(Translated from German)
Production of the all-electric Mercedes EQB has started at the Hungarian Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét. The EQB, which was presented in April, is manufactured there for world markets – only the China-specific version is being built by the joint venture BBAC in Beijing.
The EQB is an electric SUV with up to seven seats. At 4.68 meters in length, the angular EQB is only eight centimeters shorter than the EQC, but a full 22 centimeters longer than the EQA. Technically, the EQB is more closely related to the EQA, both are based on the compact car platform from Mercedes, while the EQC is known to be based on the GLC combustion engine model and thus uses the larger platform for rear-wheel drives.
