Luxury automaker Mercedes-Benz has introduced an electric sport utility vehicle (SUV), the EQB 350, in India.

according to LiveMint In the report, the electric SUV has been launched with a starting price of Rs 77.50 (ex-showroom). The new model EQB 350 replaces the previous model EQB 300 4Matic, which was launched in December 2022, with a starting price of Rs 74.50 (ex-showroom).

While the EQB 350 comes with significant performance improvements, it retains the same 66.5 kWh battery pack as its predecessor. The new electric SUV comes with 288 hp compared to 225 hp previously, and torque of 520 Nm from 390 Nm.

The report added that although the updated EQB 350 is visually similar to its predecessor, it still has some minor changes that have been incorporated. It also states that there are no major cosmetic changes to the appearance of the new electric SUV.

However, the automaker introduced a new set of 18-inch light-alloy wheels, specifically designed to improve aerodynamic efficiency. The new SUV retains its black faux grille and features LED headlights with adaptive high beam assist. It also includes LED tail lights with an accompanying LED strip, roof rails, and backlit turn indicators.

Speaking of interiors, the report said the new EQB 350 maintains a similar design aesthetic. It features a spacious center console that houses two 10.25-inch screens for the dashboard and infotainment system. The infotainment system uses MBUX, which is the company’s signature. The cabin offers additional luxury touches such as rose gold accents, two-tone seats, a rearview camera, and a power tailgate.

The all-new electric SUV can go from 10 to 80 battery percentage in 32 minutes, using a 100kW DC charger, while using an 11kW wall charger requires 6.25 hours. Despite the increase in power, the EQB’s estimated driving range remained unchanged at 423 km (WLTP).
