AutoComplete: Mercedes debuts its all-electric EQC SUV
Here's what's making news on Roadshow.
Mercedes-Benz just unveiled its first mass-produced electric vehicle.
It's called the EQC, it's Crossover-shaped, and it's coming to the U.S. in 2020.
Mercedes says that its electric drive train is good for 420 horsepower, 564 pound seat of torque which is cool.
But when it comes to estimated range, the EQC is kind of a letdown at just 200 miles Maybe the 3 star folks can beat that number up before it hits show rooms.
It seems like everyone is making a SUV these days.
Whether it's Bentley and Rolls Royce, even Lambourghini.
But one company won't be joining that crowd and it's Mclaren.
Mclaren's CEO, Mike Flewitt told top tier that his customers don't give a crap about SUVs.
So the company will continue to turn out space time warpingly fast super cars just like papa Bruce would have wanted.
We support this.
Audi is apparently a company packed to the brim with sadists, because it's been teasing the e-tron SUV for what seems like a geological age at this point.
And now we know that it's actually gone into production.
But it still hasn't shown us, or anyone else for that matter, the electric SUV's final form.
Given today's news from the folks in Stuttgart, we expect that we'll see the e-tron pretty soon, and we can't wait to have a go on it.
