Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4MATIC

The luxury EV market in the US might be getting a new addition via the Mercedes-Benz EQC, with an emphasis on might.

According to Automotive News, US dealers were told by Mercedes-Benz that a second-generation EQC, and an electric C-Class, will show up sometime in 2025.

The timeline has been fraught with delays, however, so having a four year runway to launch could help them meet this potential date.

In late 2019, the EQC was pushed until 2021. In early 2021, it turned out it wasn’t going to be available in the US at all, with a Mercedes-Benz rep saying “following a comprehensive review of market developments, the EQC will not be offered in the United States for now.”

Where we are now in late 2021 sees reports of a new platform called the ‘Mercedes Modular Architecture’. Hopefully Mercedes-Benz won’t miss its off-ramp again with the EQC. Until then, EV enthusiasts who want something with a smaller footprint will have to wait until 2022 when the EQB is scheduled to have US availability.
