Mercedes opens the German assault on Tesla

Mercedes finally unveils EQC

The dual motor electric motors generate 402 horsepower and 564 pound-feet of torque.

While Mercedes-Benz has launched its electric SUV now, there are already some early birds like Tesla Model X and Jaguar I-Pace. It's bad. It's really bad. The EQC looks like a production version of the 2016 concept; meaning it has a real grille versus the shiny LED display grille found on the concept.

The Mercedez EQC consumes 22.2 kWh for a 100 km ride with 0 combined Carbon dioxide emissions as per provisional figures figures released by the German Technical Service Corporation.

Fast charging: Direct current stations can add 70 per cent battery capacity in 40 minutes. Other attributes, such as a more aerodynamic shape, also round out the changes when it comes to translating the concept to production.

India, US to hold large military exercises in 2019
After the conclusion of the talks, the two sides signed crucial defence pacts and agreed to work together to combat terrorism. Sources said the four leaders set a broad direction, describing the talks as "positive and constructive".

The interior is quite driver-focused and a lot funkier than the normal Mercedes-Benz style.

Mercedes promised an official US range a little later, closer to the market debut of the EQC 400, which is not unusual given the market-specific certification, but it will likely be a bit south of the 279-mile NEDC figure. Mercedes plans to assemble the EQC at its factory in Bremen, where the automaker also makes its best-selling C-Class sedan. While the allelectric auto hints at the striking future design cues from Infiniti, the Prototype 10 concept's most important feature is its electric powertrain. At the same time, the EQC "is a pioneer for an avant-garde electric look while representing the design idiom of Progressive Luxury".

Available this fall, the 2019 Jaguar i-Pace small AWD crossover has a 90 kWh battery making 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque, good for a 240-mile range and 0-60 miles per hour time of 4.5 seconds. It has amassed more than 2,000 refundable deposits of 20,000 crowns ($2,400) in Europe's biggest electric-car market, where Tesla sold 8,500 vehicles past year.

Still, here's what we were able gather: The first-ever model will have a release date of September 4, which is today, in Stockholm. It is faster still with DC charging - which is standard for the EQC - for example via CCS (Combined Charging Systems) in Europe and the USA.

Power couple: Tesla Model X, left, and Model S.

Permission to land: The Jaguar I-Pace will be Tesla's first big rival.
