Mercedes-EQ has unveiled the EQB all electric compact SUV.

Available as a seven-seater, the new EQB offers space for many family constellations and a wide variety of transport needs.

2,829mm wheelbase allows the EQB to offer generous levels of interior space
The EQB's third row of will offer two additional individual seats, allowing those up to a height of 1.65m a comfortable amount of space. The car offers a boot space of 495 to 1,710 or 465 to 1,620 litres (figures for five- and seven-seaters respectively).

Extensive safety features include extractable head restraints, seat belts with belt tensioners and force limiters on all outer seats and a side window airbag that also covers passengers in the third row. A total of up to four child seats can be fitted in rows two and three, plus one more in the front passenger seat. To increase luggage space, the third-row seats can be lowered flush into the load floor.

The EQB interprets Mercedes-EQ's 'Progressive Luxury' design philosophy in an edgy and characterful way. The typical Mercedes-EQ black panel grille with central star features at the front, alongside the distinctive continuous light strip.

A horizontal fibre-optic strip connects the daytime running lights of the full-LED headlamps, ensuring a high level of recognisability both in daylight and at night. Blue colour highlights within the headlamp reinforce the signature Mercedes-EQ appearance.

From the flank, the car is clad in protective elements. This couples with a muscular and sensuously modelled vehicle for increased road presence. Outwardly positioned wheels give the EQB a powerful character and confident stance on the road. Exclusive to this model are light-alloy wheels in a bi- or tri-colour design, up to 20-inches in size, in some cases with rose gold-coloured or blue decorative trim.

At the rear, LED tail lamps merge seamlessly into the tapered LED light strip. This underlines the horizontal sense of width of the EQB in the rear view. In addition, the number plate is placed on the bumper, which allows for a beautifully sculpted tailgate. The studded roof rails underline the high utility value of the new EQB.

In the cabin, the large body of the dashboard has a cut-out in the driver and passenger area. The driver faces a Widescreen Cockpit, with control and display via the Mercedes-Benz User Experience. The robust character of the interior is underlined by tubular elements in an aluminium look. They sit as handles in the doors, in the centre console and in the instrument panel on the passenger side.

Depending on the design and equipment line, a spectacular backlit trim piece and rose gold-coloured decorative elements on the air vents, seats and vehicle key provide clues to the electric character in the interior of the EQB. The instruments, with their electric car-specific displays, pick up on the same colour scheme with rose gold-coloured and blue highlights.

The EQB can be charged via direct current at speeds of up to 100kW
The EQB can be conveniently charged at up to 11kW with alternating current using its onboard charger. Direct charging meanwhile, will allow the battery to be topped up at speeds of up to 100kW The charging time is then just over 30 minutes from 10% to 80% state-of-charge.

The market launch on the EQB in China is scheduled for later this year. After Europe, the international version of the EQB, produced in Kecskemet, Hungary, will be launched at the end of 2021, followed by the U.S.A market launch in 2022.
