The Mercedes-Benz EQB electric SUV will be powered by a 66.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Mercedes says that the EQB will offer a range of over 400 kms on a single charge.
The Mercedes EQB comes in two trims in the global market. The first is the all-wheel drive EQB 300 trim, which comes with a power output of 225hp and peak torque of 390 Nm.
The second trim is the EQB 350, which churns out 288hp of power and 521 Nm of peak torque. Mercedes has also launched an AMG version of the EQB in China. It is not yet clear whether all the three trims will come to India.
The design of the EQB electric SUV is similar to that of a Mercedes SUV. To give it a special design, a long light strip will have been given at the front and back.
Like the rest of the company's electric car, it will also get a black panel grille, in the middle of which will be the Mercedes logo. 20-inch alloy wheels will be given in the compact SUV.
Interior features include a 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster and infotainment display with augmented reality navigation.
