EQB Moves Toward Updates
Our eagle-eyed spy photographers discovered a camouflaged Mercedes EQB as they peered out and were taken aback to discover that the German automobile manufacturer is already prepping to give the crossover a revamp. The all-electric parallel of the GLB and seven-seat sibling of the EQA was launched not long ago, however it seems that it will be issued a mild facelift for the 2024 model – despite limited alterations on the exterior, the interior should boast some meaningful aspects.
Studying the spy photos closely, it appears that the outside alterations will comprise a slightly tweaked bumper layout and maybe a few shifts to the grille. That is presumably a new wholly enclosed grille to conform the styling of the EQB with the bigger EQE and EQS models.
Whilst these pre-production versions still possess the headlights from the prevailing model, as continuing creation proceeds we anticipate that to alter, as this is frequently a means employed by motor vehicle companies to indicate to everyone that it’s a more fresh kind. For those thinking about it, the back lighting present novel lateral styling.
As we move inside, the intriguing prospects continue. It appears that what comes with the facelifts of the A-, B-, and CLA-Class will be a new wheel. Plus, the centre console has been obscured, denoting that either Mercedes plans to switch it out for an advanced adaptation or wholly remove it.
Apart from that, the remainder of the vehicle’s interior design is seemingly sustained, featuring the 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster and the 10.25-inch infotainment display centrally located. Changing those would be premature since it would only cause them to lose their spot in being among the most top-notch in the business. It is expected by 2024 there will be an augmented rendition of the already exceptional MBUX infotainment system.
No announcement has been made regarding a revised drivetrain, but it’s probable that the 70.7 kWh battery capacity will be kept, as well as the dual-motor all-wheel drive facility found in the EQB 300 4Matic and the EQB 350 4Matic. It’s very likely that there will be small enhancements to the efficiency of these vehicles, with the EPA estimated ranges for the EQB 300 4Matic and EQB 350 4Matic believed to be 243 miles and 227 miles respectively.
