Introducing 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB Electric SUV https://youtu.be/szbHdGxCKZo

The EQB was unveiled in China, and it will be launched there first as a fully loaded model with a standard AMG Line look, all-wheel drive, and two motors that make a combined 288 horsepower. Europe will get both the EQB350 4Matic with around 268 horsepower and the front-wheel-drive EQB250 with 221 horsepower; there will also be a midlevel version designed as a long-range model. Both China and Europe will see the EQB at dealers within the 2021 calendar year.

The U.S. will have to wait until 2022, and the company is mum about the possible powertrain options. "Stay tuned for more details in the coming months," we are advised.

What we can deduce from our experience with the EQA is that even the least powerful versions of the EQB will come in at around 4500 pounds, which we hope won't translate into plodding, cumbersome handling characteristics, even if that would feel a bit less out of place in a people hauler like the EQB than in a compact hatch like the EQA. There will be no true AMG version, unlike on the EQS and the EQE. However, we'll suspend judgment until we can drive it.
Once it arrives on U.S. shores in mid-2022 as a 2023 model, expect pricing to begin in the $40,000 range for the entry-level version. That model's performance, despite the EQB250 moniker, can be expected to fall way short of the GLB250, which starts at $39,100. Unlike the EQS, the EQB will be no game changer. But it could be a fitting second or third car to share the garage with Daimler's new king of EVs, the EQS sedan
