Mercedes is finally releasing pricing for the newest member of its growing EQ family, an electric vehicle that can be used both on-road and off. The $56K price tag may seem high considering its only one size but there are plenty of other features included in this package such as leather seats with heating functions or a panoramic sunroof which will make up some ground when compared to larger models from competitors who don't offer these options!
What’s not to love about this car? The EQB shares the same chassis and design with its more expensive counterpart GLB, but instead of four-cylinder engines, you'll have two versions available when it goes on sale. That sub-$57K starting price gets your choice between a sweet-sounding 225hp electric motor or an even more powerful one that outputs 300 HP! You can get either trim level as well: Exclusive at exactly what we mentioned above or Pinnacle for $59350.
The EQB 350 has a base trim level of $60,350. It features the same 66.5 kWh battery but with different powertrain options that can be upgraded to 288hp and 324 lb.-ft torque from its dual motors. It can be upgraded to Pinnacle for an additional $61K. This upgrade includes more power and features such as a panoramic roof, a surround-view monitoring system with a high-end sound package from Burmester which is not available on other trims
The inside of the EQB is well-equipped with all your standard features. You get 10 inches worth of touch screen in this car which has become increasingly common for EVs and large infotainment screens as well! There are also driver safety assistance systems, a nav system that can calculate an efficient route based on how many people will be riding along.
For now, there are no range figures available for the U.S version of EQB but if its European counterpart is any indication don't expect much - Car And Driver briefly drove this car back in April and found it had an estimated 260 miles on offer using a 66kWh battery (EPA). It will go on the sale this summer!
