Mercedes-Benz EQB makes Europe debut, ready to go global

  • Mercedes-Benz EQB will come in two variants, EQB 300 and EQB 350.

  • Mercedes-Benz EQB will be launched in Europe and China by end of this year and in the US in 2022.

Mercedes-Benz might be the shining star of the EV segment at this year's IAA Auto Show as the automaker is introducing four new electric vehicles. Adding to this is the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB that is making its European debut. After making its initial debut in April, this electric vehicle now will be launched in the United States next year in two trims – EQB 300 and EQB 350.

Mercedes-Benz plans to launch the EQB in Europe and China by end of this year.

The Mercedes-Benz EQB EV is an all-electric compact SUV that will feature seven seats. The automaker has also provided enough space to fit child seats at the third row that has two seats. The company said that it has provided features that will ensure the safety of the passengers. “Extensive safety features include retractable head restraints, seat belts with belt tensioners and force limiters on all outer seats and a side window bag that also covers passengers in the third row," said the automaker.

Mercedes-Benz has kept the interiors of the electric SUV as robust as its exterior. With rose-gold accents over various elements such as air vents and a backlit trim piece will provide the EV with its character, said the brand. It will feature a standard 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster and infotainment display equipped with augmented-reality navigation. The system will be powered by the latest iteration of MBUX software.
