Very disappointed in the range of 200 miles. Means a lot less in hot climate or cold for that matter. The Nissan Leaf will over take these specs sooner than later and probably more economical. I was willing to unload my 2017 C300 with sport package but now it doesn't look promising and I have been pumped up for electric for a while. Oh well bring on the E-Tron. I could pull the deposit on that if it disappoints.
Where have you seen that 200 mile range figure? Most of the sites I've seen are reporting a 280 mile range on the current NEDC test cycle. The listed charging times are decent at 40 mins, as is the power output of 400hp.
Here is a little more on range as reported on "The Verge".
(Mercedes-Benz USA initially sent out press materials that said the EQC’s estimated range was both “around” and “up to” 200 miles. A representative for the company told The Verge after publish: “Our colleagues in Stuttgart have advised us that the preliminary estimated range figure for the EQC of 200 miles for the U.S. is incorrect.”)
While Mercedes-Benz teased a range of around 300 miles with the concept version, the production EQC will potentially travel less than that on a full charge. Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler says it estimates the EQC will get about 280 miles per charge, but that’s based on the notoriously optimistic NEDC standards used in Europe. For comparison, the Jaguar I-Pace is rated for 300 miles with NEDC but is rated at 240 miles with the EPA in the United States.
