Mercedes will launch a fully-electric SUV to rival the Jaguar I-Pace in 2019.
Based loosely on a GLC platform, the five-seat EQC is the first in a whole range of new electric models to come from Mercedes in the next five years.
The new EQC has a WLTP range of 249 miles - thanks to an 80Kwh battery - and develops 408PS.
Prices are expected to start at around £67,000, which is in line with the car’s key rivals.
The battery can be charged from 10-80% in as little as 40 minutes, using a DC charger.
