The Mercedes EQB is possibly one of our most “marmite” vehicles. It is very likely that you will either love the design or hate it. When it comes to the technology inside, there is very little to dislike at all. In fact, there is a lot to love.
Read on as we take you on a journey into the Mercedes EQB world. Maybe this wonderful car is just what you have been looking for.
Is The Body Really So Divisive?
Perhaps I have jumped the gun a little by saying that the Mercedes EQB is a marmite vehicle. It does have a great appeal to it and more people will definitely like it than not. The shape is quite boxy, but it isn’t too far removed from the styling of a Land Rover. In fact, the car has been described as the electric version of the G-Wagon, which we know is a very popular and versatile car.
The height and length of the roof means that there will be a lot of room inside the vehicle, including the boot. This can only be a good thing in my opinion.
The grille is very familiar to anyone who knows the EQ range. A really nice black frontage where you would previously have seen the air inlets, decorated with a sizable Mercedes badge and two classy looking horizontal stripes to accent it. The rear of the vehicle also has a lovely design language. Stunning patterning along the base of the boot is quite attractive. The wheels too are something a little different from what we are used to. There is an almost Japanese art style to the alloys that catches the eye.
Take a Step Inside the Mercedes EQB World
When you get inside the Mercedes EQB you can see that this is a pretty special and amazing vehicle. For a start, it’s one of the very few 7-seater cars on the market, which automatically gives the EQB extra brownie points for usefulness. As with the other cars in the Mercedes EQ range, the occupants are blessed with a really comfortable passenger experience. The seats let you melt into them and they offer great support.
The boot, as previously touched upon, is big. And by this, we mean really big. When you have the rear two seats down, so are in five seat mode, you get a whopping 465 litres of boot space. When all the rear seats are folded flat, you get an incredible 1,320 litres of space!
Mercedes have really blown our minds with the technology in their latest range of vehicles. The Mercedes EQB is certainly no different. For a start, the interior lighting colour schemes are spectacular. Choose what colour you want and the interior will light up in various places with that colour scheme. I found this to be both incredibly fun and soothing to my EQB driving experience.
I, for one, absolutely love the infotainment technology in the Mercedes EQ range. The EQB infotainment screens stretch along the really nicely designed dashboard. With the mood lighting set, this dashboard looks like something from a futuristic sci-fi film.
As well as looking pretty amazing, the infotainment screens are packed with great applications that are easy to navigate and easy to use. The screen is also very responsive, which is always great to know. Crystal clear screens make the parking cameras a joy.
A Grand Performance
The Mercedes EQB is a big vehicle and therefore needs a good size battery to power it. Here you will find a 66.5kWh battery under the car. This gives you a real world range of at least 210 miles, though more range is easily achievable with careful driving, particularly in good weather.
A maximum speed of 99mph can be reached in the EQB. This, obviously, is more than you will need on a British road. The torque is incredible for a big vehicle. The car can incredibly go from 0-62mph in as little as 6.2 seconds. You will definitely feel the pull when you put your foot down on the accelerator pedal.
The Mercedes EQB is a fantastic car to drive. It is also extremely practical and comes with a first-rate performance and range of applications. You can hire the Mercedes EQB from EVision now. Try it. You might like it.
