Mercedes EQB

Peter Sigal, Automotive News Europe »

The EQB – essentially a battery-powered of the combustion-engine GLB — was unveiled at the Shanghai auto show in April. It is part of Mercedes’ EQ full-electric range, which also includes a sibling model, the EQA compact crossover; the EQS luxury sedan (launched this year), the EQE large sedan and the EQC midsize sedan.

Mercedes has not released prices for the EQB. The GLB starts at about 40,000 euros ($46,000) in Germany, with the top AMG four-wheel-drive model at 57,000 euros.

The EQB comes standard with five seats, with an optional third row that is intended for smaller passengers, up to 1.65 meters, Mercedes says. The second row can also move forward by up to 140 mm to give more space for third-row passengers.

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.
