What Car? says...
Do you think your family is too big for an electric car? Well, the Mercedes EQB is here to prove you wrong – it's an electric SUV with seven seats.
You're absolutely right, on the other hand, if you think the EQB looks rather familiar. Behind the smoother nose and reworked rear end, this two-box tribute to straight-edge styling shares loads of its parts with the Mercedes GLB large SUV.
Of course, not every family can afford a £100k+ Model X Plaid, and some would rather enjoy a few more creature comforts than what is, basically, a van, so the EQB has the potential to be a big seller.
How does the Mercedes EQB measure up against its rivals in terms of performance, practicality, running costs and in other important areas, then? That's what we'll tell you over the next few pages of this review. We'll also tell you which trim and motor combination we think is best.
