NEW YORK: Mercedes-Benz had a world premiere of a limited special edition of its first electric SUV, namely the EQC at the New York International Autoshow.

The EQC Edition 1886 is available exclusively in metallic high-tech silver. Further individual features include the high-gloss black badge with special EQC Edition 1886 lettering on the mudguard and the 10-spoke 20-inch light-alloy wheels in high-gloss black with white decorative elements.

In the interior, there are new seat designs with upholstery in ARTICO man-made leather/ DINAMICA microfibre in indigo blue and black.

A special EQC Edition 1886 lettering is embroidered into the seat backrests. The lettering can also be found as a badge on the centre console.

There are also specific trim elements in silver matrix look as well as the floor mats with EQC embroidery.

Other features include a Burmester surround sound syste, and a ENERGIZING comfort controller that creates an optimal environment from the lighting mood to the fragrancing and ionisation of the air to keep the user fresh and vitalised.

The ENERGIZING COACH uses data from the vehicle and surroundings to recommend one of the ENERGIZING programmes that fits the situation and the individual.

Aspects such as the traffic situation, weather and length of the journey, for example, are included in the assessment.

In addition, data providing information on the driver's current well-being can also be used.

This is made possible by networking with available Garmin wearables (smartwatches/fitness trackers).

Further optional extras such as electric adjustable driver and front passenger seats with memory function round off the Edition package.

The EQC Edition 1886 will be sold with the service packages “Maintenance Service”, “Pick-up & Delivery Service” as well as “Vehicle Warranty Extension”.

“Maintenance Service” comprises all required maintenance work for up to six years or a mileage of 150,000km.

With the “Pick-up & Delivery Service”, the EQC Edition 1886 will be collected for maintenance work over a period of six years (or up to six times) and will also be returned upon the customer's request.

This service is available from the customer's home, from the office or from any other place within a defined radius around an authorised Mercedes-Benz workshop.

The service package “Vehicle Warranty Extension” protects the vehicle owner against unexpected repair costs beyond the standard Mercedes-Benz new car warranty up to a vehicle age of six years.

The extended vehicle warranty is the optimal enhancement to the standard Battery Certificate for the high-voltage battery, which covers a period of eight years or a mileage of 160,000km.

It guarantees a properly functioning high-voltage battery and also covers a significant capacity loss.

All three service packages are bound to the vehicle for a period of six years and are transferred to subsequent owners in case the vehicle is sold. This additionally contributes to the vehicle's value retention.
