The vehicle appears unmistakably a Mercedes because of its nose layout, and although hidden by a camouflaged wrap, the front grille suggests that a three-pointed star logo is beneath it. What is unusual about the vehicle though is that it is too quiet. A close look at its rear reveals that it is missing one key crucial element. Yes, the exhaust pipe is nowhere to be seen! Those details could only mean that the unit is an electric vehicle…. Continue Reading »

Pitting the Mercedes-Benz EQC Against the Tesla Model X

It’s hard not to compare these two when the Mercedes-Benz EQC, which stands for electric intelligence, was made specifically to compete with Elon Musk’s Tesla Model X. So let’s pit the new Mercedes electric SUV against its American rival in terms of exterior, interior, and performance. Exterior The Model X has a futuristic and yet simple design. It has a pretty basic body structure that is attractive enough but doesn’t really shine out. The small headlights and the single slat grille are standouts, as well as the Tesla logo and air dams on either side of the bumper. The EQC, on the other hand, has an elegant structure that we… Continue Reading »
