The new Mercedes EQC has been spotted testing, and this luxury electric SUV is likely to get all-new motors and batteries when it debuts in 2025. Read on for all you need to know.

  • New Mercedes EQC spotted
  • All-new, sleek design
  • New motors and batteries
  • Improved range expected
  • Possible reveal in 2025

The Mercedes EQC is rumoured to be getting replaced next year, and the new car has been spotted during development testing by Carwow’s spy photographers.

This alternative to the forthcoming Audi Q6 e-tron may share parts with the Mercedes Concept CLA, which should yield a decent improvement on the current car’s 255 miles of range.

New Mercedes EQC design

The new Mercedes EQC was first spotted out and about last year, and even with this heavy disguise on you can see similarities to the EQE SUV.

If you look at it from the side, this new EQC has the same bubble-like shape as the larger EQE. It’s likely been designed to help it slip through the air more easily, something which is helped by the flush-fitting door handles.

There’s not too much to say about the front end for now because it’s so well-covered. You can just about make out the sleek headlights, although they’re temporary units for testing purposes. It doesn’t look like there’s a fake grille under the wrap either.

Those stuck-on tail lights won’t be production units either, however you can expect to see a similar full-width light bar across the rear as the EQE SUV.

New Mercedes EQC motors and batteries

The new Mercedes EQC is still in the early stages of development at the moment, so details of the car’s specs are pretty thin on the ground. When the Mercedes Concept CLA was revealed last year it previewed some new battery tech which would make it into future models, and this SUV is likely to make use of these parts.

As it stands, the EQC uses an 80kWh battery with 255 miles of range, putting it some way behind alternatives like the Jaguar I-Pace and Audi Q8 e-tron. The Concept CLA uses a new type of battery with up to 466 miles of range, and this pack in the larger EQC could give it a range of over 400 miles.

When will the new Mercedes EQC go on sale?

You can expect to see the new Mercedes EQC make a debut in 2025, however it’s a bit early to put a price on it.

The current car starts from £74,330, so expect this new model to fetch north of £80,000.
