Introducing the new Mercedes-Benz EQB
Utilising the same long wheelbase as the GLB, the Mercedes-Benz EQB is an all-electric 7-seater vehicle perfect for families.
Several models will be available with various power ratings and you will be able to choose between front-wheel and 4MATIC all-wheel drive.
Joining the Mercedes-Benz EQ range, the EQB will be launching late 2021 and will appeal to drivers who want a car that is stylish and fun to drive, yet require something that is functional and spacious.
Design and Practicality
Aforementioned, the new EQB is a 7-seater car; making it very practical and well-suited for families.
There are two seats in the third row that can comfortably fit people up to 5ft 4 inches tall and they also have ISOFIX points for child seats; meaning a total of up to four child seats can be fitted in rows two and three, plus one more in the front passenger seat.
Head to the boot and you are presented with a generous loadspace with a maximum capacity of 1,710 litres.
In terms of design you can expect elements that are typical of the Mercedes-Benz EQ range such as the black panel grille with central star and the distinctive continuous light strip at the front and rear of the compact SUV.
Technology and Safety
As expected with all Mercedes-Benz cars, the interior is loaded with class-leading technology and the luxurious cabin features the innovative and intuitive Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system.
Intelligent driving assistance systems ensure drivers of the EQB are well supported with daily driving and include:
- Active Land 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 EQB will be available as the EQB 300 or EQB 350 from launch.
In addition to choosing from various models and power ratings, you will also be able to choose between front-wheel or 4MATIC all-wheel drive versions of the luxury compact SUV.
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.
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-Benz Wallbox rather than at 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.
