Mercedes Benz has re-opened bookings for the next batch of the EQC electric SUV. The next set of EQCs will arrive in October 2021. It was earlier launched in 2020, but was sold in limited numbers through the CBU route. 

Mercedes has also commenced its EV expansion plans, by retailing the EQC from over 50 cities and 94 dealerships. These include cities such as Nashik, Ahmedabad, Baroda, Surat, Hyderabad, Mysore, Kolkata, Goa, and Chandigarh. Earlier, it was just sold in six metro cities. The new dealerships have been trained to offer all the services and equipment for the EQC.

The EQC runs on an 80kWh battery pack that offers a range of over 450 kilometres. It gets dual-electric motors that offer a combined 408PS and 760Nm. The 0-100kmph sprint can be achieved in under 5.1 seconds.
