This month, Mercedes-Benz confirmed the arrival of the EQB SUEV on American shores for the 2022 model year. The model got an exposure boot at the Munich Motor Show, where Mercedes got a little more specific about its feature set and launch lineup.
The AWD EQB will initially be offered in 300 and 350 variants, with the EQB 350 milking its twin-motor powertrain for 288 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque; the variant’s torque rating represents a boost of a full third over the EQB’s 288 lbs-ft, making it the easy choice for buyers looking to purchase a green getaway rig with ample towing power for broad recreational use cases. The EQB 300 gets 225 HP out of the model’s powertrain setup.
The EQB 300 and 350 are currently rated with a 260-mile range, estimated according to the WLTP standard. The mid-tier models are designed to be green daily drivers for families, and have an electronically limited top speed of 100 MPH, and seating for up to 7 passengers. Mercedes will reveal more about pricing, tech and creature comforts in a few months.
