The start of sales of the electric Mercedes EQC crossover is late because of batteries


The start of sales of the electric Mercedes EQC crossover is late because of batteries
If you were already going to make purchase of the perfect new and completely electric Mercedes-Benz EQC crossover which is recently presented by the company to you probably it is necessary to stock up with patience.

of Mercedes-Benz is forced to postpone start of sales of new model of completely electric crossover until the middle of 2019, and production of cars has to begin in the spring of the 2019th.

Idle time is connected with the fact that the Daimler Accumotive company which is responsible for assembly of lities - ion batteries for the car, still is at a stage of hiring of new employees. By the end of this year it is planned to employ about 500 more new workers.

Finally release of batteries has to begin since 2019 and if everything goes according to the plan, then after it, spring of 2019, assembly of the SUV starts.

However, the company assures that delays are temporary as Daimler Accumotive simply expands the existing production capacities which provided about 200 thousand batteries a year earlier. And now the purpose of Mercedes is full electrification of all the models (including hybrid and electric motors) by 2022 that demands significant increase in the production of batteries.

Is interesting that earlier main competitor in the person of Audi also has been forced to postpone start of sales of the electric e-tron crossover because of problems with development of the new software for the car.
