Real life safety: The EQC and safety.

Most advanced crash test centre in the world.

The new EQC is also a genuine Mercedes 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’s 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.

In this episode of #MBvideocar, Martin Hosang takes the X-Class off-road in Villingen-Schwenningen.

The Mercedes-Benz of pickups offers outstanding off-road capability, high payload and immense pulling power as well as ride comfort and handling dynamics on the road. This high level of on-road performance is largely down to the wide track, the long wheelbase, and the sophisticated comfort suspension. It consists of a ladder-type frame, double-wishbone independent front suspension, a five-link rear axle with a rigid section, and coil springs on both axles.
