Overview of the Mercedes-Benz EQB

The Mercedes EQB is currently the best electric car in the firm’s stable and there’s a lot to like about it. With seven seats, the comfort and refinement levels are high – and if you must lease a car with zero emissions, then shortlist this one.

Why choose a Mercedes-Benz EQB?

There are two models available in the Mercedes EQB range and they feature a 66.5kWh battery and two electric motors. This means the EQB has all-wheel drive with the 4Matic system.

Both models get torque of 370Nm and power of either 225 bhp to offer a sprint time of 7.7 seconds, or 288 bhp for a sprint of six seconds.

The EQB feels well-planted, and the motors deliver swift overtaking potential. There’s also a coasting mode which is ideal when on motorways, and the battery offers 257 miles of range. A longer-range version of the EQB is in the pipeline, though it won’t have all-wheel drive.

The battery is suitable for rapid recharging, and it can be topped up to 80% of its capacity in just 30 minutes.

Leasing a Mercedes-Benz EQB is an easy process, with there being a lot of equipment fitted as standard, including the firm’s dual 10.25-inch infotainment displays that appear as a very wide single screen. The menu for the system is easy-to-use, even when driving.

What to expect when you lease a Mercedes-Benz EQB

For anyone wanting to lease a seven-seat EV, then there’s not a wide range of choice but the Mercedes EQB – which is based on the GLB platform - is an SUV worth considering. And, as should be expected, the interior is an impressive and refined experience with a futuristic look. There’s definitely an upmarket feel to the whole creation.

Standard features include automatic climate control, artificial leather-trimmed seats, a powered tailgate and electrically adjustable heated front seats. The infotainment setup is smartphone compatible and safety features include lane keep assist, a reversing camera and speed limit assist.

The AMG Line for the EQB lease range offers 18-inch alloy wheels, exterior sports styling, tinted rear windows and rear and front LED lights. Opt for the impressive AMG Line Premium and drivers get to enjoy larger alloys, an upgraded stereo system, a panoramic sunroof and wireless smartphone charging. There are some options to consider and among them is the driver assistance pack that adds the Mercedes’ semi-autonomous driving assistance system.

This is also a practical EV to consider with a boot size of 465 litres with five seats in place, and with the rear seats folded flat, there are 1,710 litres available.

The EQB is also very safe battery-powered SUV that scored five stars when crash tested by Euro NCAP and drivers also get lane keeping assist and autonomous emergency braking as standard, with more protection on higher trim versions.

On the road, the Mercedes EQB is a stable car that offers lots of grip on corners, and winding country roads can be tackled with confidence. The suspension is well balanced and there’s good, accurate feedback for the steering. The car feels well assured and composed to be a refined and impressive vehicle.

Essentially, there’s a lot to like about the Mercedes EQB: it’s a well-designed and well-constructed SUV and the potential of seven-seats puts it firmly into a niche that many families will be interested in.
