During yesterday’s press conference, Daimler’s board member responsible for the Mercedes brand made a serious statement. Britta Seeger spoke briefly about the new GLB compact crossover, which, as we now know, will be presented in production form this summer.

Yes, yes, the concept of this novelty has already been presented a few days ago at the auto show in the Chinese city of Shanghai. So far, the conceptual version of the GLB model has not been demonstrated at the New York Auto Show, but given the fact that novices will be of great importance for Mercedes in the United States, there is no doubt that the new car will be presented in this city. Seeger also revealed plans for a fully electric version of the model, which should go on sale in 2021.

Discovered at the testing stage a couple of weeks ago, the zero-emission crossover will be called EQB and in the brand’s model range will be located under another EQC electrical crossover.

 Little is known about these two crossovers, although it is safe to assume that the model with the traditional engine borrows most of the engine range, technology and interior design from other new compact cars Mercedes. These include cars such as the A-Class hatchback and B-Class minivan, as well as the world’s first A-class sedan and its 4-door coupe CLA.

 Recent spy shots have shown that the EQB will not differ in its appearance from the usual performance of the Mercedes-Benz GLB. According to rumors, the new battery will have a capacity of at least 60 kWh, which should provide a power reserve of 500 kilometers.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the render of the updated Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR supercar was published.
