Mercedes-Benz following the revelation of the electric EQC, it takes one step further, developing this time a compact electric SUV that will probably have the name EQB. German carmaker watching the rapid rise of electric cars worldwide, takes careful steps forward with its own electric cars project.
According to information, the Mercedes-Benz compact electric SUV will be another Sport utility vehicle and will be in the category of BMW X1 and Audi Q3. The code name of the project is X247 and according to the British press that has sources from inside the manufacturer, the new electric SUV will probably be unveiled in the Frankfurt car show next September.
