As part of Mercedes’ new lineup of electric vehicles, the EQB, based on the gasoline-powered GLB-class SUV, is among the first models of the new EQ electric sub-brand. This futuristic, all-electric compact SUV can seat up to seven and will be available in two models: the EQB300 and the EQB350 4Matic. The EQB300 has a 225-horsepower electric motor on the front wheels that produces 288 lb-ft of torque. The EQB350 takes it a step further with a dual-motor all-wheel drive system that produces 288 horsepower and 324 lb-ft of torque.
When it comes to tech, the new MBUX infotainment system in the EQB offers touchscreen, voice command, and steering wheel controls for audio, navigation, and other functions. The EQB also includes standard driver assistance features such as lane-keeping assist and automated emergency braking.
