After the launch of the EQS 53 AMG and EQS 580, Mercedes-Benz India are gearing up to launch the EQB. We expect Mercedes-Benz to launch the EQB in November 2022. It will go up against the likes of the Volvo XC40 Recharge and Kia EV6.

The EQB will come with 7 seats and sit below the EQC in the EQ lineup of electric sedans and SUVs. Mercedes considered the GLB for the Indian market a couple of years ago but the German carmaker is now betting big on green mobility with its electric vehicle range as they plan to go all-electric by 2030.

The Mercedes EQB gets an enclosed grille flanked by connected headlights. Towards the side, the EQB resembles the GLB whereas its rear profile gets connected LED tail lights, giving it a unique identity. The inside of the EQB is similar to that of the GLB SUV. The dashboard comes with a twin-screen setup — like in all new Mercedes models. However, the EQB comes with blue ambient lighting for the dashboard, AC vents and door cards.
