Mercedes-Benz EQC Crash Test: Destroy to Create

[EQC 400 4MATIC: Stromverbrauch kombiniert: 22,2 kWh/100 km; CO₂-Emissionen kombiniert: 0 g/km.*] Experience crash tests with the new Mercedes-Benz EQC. Subscribe to Mercedes-Benz on YouTube: />
The new Mercedes-Benz EQC is also a genuine Mercedes-Benz when it comes to passive safety. In addition to the usual, extensive programme of crash tests, the brand applies stringent safety standards to the battery and all component parts carrying electrical current. In many cases these standards exceed legal requirements.

Mercedes-Benz’ extensive experience of high-voltage drive systems has led to a special safety concept. The EQC’s accident safety was validated at the Mercedes-Benz technology centre for vehicle safety (TFS), the most advanced crash test centre in the world. Here vehicles, including prototypes with large electric batteries, have been tested under harsh crash conditions. The result is a whole array of constructive measures which deliver the EQC’s high level of crash safety. #switchtoEQ

  1. Nehmt euch mal bitte vom Design her ein Beispiel an dem Laborghini SUV "Urus". Das kantige sieht meiner Meinung nach besser aus als das runde Design.

  2. Excellent teaser, I love it! It shows the values of Mercedes. Also the slogan "Electric now has a Mercedes" is much better than the competition (Audi: "Elektro wird Digital / Elektro wird Audi" hä?). You have started late, I'm driving a Hyundai Ioniq Electric in the meantime, unfortunately not many pure electric car options from German car makers at this time, so sad. Come on, please get your stuff together and get up to speed in the market!!! Otherwise you will see the backlights of other EV makers who are faster, cheaper and already gained a longer field experience. About the crash test: I'm actually more curious about a strong side/pole impact, as it is a much higher danger for the battery pack in the floor.

  3. Volvo and Mercedes are the safest car you can drive.
    Ive crashed several times (not my fault) and one was right into a rock wall with my V70. The car got an dent. Drove about 40-50km/h. Not that fast, but too fast on icy roads.
    Too bad the B-class doesn’t have QC. And Volvo hasn’t an EV atm.
    Im driving an Leaf now. Electric cars are much safer than ICE.

  4. Werden eigentlich für sowas komplett neue funktionierende Autos verwendet? Oder bastelt man sich da n Auto aus Teilen wo eh B-Ware, also Ausschuss ist. Ich meine ist ja voll schade um die Rohstoffe, wenn dann die ganzen Autos zerstört werden, obwohl die Super gewesen wären

  5. Has it been tested by NHTSA yet? If so will it get a 5 star in every category and sub-category like every Tesla gets? I’d hope so. Safety really is a huge thing and EVs are a lot better in that regard.

  6. Daimler is showing a better approach in entering the EV market than the other german automakers. One point only: no “just as safe” car can be properly new, there is proof they aren’t safe enough

  7. Now do that crash again but with fully charged batteries and some impacts from the side or back. A head on collision with empty batteries proves nothing about the safety of an electric car.

  8. Mercedes: "Mercedes has alway been at the forefront of making sure that we are a leader in safety technology…"

    Volvo: "Am I a joke to you?"

  9. Hey Julie – can you please fix Mercedes' terrible Lane departure warning that jerks you back over using the brakes instead of simply adjusting steering? Also, Mercedes has the worst lane keeping assistance. We were sold the E400 Wagon with the illusion Mercedes was beating Tesla's autopilot. Of course the dealership didn't have any on the lot with all of the safety systems, so we just figured it would be good. Unfortunately it keeps you centered in the lane about as well as a blind person. It plays ping pong with the lane markings.

  10. Ohh, I wish I could talk to people who work in this company because everything is famous in Mercedes because of you guys. Even the camera man is working hard so that he/she can give us the most good look.
    This time I will say Mercedes is good but their workers are best.
