Reminder : In the world of Cheyu, only the most authentic car reviews are made. This article is a series of articles on [Cheyu World Industry Observation 0168 Mercedes-Benz EQC, etc. Expanded Recall], which is original for Cheyu World, please indicate when reprinting, infringement must be investigated.
In the field of electric vehicles, Beijing Benz, which was deployed as soon as possible, launched Mercedes-Benz EQA, EQB and EQC models. In August this year, Mercedes-Benz launched its first pure electric medium and large sedan based on the EVA platform. This shows that Mercedes-Benz is accelerating the layout of new energy vehicles.
However, like the current situation faced by Audi and BMW, Mercedes-Benz’s layout in the field of new energy vehicles is not as brilliant as the field of fuel vehicles.
The latest data released by the Automobile Dealers Association shows that in August 2022, the first month of the launch of the Mercedes-Benz EQE, its monthly retail sales were only 10 units.
September 2022 is the first full month for the Mercedes-Benz EQE to be launched in China. During the month, the single-month retail sales of the Mercedes-Benz EQE were only 675 units.
At the same time, the previously launched Mercedes-Benz EQC model has a “motor door”, perhaps because of the “oil to electricity” reason, which has been questioned by users.
Moreover, according to the official website of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, Mercedes-Benz has also recalled. On October 28, that is, today, the official website of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine showed that Beijing Benz carried out an expanded recall in China due to the failure of Mercedes-Benz EQC and other electric vehicles.
It is understood that Beijing Benz has filed a recall plan with the State Administration for Market Regulation in accordance with the requirements of the Regulations on the Administration of the Recall of Defective Automobile Products and the Implementation Measures for the Regulations on the Administration of the Recall of Defective Automobiles.
Mercedes-Benz expands recall of some models
From December 15, 2022, Beijing Benz has decided to expand the recall of some EQC electric vehicles with production dates from December 5, 2019 to September 17, 2022, totaling 3,345 units.
At the same time, from February 1, 2023, the recall of some EQA and EQB electric vehicles with a production date between February 11, 2020 and October 10, 2022 will be expanded, totaling 8,078 vehicles.
As for the reason, it is due to the manufacturing deviation of the electric drive module of the vehicle involved, and the cooling system in the electric drive module may have insufficient sealing, resulting in leakage of coolant.
Once the coolant slightly seeps into the motor, if it is used for a long time, the insulation resistance value of the high-voltage system may be reduced, resulting in the vehicle not starting.
In addition, under extreme conditions, the output power of the electric drive module of the vehicle will be reduced, which may lead to potential safety hazards in the vehicle.
In this case, Beijing Benz decided to replace the rebuilt electric drive module assembly for the vehicles within the recall scope free of charge through authorized sales, so as to eliminate potential safety hazards.
The user needs to be reminded here that, before the vehicle is recalled for repair, if there is a relevant fault information prompt, then the user should contact the Mercedes-Benz authorized service center in time to deal with it.
At the same time, this recall is an expanded recall of the “Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. recalls some EQC electric vehicles” released on February 18, 2022.
Therefore, the recall measures of the “Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. recalls some EQC electric vehicles” released on February 18, 2022 were changed to: free replacement of the improved electric drive module assembly for the vehicles within the recall scope.
As the three pure electric vehicles of Beijing Benz, the sales performance of these three models in September was not very good. According to data from the Automobile Dealers Association, in September 2022, the monthly retail sales of Mercedes-Benz EQA were 337 units.
In September 2022, the monthly retail sales of Mercedes-Benz EQB were 213 units. Compared with August 2022, its retail sales fell by 69.04%, nearly 70%.
In September 2022, the monthly retail sales of Mercedes-Benz EQC was 235 units. Compared with August 2022, the sales of Mercedes-Benz EQC fell by 29.4%, nearly 30%.
