The New Mercedes EQA 2021 EV is the smallest of the all new EQ electric vehicle range of cars and SUVs that Mercedes-Benz in launching. It started with the EQC SUV 4x4, then the EQS luxury saloon to rival the S Class, and now the EQA which is the smallest of the range in compact SUV form, and will rival cars such as the new Volkswagen ID.4 and the Audi Q4 E-Tron SUVs. Mercedes showed the EQA concept car back in 2017 at the Frankfurt motor show it was a 3 door hatch very close in design to the A Class, however now the production version has been released it's strongly related to the GLA, using the same basic metal architecture, but with all new EQC aping headlights, front and rear bumper bumpers tail lights and alloy wheels, and a similar interior with the much vaunted MBUX entertainment and navigation system.
The electric motor replaces the petrol engine under thew bonnet and whilst a range of motors is expected, at launch the car will feature a single motor choice in the EQA 250 model with a 188 bhp motor (140kW) along with a 66.5 kWh useable battery located under the boot floor giving a quoted range of up to 265 miles, though we'd expect closer to 200 in real life use. There's up to 100kW charging rate from a public fast charger giving an 80% charge in 30 minutes whilst out and about, or up to 11kWh at home if your home charger is capable, giving a full charge in around 6 hours. We expect more powerful all-wheel drive versions with electric motors at each axle and larger batteries to follow, and there's always the possibility of an AMG performance model. Specification wise the car will initiall be launched in the fully loaded Edition 1 trim, and will shortly be followed by the more usual Mercedes trim levels such as AMG Line and Night Edition.
