Details of Mercedes seven seat electric EQB unveiled


Mercedes has unveiled details of its electric EQB, a seven-seat SUV set to arrive in 2022.

It will be offered with front- and all-wheel-drive options and a choice of battery capacities. For the EQB 350 4Matic, a range of 260 miles from a 66kWh battery is reported.

When charging with a maximum power of up to 100 kW, it takes just over 30 minutes from 10-80 per cent charge.

Via Mercedes me Charge, EQB drivers will be able to use a network that currently comprises more than 500,000 AC and DC charging stations across 31 countries. Mercedes me Charge allows Mercedes-EQ customers convenient use of the charging stations of various providers, while they also benefit from an integrated payment function with simple billing processes.

“With the all new EQB we have created an iconic electric SUV that takes the heritage of our boxy off-road vehicles and transforms this into the future. We combine the significant boxy silhouette with futuristic elements such as the black-panel front to create the extraordinary look of the vehicle”, says Gorden Wagener, chief design officer of Daimler Group.

UK pricing and specification will be announced towards the end of the year, with first deliveries expected to be shortly after it goes on sale.
