The electric future is here with Mercedes-Benz EQ. The next wave of Mercedes-Benz vehicles will bring a new era of luxury driving through expert engineering and cutting-edge technology
Lithium-ion battery-powered fully electric vehicles.
Advanced EQ technology on plug-in hybrids.
Mercedes-AMG high-performance hybrids
Driving an electric car is more than having the latest and newest technology and features. The benefits are universal—from increased safety to the performance of the vehicle itself.
Calm, smooth, quiet and clean, electric vehicles represent not only the future of the automobile but of luxury driving itself.
Electric drive systems have several advantages over regular internal combustion engines. They deliver power to the wheels instantly, with no lag time, for higher torque and acceleration.
The Mercedes-Benz EQ lineup has a distinguished look and feel with an streamlined, elegant shape and a simple, yet sophisticated interior.
There are thousands of electric charging stations all across Canada, and more are popping up every day. Find charging stations near you by visiting: http://www.caa.ca/evstations/. Here you can see all of the charging stations in your area and plan trips knowing where you can recharge along the way.
In most cases, people charge at home and at work when their car is parked and they’re busy doing other things. Plug-in hybrids have a shorter range in fully electric mode but can be powered by the vehicle’s combustion engine for longer trips.
Mercedes-Benz has set many safety standards that all other automobiles follow. The same high safety standards that define Mercedes-Benz cars apply to plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles. The batteries are all safely protected in the event of an accident, and depending on the severity of the accident, the high voltage system is automatically disconnected in fractions of a second.
It is a common myth that electric vehicles can only go a short distance. To see where an electric vehicle could take you, visit http://www.caa.ca/evstations/. Here you can see all of the charging stations in your area and plan possible trips and where you can recharge along the way.
Yes. In fact, they perform even better in areas like torque and acceleration. Because the drive system is electric as opposed to mechanical, the reaction is instant, without the lag of a typical gas engine. Electric vehicles are also quieter and smoother for a more pleasant driving experience.
All vehicles with an EQ badge have an electric or semi-electric powertrain. EQ vehicles are fully electric, with no gas component whatsoever, whereas vehicles with EQ Power are hybrids, featuring an electric motor alongside a traditional internal combustion engine. Vehicles with EQ Power+ are high-performance hybrids from Mercedes-AMG that use electric technology for enhanced all-around performance.
