Although they were once viewed as little more than a marketing gimmick, the rising demand for electric vehicles has demonstrated that they’re here to stay. And as the charging infrastructure catches up with the ever-growing consumer-base, they’ll only become more prevalent. After all, there’s a reason the Porsche Taycan outsold the 911 in its first production year — EV’s are an engineering marvel. But the reality is that there’s still one area where electric vehicles need to prove their worth: off-road.

Having debuted its fully-electric EQC SUV in 2019, Mercedes-Benz is keen to show just how capable EV’s can be. Dubbed the EQC 4×4², this off-roader is an exercise in extremes. For instance, at 293mm, the ride height has been made twice that of the production car, and it even stands above the esteemed G-Class. It also gains a set of beefy 285/50 R 20 tires, allowing for confident traction regardless of the terrain. In order to house its monstrous wheels, the EQC has been fitted with plastic fender extensions, adding some 200mm to its width. Last but not least, it’s been treated to a custom acoustic system that plays sound inside and out, with the headlights also acting as a set of loudspeakers.
