I've only had it week and it is my first EV so has been a learning experience. But all in all I'm really enjoying the car.

Would be great to hear from an EQC owner. I’m also considering a purchase for my chauffeur company

3 months on and loving it. The power is instant, it doesn't so much accelerate as jump to 60. Comfortable ride, obviously doesn't corner like my old A-Class but I'm getting a bit old for a boy racer:)

Really easy to live with, have loved being able to start the heating up from the warmth of the house with the weather recently. I haven't been driving particularly conservatively or like a nutter and I've been averaging around 2m/kw. So a full 'tank' to zero would be 160 miles. Usually in the first level of power regeneration. There is a charging station just down the road so just generally top up once or twice a week.

Thanks for the update Slacksquadron. Glad to hear it’s a comfy ride. Rear passenger comfort is a must for my cars. Do you think you’d get anywhere near the 250 range if you drove it conservatively? I often do 250 mile journeys from Gloucestershire to London usually with a break after a hundred miles but that could just be for 30 mins.

From my understanding and correct me if I'm wrong. The onboard AC charger (if purchased after Jan21) only charges at 16amp? I.e. 3.7kw and 11kw?
I believe the charger was changed from the 2019/2020 32amp 3.7kw and 7.4kw to the 11kw 16amp.

Great for Europe, not so much for the UK.

Can a current owner with the upgraded charger confirm please. Thanks

Hi

I'm considering one of these - can you tell me if it has a heated steering wheel? I can't seem to find any info on this or even if one is included with the Premium or Premium Plus packages. Many thanks, Mark

I really don't think it would stretch that far. Mercedes recommend only charging up to 80%. Even with the full 80kw and running it down to zero i don't see it breaking 200 miles on a single charge.

Pretty sure a heated steering wheel is not an option. Certainly was not when I specced mine up.
