New Mercedes EQB



Introduction

Mercedes will launch 10 new electric cars over the next two years under the EQ family umbrella, one of which is the EQB; an electric version of the brand’s GLB compact SUV. The EQB will fit into Mercedes’ electric range between the EQA and EQC when it arrives in 2021 as a subcompact luxury crossover SUV.

Performance

A range of around 300 miles and power outputs from 200bhp - 355bhp are expected from the EQB, as well as 500Nm of torque if it is to follow suit of its EQA sibling. If compatible with the latest public fast chargers, the EQB should be able to reach 80% charge from empty in roughly 30 minutes. However, information regarding its performance has not yet been revealed by Mercedes.

Design

The EQB has been spotted in Sweden testing under winter conditions and appears to have similar boxy styling to that of the GLB, as expected. However, the EQB will also more than likely feature signature EQ exterior styling tweaks much like the EQA and EQC, such as slim headlights, a refreshed radiator grille and aerodynamically efficient front bumper. This is all hidden under camouflage wraps for now, though.


Inside, we expect the EQB will share most of its design with the GLB; a simple, elegant interior with infotainment displays and premium upholstery. The existing GLB offers seating for up to seven people, but the presence of a battery pack and electric motors means it’s uncertain whether the EQB will follow suit of its sibling in this way.

EQB Release Date

Mercedes-Benz is yet to confirm the release date of the Mercedes EQB however we expect the model to go on sale in 2021 with customer deliveries starting mid/late 2021.
