Mercedes' Cheapest Electric Car In The US Gets Official Pricing
Pricing for the newest Mercedes-Benz EQB makes the vehicle a veritable bargain in what's still a fairly rare niche, particularly the low-priced, seven-seat, all-electric crossover segment. Starting at $56,800 for the base EQB 300 4MATIC Exclusive trim, drivers will pay roughly $49,300 after deducting up to $7,500 in tax credits.
While the 2022 model comes in two forms (EQB 300 and EQB 350) and with two trim packages (Exclusive and Pinnacle), standard features include all-wheel drive and a 66.5 kWh battery pack capable of an estimated 260 miles of range. The car also sports a black-panel front grille, front and rear LED lights, and the latest generation of the brand's MBUX multimedia system.
Additionally, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB comes with two years of Mercedes me Charge, a free charging package courtesy of the automaker's collaboration with Electrify America. With the first deliveries arriving in the summer of 2022, would-be Mercedes EV owners can expect a far more attainable alternative to the capable but costly $102k+ EQS sedan.
