The Mercedes EQB was introduced less than two years ago, but the company is already working on a facelift for the electric crossover.

The first prototypes were spied last month, but the latest pictures give us a look inside and reveal a handful of minor changes. One of the most noticeable is a new steering wheel, which is shared with the facelifted A-, B-, and CLA-Class.

That isn’t the only change as the touchpad controller has been jettisoned. While the center console is covered, the touchpad should be replaced by a small tray, like on the aforementioned models.

The rest of the cabin appears to carryover and we can expect a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster as well as a 10.25-inch infotainment system.  While the screen sizes will likely remain unchanged, we can expect the latest version of the MBUX operating system as well as support for wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The minor updates continue outside as the 2024 Mercedes EQB will have a lightly revised exterior with a new fully enclosed grille.  While the design isn’t visible, it will likely eschew the bar treatment and draw inspiration from the one used on the EQE and EQS.

Out back, the taillights sport new horizontal graphics.  This is a slight departure from the current units, which have oval-like elements incorporated into them.

Performance specifications remain unconfirmed, but the current EQB 300 4Matic has a 70.7 kWh battery pack that feeds a dual-motor all-wheel drive system developing 225 hp (168 kW / 228 PS) and 288 lb-ft (390 Nm) of torque.  This setup enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in seven seconds flat and have an EPA range of 243 miles (391 km).

The EQB 350 4Matic is similar, but sports an upgraded dual-motor all-wheel drive system with 288 hp (215 kW / 292 PS) and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque.  This cuts the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time to six seconds, but the range falls to 227 miles (365 km).
