Mercedes-Benz EQA

Aimed at the Tesla Model Y, Volvo XC40 Recharge and Lexus UX300e, the EQA is a successful high-riding premium hatchback crossover based on the hugely-popular GLA. But like the latter, it is not built on a dedicated EV platform.

The EQA250 FWD’s 140kW single motor offers modest performance, but is tuned for maximum efficiency. Range is rated at 426km. The speedier EQA350 4Matic version uses two motors (one at each axle) for a combined 215kW and all-wheel drive. Both feature a 66.5kWh battery, for a driving range of 426km and 432km respectively.
