This October, Mercedes began serial manufacturing of the EQB. The Mercedes-EQ family's newest electric vehicle is the EQB: a battery-powered variant of the GLB small SUV. Mercedes now offers two compact electric SUVs, in addition to the EQA, which will be available in early 2021.
The Mercedes EQB electric car is manufactured in Kecskemet, Hungary. Mercedes claimed that the model is solely shipped from there to the rest of the globe, except for China. With the introduction of the Stromer, the Kecskemét facility will manufacture all sorts of engines. By 2022, Mercedes production will be CO2-neutral.
Still, it is unknown when the EQB will be delivered throughout Europe. The car, too, cannot be adjusted here. So yet, Mercedes has only officially introduced the EQB in the version produced in and for China. Customers in Europe should be able to pick from various Mercedes electric vehicles with front-wheel and all-wheel drive and varying power levels, some of which exceed 200 kW (272 hp). The battery's practical capacity will initially be 66.5 kWh; subsequently, a particularly long-range variant will be available. Yet, the range has not been specified in detail.
The Mercedes EQB is 4684 mm long, 1834 mm wide, and 1667 mm high. It is closely connected to two models: the EQA (EQB shares drive technology) and the Mercedes GLB SUV with classic drive (EQB uses the extended wheelbase, the flexible interior, and the optional third row of seats). The trunk has a loading volume of 495 to 1710 liters or 465 to 1620 liters (5- or 7-seater).
Mercedes will release further technical information on the EQB and pricing in Europe at a later date. For comparison, the slightly smaller Mercedes EQA with a range of 426 kilometers (WLTP) has a price of 47,000 euros.
