Hi All. New company car time, and the EVs are a-plenty on the list. I'm looking for something I can go hiking and camping with and am entertaining the idea of an EV over a PHEV LR discovery sport.
Does anyone have any reviews or YouTube vids on the STOCK EQC off road? It seems every search I do results in a pointless bespoke EQC 4x4 vehicle protype review with a foot of extra clearance and wheel arch flares.
I'm trying to understand the EQCs capabilities in terms of traction management, descent control, etc. The Audi Etron seems reasonably well tested off-road, but does the Merc have any off road capability beyond a tesla?

Welcome @XplusYplusZ! Are you planning on doing a lot of off-roading with the EQC? This video is in German but shows the EQC driving in snow.

With normal set up, I think its off road abilities are fairly limited. For example, it's not uncommon to scrape the mudflaps on city speed bumps... That doesn't matter very much, and I guess this can be reasonably easy adjusted / flaps removed or replaced. But it speaks to a set up, including clearance, that isn't really designed for farm or forest use.
