Range


How far can I go in the EQC?

With the EQC, you need have no worries whatsoever about the range. Thanks to the large high-voltage battery with a usable energy content of 80 kWh (NEDC), it achieves an electric range of up to 445 - 471 km according to NEDC*. This suffices for many everyday journeys and also covers the route to work and back for many people. And should you have to charge after all on occasion, then the EQC is fitted with many technologies so that you need not worry at all about planning. A useful feature here is the Active Range Monitoring and Navigation with Electric Intelligence.

How far can I really go in the EQC?

How far can I really go in the EQC?

A justified question to which there is one answer: it depends.
The consumption and the actual electric range depend on the individual user, their driving style, the driving speed, the route profile, the environmental conditions, the outside temperature, auxiliary consumption of air conditioning or seat heating. But the EQC does not leave you in the lurch here, either: with the aid of the Max Range drive program you can maximise the electric range. Via a pressure point in the haptic accelerator pedal it helps you to find the optimum and most efficient travelling speed, taking into account the respective traffic situation and the selected navigation destination.

* Electrical consumption and range have been determined on the basis of Regulation (EC) No. 692/2008. Electrical consumption and range depend on the vehicle configuration. - There may be deviations from the certified standard values under real driving conditions. The actual values are influenced by numerous individual factors, e.g. the driver's driving style, environmental conditions and the conditions along the route.

Intelligent energy management


We think one step further so you can drive further, relaxed.

In order to get even more range, the EQC has many intelligent systems which support a driving style that saves as much energy as possible and is as anticipatory as possible. They assist the driver who wants to maximise the range and actively help you to reach your destination of choice.

Charging options


Charging the EQC is as easy as charging your smartphone.

The charging infrastructure is optimised to your individual needs. Mercedes-Benz therefore offers a high degree of flexibility. Conveniently and quickly at home via the wallbox? En route at public charging stations? Or a charging stop on the motorway at a rapid charging station? All of this is possible for maximum charging convenience.

    Charging at home.

    The image visualises the charging process for a Mercedes-Benz EQC using a Mercedes-Benz Wallbox Home.

    Via our wallboxes, the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox Home, you can charge your new EQC quickly, conveniently and safely at home. With a charging capacity of 7.4 kW you can charge the EQC up to three times quicker than at a conventional household socket. It would be installed at your preferred location at home. Installing a wallbox makes high charging capacities and correspondingly shorter charging times an everyday occurrence.

    Charging en route.

    The image shows a side view of the Mercedes-Benz EQC.

    You can charge the EQC at countless public AC or DC charging stations. You can charge your vehicle at public charging stations (alternating current) using the standard charging cable with a charging capacity of 7.4 kW while you are in town. And on longer routes you can quickly charge the EQC at the DC rapid charging stations (direct current) which are to be found at many motorway service stations.

    * To use the services, you must register on the Mercedes me Portal and also accept the Terms of Use for the Mercedes me connect services. In addition, the respective vehicle must be paired with the user account. In order to use the Mercedes me Charge service incl. Ionity, it is also necessary to register on the Mercedes me Charge User Portal and enter the payment information.Standardised charging and billing solutions in compliance with the relevant weights and measures regulations are not currently available nationwide in Germany. In isolated cases, this may lead to discrepancies between the amount of electricity charged and the amount billed by the mobility service provider, for example.

    EQ&A


    Your most important questions on electric driving.

      • Real electric range

        Why is the real electric range often less than specified?

        The electric range varies depending on individual driving behaviour, the route profile and the environmental factors. You can travel on electric power further if you use ECO Assist to drive with foresight and take advantage of the recuperation and/or gliding function. Auxiliary equipment such as seat heating or the climate control system also has an impact on the range.

      • AC and DC charging technology

        What is the difference between AC and DC charging technology?

        Basically, the batteries of electrified vehicles can only be charged with direct current (DC). However, all household power sockets, the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox, the innogy eBox professional and most public charging stations supply alternating current (AC), as do "high-voltage sockets". To make charging possible, vehicles are equipped with an on-board charger – an AC/DC rectifier. It converts the alternating current into the required direct current. Charging capacities of 2.3 kW to 7.4 kW are possible – depending on the AC source.

      • Environmental friendliness

        How environmentally friendly are electric cars really?

        How environmentally friendly the vehicle is used depends greatly on your driving and charging behaviour. Among other things, the electricity you charge the vehicle with also plays a significant role, i.e.: is it actually being charged with "green" electricity or an energy mix? Many public charging stations are supplied with green electricity, and a green electricity contract for domestic users is often only a few clicks away.
