 40 minutes. That will still eat into your day, but it isn’t nearly as bad as some of the other electric charge times.
Speaking of, the Mercedes-Benz EQC pumps out 402 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque, and can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in only 4.8 seconds. This perk is only amplified by the all-wheel drive capability. It also has the DYNAMIC SELECT® system that gives you EV-specific drive modes.
We encourage you to contact your friendly Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale to learn more about the Mercedes-Benz lineup.
