Electrification is coming quicker and quicker in the modern automotive world. Famed brands such as Mercedes-Benz have made electrifying certain vehicles a priority. So, if you want to enjoy the practicality of an SUV, the innate luxury of Mercedes-Benz, and the benefits of an all-electric powerplant, pay attention to this 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB SUV review.
Within the following few sections, we’ll be talking about how this SUV works and what you can expect from it during drives near Scottsdale, AZ. Further questions can be directed to our Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale team!
For many luxury car shoppers, their next electric model is going to be their first. So, understanding how SUVs such as the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB work is an important part of deciding whether this is the right model for your lifestyle.
Powering the 2022 EQB is an electric motor with a 70.7 kWh battery capacity. The power is estimated at 225 horsepower and 288 lb-ft of torque. Acceleration is swift thanks to the electric powerplant and the single-speed transmission, with the completion of a 60 MPH dash from a standstill coming in just seven seconds flat. An all-wheel drive system courtesy of 4MATIC® allows power to be delivered to each wheel for extra traction.
More important than the speed, however, is the range and recharge times. Mercedes-Benz and EPA estimates suggest the 2022 EQB is going to offer 243 miles of all-electric range.* How quickly this range can be replenished depends on the charging unit you utilize.
If you have an AC charging port in your garage as most electric owners are keen to do, going from 10% battery to 100% battery is an overnight proposition, taking roughly 7.75 hours. With a DC fast charger nearby, however, you can restore the power of your SUV from 10% to 80% in just 32 minutes!
Driving the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB is much like other Mercedes-Benz models as the SUV is proper, poised, and quiet on the road. There are specific features to consider, however, as the driving experience is still slightly different than that of an internal combustion engine.
One of the features of note would be the Intelligent Energy Recovery with Paddles which come standard on each trim. With these paddles, you can choose the intensity of energy recuperation during deceleration and braking. There are three levels to consider:
Increased creates a one-pedal driving experience where the SUV can come to a complete stop, almost like braking, just from you letting off the brake pedal. It makes driving much easier. And if an immediate stop is required, you of course still have the brake pedal in place. In addition, the driver-assistance safety features of the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB will intervene to ensure your protection.
Dipping your toes into an all-electric model makes sense, especially if that model happens to be the lovely 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB. A hit in 2022 already, you can contact us at Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale to drive this SUV around Scottsdale for yourself!
