Mercedes-Benz launches GLC Coupe with electric off-road capabilities
Mercedes-Benz has launched the new GLC Coupe, featuring electric drive technology that offers both on- and off-road capabilities. Equipped with 4MATIC all-wheel drive and rear axle steering, the vehicle is designed for sporty performance and high efficiency. The latest MBUX infotainment system is enhanced with augmented reality for navigation, while the Hey Mercedes voice assistant is increasingly effective at responding to natural language and user preferences. The GLC Coupe is a stylish and comfortable vehicle that delivers an unparalleled driving experience.
The sporty silhouette of the GLC Coupe features an AVANTGARDE exterior and chrome package with 18-inch light alloy wheels as standard. The AMG Line offers 19- or 20-inch mixed-profile tires and wheel arch liners in vehicle color. The car’s precise edges and dramatic surfaces balance elegance and power. The interior of the car has a clearly structured dashboard with a wing-like profile and flattened vent outlets. The seat design features contoured surfaces that lend visual lightness and redesigned head restraints with enclosed covers.
The GLC Coupe is available with mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines, all offering efficient and dynamic performance on the road. The mild-hybrid variants feature a second-generation integrated starter-generator and a 48-volt on-board electrical system to support hybrid functions, while the plug-in hybrids have sufficient electric-only range to meet practical needs. The GLC Coupe features an updated Driving Assistance Plus package and new systems for off-road driving, including Trailer Maneuvering Assist and an enhanced off-road driving mode. It also boasts a high level of passive safety, meeting stringent Mercedes safety standards.
Mercedes-Benz has prioritized aerodynamics in the design of the GLC Coupe, achieving a minimal drag coefficient of Cd = 0.27 in its most favorable configuration. The ENERGIZING Plus package offers up to seven comfort programs that create a matching atmosphere in the interior to alleviate fatigue or stress, and the AIR-BALANCE package offers individual fragrancing and ionization of outside and inside air. The car is equipped with electrified four-cylinder engines, and the hybrid driving program reserves electric driving mode for the most suitable sections of the route, with a range simulator taking into account external factors that may affect the electric range.
