From appealing design, extraordinary driving pleasure, high levels of everyday suitability and maximum safety. EQ represents "emotion and intelligence", two Mercedes-Benz brand values. It comprises all essential aspects related to customer-focused electric mobility and goes beyond the vehicle itself.
Which is why we are flicking the switch: thanks to the product and technology brand EQ, we are not just looking at vehicles, we are expanding our offering to include specific products, services and innovations which go far beyond just driving. The way in which we travel, how we use energy, how we intuitively interact with our vehicles – all of that will change.
Did you know that some 100% electric cars have the ability to drive 300 miles on a single charge - and that’s a figure that’s ever-increasing, and most electric car drivers charge their vehicles on their drive, garage or a nearby on-street residential charge point.
What’s more is that electric cars could cost up to a third less than a diesel or petrol car to run, as well as being cheaper to maintain. But most importantly, they are far better for the environment as they don’t even have an exhaust meaning that air quality is improved significantly. So with global warming being an ever-growing concern, electric cars are not only beneficial for you, but also for the greater good.
Which is why we’ve partnered with Go Ultra Low. They are a joint Government and car industry campaign, there to give you unbiased advice on making the switch to an electric vehicle.
