7 places for the electric SUV!

After the EQA and its respective GLA, it is the GLB’s turn to go “zero emissions” with the EQB. A family SUV that incorporates all the codes of the Mercedes electric range. A little too much, no doubt?

New Electric SUV for the star firm which no longer has previews at this Munich show. THE’EQB is not however completely new since it had already been presented in China and is based on the GLB platform. It is above all the opportunity to Mercedes to have a 7-seater family model in its future range and to offer more and more electric cars to reach its objective in 2030.

2 versions for Europe

We can regret the lack of daring Mercedes seeing this EQB. The latter takes the features of the classic GLB by adding the light strip at the back of the EQ models. The large black and full grille confirms the presence of electricity under the hood of this SUV. Note that unlike the new EQS and EQE, this EQB does not have a dedicated platform and is grafted on that of the thermal model.

The vehicle is entitled to two configurations (and possibly more in the future). The 300 4MATIC develops 230 hp and 390 Nm when the most powerful 350 4MATIC pushes the cap to 292 hp and 520 Nm. As indicated in the name, the EQB is currently only available with the all-wheel drive since it has two motors: one on each axle.

More surprisingly, the manufacturer only offers one type of battery with a capacity of 66 kWh. The autonomy is however the same for the two versions with 419 km

The practical electric!

As on the EQE, the SUV 7 places benefits from paddles on the steering wheel to adjust braking regeneration. There is also assistance for economical driving, various aids such as autonomous driving and other gadgets. The entire dashboard is taken from the GLB without major modification.

But the main advantage of this EQB is being able to take seven people on board. To do this, there are two very distinct versions, as Renault could do with the Espace and the “Grand” Espace. In all cases, the rear bench is sliding and folding with 40/20/40 backrests. The second row at the back can then be raised or folded into the floor and accommodate small children. The trunk, it retains a fairly small size with 495 and 465 dm3 depending on your configuration.

All that is missing is information on prices in France and Europe that Mercedes has not yet communicated. The EQB should arrive sometime at the end of the year 2021, with a special launch series Edition 1, fitted with 20-inch copper-colored rims.
