In the ever-evolving landscape of electric vehicles, the 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQB emerges as a refreshing update to its predecessor. The EQB made its debut in 2022, and the fact that Mercedes-Benz is already introducing enhancements speaks volumes about the automaker’s commitment to staying at the forefront of electric mobility.

Externally, the EQB receives a subtle yet impactful facelift. A new grille design, now adorned with the signature Mercedes-EQ black panel studded with stars, is a visual statement. The choice between black or chrome stars offers a touch of personalization. The front bumper has been reimagined to accentuate the vehicle’s width, enhancing its commanding presence on the road. At the rear, Mercedes has reworked the taillights within the full-width assembly, resulting in a fresh aesthetic. The introduction of two new exterior colors, Starling Blue and Cirrus Silver, adds to the EQB’s visual appeal.

Inside the cabin, Mercedes elevates the tech game. The standard 10.25-inch touchscreen display, powered by the Zero Layer MBUX software, is a significant addition. It brings wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, diverse display modes, an intelligent voice assistant, and the ability to unlock additional features through over-the-air updates. Notably, Mercedes offers two “Sound Experiences” as standard but allows customers to access two more through the Mercedes Me store.

Sound enthusiasts will appreciate the integration of Dolby Atmos technology into the optional Burmester audio system, promising a more authentic and precise auditory experience. The introduction of “Plug & Charge” capability simplifies the charging process, eliminating the need for cards or apps on select chargers. Furthermore, a new range monitoring function empowers drivers to monitor and manage their battery usage, potentially increasing the vehicle’s range. Mercedes also touts improvements in driver assistance systems, incorporating a new mono multi-purpose camera and an updated backup camera for enhanced safety.

Despite these updates, the heart of the EQB remains unchanged in terms of powertrain options. Customers can still choose between the front-wheel-drive EQB 250+ and the two all-wheel-drive variants, the EQB 300 4Matic and the potent EQB 350 4Matic. With a maximum DC fast charging speed of 100 kW, it’s poised to cater to the convenience-focused needs of electric vehicle users. While official EPA range ratings are pending, expectations point toward figures similar to the existing model’s 250-mile maximum range for the EQB 250+. For those considering the optional third row, the EQB maintains its flexibility to transform into a seven-seater.
