The Mercedes-Benz EQA Is The Second Addition To Its All-Electric Lineup

The Mercedes-Benz EQA Is The Second Addition To Its All-Electric Lineup

Luxury auto heavyweight Mercedes-Benz is already releasing its second vehicle in an ambitious all-electric rollout plan. The Mercedes-Benz EQA 250 will soon join last year’s slightly bigger EQC 400 as a crossover SUV built on Merc’s very successful GLA.

Given the booming sales of their internal combustion counterparts – both the GLC and the GLA – it’s clear Mercedes is hoping to convert this loyal customer base to its more sustainable options over time.

Much like the impressive EQC 400, the EQA 250 will feature wrap-around lightbars on the rear and front of the car, futuristic (almost artistic) multi-spoke wheels, as well as a very liveable interior laden with the latest in Mercedes technology.



As with the EQC, only one battery and powertrain option will be available initially. A single electric motor powering the front axel will push out 140kW and 375Nm of torque. This motor will be linked to a 66.5kWh battery that can charge at rates of up to 100kW on a DC fast charger, with the capability of going from 10% to 80% capacity in just 30 minutes. Currently, its projected range is around the 435km mark, although further iterations of the EQA will likely see that number increase.

When the EQC 400 finally arrived in Australia last year, it was the first Mercedes-Benz available to be purchased online and shipped to your door directly from Germany. It also included a five-year Chargefox subscription and five years complimentary charging on the ultra-rapid Chargefox network. This effectively meant you received free charging in most Australian capital cities as a reward for taking the EV plunge.

It’s not confirmed when – or even if – the EQA will be arriving in Australia, but if the perks of owning an EQC are anything to go by, it’ll be a compelling package at the least.

Official correspondence from Stuttgart also confirms that Merc plans for 10 all-electric vehicles by the end of 2022.
