The long-anticipated Mercedes-Benz EQC finally gets a launch date and the new all-electric luxury SUV will go on sale in India on October 8, 2020. Mercedes-Benz India had previously scheduled the EQC launch around April this year, but the coronavirus pandemic and the resultant lockdown forced the carmaker to postpone the launch by about six months. The new Mercedes-Benz EQC will be sold under the company's electric vehicle brand EQ, which was launched in India, in January 2020. The EQC is India’s first luxury electric SUV and will come to India as a Completely Built Unit. The electric motor produces about 402 bhp while the promised range stands at 450 km on a single charge. The EQC is expected to be priced around Rs. 1.25 crore (ex-showroom, India).
