“I’m a surfer by trade, so I don’t often get nervous. But just before I sat in the driver’s seat of the EQC, I realized I suddenly was. I have no idea why. But once I finally got adjusted to it, I felt so good – better than in almost any other vehicle I’ve been in. I can hardly describe it except to say this: driving in the EQC feels like floating! It’s just perfect. I waited for a long time for my moment in the EQC, and was amazed at how effortless it is to drive. I was also impressed by the quietness of the drive system, not to mention the acceleration, which was unbelievably smooth.
I already thought everything would be so different from a car with a combustion engine, but I didn’t expect it to be this much better. It turns out my initial nervousness was completely unfounded. I’ve been a big-wave surfer for a long time, and I love riding the perfect wave – and when I drove this car, I suddenly felt like I was surfing on the road. Every metre I put behind me in this vehicle felt like progress – for me personally, but also for all of us. After all, sustainability is more important than ever. As a surfer, I campaign against pollution of the oceans, and now the EQC lets me take a stand on the roads as well.”
