Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the EQA – its first all-electric crossover.

As the name suggests, the EQA is based on the GLA and uses the latter’s body shell with a few modifications. The cosmetic changes include a glossy front fascia instead of a conventional grille and full-LED headlights. The rear features wraparound tail lights with an LED light bar in between.

The interior of the EQA looks similar to the GLA’s cabin. The dashboard consists of dual displays – one for the instrument cluster and the other for the MBUX infotainment system. In addition to the Night Package, there are two design packages to choose from – Electric Art and AMG Line. The Edition 1 model comes with leather and 20-inch alloy wheels.

Powering the EQA 250 is a single electric motor producing 188 BHP. It is powered by a 66.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that is claimed to offer a maximum range of 486 km (NEDC). A dual-motor version with a 500 km range will be introduced at a later date.
