If the powertrain remains like the concept, then expect a high-performance electric SUV with 402 horsepower.

Mercedes will enter into the burgeoning segment of electric, premium crossovers with the launch of the EQ C in Stockholm, Sweden, on September 4. Until then, these spy shots are our best look yet at the upcoming EV before it officially debuts in a few weeks. This test mule was charging while undergoing hot weather evaluations in Death Valley, California.

The EQ C has a look that should make it look good alongside the rest of Mercedes’ SUV lineup, especially the GLC-Class. The EV uses a traditional two-box shape but with very smooth lines. To break up the curves, there is a set of angular headlights at the front.
