The Mercedes-Benz EQB electric SUV has been spied ahead of its launch in India in the next few weeks. The EQB is set to launch in India by November end and follows the launch of the EQS sedan. The EQB too should be assembled locally in India, rounding off Mercedes-Benz's three EV launches for 2022.

The spy images show that the Mercedes EQB will quite clearly be very similar to the international-spec model. There is a more aerodynamically efficient front end with the blanked out grille, new headlamps with blue highlights and revised bumpers while at the rear there are the full-width LED taillamps. The numberplate has now moved to the new rear bumpers while there are aero-optimised wheels.

On the inside, the Mercedes-Benz EQB's dash is largely a carryover from the GLB. So you get the same free-standing twin 10.25-inch display and the turbine-style vents with the slim aluminium switchgear. Added to the EQB is a backlit trim piece on the passenger side with spiral detailing, rose-gold vent highlights while the MBUX instrumentation features unique Mercedes-EQ graphics. The third row can accommodate children or adults of up to 5' 4" height. Wheelbase is 2,829mm.

Mercedes EQB range, battery, performance

The Mercedes-EQ EQB is slated to come to India in its EQB 300 4Matic guise. This version comes in a dual motor set-up and puts out 228PS and 390 Nm. Powering this is a battery with 66.5 kWh of usable capacity which gives this version of the EQB a range of about 411 km as per the NEDC cycle.
