The bold and boxy look of the GLB-Class now gets a second life with the all-electric, all family-ready Mercedes-Benz EQB.

08 Sep 2021 | International News : Germany


Mercedes has unveiled the all-electric EQB, adding yet another car to its growing all-electric EQ lineup.

As with the GLB-Class, the EQB will offer seating for five as standard, however, the crossover can also be had optionally as a seven-seater. The two seats in the third row can be used by people up to 1.65m tall, and child seats can also be fitted there.

66.5kWh battery in the Mercedes EQB can be charged at a maximum of 100kW via direct current
Design-wise, the EQB interprets Mercedes-EQ's 'Progressive Luxury' in an edgy and particularly characterful way. At the front, the car features the characteristic Mercedes-EQ black panel grille with a central star, delivering a self-confident appearance.

And at the rear, the number plate has been moved to the bumper, allowing for a beautifully shaped tailgate.

Continuous light strips at the front and rear of the EQB also follow from the rest of the EQ range, while light-alloy wheels in a bi or tri-colour design, up to 20-inches in size work with studded roof rails give the crossover some rugged character.

The cabin of the EQB meanwhile, follows more closely to the GLB, with tubular elements in an aluminium look featuring on the handles in the doors, in the centre console, and in the dashboard on the passenger side.

High-spec variants will get rose gold-coloured elements on the air vents, seats and vehicle key
The driver here also faces a widescreen cockpit, with control and display via the Mercedes-Benz User Experience multimedia system.

The all-electric EQB will be launched in Europe as the EQB300 4Matic with 225bhp and 390Nm of peak torque, as well as a EQB350 4Matic with 288bhp and 520Nm of maximum torque.

Total range for both models is stated as 419km according to the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure cycle, despite both variants carrying a 66.5kWh net capacity battery. Further variants to meet specific customer requirements will follow, including a particularly long-range version.

A maximum direct current charging speed of 100kW will allow the battery to reach an 80% state-of-charge from 10% in just over 30 minutes.
