The Daimler-Benz range of electric vehicles has just been completed in Spain with the arrival of the new Mercedes EQB, a model that stands out for its interior capable of accommodating up to seven passengers. Aesthetically it is very similar to the GLB from which it derives, although with a specific front.
In this first stage of launch, the Mercedes EQB lands in its versions “300” with 228 hp and “350” with 299 hp. Both include the all-wheel drive system and automatic transmission, as well as a battery with 66.5 kWh of capacity that are used to travel about 420 km according to the WLTP cycle.
A little later but with no date defined yet, an interesting proposal with a single axle drive will be added that will take the name EQB 250. It will have 190 hp of power and could be enough for a large majority of users being also notably cheaper.
As standard for Spain, all EQBs have LED headlights, cruise control with limiter, light alloy wheels, configurable digital instrumentation, push button start, driving mode selector, dual automatic climate control and parking sensors.
Also at no extra cost they have the Electric tailgate, interior LED pack, fatigue detector, rain sensor, SmartBeam, MBUX integrated navigation system, DAB radio, bluetooth, involuntary lane alert, roof bars, exterior chrome pack, etc.
The recommended prices are as follows:
- EQB 300 4Matic 228 CV € 58,000
- EQB 350 4Matic 299 CV € 60,225
