Mercedes-Benz simply introduced that the brand new EQC will likely be outfitted with a 11 kW on-board charger (three-phase we assume) as normal (with fast impact), which shortens the recharge (10-100% SOC) from 11 hours to 7 hours and half-hour.

It is the primary noticeable improve to the EV specs of the EQC, which entered manufacturing in Might 2019. The transfer can also be no shock, as particularly in Europe, the 7.4 kW single-phase chargers are far much less helpful than the three-phase 11 kW (which hundreds three phases evenly – 3.7 kW every).

It is a lesson that every one producers have to take, and already many mainstream fashions are outfitted no less than optionally with 11 kW chargers.

Through the third quarter of 2020, Mercedes-Benz offered globally some 45,000 all-electric and plug-in hybrid automobiles (monthly results are no longer below 10,000). That represents about 7% of the overall.

We do not know the precise quantity of the EQC in Q3, however in September particularly, it was roughly 2,500.

The German producer notes a relentless improve of demand and orders and “step-by-step” will increase the manufacturing on the Bremen plant in Germany in addition to in Beijing, China by the Beijing Benz Automotive Co. Ltd three way partnership (BBAC).
