German luxury auto major Mercedes-Benz has teased its much awaited upcoming EQC by releasing official images of the vehicle. The Mercedes-Benz EQC is the brand’s first all-electric SUV model. At the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz had showcased the pre-production versions of the GLC F-CELL, the first electric vehicle to combine the fuel cell and plug-in battery technologies. This vehicle will be launched in the market next year and will be called the Mercedes-Benz EQC. It will be the first full battery-electric model from the company under its recently established electric sub-brand - EQ.
The Mercedes-Benz EQC has been going on extensive road tests for quite some time now. A series of its test prototypes have successfully finished extreme weather or winter testing in northern Sweden, and Mercedes has also presented the official pictures of the EQC undergoing the rigorous testing. As a norm, all the new models from the house of Mercedes-Benz go through extensive testing, and that is even truer for the all-new vehicle models that come into being. For a Merc model to hit the production line from a concept version, the model is required to go through a series of very tough and thorough testing phase. The EQC for instance not only went through the harsh cold weather testing in northern Sweden, but it also has to pass a series of summer tests in southern Europe as well as in the USA, while the model is also going through rigorous endurance road tests across the globe, in order to ensure top-notch performance, safety and drive experience in any weather or road conditions anywhere in the world.
