Mercedes Benz cancels delayed release of EQC SUV in North America

To say the launch of the Mercedes Benz EQC electric SUV has been a bit bumpy might be an understatement. Now it has gone from bad to worse as the German automaker has cancelled its release in Canada and the U.S.

Mercedes initially planned to release the purpose-built electric vehicle (EV) in North America in early 2020. Those plans changed in late 2019 when the automaker said it was delaying the release for one year as part of a strategic decision to first grow demand in Europe.

According to a statement to Autoblog, the North American launch has now been cancelled.

“Following a comprehensive review of market developments, the EQC will not be offered in the United States for now.”

Despite the bad news, the company still plans to launch an EV this side of the pond in 2021. The luxury EQS electric sedan is scheduled to debut soon, and arrive in showrooms later this fall.
