As one of their best Formula E drivers, Nyck de Vries knows how to push an electric car to its limits. That is why Mercedes-Benz allowed him to put in a few laps at the Autodromo Riccardo Paletti. Their first electric SUV, it offers 402 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque at all wheels. Top speed is limited to 112 mph to prolong the life of the 80 kWh battery. She is a little heavy at 5,346 lbs, but that weight is very low, allowing for fun in the corners.
If you like the lines but you aren’t ready for electric, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 offers 469 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque from its twin turbo V8. At $73,750 it is $5,850 more expensive than the electric model and is only capable of 16 mpg in the city. The EQC has an EPA-certified range of 220 miles, so its a tough decision.
