Update article makes just that point. Not a Clean sheet design;
"First of all, the EQC inherits from the GLC, so the German manufacturer was limited to a non-ground-up build.
Translation, another modified conversion after many years of not fully engaging on EVs. I can tell you first hand that I have been privy to their EV development philosophy and they need to be pushed to take any steps to an Ev commitment. The packaging on this car is terrible, it seems they are simply trying to reuse as much as possible. They do not listen to the market and they are very focused on incremental steps based on market fear. Their EV development has been going on for longer than you may think and after many years this it their big reveal for the future. Clearly they could have done much better but it is pretty disappointing at many levels based on the length of time they have been experimenting in this space.
