LOSE A MO­TOR; GAIN AN EDGE

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

Mercedes plans to of­fer the EQC with a choice of driv­e­trains, ac­cord­ing to a re­li­able Wheels source. The 300kw driv­e­train of the pro­to­type seen here will top the line-up, but ap­par­ently there will be the op­tion of a less-pow­er­ful, twom­o­tor AWD ver­sion, plus a sin­gle-mo­tor non-awd vari­ant. This strat­egy means the EQC should be able to un­der­cut the prices of its ri­vals. Ex­pect the sin­gle-mo­tor EQC to wear a tag of $100,000 or so, around $20,000 less than the least costly mod­els in the Model X and I-pace line-ups.
