Hubertus Troska, Daimler AG Board Member responsible for Greater China said, "China is not only the most important passenger car sales region for us, it is also the world's leading market for electric cars.

In addition to the right products, our local production footprint is one of the decisive factors for sustainable growth in China. That's why we are looking forward to produce the all-electric EQB in Beijing."

Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler Group said, "With the all new EQB we have created an iconic electric SUV that takes the heritage of our boxy off-road vehicles and transforms this into the future.
