First Drive in an All Electric Mercedes – Whats Under The Hood?!

  • Published: 21 May 2019
  • Mercedes is rolling their First ALL ELECTRIC SUV off the assembly lines. Dan and I got to test them out on the roads of Norway. The Mercedes EQC is the first of many electric vehicles coming from Mercedes, and for good reason. Most vehicle manufactures have plans to make electric versions of their vehicles. Electric is just *that* much better than gas. More efficient, more powerful, and just fun to drive. Come with Dan and I as we see what makes the Mercedes EQC so quiet, and what differences we can spot between Mercedes and Tesla.

    Check out Dan's favorite things about the EQC:

    And see what happened to my drone :-( here:

    Here is the first Inside look at the new All Electric Mercedes. Everything you need to know.

              Everyone used to have no interest in electric cars until luxury electric cars (Tesla) came out.

                As long as EV need that much Ressources its not a real alternative. I hope they will improve it because i believe in technology and science

                        What makes the hitch work is because it's simple but electronic controlled thanks but best looking one of seen in awhile (the vehicle)

                            You CAN'T save the planet with current electric cars. The battery's build in to these cars are more harmful to the environment in being produced and needing to be swapped out every 3 years or so, because of being grilled by charging them so fast and then not really being recyclable, than fossil fueled cars. Hydrogen is the future, not battery's! And as long as they do not produce electric cars that run on hydrogen, we should all stay away, because a fossil fuel powered car produces its environmental pollution now and we are effected by them now. These battery's will be unrecyclable problems for ever. You can go thank Elon for this problem. As he had the chance to switch to hydrogen he decided not to, because of it being costly, which by now would have come down to normal levels as soon as the infrastructure is build, which also needed to done to the xharging stations that we now have. Stupid. Stay away

                              @Phil Terry Actually your answer seems kind of ignorant, because who gives a shit about that, even if they would hold 20 years the problem persists. After all that time you still have several hundred kilos of dead battery that can only be recycled to about 50 percent. But even if you ignore that, the problem that most of the environmental pollution on EVs is created in the production of all the batteries, which is more than double that of combustion engine cars. So you are really trying to tell me that hydrogen fueled electric cars, where the only waste product is water, aren't the future? Cars which can actually be climate neutral when the energy for the electrolysis is 100% green energy. Cars that do not have to carry around hundreds of kilos of dead weight. Where is that ignorant, you ignorant?

                              All Ev's in the UK come with a seven to eight year warranty. Your post is so full of ignorance, I don't know where to begin.

                            4:56 Another perk is that there is hardly any maintenance.

                            Well unless you count that $10.000+ service where they swap out the batteries because they have degraded to a point where the range is severely limited.

I really hope that the super capacitor, as an individual device, could be charged to 1000 volts soon. That would be the ideal replacement for batteries. If this happens you could have a bank of capacitors the size of a large suitcase that charges in 2 minutes, basically lasts forever, is totally safe for the environment, costs less, is lighter, and immune to cold or hot. :0 :)
