This model is a Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4Matic in Silver decoration.

It is another model in the NZG 1:18 scale programme.  It is unusual because it has working lights.


The model comes in an NZG branded outer box, and inside the model is contained within expanded polystyrene trays.

The review model had no defects or missing parts. 

A button battery is included to power the lights.


The floor pan is fairly simple and includes a battery compartment and an on/off switch.

The wheels are excellent, and the disc brakes are visible behind the spokes.  Nice tyres are fitted.

At the front the Mercedes-Benz emblem and badges are modelled faithfully, and the headlights look realistic.  There is a dummy NZG number plate.

Inside, the detail is excellent and includes a detailed steering wheel, console and door interior. 

The paint finish is excellent and the roof has a clear sun roof panel.

At the rear the lights are high quality and the overall appearance is very good.


The steering works to a moderate angle.

The front and rear doors open to a wide angle.

The front seats are also movable.

The sunroof has an opening blind.  It also tilts.

The front and rear lights work.  The Mercedes-Benz emblem at the front is touch sensitive, and different lighting patterns can be set by repeated touching.


This is a high quality model with a high metal content.

The paintwork is excellent.


The model is reasonable value given the installed electronics.


This is an interesting model and the additional LED lighting options work very well.  It looks great and goes well on NZG's Lohr transporter model.


This model was announced in NZG's Toy Fair News in 2020.
