Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) will be showcasing the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQ at its EQ Brand Exhibition next month. The study, known as Generation EQ, is being brought in to highlight the electric direction of the automaker and to help create awareness of MBM’s EQ Power push in the country.

The electric SUV concept will be on display at the public roadshow, which will take place at The Waterfront in Desa Park City from May 4-7, 10 am to 6 pm daily.

The Generation EQ revealed the automaker’s new electric vehicle sub-brand when it made its Paris debut in 2016. The four-seater study – which previews the EQC SUV that will be coming into the market in 2019 – is powered by two electric motors, located on the front and rear axles, with juice provided by and a battery in the vehicle floor.

The electric all-wheel drive setup has a total output of 300 kW (402 hp) and 700 Nm of torque, providing the vehicle with a 0-100 km/h sprint time of under five seconds. In terms of operating range, the vehicle is able to provide zero-emissions travel of up to 500 km.
