Mercedes-Benz teases electric crossover

The EQ C will make its debut on September 4th.

Mercedes-Benz has released a dark, enigmatic teaser photo accompanied only by two words: "Mystic Details." That's not a lot to go on, but we're fairly sure this is our first official look at the company's upcoming electric crossover.

The teaser image lives up to its promise of showing details, though its mysticism is debatable. We see a grille with a thick chrome frame and numerous horizontal slats, including one that lights up. It's flanked by swept-back headlights with integrated LEDs. The design matches the camouflaged test mules we've seen criss-crossing the globe over the past few months.

The model -- which is tentatively called EQ C -- will spearhead Mercedes' electric car offensive when it goes on sale at some point next year. It will be about the same size as the GLC and it will ride on a brand-new modular platform developed specifically for battery-powered models. Specifications -- like the size of the battery pack and the driving range it provides -- won't be made public until the EQ C makes its debut.

Mercedes-Benz will introduce the EQ C online on September 4th. We expect to see more teaser images in the coming days.
