The future is electric, and we're about to be living in it.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.
Daimler put out a tweet over the weekend that included a quick preview of the EQC. It only shows the front end -- and just a corner of the front end, at that -- but it's the best look at the EQC that we've seen thus far.
The video ends with yet another confirmation that the EQC's global reveal will take place on Sept. 4. Originally, the EQC's biggest competitor -- the Audi E-Tron electric SUV -- was supposed to be unveiled first, but some last-minute changes pushed its reveal after the Merc's. Both won't be on sale for some time, though.
We don't know much about the EQC beyond the fact that it should be sized about the same as the current GLC-Class SUV. The EQ name will continue on with other models, since that's Mercedes' new designation for its battery-electric vehicles. While the Generation EQ concept that preceded this car made 516 pound-feet of torque and featured a 0-to-60 time under 5 seconds, something tells us that it'll be softened down a bit for production. We'll find out in just about a week!
