October 2nd, 2016 by

Generation EQRecently, Mercedes-Benz introduced the “Generation EQ” SUV, its concept for the automaker’s first ever battery-electric vehicle. The Generation EQ is a luxury crossover SUV featuring two electric motors and an estimated range of up to 500 kilometers. Although this revolutionary vehicle is currently only for show, RBM of Alpharetta is pleased to announce that Mercedes-Benz does plan on selling it in the near future. Read on to find out what you can expect from this futuristic model!

Impressive Exterior and Interior

From the moment you lay eyes on the Generation EQ SUV, you’ll notice blue lighting on its nose which can also be found inside of the crossover. According to critics, the exterior of the Generation EQ resembles a sleeker version of the gas-generated Mercedes-Benz GLC crossover.

Once you step foot inside the elegant Generation EQ, you can expect four, thin seats, a dashboard without knobs, and touch-based controls. The interior of the Generation EQ gives off the same luxurious vibe seen on a traditional Mercedes-Benz crossover with several added futuristic components.

This all-wheel crossover will have the capability to accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in under five seconds. Its standard Combined Charging System (CCS), in addition to wireless charging through an induction system, makes fast charging a reality. The automaker has noted that, once the vehicle has been produced, the Generation EQ SUV will also be able to support DC Fast chargers of up to 300 kilowatts in order to add 100 kilometers of range within five minutes.

Price

Although the price of the Generation EQ has yet to be released, it will likely be comparable to the gas-powered Mercedes-Benz GLC, somewhere in the range of $40,000 to $45,000. It may be a bit more expensive because of the battery pack, but this would still make it nearly three times more affordable than a Tesla.
