Mercedes EQ B Model

Mercedes-Benz EQB Crossover

In the previous years or we have seen a resurgence from the Mercedes-Benz brand. Amid the shuffling of brand and model line nomenclature, the most interesting development comes in the form of the Mercedes-Benz EQ all-electric lineup. The EQ models consist of hatchbacks, sedans, and crossovers showcasing a younger, differentiated design language and packing the latest in electric vehicle (EV) technology.

The EQ sub-brand is a classic case of an established car maker now trying to reassert itself in the face of what is probably the biggest disruption ever seen in the car industry worldwide. The shift to electric power is happening faster than expected and the technology itself is taking massive strides very quickly. So it isn't surprising that this EQ brand from Mercedes-Benz is setting itself up to jump right in at the thick end of the electric car market and have all its bases covered.

At this point, very little is known about the upcoming EQB. But its test mule has been spotted several times in Spain. It is rumored that design wise. The company is doing rounds in test mule form but in makeshift A class hatchback bodies. The EQB will be close to the edgy GLB, though featuring the new EQ grille and rear as seen at the EQC. The EQB’s actual body is expected to be that of a compact crossover.

The only Compact EV confirmed by Mercedes is the EQA electric hatchback due to be released in 2019. The concept for the EQA was rolled out at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show. The first Mercedes from Daimler’s EQ sub-brand for electric hatch may not happen due to crossovers being more favorable in the US. The brand may, however, end up producing EQB to satisfy buyers looking to buy a compact from Mercedes.

It is expected that EQB will be equipped with:

• 150kwh standard dual electric motors (200kw and 250kw will be available later)
• 650kg battery pack between the axles
• Minimum of 400km (250miles of range)
• 60kwh standard battery packs(up to 110kwh in top versions)

The initial details include convenient charging system. The concept car can be charged through induction, wall box or the normal sockets and is also ready for rapid charging. At a rapid charging station, the vehicle can be charged enough in less than 10 minutes to cover a range of 100km. the vision is to put up public charging stations whereby the clients can easily charge and pay for the services at different charging stations. Scalable batteries are fitted enabling the system output to increase up to over 200kw. This would increase the vehicles range considerably.

The exterior of the hatchback is purely designed with a clean modern character with attractive contours giving it a supreme sporty design. The attention to details accurately emphasizes the surface to a degree of exclusivity. The concept Mercedes EQA has the potential to usher in a new design Era.

The manufacturers incorporated a black panel with the integrated LED matrix at the front, flowing beautifully from the bonnet. The black panel is a virtual radiator grille which changes in appearances completely. The vehicle is customized to show the surrounding world according to the driver program the driver has selected. This is possible through the animated design in the virtual grille, unlike the conventional radiator grille.

Mercedes Benz has opted for innovative lights technology. The concept is fitted with spiral-shaped light signet underlining the electric concept.
