The Plug and Charge issues described in this thread....
I purchased a new 2022 EQB300 in early September 2022. Overall, I like the performance and drive of the car despite relatively poor range (240 miles max but often much lower). What I cannot stand is how awful and cumbersome charging issues are here in the U.S. Any new MB EV vehicle comes with a...
....would make me steer away from the EQB. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to get an EA charger to work when you are on a road trip,
There is not a problem in the UK. There are many places where you can charge the car on routes. I use ionity chargers in the UK see WE ARE ON IT
When you purchase an EQB you can apply and get very quickly the Mercedes me charge card to use on the network. This gives access to RAPID
chargers. This is a one-year complimentary card where you just pay for what you take out of the charger. After that, you cancel the subscription, but by then you will have sorted out loads of other options. Note.
these are called RAPID chargers which are a lot faster than FAST chargers,
Additionally, there are many other RAPID (CCS) chargers available that you can use to charge from 10% to 80% in approximately 30 minutes.
The Combined Charging System (CCS
) is a standard for charging electric vehicles. It can use Combo 1 or Combo 2 connectors to provide power at up to 350 kilowatts. The EQB will only take at the most 100 kilowatts continuously and then it slows down as it gets towards its maximum battery capacity of 66.5 kw.
