The 2022 all-electric Mercedes-Benz EQB has a lot to offer… but Roman wants more.
One of the advantages of being all-electric is that the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB, despite its footprint, can accommodate up to seven people. There is no need to make room for things like a petrol tank or an engine/transmission combination. Unfortunately for Roman, as this IS is based on the production cap, it has a hood and requires space for components. You see, he likes ‘f-runks’ or front trunks, as some other EVs offer.
That aside, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB was set up to become one of the more popular EVs they sell in this country. It ticks all the right boxes for US consumers thinking about EVs. Simply put, it’s a luxury SUV with a big battery – and that’s what they want. This 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB is the 350 with twin engine. It makes a combined 288 horsepower and 324 lb-ft of torque. The EQB 300 4MATIC delivers 225 hp.
Roman’s tester appears to have a range of about 200 miles
The EQB is equipped with a high energy density lithium-ion battery. It has a maximum voltage of 420V. With a nominal capacity of approximately 190 Ah, it has a usable energy content of 66.5 kWh. With a charging speed of 100 kW, it’s not the fastest, but it’s still decent.
The model he’s testing doesn’t come with the third row, but it’s an option.
“With the new EQB, we have designed an iconic electric SUV that takes the box shapes of our off-roaders and projects them into the future. The striking silhouette is combined with futuristic elements such as the black front panel to create the extraordinary look of this vehicle.”
Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of the Daimler Group.
According to the automaker, the 2022 EQB 300 4MATIC starts from $54,500. A cheaper front-wheel drive (FWD) option will come later. In addition, a long-range version is also planned. Production starts this fall.
