Less camouflaged production version of Mercedes-Benz EQC spotted during on-road testing
A few weeks ahead of the scheduled unveiling of German automaker Mercedes-Benz’s upcoming EQC all-electric SUV, an unexpectedly less camouflaged production version of the vehicle has recently been spotted during its on-road testing.
The forthcoming EQC all-electric SUV is the first all-electric vehicle which Mercedes-Benz has built to be electric from the ground up. The unveiling and launch of the vehicle will take place in a few weeks, at an event to be held in Sweden.
With the Mercedes-Benz EQC to be one of the several much-awaited electric luxury SUVs scheduled to hit the markets in 2019, the recently-spied less camouflaged production version of the EQC all-electric SUV has unfolded a better look at the design of the vehicle.
The EQC all-electric SUV is based on a concept vehicle which was unveiled by Mercedes-Benz two years back. The camouflaged production version of the vehicle has also been spotted in the past, but the recently-seen less camouflaged production version has revealed that the shape of the vehicle will be much more conventional than that of the concept version.
Going by the indications from the less camouflaged production version, the EQC all-electric SUV will have a grille on the front fascia. The grille will be fairly big, and will extend all the way to the vehicle’s headlights. The wheels of the vehicle will probably be quite similar to those unveiled in the concept version.
