As an industry leader, Mercedes-Benz continues to push the limits in the performance and technology of their vehicles, including the use of electric power. Discover more about the advanced Mercedes-Benz electric vehicle technology and lineup today at Mercedes-Benz of Charleston.

Electric Vehicle Technology

There are three levels to the EQ electric technology that can be found in the Mercedes-Benz lineup:

  • EQ: EQ signifies a fully electric vehicle that is powered by a Lithium-ion battery.
  • EQ Power: Vehicles in this category are plug-in hybrids that pair EQ electric motor technology with a traditional gas engine.
  • EQ Power ++: This designation is reversed for high-performance Mercedes-AMG® hybrids that use the electric technology to improve performance.

EQ Benefits

Electric technology offers a variety of benefits beyond being better for the environment. Bridgeport EQ drivers will notice:

  • Refined Driving: EQ vehicles offer drivers a quieter, smoother ride than traditional vehicles.
  • Increased Performance: Vehicles with EQ systems can send greater power to the wheels with no lag time. This means these vehicles offer greater acceleration and torque.
  • Elegant Design: The Mercedes-Benz EQ lineup features a streamlined shape and distinguished design.
  • In-Home Charging: Mercedes-Benz dealers like Mercedes-Benz of Charleston can arrange to have a new-generation wallbox installed at your home so you can easily charge up overnight.

In addition to the in-home charging, Mercedes-Benz is committed to building additional infrastructure to support electric vehicles.
