2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC reviews are in - the Tesla Model X should be worried

By info@topspeed.com (Andrei Nedelea)
Mercedes jumped on the electric car bandwagon quite late compared to its German rivals, Audi and BMW, and even other manufacturers with which its not in direct competition. Its first fully electric vehicle is the EQC SUV, a tall car that is about the same size as the current GLC, but unlike that car, it runs on battery power alone so it does away with tailpipe emissions altogether.
