Mercedes-Benz has introduced a special edition of its all-electric EQC. The limited EQC Edition 1886 was unveiled last week at the New York International Auto Show.

“The EQC is the pioneer of our future Mercedes-Benz EQ vehicle portfolio. For the market launch, the EQC Edition 1886 serves as a reminder of the invention of the first automobile and we are emphasizing the pioneering spirit that sustains and characterizes us today more than ever.

“Back then, we were the ones to first revolutionize individual mobility. The EQC now once again marks the departure into a new era. An era in which electric mobility is reliable, simple and at the same time exciting,” said Britta Seeger, member of the board of management of Daimler, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Sales.

“The EQC Edition 1886 not only stands for progressive design, exciting driving dynamics and a range more than suitable for daily use, it also stands for intelligent additional services that anticipate and fulfil the driver’s needs. Long-term, worry-free vehicle use is the focus here.”

Like the standard EQC, the Edition 1886 has a water-cooled onboard charger (OBC) with an output of 7.4kW and supports AC charging at home and at public charging stations. Charging at a Mercedes-Benz Wallbox is up to three times faster than at a domestic power socket, and the EQC also offers DC charging as standard. Depending on the status of charge, the EQC can be charged with a maximum output of 110kW at an appropriate charging station.
