Mercedes has a very ambitious electrification plan as we all know. The German brand also stands developing new platforms which will make it possible to launch several new battery-powered models over the next few years. Among these is expected to be an electric sedan equivalent to the current C-Class and which could arrive from 2024 onwards. A model that could called EQC like the current electric SUV. Lately, we have seen that for its new generation electric, the manufacturer tends to want to offer them both in the sedan version and in the SUV version.
However, it is speculated that the German manufacturer does not want to follow up on the current battery-powered SUV. Partly because he did not get the desired result and partly because his place will essentially be taken from the SUV version of the EQE. The next EQC, therefore, could only have the features of a sedan.
Certainly, for its development, Mercedes will be inspired by the contents of the Concept Vision EQXX. Therefore, he will also work a lot on aerodynamics to improve efficiency as much as possible. Starting from these assumptions, we tried to imagine what the new electric sedan could be like. The result is the render that you can see.
The Mercedes EQC electric sedan will rest on the new MMA platform expressly made for electric cars only. This will allow designers more freedom in making the design. Furthermore, the platform will allow the integration of different types of powertrains with one or two electric motors, as well as, of course, accumulators of different capacities.
The new sedan will also feature advanced driving assistance features as well as a brand new evolution of the MBUX infotainment system. No new SUV version as mentioned at the beginning also because it seems there would not be much space to insert a new SUV model between the EQB and the EQE SUV.
All that remains is to wait for further news on the development of future electric vehicles that Mercedes will launch on the market in the coming years and which will make the brand electric only by 2030, at least in the markets where it will be possible.
