The next EQ model will be previewed at the Frankfurt motor show, alongside a hotted-up GLB crossover.
Mercedes-Benz will use this year’s Frankfurt motor show to reveal another EQ concept car, suggesting a new pure-electric car wearing the three-pointed star is in the works.
There are no details about what the concept will be, besides the promise it’ll embody “the flexible, customer-oriented and sustainable vision of the Mercedes-Benz product and technology brand EQ”.
Alongside the plug-in concept will be the production EQV, and the first Mercedes-AMG version of the new GLB. Based on the rollout of previous compact AMG models, we’ll see the AMG GLB35 first, powered by a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine making 225kW and 400Nm.
Pictured above, the AMG-fettled GLB will also get a sportier suspension than the standard car, along with a performance 4Matic all-wheel drive system capable of sending 50 per cent of its power to the rear axle.
Expect a 100km/h sprint in the high-four or low-five-second range, and the option of seven seats.
The Frankfurt motor show starts on September 12. Stay tuned to CarAdvice for all the latest.
