The new models will add to the existing portfolio, which only includes the EQC electric SUV in India. 

Mercedes-Benz EQB

The Mercedes-Benz EQB comes with the hallmark EQ family fascia, including a black grille with a Mercedes-Benz star in the centre. The SUV features a futuristic continuous light strip at the front and rear, interpreting the advanced world of electric vehicles. The electric SUV comes with a butch design language with power bulges on the bonnet and squared wheel arches. But Mercedes-EQ has worked extensively to achieve a drag value of 0.28 Cd. The EQB measures 4684mm in length, 1834mm in width and 1667mm in height. Powering the EQB is a 66.5 kWh battery that drives a 200 kW electric motor.
