2021 Mercedes-Benz EQC vs. Its Competition

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQC
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The Mercedes-Benz EQC doesn’t have any direct rival yet.

It’s somewhat smaller than the Audi E-Tron, but rivals the E-Tron’s 4,000-pound tow rating.

The Jaguar I-Pace is significantly smaller, but more of a performance vehicle, and some will likely see the I-Pace as carving out more of its own styling niche.

The Tesla Model Y is closely related to the much-loved Model 3 sedan; while about the same size as the EQC on the outside, it divvies up its interior space in a lower, more carlike fashion versus the Mercedes.

While the Audi and Jaguar both have real-world driving ranges in the 200-mile vicinity, the Tesla Model Y already boasts an EPA-rated 316 miles.

9.0
The 2020 Jaguar I-Pace offers prestige, performance, and a practical body—it hits the current EV target, head-on.
7.8
Ignore the silly falcon doors and the 2020 Tesla Model X is a compelling family electric crossover.
The 2020 Tesla Model Y electric crossover is the next big thing from the automaker, until the next thing.
