New electric Mercedes-Benz EQA revealed

Date: 20 January 2021   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the EQA, the new entry-level model for its pure electric car range.

The model is launching with a 190hp electric motor, and a 66.5kWh battery pack, allowing an indicative range of 265 miles on the WLTP cycle.

A battery recharge will take 30 minutes with a rapid DC charger, and five hours 45 minutes with an AC wallbox.

Further powertrain options will subsequently join the range, offering either an increased power output or an extended range, as well as all-wheel drive - the launch model, badged 250, is front-wheel drive.

The EQA is a compact SUV, based on the platform of the GLA.

Among the technology on offer with the car will be navigation with 'electric intelligence', which calculates routes while taking battery range into account, allowing time for charging stops, as well as considering other factors such as the weather.

Standard safety systems will include lane keep assist and autonomous emergency braking.

The first UK deliveries of the EQA will begin in spring 2021. Mercedes says UK prices and specs will be announced in the next few weeks - German market prices start at ?47,540.50.
