Mercedes EQA Hatchback 250 Suv 190hp AMG Line Auto
The new Mercedes EQA is based on the GLA, but Mercedes has made plenty of changes to make sure you can tell them apart – the most obvious being a new front-end.
There’s only one choice of motor and battery at the moment. This model is called the EQA 250 and it comes with a single electric motor with 190hp and 375Nm of torque. This lives under the bonnet and drives the front wheels. It’ll accelerate from 0-60mph in 8.9 seconds, which is about the same as a regular GLA 200 with a 163hp petrol engine.
Mercedes EQC Range and Charging
The new Mercedes EQA can do a pretty impressive 265 miles on a charge according to the latest WLTP tests. This means the EQA can actually manage a few more miles than the bigger (and more expensive) EQC. However, our test suggested that a real-world range of nearer 190 miles is perhaps more likely.
The 66.5kW battery will take just under 6 hours to charge from 10% to 100% using an 11kW wall box. You can also plug it into a 100kW public fast charger, which will recharge it from 10% to 80% in half an hour.
