Mercedes Launches Its First Electric SUV To Production In Mid-2019
The Mercedes-Benz EQC becomes closer to series production. The carmaker plans to fully start the assemblage of its first electric SUV in the middle of next year.
The company has already revealed the new model, which joined the electromobile race. The assembly line is being prepared and tested now. Technicians are adjusting the conveyor, optimizing the production process and fixing the flaws.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC (pictured) will go to mass production in mid-2019.
We suppose, Daimler hurried somewhat with the premiere of the EQC SUV. A lot of time remains before its production start.
Of course, the automaker did not want to keep up with the Audi e-tron quattro already put on the conveyor. Though Audi had to temporarily stop production due to some problems.
The Big German Three will probably align in their schedules in future. Now Mercedes-Benz is engaged in hire of new employees for Deutsche Accumotive (subsidiary of battery manufacturing) to double the staff to about 1,000 people. This is about the factory in German Kamenz.
The batteries for the EQC and later for other EVs of the brand will be produced at eight plants in total: five in Germany and one in each country – USA, China, Thailand.
