All-electric drive


The new EQC - uncompromisingly electric.

All-electric mobility means no emissions locally, almost imperceptible movement and superlative response. Overall, it's a completely new driving experience.

Charging system

Thanks to an intelligent charging system, the battery can be charged using all usual charging options. This includes domestic sockets, wallboxes, alternating current charging stations (AC) and rapid charging stations (DC).

The on-board charger is integrated into the vehicle and manages charging via the public power grid. It transforms alternating current (AC) into direct current (DC) voltage. Along side the option of charging at a "normal" mains connection (AC), it is also possible to charge the vehicle at DC charging stations (rapid charging stations).

High-voltage lithium-ion battery

The high-voltage lithium-ion battery is the central energy store for the electric drive. Both the range and the performance are directly dependent on the capabilities of the battery.

The battery is charged externally on the power grid. In addition, energy is recovered by way of recuperation duringbraking procedures and in overrun mode. The battery is installed in the underbody for a dynamically favourable, low overall vehicle centre of gravity

Electric motor

An electric motor each at the front axle and rear axle convert the electrical energy from the high-voltage battery into mechanical energy, and deliver impressive forward thrust from the first revolution.

To reduce electrical consumption and to improve dynamics, efficient distribution of the drive forces are steplessly regulated between the front and rear axles.

Recuperative brake system

For additional range: there is great potential to reduce consumption by increasing recuperation in overrun mode and braking phases.

This takes place via intelligent, efficiently optimised distribution of the deceleration torque. When you press down on the brake pedal, the electric motor initially takes on the task of decelerating the vehicle, acting as an alternator. You can also influence recuperation performance using the shift paddles on the steering wheel in several stages.

Charging socket

Apart from recuperation, the high-voltage lithium-ion battery can also be charged externally via a charging socket on the right-hand side of the rear bumper.

Thanks to an intelligent on-board charging system, you can charge up the battery at a wallbox, via a normal mains socket or at a public charging station.

High-voltage lithium-ion battery

A high-voltage lithium-ion battery installed in the rear part of the vehicle allows for all-electric driving, for example in the city.

The battery can be charged externally, for example at a wallbox, as well as while driving by recuperation and the combustion engine.

Hybrid drives including electric motors.

The electric motor and an additional decoupler between the combustion engine and electric motor are completely integrated into the hybrid head of the standard-specification 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission.

Internal combustion engine

Depending on the model, four- or six-cylinder petrol or diesel engines are combined with hybrid modules and batteries with different performance ratings.

If required, the output of the combustion engine is supported by the electric motor – for an extra boost when accelerating. The result is performance that combines driving pleasure and comfort with reduced consumption and low emissions.

Recuperative brake system

For additional range: there is great potential to reduce consumption by increasing recuperation in overrun mode and braking phases.

This takes place via intelligent, efficiently optimised distribution of the deceleration torque. When you press down on the brake pedal, the electric motor initially takes on the task of decelerating the vehicle, acting as an alternator.
