The EQA is the third pure EV in Mercedes' EQ sub-brand, with the S-Class-flavoured EQS soon to become the fourth. The body-in-white is mostly to GLA specification, although the subframes have been modified to reduce road roar. The basic suspension design – MacPherson struts up front with a multi-link rear – is also carried over from the GLA. Positives include the driving position, which is sporting, despite the stratum of battery cells propping it up.
The Mercedes EQA is based on the combustion-engined GLA model. Priced from around £44,500, the EQA doesn't qualify for any government grant to help reduce the on-the-road cost. The range doesn't include an 'entry-level' trim as such, so you benefit from a decent level of standard equipment.
The Mercedes-Benz EQA is based on the petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid-powered GLA. It's a zero-emissions SUV designed to take on cars like the Volkswagen ID.4 and Volvo XC40 P8. Prices for the EQA start from just £40,495 after the government's £3k Plug-in car grant.
The Mercedes-Benz EQA is the first mass-market electric Mercedes. It uses a 140 kW-motor (188bhp) on the front axle, and a battery around 70kWh in capacity is under the floor. The powertrain supplies enough energy for a claimed 261-mile range under the WLTP tests. Top speed is electronically muzzled to 99mph.

The Mercedes-Benz EQA is the latest addition to the growing UK EV market. Priced from £40,495 in its most basic form, it offers a lot of premium SUV-shaped EV for the money. The 140kW/187bhp EQA averages 15.7kWh per 62 miles. It can cover 266 miles between jabs, and there is a long-range version good for over 310 miles.
