A new compact crossover on electric Mercedes-Benz EQB undergoing road tests in Sweden.
About this reports portal Motor1. About two months ago appeared the first information about the crossover, which will join the line of electric models of the family of EQ. The vehicle received the designation of Mercedes-Benz EQB. The novelty is passing the road test on the winter roads of Sweden, where he was in the lenses of fotospornos.
Electric car built on the model of GLB and has minor changes in appearance, due to its “ecological identity.” In particular, he will have a different design front with a decorative “deaf” trim and different bumper. Back disappeared the exhaust pipe, and the headlights with their own pattern to distinguish the new product from its counterparts with internal combustion engines.
It is anticipated that EQB will have at its disposal the electrical power unit of the two electric motors with total capacity of 200 kW (272 HP) and torque of 499 Nm. With the basic version of the battery capacity of 60 kWh, the compact crossover will be able to overcome on a single charge of about 500 km.
In addition, customers will be offered a version with a battery of greater capacity and extended range. Presumably the new electric crossover will be presented in the second half of next year, and the sale will begin no earlier than 2021.
