By market launch, 200 prototypes and pre-production vehicles of the EQC will have finished tests covering several million kilometres across four continents (Europe, North America, Asia and Africa). The test programme comprises more than 500 individual tests. Like all Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the EQC must complete the demanding standard test programme. There are also special tests for the electric powertrain, the fuel cell, and the interplay of all powertrain components. In the process the test experts are able to build upon the extensive findings from their digital testing work.
