The Mercedes-Benz EQB 300 Will Bring AWD To The Canadian Lineup

Mercedes-Benz will bring its smallest electric SUV to Canada.

The all-electric EQB will join the existing 250+ trim, which is front-wheel drive. The EQB 300 will offer Mercedes’ 4MATIC all-wheel drive and will seat up to seven. Pricing has been announced as well, and the base EQB 300 starts at $69,825 including destination. Given its higher pricing as compared to the 250+, the 300 model will see a higher level of standard equipment.

These changes include dual 10.25-inch screens with navigation, ambient lighting, a panoramic sunroof, heated seats, parking assist, adaptive braking, and active parking assist. These features are all included in the base 300 model, but an Exclusive trim level adds features like a foot-activated trunk release, keyless go, and Mercedes’ Advanced sound system. All told, the Exclusive trim will run buyers $72,325 including destination.

Specs for the 300 have been released as well. Notably, there are no mechanical changes for the Exclusive trim, and the two trims produce the same 225 horsepower and 288 lb-ft of torque. Things are powered by a 70.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a front-mounted electric motor. Mercedes estimates that on AC charging, the EQB 300 will charge from 0-80% in around six hours. With 100kW DC charging, that time falls to just 32 minutes. The automaker says that the EQB will hit dealers by the end of Q2 2024 as a 2024 model.
