Every surface inside this bespoke Mercedes EQC has been enhanced.
It was only a matter of time before aftermarket tuners offered new takes on the Mercedes EQC. Last week, Brabus boosted the electric SUV's output to 422 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque. As a result of this performance increase, the modified electric SUV will now do the 0-62 mph sprint in 4.9 seconds, down from 5.1 seconds in the stock version.
Now, German tuner Hofele Design, a company that specializes in bespoke Mercedes models, has released the first images and details of its new opulent version of the Mercedes EQC. Originally, Hofele was planning to present the bespoke SUV at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show before the event was unceremoniously canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
On the outside, Hofele has added a slew of exterior enhancements. The changes are subtle, but Hofele claims they "elevate the standard EQC to the premium luxury class of EV's".
For example, the tuned EQC is painted in an expensive Alubeam high-gloss finish, which was also applied to the Mercedes EQ Silver Arrow Concept and EQ Concept. Hoffle's "Turbine" wheels finished in dark shadow chrome complete the look and are part of the new forged alloy wheel range the tuner was planning to showcase at Geneva.
Bigger changes can be found inside the exquisite interior, as nearly every surface has been enhanced with high-quality leather and Alcantara materials with meticulous detailing and unique perforation and stitching designs. The owner of this commissioned EQC shown in photos features a very eye-catching Armagnac orange leather trim in contrast to the sleek Alubeam exterior. Hofele hasn't mentioned any powertrain upgrades, so the bespoke Mercedes EQC has likely been left stock. In the standard EQC, two electric motors combine to produce a combined 402 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque
More details about Hofeles' bespoke Mercedes EQC will be announced soon along with three other bespoke Mercedes models that were originally going to debut at Geneva.
