Mercedes-Benz EQC Priced Under Tesla Model X

The Mercedes-Benz EQC was revealed some time ago, but Mercedes has taken to the Los Angeles Auto Show this week to announce additional details, including its price tag. Said price should make Tesla cringe a bit, because the EQC is coming right at the Model X.

Mercedes says its first battery-electric SUV in the U.S. will start at $67,900 when it goes on sale early next year. For those keeping tabs, that’s just over $17,000 less than a base Tesla Model X. Granted, the EQC is packing somewhere around 200 miles of range, whereas the Model X is good for 305 with the Performance version.

Despite lesser range, all EQC models feature an electric motor at both the front and rear axles, enabling all-wheel-drive. Those two motors are supplied power by an 80-kWh battery pack, enabling 402 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque.

Along with the entry price, Mercedes has confirmed EQC will be offered in three trim levels: Progressive, Premium and Advanced. The details of each trim level are still left to mystery, but should come out closer to the EQC’s launch.
