Mercedes to cut their EQC production by half

As per the reports there has been a cut by Mercedes-Benz to cut their production target of electric SUV EQC by half for a shortage of battery cell form the LG Chem as per the new reports coming in from Germany.

EQC is the final next gen of Mercedes Benz’s electric vehicle coming from the house of Daimler and it is launching their new series of EQ from the automaker of Germany.

Apart from that, it is off to a difficult start. In the month of October, it had recalled their first batch of the production of EQC electric SUVs due to a problem which may block its transmission. Besides, the sales and production have been very low.

In their domestic market of the home country Germany, the Mercedes-Benz had delivered just a few dozen units in the year before.

In the previous month, there was an announcement that the deliveries of EQC had been delayed one more year to the year 2021. At that time, the Mercedes-Benz had made a claim that it was going to be prioritizing its deliveries in Europe.

There have been reports which are saying that the sources within the company had told them that they are going to revisit the target of production down by 30,000 units for the year 2020 of the EQC. The units had been down due to a major shortage in supply of the cells of battery from the LG Chem.

Daimler had a target of selling close to 25,000 EQC vehicles in the year 2019 however it could manage only 7,000. A lot of the other EVs were affected by the shortage of battery like the Ionig from Hyundai.
