Electric Mercedes-Benz C-Class Might Finally Ditch Current EQ Models' Biggest Flaw

2024-02-20 16:21:32

It's almost impossible to tell apart most Mercedes-EQ models, but that may change with this.

CarBuzz spy photographers have caught the new electric version of the Mercedes C-Class sedan for the first time, giving us our first looks at the exterior and the cabin. Like the SUV version we spotted late last year, it appears that the EQC Sedan will adopt an unusual shape for its headlights, although it's clear that we're still looking at pre-production elements. Even the bumpers are temporary items meant to disguise the true styling of the car, but the good news is that the overall shape of the body itself appears to be more conventional than that of other Mercedes EQ electric vehicles.

Inside the cabin, it appears that there may be two wireless charging spots in the center console just below the dash, with this dash showing an enormous touchscreen panel for the infotainment display. This is topped by what appears to be a small camera, likely for selfies and TikTok, while a pair of air conditioning vents sit below the screen. This suggests that physical buttons and switches won't be fitted anywhere (even those on the wheel are expected to be haptic touchpads). We know that the Hyperscreen will only get more expansive and invasive, but the current C-Class has not received it yet, so this new electric version will likely arrive with no more than 56 inches of total screen area.

With this much camouflage on the car, we're still a long way from a reveal. The automaker has several new products coming this year, but an all-new C-Class is not expected to be among them; the current W206 generation was only revealed in 2021, and with most product cycles lasting six or seven years each, the sedan is due for a facelift, not replacement.

When this new model does arrive, its new styling direction will be mirrored by all its siblings, with major cosmetic changes promised for all EQ models. These will soon drop the EQ nomenclature, too, as Mercedes is committed to going all-electric. Expect a reveal sometime in the next two calendar years or so.
