The all-electric Mercedes-Benz EQB compact SUV will have seven seats as standard in the UK.
The European version will be launched in 2021 with an electric range of 287 miles for the EQB 350 4MATIC.
The EQB range will include several models with front-wheel and all-wheel drive, various power ratings – some of which will exceed 200 kW – plus batteries with usable capacities starting from 66.5 kWh. A long-range version is also planned.
At home or at public charging stations, the EQB can be charged at up to 11 kW with alternating current (AC) using the onboard charger.
The EQB can rapid charge at up to 100 kW when the charging time is just over 30 minutes from 10-80 percent.
Via Mercedes me Charge, EQB drivers will be able to use what is currently the largest charging network in the world: this 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.
There will be four new all-electric models from Mercedes in 2021: the EQA, the EQB, the electric business saloon EQE and the EQS.
Mercedes-Benz plug-in hybrids currently consisting of more than 20 model variants, with new electrified derivatives of the C-Class and the S-Class.
