The Mercedes EQB received a facelift less than two years after the initial launch, with the updated car set to hit U.S. dealers in the coming months. For the 2024 Mercedes EQB, here’s what you can expect:

The 2024 Mercedes EQB has mild design changes, which is typical of facelifted Mercs. A newly designed black panel surface features a star pattern and is flush-fit with the headlamps on its flanks, with no protruding lines. The light band (LED strip) on top of the faux radiator grille and the headlights retain the outgoing model’s design. Officially, the front bumper is also new, but, you’d need a magnifying lens to spot the differences!

For a fresher look on the sides, Mercedes-Benz offers four new alloy wheels in 18-, 19-, and 20-inch sizes. At the back, the bumper is no different from the current model, but the tail lights feature new, horizontal light guides, granting the new electric SUV a high-tech and bolder styling. Also new for the exterior are two color options – Starling Blue and Cirrus Silver.

The interior of the 2024 Mercedes EQB closely resembles that of the outgoing model. The noticeable changes here are the inclusion of a new steering wheel with capacitive buttons and the exclusion of the touchpad controller. The passenger-side dashboard features a star pattern lasered into its plastic surface, which is adaptively backlit.


The 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system features updated software that makes it easier to use. The user doesn’t need to scroll through submenus or utter voice commands to access core functions. The updated infotainment system allows the user to unlock the charging flap via a softkey in the charging menu. Another difference is the wireless operation of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone integration.

Display styles

There are three new display styles, inspired by the larger electric Mercs: Subtle, Sporty, and Classic. Another similarity with the more expensive models is Sound Experiences, for which there are four choices: Silver Waves, Vivid Flux, Roaring Pulse, and Serene Breeze.

Dolby Atmos & subscription options

The optional Burmester surround sound system, unlike in the outgoing model, features Dolby Atmos. Active Distance Assist Distronic, Traffic Sign Assist, MBUX Augmented Reality for navigation and smartphone integration can be unlocked by purchasing or subscribing in the Mercedes me Store.


Match 3, Sudoku, Pairs, Shuffle Puck, and other mini-games can be played using the touchscreen and touch control buttons on the steering wheel. This feature could be useful This feature is ideal for passing time while waiting to pick up someone or waiting at a charging station. Also new in the 2024 EQB is Sound Experiences, which greets the occupants with a special sound when they approach and enter the vehicle and produces a driving sound through the speakers.

The 2024 Mercedes EQB is a tad safer than the outgoing model, thanks to the inclusion of a new mono camera and a new backup camera. Active Lane Keeping Assist works more comfortably with steering intervention instead of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP). The parking systems can be operated more intuitively and more quickly.


The 2024 Mercedes EQB comes in the same variants as the outgoing model – EQB 250+, EQB 300 4MATIC, and EQB 350 4MATIC, with identical hardware.

EQB 250+

The 2024 EQB 250+ employs a permanent magnet synchronous motor generating 188 hp and 284 lb.-ft. of torque at the front. This motor gets its juice from a 70.5 kWh battery pack. Mercedes-Benz is yet to reveal the EPA-est. range, but we expect it to be approximately 250 miles.

EQB 300/350

The other two variants use a combination of an asynchronous motor at the front and a permanent magnet synchronous motor. The 2024 EQB 300 4MATIC’s powertrain produces 225 hp and 288 lb.-ft. of torque and the 2024 EQB 350 4MATIC’s powertrain develops 288 hp and 384 lb.-ft. of torque. Both share a 66.5 kWh battery pack and their EPA-est. range figures could be ~235 miles and ~225 miles, respectively.


The 2024 EQB can be charged at up to 11 kW (AC)/100 kW (DC). Using a 9.6 kW AC charger to charge the battery pack from 10% to 100% may take approximately 7.75 hours. Fast-charging the same battery pack from 10 to 80% level using a DC charger (at 100 kW) will likely take ~30 minutes.

While the new model’s peak charging inputs are the same as those of the outgoing model, it now offers the convenience of the Plug & Charge function. Just plug the charger into the vehicle, and the charging starts without asking for manual input to authenticate the payment.


Mercedes-Benz is yet to confirm this for the U.S., but globally, it offers a trailer hitch with ESP trailer stabilization optionally for the new 5-seat EQB. The company has reinforced the EQB’s bodyshell structure for this purpose along with the mid-cycle refresh. The braked towing capacity of the new EQB is 1,400 kg (3,086 lbs.) in FWD and 1,700 kg (3,748 lbs.) in AWD (4MATIC).

Release date

The new Mercedes EQB has been confirmed to start reaching U.S. dealerships in the U.S. by June 2024. Prices may start at around USD 53,500. The facelifted EQB had arrived in the U.S. for local testing in 2023. A spy video from KindelAuto (via YouTube) had shown a U.S.-spec test mule (identified by the orange tint on the headlamp cluster) on Californian streets.

Mercedes EQB sales

While it is still building traction, the EQB is one of the top performers in the Mercedes-Benz EV range worldwide. In 2022, it was the company’s second most popular EV, with 24,200 units sold. In the U.S., 1,672 units of the EQB were sold the same year. In 2023, as availability increased, Mercedes-Benz sold 11,767 units of the three-row electric SUV in the U.S. At the global level, the company said sales were up 109% year-over-year, but it didn’t reveal the exact sales number.

TopElectricSUV says

While the Mercedes EQB’s range may be a concern for some buyers, it’s the only seven-seater of its kind on the market. With improved range and charging, better electronics, and styling tweaks, the three-row electric SUV should become a more attractive choice for big families with children.
