Daimler has published a brief teaser video of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz EQC this week, ahead of its full reveal, scheduled for September 4.

In the short clip posted on Twitter, Mercedes-Benz's parent said it will show off the first all-electric model from the luxury marque next week, also signalling the launch of the EQ electric sub-brand.

The video itself only shows the headlight and part of the grille, revealing a distinct new LED daytime-running light signature, which also extends across the top of the grille.

We can also see a prominent crease through the bonnet from the grille to the A-pillar, and horizontal slats that appear to stretch the length of the grille as well.

The parts we can see here are clearly inspired by the Generation EQ concept previewing the EQC, namely the angular headlight shape blending into the grille element.

While the company is yet to divulge the EQC's specifications, the concept had a dual-electric-motor system with a combined power output of around 300kW and a range of up to 500 kilometres, and we'd argue the production version will aim for about the same.

In terms of size, the 'C' designation indicates the electric SUV should be a mid-sized offering, with dimensions similar to the popular GLC crossover.

Rivals include the upcoming Audi e-tron quattro (due to be revealed in the coming months as well), along with the production version of the BMW iX3 due in 2021.
