Mercedes-Benz EQC Electric SUV India Launch Details Revealed


The much-awaited EQC Electric SUV will be the next product from Mercedes-Benz in the Indian market. The EV is expected to be launched in the country by the next couple of weeks.

The upcoming EQC will be Mercedes-Benzs first electric offering for India
After launching the new GLS flagship SUV, Mercedes-Benz India is now eyeing to launch its first electric car - the EQC -  in the country. The Stuttgart-based carmaker is expected to launch the EV in the next couple of weeks. Initially revealed in Sweden in 2018, the highly awaited Mercedes-Benz EQC was expected to be launched in India towards the end of the last year. But, the EV was not launched in India last year. Later, the company announced its plans to launch the same by April this year, which also got delayed due to coronavirus pandemic. Nevertheless, the carmaker is all set to launch its first luxury electric SUV in India soon.
Mercedes-Benz introduced the EQ brand in India in January
Speaking to Siddharth Vinayak Patankar, Editor-In-Chief, carandbike after the launch of the GLS, Santosh Iyer, Vice President - Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz India said, "We are committed to the EQC launch in India. It is now a matter of time we get the cars in our ports and then we can launch it. It is a matter of a couple of weeks, but maybe the end of July, August is somewhere where we see how fast we can get this. That's our next initiative, we want to get everything right when we launch an electric car. It's a full package and it's an ecosystem by itself. So, it's not just a car launch, but how we can take care of the entire EV ecosystem, what we can do at that point in time. The teams are working, I think it is a matter of a couple of more weeks and then we should be there with EQC also in India."
