Why you should drive a Mercedes electric car
Mercedes Benz is a German automotive company, best known for providing us with high quality, high performance, luxury cars. Their first electric vehicles were brought to market in 2016, expected to compete with the likes of Tesla and Porsche.
Whilst a relative newcomer to the EV world, they were definitely worth the wait! So, if you’re looking for a luxury EV both inside and out, then a Mercedes EV could be the car for you.

How long has Mercedes been producing EVs?
Mercedes produced their first EV in 1906, with the battery powered ‘Electrique’. Since then, they have continued research into electric solutions, with several trials over the years, improving the technology and efficiency.
After 130 years since Mercedes was first introduced, the EQC model entered the market in 2016 – a mid-sized all electric SUV and the first of many to come for Mercedes.
Today, they have pledged to go all-electric by 2030 where market conditions allow.
Why driving an EV is great
There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.
While Mercedes produce great petrol and diesel cars, the benefits of an EV mean they’re the perfect choice for drivers looking to make the switch to electric:
- There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
- Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
- EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
- Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel
