The EQA isn’t exactly engaging to drive or quick. Its big draw is the hugely refined and reassuring feelgood ambience, and that’ll satisfy the fanbase. If perhaps not find new converts. One look explains it. The facial mask is EQ – Mercedes’ new-age all-electric brand. But the body behind that is GLA, their conventional compact crossover. So the EQA started as GLA and after surgical intervention is now powered wholly by batteries. A bit of a Franken-EV. But not in a horrific way.
Mercedes EQA 2021 review – see what I really think about it!
This is the new Mercedes EQA! You can probably already tell it’s based on the Mercedes GLA, but of course, there’s one key difference – the EQA is all-electric! The question is, should you really consider paying several thousand pounds more to go electric? Well, the EQA has a 66.5kWh battery pack which powers a single front motor. This can produce 190hp and 375Nm of torque. Four-wheel-drive variants are due to in the future, but for now, you’ll have to settle with front-wheel-drive only. When it comes to powering up your EQA, it has the ability to charge up to 100kWh, which will help boost your battery from 10% to 80% full in just 30 minutes, which isn’t too bad! As for interior space & practicality, well, it’s all pretty similar to the GLA, although you may have to compromiseimise a little on space to accommodate the battery pack! So what do you think – could the EQA change the game for small all-electric SUVs? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!
