Mercedes-Benz launches direct-to-buyer EQC sales model

Mercedes-Benz is going to sell the EQC electric car in Australia in a new way — one that reduces the role of conventional dealerships but claims to address buyer concerns. It's also the latest brand to offer online sales for specialist models, something the likes of Toyota, Subaru and Genesis have previously tried, and in some cases continue to offer.

Mercedes-Benz EQC, Toyota Corolla sedan score 5 star ANCAP ratings

The all-electric Mercedes-Benz EQC has followed the Hyundai Kona Electric and Nissan Leaf in achieving a five-star safety rating from independent crash-testing authority ANCAP. The mid-sized EQC SUV, which will go head-to-head with the Audi E-Tron Quattro and Jaguar I-Pace, equalled the best-ever score for child protection. It also fared well when it came to adult occupant protection, with a 96 per cent rating.

Mercedes-Benz Australia's sales dip linked to consumer confidence

Mercedes-Benz Australia’s CEO, Horst von Sanden, says he’s not particularly concerned about dipping luxury car sales this year, though he admits consumer and business confidence is “not great”. Sales of the company’s passenger cars and SUV models are down 7.5 per cent this year, contrasting against six consecutive years of solid - often double digit - growth. Rivals BMW and Audi are in similar positions, down 3.8 per cent and 8.5 per cent respectively.
