Electric Merc SUV Makes US Debut: Daimler CEO Calls For Incentives

Daimler will begin selling its electric Mercedes-Benz EQC SUV in the US early next year at a starting price of US$67,900 (A$99,618).

The EQC 400 4MATIC can charge its batteries on the move and recharge from 10% to 80% in 40 minutes.

Daimler CEO Ola Kaellenius used this week’s announcement to call for more incentives to develop electric and hybrid vehicles.

Sales of new-energy vehicles, or NEVs, fell 45.6% in October on year, following a 33% decline in September after the Chinese government withdrew incentives to buy NEVs. Daimler believes the EQC and other electric cars will account for 15-25% of its sales by 2025.
