Luxury carmaker Mercedes- Benz has introduced an electric sports utility vehicle (SUV), EQB 350 in India.

According to a LiveMint report, the electric SUV has been launched with a starting price of Rs 77.50 lakhs (ex-showroom). The new model EQB 350 replaces the previous model EQB 300 4Matic, which was launched in December 2022, at a starting price of Rs 74.50 lakhs (ex-showroom).

While the EQB 350 comes with significant performance enhancements, it retains the same 66.5 kWh battery pack similar to its predecessor. The new electric SUV comes with 288bhp of power as compared to the previous 225bhp, and a torque output of 520Nm, up from 390Nm.

While visually, the updated EQB 350 closely resembles its predecessor, it still has a few minor changes that have been incorporated, the report added. It further states that there are no major cosmetic alterations in the appearance of the new electric SUV.

However, the carmaker has introduced a new set of 18-inch light-alloy wheels, specifically designed for improved aerodynamic efficiency. The new SUV retains its fake black panel grille and features LED headlights with adaptive high-beam assist. It also includes LED tail lights with an accompanying LED strip, roof rails, and backlit turn indicators.

Talking about its interiors, the report said that the new EQB 350 maintains a similar design aesthetic. It features a spacious center console housing two 10.25-inch displays for the dashboard and infotainment system. The infotainment system utilizes the MBUX system, which is a signature of the company. The cabin offers added luxurious touches such as rose gold accents, two-tone seats, a rearview camera, and a motorized tailgate.
