Mercedes-Benz reveals compact EQA concept at Frankfurt

Mercedes-Benz has further strengthened its electric intentions at Frankfurt, with the EQA concept.

It’s the manufacturer’s first all-electric concept vehicle in the compact segment.

"Our electric initiative is gathering pace: by 2022 Mercedes-Benz Cars will have launched more than ten all-electric vehicles on the market. And the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA proves that we are serious about introducing electric mobility throughout the portfolio," said Dr Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Daimler AG and head of Mercedes-Benz Cars.

Two electric motors provide drive, developing around 270PS while the range is expected to be 250 miles.

It can switch between front, rear or all-wheel-drive and with a maximum torque of 500Nm the EQA can reach 62mph in five seconds.

The black panel at the front end acts as a virtual radiator grille and changes its look according to the drive program. In the Sport setting the grille depicts a flaming wing in horizontal format, while in Sport Plus vertical struts in the style of a Panamericana radiator grille are displayed.

The Concept EQA can be charged via induction or wallbox and is also ready for rapid charging. Mercedes-Benz says a 10 minute charge would result in a 60-mile range boost.
