Mercedes EQC 400 is 2020 Car of the Year

Post by coulomb »

A PHEV. [ Edit: Sigh. The first sentence starts "We are thrilled to announce our first all-electric vehicle..." It's a full electric. ]

Yes, I parked next to one at an EV charging station. But it seems that the EQC series is all-electric.

Mercedes hybrids available (?) in Australia seem to include the A250e, C300e (I parked beside a C350e), e300e, and GLC300e. It looks like the "e" at the end implies "half electric" :roll: Perhaps at one point (when designing the naming convention), Mercedes could not envisage anything "more electric" than a plug-in hybrid.
