What should I be paying?

While the EQB may still be one of the cheapest seven-seat EVs on sale right now, that doesn’t mean it’s actually cheap.

With only relatively high powered all-wheel-drive EQBs on offer, prices start at £53,610. That gets you the 225bhp EQB 300, with the 288bhp EQB 350 commanding another £1,500, prices kicking off at £55,110.

Those are in AMG Line trim, which comes with 18-inch alloys, an electric tailgate, LED lights front and rear, a reversing camera and – hurrah! – illuminated door sills as standard. The front seats are heated and wildly adjustable (just not low enough, huh) while a pair of 10-inch touchscreens and 64-colour ambient lighting lift the mood ahead of them.

Add precisely three grand to each and you’ll upgrade to AMG Line Premium. This hikes the alloy wheels up to 19in five-spoke AMG designs, while you get keyless go, a whopping great panoramic sunroof, a 10-speaker/225W stereo and wireless phone charging up front.


Unless you really crave the roof and stereo, we’d save the cash on both fronts (or perhaps even wait for cheaper single motor options). Diddier wheels help the ride out a bit, while you ought to eke a few more miles of range out of the only slightly slower EQB 300.

That leverages you a bit of money for options, including colour. A very sober black or fridge-like white are the only standard, ‘free’ colours. The rest of your options are a cacophony of other blacks and greys, but there’s red, ‘denim blue’ and rose gold buried among them. Go on, be brave. Embarrass your kids.

If you’re looking to pay monthly, at the time of writing an EQB 300 in base-spec AMG Line trim will set you back around £600pcm with £2,000 down.
