The new Mercedes-Benz EQA electric SUV is initially launched as EQA 250 with 140 kW (190 hp). The lithium-ion battery, which is a structural part of the chassis, has a capacity of 66.5 kWh. It should provide a range of 426 kilometres according to the WLTP standard.
The new fully-electric Mercedes-Benz EQA 250 is equipped with the characteristic, black front grille with the centrally located star that characterizes the Mercedes-Benz EQ. Another clear feature of the fully electric Mercedes-Benz EQA is the continuous light strip on the front of the car, which connects the two LED headlights and ensures unmistakable recognizability on the road.
The version that is now being launched is a front-wheel drive, with an engine output of 140 kilowatts (190 horsepower). The torque is stated at 375 Nm, and 0-100 km/h should take 8.9 seconds. The external dimensions are as follows: 4.46 meters long, 1.83 meters wide and 1.62 meters high. This makes it almost identical to Volvo XC40.
With Mercedes MeCharge, customers have access to what is currently the world's largest charging network: this consists of more than 450,000 AC and DC charging points in 31 countries. Mercedes MeCharge enables Mercedes-EQ customers to use the charging stations of different suppliers, while also benefiting from an integrated payment function with simple billing processes.
Sales will start in early February, while deliveries will start sometime between March and May. The Mercedes-Benz EQA 250 with the equipment most customers want will be around 45,000 euros.
Later there will be more powerful versions with up to 200 kW and four-wheel drive.
