Anyone with a large family to transport and a desire to do so in an electric car has faced a pretty tough choice so far when it comes to the zero-emission seven-seater. There is the Tesla Model X with six or seven seats. Peugeot, Citroën and Vauxhall, meanwhile, have each added an extended wheelbase version of their electric-powered Partner, Berlingo and Combo models aimed at the passenger market in 2021. The first option is a luxury SUV priced at 90,000 £. The other is a minivan derived from a van.
Nothing in the EV market stays the same for long at the moment, and so there’s now a seven-seater third way, which we’re testing this week. the Mercedes EQ is the all-electric version of the conventionally powered Mercedes GLB, and only the second compact electric model the German automaker has so far introduced under its growing EQ sub-brand.
Like the Mercedes EQA, it’s built on an adapted version of the company’s existing compact car model architecture and not an all-electric platform – but that hasn’t stopped Mercedes from squeezing seven seats into a overall that’s less than 50mm longer than a five-seater Skoda Enyaq iV.
The EQB only becomes the second SUV in the EQ lineup but, as we’ll continue to explore, it’s a car that improvises a bit with Mercedes’ electric car design language, and to quite sympathetic effect. .
