The first Mercedes-Benz EV is deliberately free of revolutionary tendencies, but for many of its SUV customers it could be an introduction to a new world of motoring.The first Mercedes-Benz fully electric vehicle (EV) to be sold in Australia has arrived. It's called the EQC and is targeted at the Jaguar I-Pace, Tesla Model X, and imminent Audi e-tron.

Pros
Quiet, wafting driving experience
Loaded with cabin tech
Outstanding safety credentials
Understated design a genuine point of difference

Cons
Moderate driving range
Back seats and boot nothing special
Front suspension can get crashy
Supply appears to be quite limited
