This SUV is a new entry-level model to the all-electric world of Mercedes-EQ vehicles.

It delivers all the thrilling characteristics of the GLA, combined with an efficient electric power train. Prices in Germany start at EUR 47,540.50.

The combined electricity consumption is 15.7 kWh/100 km.

The standard heat pump forms part of the sophisticated thermal management system. With a Cd value from 0.28, the EQA achieves an excellent result. The frontal area A totals 2.47 m2. The 0 to 100 km/h accelration is 8.9 s and the top speed is limited to 160 kmh. With DC charging it takes 30 minutes to charge the battery to 80% and AC charging will take 5:45 hours. With Mercedes me Charge, customers have access to what is currently the world's biggest charging network: this currently comprises more than 450,000 AC and DC charging points across 31 countries.

Some of the noteworthy design features of the Mercedes-Benz EQA 250 include a continuous fibre-optic light strip at front and rear. It connects the daytime running lights of the full-LED headlamps, ensuring a high level of recognisability both in daylight and at night. The LED tail lamps merge seamlessly into the tapered LED light strip. Exclusive to this model are light-alloy wheels in a bi- or tri-colour design, up to 20 inches in size, in some cases with rosé gold-coloured or blue decorative trim.

An indication of the electric character in the interior of the EQA is provided, depending on the design and equipment line, by a new-style back-lit trim element and rosé gold-coloured decorative trim on the ventilation outlets, seats and the vehicle key. The Edition 1 special model additionally features perforated leather seats, through which blue fabric can be seen. The instruments, with their electric car-specific displays, pick up on the same colour scheme with rosé gold-coloured and blue highlights.

The trailer coupling has been approved for use with a bicycle rack. The all-wheel-drive models will offer an even higher towing capacity.
