Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||40 hours||6 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||25 hours||9 mph|

|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW †||12h30m||19 mph|
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)
Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC.
- Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
- Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
- Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
- Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
|Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Avg. Power||Time||Rate|
|CCS (50 kW DC)||50 kW||45 kW||1h15m||130 mph|
|CCS (100 kW DC)||100 kW||80 kW †||45 min||210 mph|
|CCS (150 kW DC)||110 kW †||85 kW †||40 min||240 mph|
† = Limited by fastcharge capabilities of vehicle
NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.
All about the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC
The Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £59,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £4,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC is £55,000.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC is 300 kW (402 hp). The maximum torque is 564 lb-ft. The Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 5.1 seconds. The top speed is 112 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC has a total capacity of 80 kWh. The usable capacity is 78 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 230 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 165 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 335 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 7.4 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 12 hours 30 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 40 hours.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 110 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 85 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 40 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 160 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC is about 335 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 119 mpg in a traditional petrol car.
The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 470 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 230 Wh per mile.
The Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
