Mercedes-Benz Hones Tesla Model Y Fighter At The Ring

Video / Comments

It looks almost ready for production.

Mercedes has been working hard to stay at the top of its game. The company is still creating insane V8 monsters like soon-to-be-unveiled AMG GT R Black Series while also making its first inroads into the electric vehicle market with the EQC.

As much as electric vehicles are a way for the company to keep building overpowered, gas-engined pieces of insanity, the brand also realizes that the future is in electric SUVs. Hence, it has started with electric versions of existing vehicles, and one of these electric SUVs is the upcoming EQB, a car that is meant to be the electric GLB.

Having seen pictures of the upcoming model, we now get to see the EQB in full flow testing at the Nurburgring. Although the infamous Nordschleife is often used as a benchmark for performance when it comes to sports cars, it's also a top destination for those developing everyday cars. This is because the track features numerous elevation, camber, and surface changes, along with tight turns and open straights. These are all scenarios that the daily-driven car will encounter, albeit not on a racetrack. Although details about the new electric SUV are scant, earlier reports have indicated that we can expect a range of up to 310 miles, which isn't too bad for a heavy, battery-laden SUV.

Mercedes has a fantastic reputation for building luxury cars and the marque wants its electric offerings to be just as impressive. Each company has its own strengths, and if Mercedes is truly going to take the fight to the Tesla Model Y, then it needs to offer a level of composure and capability that will make Tesla look like the newcomer it is. If the past 94 years are anything to go by, Mercedes-Benz will be able to make it through just about anything and turn new car trends in its favor. We can't wait to see just how that translates to the electrc EQB.
