Daimler will start selling its electric Mercedes-Benz EQC in the United States in early 2019 at a starting price of $67,900, the German automaker stated on Wednesday.

The Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4MATIC, which is capable of charging its batteries on the move, can recharge from 10% to 80% in 40 minutes, Mercedes-Benz USA stated.

Daimler’s electric sports utility vehicle will compete with Tesla Inc’s Model Y SUV, which starts at a cost of $39,000 and will be available in 2021.

Daimler in September reiterated its strategy to have up to 10 electrified car variants by 2022, and CEO Dieter Zetsche stated he hoped the EQC and other electric cars would represent 15% to 25% of its sales by 2025.
