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 41 hours 5 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 25h30m 9 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 12h45m 18 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 2x16A 7.4 kW † 12h45m 18 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 2x16A 7.4 kW † 12h45m 18 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 power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point 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) 49 kW † 47 kW † 75 min 120 mph

All about the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC

Pricing

The Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC has an On The Road Price (OTR) of £65,640. 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 a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the invoice of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC is £62,140.

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 561 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 an estimated total capacity of 85 kWh. The usable capacity is 80 kWh. A range of about 225 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 160 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 320 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 45 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 41 hours.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 112 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 100 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 40 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 155 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC is about 355 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 114 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 500 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 250 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

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.
