What Car? says...
The Mercedes EQC wasn't the first fully electric car to wear the three-pointed star (that was the A-Class E-Cell). However, it was the German brand’s first dedicated electric vehicle (EV) with no petrol or diesel versions on offer.
It was the first of what will eventually be many pure electric models that Mercedes is planning to launch over the next few years, under its EQ sub-brand. Put simply, if you have any lingering doubts about whether electric cars really are the future (or at least a big part of it), the fact that the big premium players are now in on the action should give you all the confidence you need to at least consider making the switch.
