  • Mercedes EQA confirmed
  • To be based on the GLA
  • Futuristic design
  • Latest MBUX infotainment
  • Around 250 miles of range
  • 2021 reveal expected

The Mercedes EQA has been confirmed by the German car manufacturer – it’s set to be the smallest all-electric model in the EQ range and will be based on the GLA crossover. Read on for everything we know about it so far.

The road-ready EQA will take inspiration from this Vision EQA Concept. 

Mercedes EQA design

The Mercedes EQA might have been confirmed officially, but there’s not much information to go alongside it. We can have a guess at how it might look by looking at previous concept cars, as shown above, as well as the new GLA.

That’s because the EQA is going to be based on the existing GLA crossover – so it’ll have similar dimensions, yet with smoother, more futuristic styling to go alongside the other EQ models.

The EQA’s interior is expected to feature a similar layout to the GLA’s, shown here.

We expect that the interior will be spacious, but not much different to that of a GLA. There should be plenty of high-quality materials inside alongside the latest in-car tech, too.

Mercedes’ MBUX set-up is sure to appear in the EQA, with an advanced voice activation system just like in other cars with the latest Mercedes infotainment. There will be twin display screens including a touchscreen, with extra features unique to the electric-powered model.

Expect around 250 miles of range from high-spec EQA models. 

Mercedes EQA range

It’s possible that there will be more than one variant of the Mercedes EQA, with a front-wheel drive version using one motor up front and a four-wheel drive version using a motor on each axle.

Expect it to have a range of around 250 miles, which would put it in direct competition with the Volkswagen ID.3 –another all-electric family car that was launched recently.

Mercedes will likely reveal the finished EQA in 2021. 

Mercedes EQA price and release date

The Mercedes EQA will launch at some point in 2021 as part of a wave of new Mercedes EQ models. As a more upmarket competitor to the VW ID.3, you can expect the price to be a smidge steeper. It’ll most likely cost more than £40,000 when it arrives, possibly rising over £50,000 for high-spec models.

There will be other new EQ models joining the range soon as well, including an EQB model that will be based on the GLB. This means it’ll be more spacious than the EQA, if not quite as sleek-looking. You can read more about all of the new EQ models here.
