What is Mercedes-Benz EQ?

Just recently, Mercedes-Benz announced the EQ lineup of battery electric vehicles, dedicated to continuing the legacy of Mercedes-Benz commitment to innovation. The EQ vehicles were first announced in 2016, but by 2022, the plan is to have ten EQ models available for drivers like you. Right now, there are numerous EQ vehicles in the works, including the EQC, EQV, EQA, EQB, EQE, and EQS. Every new Mercedes-Benz EQ vehicle will be powered by a lithium ion battery, providing you with the same Mercedes-Benz athleticism and engagement, only in the quietest, calmest, smoothest, and cleanest manner possible. In fact, electric drive systems have multiple advantages over internal combustion engines, including instantaneous power to the wheels, providing you with greater torque and acceleration. What's more, is that every Mercedes-Benz EQ model will stand out with the most distinguished and sophisticated styling possible both inside and out.

What's the Difference Between EQ, EQ Powe, and EQ Power+?

Every vehicle that has the EQ badge will either be a fully electric or semi-electric vehicle. EQ vehicles are fully electric and use no gasoline components. EQ Power vehicles are hybrid vehicles that use both an electric motor and a traditional internal combustion engine. EQ Power+ models are high-performance hybrid vehicles from the Mercedes-Benz AMG sector, providing you with enhanced performance at every turn.

Can I Charge a Mercedes-Benz Hybrid or Electric Vehicle at Home?

Every Mercedes-Benz electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle will come with a standard charging cable that you can plug into any outlet in your home. However, if you want a faster charging time at home, you can upgrade to installing a level 2 charger, which is a 240-volt charger.
