Here's some more information the team at Mercedes-Benz of Temecula has put together about the 2024 EQB.
Exterior and Trim Levels
The EQB is available in three models: the EQB 250+, EQB 300 4MATIC, and EQB 350 4MATIC. With all three versions, you can select Premium, Exclusive, or Pinnacle trim levels.

You can add 19- or 20-inch wheels, and with the Exclusive trim, there's also a hands-free power liftgate. The Pinnacle trim has a tilting, sliding panoramic sunroof, and the EQB 300 4MATIC also has heated side mirrors. You can choose Polar White, Night Black, Digital White metallic, Cosmos Black metallic, Iridium Silver metallic, Denim Blue metallic, Rose Gold metallic, Mountain Grey metallic, Starling Blue, Cirrus Silver, and MANUFAKTUR Patagonia Red metallic exterior colors.
Power and Performance
The EQB 250+ uses an advanced 138-kW asynchronous electric motor that provides 188 horsepower and 284 lb-ft of torque. It has front-wheel drive and an independent suspension, and it can tow up to 3,086 pounds.
You can use paddles on the steering wheel to change the amount of energy recuperated by deceleration and braking, and normal, increased, and none modes are available. The increased mode allows one-pedal driving, and the none mode lets you coast when you don't use the accelerator. The intelligent ECO Assist system optimizes the amount of energy recovery to the situation. It also provides you with prompts about speed limit changes, upcoming intersections, and more.
The EQB 300 4MATIC generates 225 horsepower, and the EQB 350 4MATIC utilizes its two electric motors to offer 288 horsepower. The 300 4MATIC and the 350 4MATIC come with all-wheel drive, and they can tow up to 3,748 pounds.
The EQB uses a single-speed automatic transmission and a 66.5-kWh battery that's underneath the cargo floor. The EQB 250+ has a 250-mile range, and the 300 4MATIC can travel 243 miles. The more powerful 350 4MATIC gets 227 miles of range per charge. You can recharge any 2024 EQB model at home with a Level 2 connection or at a public DC fast-charging station. According to Mercedes-Benz, you can charge the EQB from 10% to 80% in around half an hour with a DC station.
Interior and Technology
The interiors of the 2024 EQB models have new steering wheels with controls on the spokes. The EQB has plenty of space for a compact SUV and advanced technology, including an updated infotainment system. This two-row SUV can carry five people, while optional three-row versions can carry seven people. The EQB has soft leather upholstery, chrome and rose gold interior accents, and an advanced, high-tech look. The dashboard on the passenger side has a backlit pattern of tiny Mercedes-Benz stars.
The battery pack takes up about 5 cubic feet of cargo space, making the gas GLB-class more spacious. The EQB still has up to 61.8 cubic feet for cargo. You'll also get power front seats with memory settings, folding second-row seats, dual-zone climate control, a 10.25-inch touch screen, a 10.25-inch driver information screen, and 64-color ambient LED lighting.
Mercedes-Benz's new MB.OS operating system will replace the MBUX system for 2025 models. Mercedes-Benz developed the new system, and it provides an elevated driving experience through advances in safety, infotainment, and automated driving. To create the MB.OS, Mercedes-Benz partnered with NVIDIA for the company's data, software, and artificial intelligence expertise. NVIDIA builds microchips for automated driving technology as well.
Luminar makes Light Detection and Ranging, or LiDAR sensors for Mercedes-Benz that scan the road, and Google is developing a new navigation system that can help you find electric vehicle charging stations. The infotainment system will provide access to apps such as Zoom and TikTok and games such as Angry Birds. Mercedes-Benz will provide regular wireless updates for MB.OS.
Mercedes-Benz vehicles already have Level 2 automated driving equipment and capability. These features include adaptive cruise control and lane-centering systems that help reduce driver fatigue, while the voice recognition system responds whenever you say the words "Hey, Mercedes."
Options include heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display, wireless charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a 12-speaker Burmester sound system with a 590-watt amplifier.
The EQB comes with a variety of advanced safety and driver assistance features, including:
- Lane-keeping assistance.
- Automated emergency braking.
- Pedestrian detection.
- Lane departure warning.
- PARKTRONIC Active Parking Assistance.
- An ATTENTION ASSIST system that monitors up to 70 aspects of driving behavior and alerts you with visual and audio warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness.
- An SOS button to summon emergency help.
After an accident, the EQB calls Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services automatically. It transmits your GPS location and any information about your vehicle that could be helpful. You can also choose adaptive cruise control, traffic sign assistance, speed limit assistance that displays the speed limit, evasive steering assistance to help you avoid collisions, and a 360-degree camera system. The limited warranty and the powertrain warranty both cover four years or 50,000 miles.
