Default Mercedes EQC @ Auto Expo 2020

Big shoutout to Rehaan for shooting these pictures & his coverage of the Auto Expo. Thanks for sharing, man!

Mercedes-Benz displayed the EQC 'Edition 1886' at the Auto Expo 2020. The Edition 1886 highlights the company's transition to a new era - the electric vehicle - and pays homage to the first production automobile in the world. The German carmaker is reported to introduce its EQ sub-brand in India in April 2020, with this car:

The all-electric EQC is based on a modified version of the GLC's platform. It measures 4,761 mm in length, 1,884 mm in width, 1,624 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,873 mm. Edition 1886 is offered in a silver shade with colour coordinated interior and exteriors elements:

At the front, it gets gloss black grille and lower louvres:

Take a look at the light bar and the running light in the headlight cluster:

EQC is powered by dual electric motors - one on each axle. They deliver a combined output of 402 BHP and 760 Nm and come paired with an 80 kWh lithium-ion battery. The EQC is claimed to offer a range of 445-471 km on the NEDC cycle:

On the inside, the EQC gets a 3-spoke multi function steering wheel and a freestanding digital display for the driver and the MBUX infotainment system:

Excuse my language, but what a hideous looking car! It looks like a cross between a Q3, a Hector and a Cadillac. Mercedes, we know you are capable of doing way better than this.

Apart from all the tech & engineering which makes this car so amazing, the quirky and nifty touches makes it so drool worthy, like
The gloss black grill
Front & Rear Light Bars
Blue accents all over the car, specially in the headlamp cluster.
Copper accents on the AC Vents
And my favourite - ARTICO man-made leather and DINAMICA microfiber in indigo blue black with 1886 lettering.
