The EQA Is The Cheapest Mercedes-Benz EV


20 Sep 2021
 

With the EV race hotting up among luxury brands, Mercedes-Benz launches their next and cheapest EV to date, the EQA. If the small SUV’s form seems quite familiar, but are not able to place it, the EQA is based on the ICE powered GLA.

For Singapore, there is just one power option,the EQA 250, which has a rated power output of 190hp, and 375Nm. The small SUV boasts a maximum range of 426km on a full charge, with power sourced from a 66.5kWh battery; with consumption rated at 16.2kWh/100km. The EQA can take up to 11kW AC charging and a maximum 100 kW DC power. The 11kW AC charging process can be completed from 10% in approximately 6 hours, while DC charging from 10% to 80% can be done in just 60 minutes.

There are four variants of the EQA available, the most basic being the Progressive which retails for $222,888. The sportier-looking AMG Line goes for $240,888. The other two models, the Electric Art and Edition 1, will reach the showroom in the later part of the year. 

The EQA is characterised by its near-flush front grille, cross-width LED strips for both the front and rear. The AMG Line variant adds a little more visual kit to the SUV, including a set of 19” aerodynamic rims.

While the interior is carried over from the GLA, the addition of the battery means that interior space is slightly compromised. What is more noticeable though, is the smaller 340 litre boot, as compared to the regular GLA’s 435 litres.

The EQA is available with higher-powered EQA 300 and EQA 350 options overseas which boasts a dual-motor drivetrain. Mercedes-Benz here have not ruled-out including the higher-powered offerings within their EQA range here in the future.

In the pipeline, there will be two dedicated architectures for their range of full electric cars; the Electric Vehicle Architecture (EVA), which will underpin larger vehicles like the EQS and EQE, and the brand’s large SUV lineup. The second is the Mercedes-Benz Modular Architecture (MMA), which is dedicated to their small car range (in context cars which are the size of the A-Class, CLA and GLA and GLB). Additionally, there will also be a separate dedicated architecture for use on their high-performance AMG vehicles. Buyers who are keen on switching to a luxury EV, can expect the EQS (S-Class) and EQE (E-Class) hitting Singapore’s Mercedes-Benz showroom in the coming years.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
