Mercedes-Benz EQB Spied Testing: 100-kWh Battery Capacity Rumored
Mercedes-Benz EQB test mule spotted out in the wild.
Mercedes-Benz EQC was already unveiled in its production version, while other EQ models are under development. But recently. test mules of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz EQB were spied in Spain. There’s an EQA in concept version, too.
The all-electric EQB will be a successor to the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive, of which production came to an end a year ago. The EQB (and EQA) are to be built on the EVA II platform (unlike EVA I for the EQC).
“Design-wise the EQB will be close to the edgy GLB, though featuring the new EQ grille and rear as seen at the EQC. While the combustion-engine GLB will be available from 35.000 Euros, the all-electric EQB will wear price tags with 50.000 Euros or more.”
Daimler already registered many names for the various versions of EQB: EQB 200, EQB 250, EQB 260, EQB 300, EQB 320, EQB 350 and EQB 360.
It’s expected that EQB will be equipped with 60-110 kWh battery packs and 150-250 kW electric motors.
