He said that he did not consider any of Tesla's three current models as a direct competitor to the EQC, which was Mercedes' first launch as SUVs have found favour with customers in recent years, with their growth outpacing other auto types.

"(However), as we get into volume and further develop the technology - especially on the battery side - we go from thousands, tens of thousands, to hundreds of thousands of vehicles per year, we see a very good chance for that cost curve to become much more attractive. (A company representative said figures for models destined for the USA will remain unconfirmed until closer to market launch.) Forty minutes on a 110 kW outlet will get the vehicle to 80 percent of a full charge.

The maximum range for a Tesla Model X is 295 miles.

Forthcoming models such as the Mercedes-Benz EQC will underpin most automakers' electric vehicle product lines.

Mercedes and other luxury brands are pushing aggressively into electric cars to challenge Tesla after its success in wooing wealthy buyers with the Model S. Daimler expects demand for battery-powered vehicles to eat into sales of more profitable conventional cars rather than lure new customers, Zetsche said on Tuesday. He added, "Electric drive is a major component in the mobility of the future". Price has not been announced but it is expected to be close to Tesla Model X 75D and Jaguar I-Pace's price.


The Elon Musk-lead electric vehicle maker has always been dominating the EV market for so long already that it is now time for other players to come into the scene.

A teaser video shared over at Express UK revealed the Mercedes-Benz EQC electric SUV.

Under the hood, the EQC will reportedly feature a couple of electric motors powering each of the axles. Audi says its e-Tron can fully recharge (95 kWh) in only 30 minutes on a special 150-kilowatt charging system around which it was designed, meaning it can recover range 69 percent faster than the Mercedes can.

The firm is investing more than €10bn (£9bn) in the expansion of its electric range, and more than €1bn in battery production. We have details and gallery of the new SUV, the first of offering in the automaker's EQ brand.

Audi has yet to reveal its e-tron electric SUV in full but it has started production of the mid-size zero-emission vehicle at its factory in Belgium.
