LOSE A MOTOR; GAIN AN EDGE
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.
