Stylish new all-electric and affordable Mercedes
2 of 10
The Mercedes EQA is the latest in Mercedes’ ever-growing line-up of all electric cars. This electric version of the Mercedes GLA is an alternative to the likes of the VW ID.4, BMW iX3 as well as the upcoming Tesla Model Y. It’ll also cost less than the existing Mercedes EQC SUV, despite having a greater distance range. The new Mercedes EQA electric car is on sale now. Entry-level ‘Sport’ models will set you back £40,495. These versions come with automatic headlights, cruise control and a reversing camera. 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 no grille – electric cars don’t need big grilles, because they don’t have a hot engine that needs cooling. Instead, you get a big piece of shiny plastic, with a small air intake underneath – just like on the bigger EQC. The designers have been busy at the back, too. You get some new brake lights and another full-width light bar. And, because this takes up a lot of space on the boot lid Mercedes had to move the number plate down onto the bumper instead. The new EQA’s interior is basically the same as the GLA’s cabin. It has the same simple layout and an almost identical dual-screen infotainment system as standard. This means you get two small seven-inch screens as standard. Here are some of the best shots of the stylish new all-electric Mercedes EQA.
