Mercedes EQB .. electric SUV

Mercedes unveiled the EQB at the 2021 Shanghai International Auto Show, an electric SUV that made its debut on the company's electric roadmap late last year.

The new model is very similar to the company's current GLB SUV, but has a redesigned front fascia and an all-electric platform.

The EQB features a square design, and more classic SUV design than the EQS. It is a little taller and can hold up to 7 people. There are two seats in the third row, which is enough for adults.

Like most luxury electric cars today, it has two large screens, one for the dashboard system and the other for the infotainment system, both of which are powered by Mercedes' MBUX.

Mercedes launched the EQS earlier this month, and it is equipped with a large 107.8 kWh battery with an estimated range of 770 km.

EQB is the first electric SUV sold in the US after the company abandoned its plans to launch the EQC electric SUV in the US in February.

It is also the second electric vehicle Mercedes-Benz sells in the United States after the EQS went on sale later that year.

However, the battery supplied with the EQB is much smaller, at only 66.5 kW, with a reduced range of 420 km and can be charged up to 100 kW. However, Mercedes said it is developing a version with a longer autonomy. .

EQB offers versions with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive with a maximum power of 270 hp. It will make its debut in China and Europe in late 2021. The US model will be imported from Europe from 2022.

No pricing info, but it should be considerably less than the EQS, over $ 100,000, especially since the battery is much smaller.
