Targeting young individuals and active families who are early adopters of e-mobility, trendsetters, and environmentally conscious consumers, Mercedes-Benz India has introduced two new Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) from its global portfolio. While the all India ex-showroom of EQA 250+ is INR 66 lakh the new EQB 350 SUV (5-seater) is offered for INR 77.5 lakh.

These luxury BEVs are designed to enhance the company’s offerings with extended range, daily usability, dynamic driving experiences, attractive Total Cost of Ownership, and improved residual value.

With these launches, the company augments its EV roadmap for the Indian market, aiming to offer a robust BEV portfolio of six world-class products by the end of this year. By the end of 2024, the company plans to have a BEV in each segment, catering to diverse customer needs—from the EQA 250+ to the luxurious EQS Maybach SUV. Additionally, it is steadily building a comprehensive charging infrastructure across its franchise partner network, featuring DC Fast and Ultra-Fast Chargers (60 kW and 180 kW), and providing complimentary AC wall box chargers to customers with every BEV purchase.

The EQA 250+ seamlessly combines 'Progressive Design' and 'Intuitive Technology,' delivering the iconic Mercedes-Benz experience in an all-electric package for modern customers. Its dynamic SUV body not only exudes style but also promises a thrilling driving experience while maintaining everyday practicality. The EQA 250+ features the standard ‘Electric Art’ package, enhancing its progressive design and elegant looks. This package includes a star-pattern grille with a central star, stylish 19-inch light-alloy wheels, and a continuous light strip that emphasizes the car's identity within the Mercedes-Benz EV family. Inside, the Electric Art package boasts rosé gold highlights on the upholstery and air vents, along with a backlit trim that creates a futuristic and luxurious ambiance.

'Today the youth is highly individualistic having active lifestyle, focused on personal development and of course social responsibility. These customers of EQA are similar - salaried, professional, budding business people, entrepreneurs. They are young, possibly married, and combined household income of more than one crore. They love to stand out from the crowd and for sure the EQA is a best fit for them,' Iyer said.
