Introducing the new EQB by Mercedes-EQ
The EQB by Mercedes-EQ is an all-electric, luxury SUV that is perfect for families. Utilising the same wheelbase as the GLB, it prioritises comfort and practicality whilst still possessing engaging driving dynamics for times when you are driving in a more spirited manner.
There are multiple models to choose from offering various levels of power output as well as 4MATIC all-wheel drive availability. With a diverse range of advanced technology and safety features on offer, your EQB can be specified to ensure it is a perfect match for your lifestyle.
Launched at the end of 2021, the EQB combines the distinctive features of the Mercedes-EQ range with a stylish design and high performance figures, making it a great match for drivers that want to enjoy their time behind the wheel without having to sacrifice space and comfort.
Design and Practicality
Well-suited for families thanks to its 7-seat setup, the EQB offers top levels of practicality and combines it with expressive design elements such as the continuous light strip seen on both the front and rear of the vehicle.
Multiple child seats can be fitted around the cabin courtesy of ISOFIX mounting points residing in both the second and third row as well as the front passenger seat. The cabin has been designed to be highly flexible; whether your rear passengers need more legroom or you want to take advantage of the maximum 1,710-litre loadspace, the EQB is a match for all.
The premium yet robust interior also adds to appeal, forming a pleasant ambiance within. Plush, high-quality materials are used throughout, with harder textures being used on common scuff points to increase durability.
Technology and Safety
As expected with all Mercedes-EQ cars, the interior is loaded with class-leading technology and luxurious cabin features such as the innovative and intuitive Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system.
Technology such as cruise control, adaptive high beam assist and ambient lighting come as standard, whilst optional equipment such as heated seats and a panoramic sliding sunroof are also available to enhance comfort and driving pleasure.
Intelligent driving assistance systems ensure drivers of the EQB are well supported with daily driving and include:
- Active Lane Keeping Assist
- Active Brake Assist
- Autonomous braking
- Driving Assistance Package consisting of: the turning manoeuvre function, the emergency corridor function and the exit warning function
Range and Performance
Sharing its advanced drive technology with the EQA, the all-electric EQB will be available with the EQB 300 and EQB 350 power levels from launch. The higher powered EQB 350 is the punchiest, going from 0 to 62mph in 6.0 seconds, whilst the EQB 300 completes the sprint in 7.7 seconds.
Boasting a drag Cd value from 0.28, the EQB is designed with important aerodynamic measures such as the completely closed cooling air control system in the upper section, the aerodynamically efficient front and rear aprons, a smooth and almost completely enclosed underbody, optimised Aero wheels and specifically adapted front and rear wheel spoilers.
Being an all-electric vehicle, the EQB is a cost-effective alternative to cars that run on traditional fuels. Up to 257 miles of range (WLTP) is both suitable for longer journeys and more than enough for day-to-day driving for most.
Charging times vary depending on the model and the charging equipment used. It is worth noting that the time is dramatically reduced when using a Mercedes-EQ Wallbox rather than a household socket.
Whether you choose to charge at home or at a public charging station, the EQB can be charged at up to 11kW with alternating current (AC) using the onboard charger.
Faster charging is also possible using direct current (DC) fast-charging stations with a maximum power of up to 100kW. Using a fast-charging station will enable the battery to be charged from 10 to 80 percent in just over 30 minutes.
