Mercedes-Benz India is good to go to grow its EV line-up with not one yet two new send-offs this year. Following the send off of the made-in-India EQS lead electric car, the brand will carry the all-electric EQB SUV to India in Q4 of 2022.
Dissimilar to the EQS, the EQB SUV is certainly not a conceived electric vehicle, yet depends on the ICE Mercedes GLB SUV which is sold abroad. The EQB is a seven-seater SUV that gets a couple of EQ-explicit updates, for example, a blanked-off front grille and full-width LED light bar at the back. The inside is likewise to a great extent like the ICE-controlled GLB. Universally, the EQB is presented in two conditions of tune – a 228hp, double engine 300 4Matic pretense and a higher-spec 292hp, double engine 350 4Matic pretense, yet Mercedes hasn’t yet affirmed which will be brought to India.
Mercedes-Benz India has affirmed it will send off its all-electric EQS vehicle around the happy season this year, and, as we’ve detailed previously, it will be privately collected. Additionally, the brand has now affirmed it will be the topspec EQS 580 4Matic that will be sent off. It utilizes a double engine set-up – one on every pivot – giving it all-wheel drive and a consolidated result of 523hp and 856Nm. Power is put away in a 107.8kWh (net) lithium-particle battery and that supplies the EQS 580 with a guaranteed scope of up to 770km on the WLTP test cycle. In India, the EQS is probably going to have an ARAI-asserted scope of roughly 750km.
The EQS for India will get the mark Hyperscreen infotainment unit as standard. A one-piece bended board extends across the width of the dashboard and houses three presentations – dials, infotainment and one for the front traveler. We have additionally discovered that the India-spec vehicle will ride on 19-inch wheels.
The EQS will be the primary EV to be gathered at the brand’s Chakan plant. Its conceived electric EVA skateboard stage is imparted to no current privately fabricated model, thus Mercedes is now during the time spent updating its creation lines to gather the vehicle, including introducing the complex Hyperscreen.
