The electrification of luxury takes another stride forward.
With the EQB, the Mercedes-EQ lineup welcomes an all-electric compact SUV that seats up to seven. It’s efficient, versatile, and accessible — the kind of vehicle you turn to when you’ve got plenty going on.
Let’s talk space. With a wheelbase of 111 inches, the GLB delivers more than its convenient, compact form would suggest. Twenty-three cubic feet of trunk capacity allow it to serve as a workhorse for transporting luggage, groceries, sporting equipment, and more. And when it’s time to get the whole family moving, two additional seats unfold to form the third row. In front, generous headroom of 41 inches caps off an elegant Widescreen Cockpit, accentuated by a large-body dashboard and aluminum-styled fittings.
Outside, the EQB’s black panel grille and continuous light strip at the front and rear signal its membership in the EQ family, even as its distinctive, sculpted form carves out a place entirely its own. With a low drag coefficient, that form is more than merely aesthetic: It’s designed in the service of performance.
The EQB delivers robust power, with more than 288 (215kW) horsepower in the 350 model. Even more impressive, however, is the way it manages that power. Using Navigation with Electric Intelligence, the EQB monitors navigation data, traffic signals, and information from vehicle sensors to conserve and recuperate energy wherever it can. It’s also meticulous when it comes to managing journey times, factoring charging stations, charging duration, weather, topography, and even your personal driving style into its estimates.
Look for the EQB coming late summer 2022.
