The Mercedes-EQ EQB 250 has a maximum power of 140 KW (190 hp/188 bhp). The total torque is 385 nm (284 ft-lb). It performs the 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) in 8,9 seconds. The top speed is 160 km/h.
Battery, range, and charging
The battery has a gross capacity of 69,7kWh and a net capacity of 66,5kWh, meaning you have a 3,2kWh buffer for protection. (4,6%).
The WLTP range varies from 474 to 423 km (295-263 mi), depending on car options. Bigger wheels are an example of an equipment option that increases consumption and reduces the electric range. The consumption is between 14.0kWh/100km for the basic version and 15.7kWh/100km for the top trim version for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.
The maximum DC charging speed is 112kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 59 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 29 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 4% to 70%, resulting in an actual charge speed, including time loss, of 84kW. Each charge session would take 31 minutes and 19 seconds.
For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 25kWh/100km, 1000km will take 10 hours and 31 minutes. This trip will require four charge session(s) charging from 4% to 73%. The total time lost for charging up the battery will be 131 minutes.
For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11 KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 6 hours and 2 minutes.
The location of the charge port is on the right rear side. This location makes it easy to use charge stations where you need to back up into the charger. The connector types vary between the different markets. This model uses CCS Combo 1 for North America and for Europe, CCS Combo 2. See full specifications for all markets.
