In the past, we have written about some of the electric concept cars presented by Mercedes-Benz, or even talked about the horsepower and torque boost that drivers can enjoy with features like the EQ Boost available on the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS. However, now we have even better news for luxury shoppers who are craving the fuel-efficiency savings of an all-electric model with the cutting-edge quality that Mercedes-Benz always brings to the road. Mercedes-Benz has recently unveiled its first all-electric production car: the EQC SUV. But what can we expect from the electric powertrain of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC? And when can we expect this marvel of electrification?
