The new Mercedes-Benz EQA is the first all-electric compact model of this brand, which, according to the official announcement, brings a great compromise between performance and cost to the market. The model goes on sale in the spring at a price of about 45,000 EUR.
This is one of six EQ models Mercedes plans for 2022, including a seven-seater EQB, which will be directly above the EQA in the catalog.
The new model uses the GLA crossover as a basis, but has unique styling details to differentiate it from the conventionally powered model. Among them are the new EQ black panel on the front and the light belt on the front and rear of the vehicle.
All lights are equipped with LED technology, and the rear end has been redesigned to distinguish it from the GLA. Mercedes notes that the new model is clearly recognizable day and night because of all this. The wheels of the new design can be painted in two or three colors, and their diameter is up to 20 inches. The aerodynamic coefficient is 0.28.
Changes in the cabin in relation to the GLA are less than outside. The basic layout is the same, but the details of the rose-gold color on the ventilation openings, seats and key have been added, as well as the backlight on the trim. The fully equipped first series (Edition 1) has a special leather combined with blue linen upholstery.
The instrument panel has been redesigned and contains specific functions for the electric vehicle. Mercedes states that the EQA brings a desirable driving position in one SUV model combined with a focus on multifunctionality. The possibility of dividing the rear backrests in the ratio 40:20:40 has been retained.
EQA is special for its thermal control system, thanks to which the heating pump uses the heat emitted by the electric drive. The air conditioning is controlled via the MBUX multimedia system or the Mercedes Me application. Mercedes’ battery charging network is available to all users of the EQ model and consists of 450,000 stations in 31 countries.
The standard safety package includes active assistance for driving between traffic lanes and automatic braking, and the additional package brings a warning to pedestrians crossing the pedestrian crossing. Other regular equipment includes adaptive high beams, electric tailgate opening, 18-inch wheels, 64-color ambient lighting, rear view camera, adjustable lumbar support in luxury seats. We offer AMG Line, Electric Art and Night packages for vehicle personalization.
The EQA will initially be sold with a 66.5kWh battery, which allows for 425km of autonomy. The power of the electric motor placed in the front is 190HP, and the maximum torque is 375Nm. Acceleration from 0-100km / h takes 8.9 seconds, and top speed is limited to just under 160km / h. Additional drive variants will be subsequently included in the offer, and among them are the two-engine version, and the high-performance AMG version.
