Mercedes EQC has been teased again in another trailer

The new Tesla Roadster - Tesla's "proposed" hyper-performance electric supercar - has been revealed in Europe, just as Mercedes reveals it EQC.

For the USA market, Mercedes-Benz said the midsize electric SUV is estimated to drive for 200 miles (322 km) on a full charge, according to the EPA's test cycle. "In this way we can continue to ensure both high efficiency and top quality with well-proven production processes".

Wajih Hossenally, an automotive powertrain analyst with IHS Markit, said that Tesla has a strong hold on the EV market at present.

The Model X 75D gets 75Kwh battery pack while I-Pace has a bigger 90Kwh powerhouse.

Future electric cars from Mercedes-Benz will feature far more distinctive styling than the recently revealed EQC SUV, according to EQ sales and marketing boss Jorg Heinermann. The EQC will be will be similar in size to the company's GLC crossover.

Audi on the other hand have already started production for their e-Tron SUV, which is scheduled to launch in under two weeks on September 17 in San Francisco, just sixty miles from the Tesla factory in Fremont.

Powering the new electric SUV will be two motors placed on both the axles with an 80kWh lithium ion battery.

On the road, the Mercedes EQC is expected to last for about 250 miles per single charge. The plan was to invest 10 billion euros (US$12 billion) on the project, but the spending has become "more than that", he said Tuesday, without specifying figures.
