Mercedes-EQ is expanding the model range of its successful electric SUV: the EQC 400 4MATIC  is now available as a base model which is identically configured throughout Europe and therefore especially attractively priced from €66,068.80[2]. The new EQC 400 4MATIC AMG Line already reveals the dynamism of its electric power unit at first glance. It rounds the model range off at the top end. As standard, this extensively equipped sports version features e.g. AMG Line Exterior and Interior, and is therefore recognisable by the AMG-specific Black Panel front grille in a twin-blade design. Highlights in the interior include the sports seats with an AMG-specific pattern layout and upholstery in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfibre with medium grey topstitching. Prices for the EQC 400 4MATIC AMG Line start at €73,208.802. Both models can be ordered now, and will be in dealer showrooms in May. Like all EQC variants, the new models have an 11 kW charger as standard.

Mercedes-Benz and the federal government are supporting the changeover to electric mobility in Germany: thanks to the list price of under €65,000 excl. VAT for the EQC, an environmental bonus of €5000 from the federal government and a €2500 subsidy from Mercedes-Benz are possible. In this case the EQC 400 4MATIC costs €63,093.80 incl. VAT in Germany. If the government’s share of the environmental bonus is deducted, the effective price is €58,093.80.

For maximum flexibility, both model variants are also available by EQC subscription in various markets. In this case the regular rental contract is for 24 months, and it can be ended beforehand with a 3-month notice period.

AMG Line Exterior for the EQC 400 4MATIC AMG Line includes the AMG-specific Black Panel front grille in a twin-blade design with a surround in high-gloss black, an AMG-specific front apron in a jet-wing design with air inlets featuring trim elements in chrome and inserts in high-gloss black plus visible and functional AIR CURTAINS, 48.3 cm (19-inch) aerodynamically optimised AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in tantalum grey with a high-sheen finish, a wider, AMG-specific rear apron with visible, non-functional air outlets and a diffuser insert in black with chrome trim, and exterior mirrors in the vehicle colour.
