The new Mercedes EQ C isn’t just a new electric SUV, but the beginning of a whole new EQ range of battery-powered Benzes. There’ll be hatchbacks and saloons soon, all carrying a three-pointed star and a plug socket. But they won’t have the market to themselves.
Besides Tesla, and its three-model range of four-door EVs, Audi’s e-tron, Jaguar’s I-Pace and Porsche’s Taycan projects all herald the beginning of a new electric age of premium cars. Yep, a ‘beginning’. We didn’t say ‘spark’. Or ‘shock’. This is going to be a tired-pun-free zone.
So, now there’s several contenders with definitive specs published, let’s take stock of the runners taking part in the new world order of posh EV face-offs. Got a favourite?
