The start of production is scheduled for this September in Kecskemét (Hungary) and will reach dealers at the end of the year.

Conventional design, to be electric

Mercedes EQC

We are used to electric cars present a more futuristic aspect. We have seen it in the German brand itself with models such as Mercedes EQS. However, the EQB could almost go through a conventional vehicle with a thermal engine and does not differ much from a GLB. Follow the same line as the rest of the EQ models, with more stylized headlights, a closed grill with a bright black panel, and aid rear pilots, crossing the rear proton.

Likewise, inside there are very few differences with GLB. It preserves the dashboard with a protagonism for the two digital screens, one for the instrumentation and another for the MBUX multimedia system, as well as the exact design of the console. Only a few details in blue will be notified that it is an electrical model. But, at first glance, it might seem that we are in a conventional vehicle. For the entire EQ family, the EQB has a passenger compartment that changes less.

Habitability, up to seven places

One of the strengths of the EQB is that it can have up to seven places. The vehicle is offered in two configurations, five and seven locations, being the latter optional. There are two seats available behind the second row with the seven-seater version, with a much smaller space for people up to 1.65 meters. It is a solution designed for people of short height, especially children.

So far, it is the only electrical compact SUV on the market with the possibility of offering seven places. Its direct rivals, the Audi E-Tron Q4 and the BMW IX3, do not have the third row. Mercedes has done a great job incorporating the third row, considering that it is an electric car and its compact dimensions: 4.68 meters long, 1.83 meters wide, and 1.66 meters high.

Compact size

Its reduced dimensions make the electric SUV a versatile vehicle, equally suitable for the city to travel by road. Visibility is good from all angles, and, together with a driving aid, such as the parking assistant, the parking maneuver is not complicated.

Three motorizations

Initially, the new Mercedes electric SUV will be available with two power levels: EQB 300 4MATIC, 225 HP, and 390 nm torque, and EQB 350 4MATIC, with 292 HP and 520 nm wide as a range of range. Both versions equip total traction when having an engine on each axis.

Below, the EQB 260 version is located, with a single-engine, which will reach later and whose power has not yet been specified. All versions have a 66.5 kWh lithium-ion battery that declares an autonomy of 419 kilometers, both for EQB 300 and EQB 350.

Technological equipment

The electric EQB also stands out by its abundant technological equipment, as characterized by the entire EQ family of Mercedes. The MBX multimedia system has an intelligent assistant and is completed with two digital screens of 10.25 inches. The safety level comes from standard automatic emergency braking with the pedestrian detector and vehicles and involuntary lane change assistant.

Among the optional equipment, it is worth highlighting the crossed traffic notice by going back or turning at intersections, the alert when lowering the car if another vehicle is approaching, a bicycle or a pedestrian, among many others.

Defects 1: trunk, less than GLB

Even though the star's brand has worked very well in the EQB space, you can not do miracles. The version for five passengers, the most spacious, homologously a 495-liter trunk capacity, while if we choose the seven-seater configuration, the capacity is reduced to 465 liters.

Compared with GLB, the difference is remarkable since it offers a minimum volume of 570 liters and a maximum of 760 liters in the five-seater version, a minimum capacity of 500 liters, and a maximum of 640 liters with the seven-seat configuration. However, EQB also allows you to move the seats of the second final, winning 190 additional liters.

Default 2: Only one battery level

At the moment, the Mercedes EQB will be available with a single 66.5 kWh battery that offers the same consumption both in the 225 HP version and in the 292 cv. That means that the WLTP autonomy is 419 kilometers in both cases. It stays below the Tesla Model, which is worth 480 kilometers in the Performance version and 505 kilometers in the Long Range variant, without being a bad figure.

The brand has spoken of a version with an extended autonomy but has not specified data. We will have to wait a few months until we know more details on that battery or the least powerful version, EQB 260, which could equip the same 66.5 kWh battery and homologate a higher autonomy.
