The EQA concept was original introduced as a compact hatchback at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2017. Mercedes presented the concept with a a “real-world range” of 200 miles achieved with a 60 kWh battery pack that fed dual motors with over 268hp. In addition it was presented with DC quick charging which could add up to 100 km (62 miles) of range in only 10 minutes.
Since its 2017 unveiling, Mercedes-Benz decided to switch gears and move forward with the EQA as an electric crossover. Up until now, the few prototypes and spy shots we have seen of the upcoming EV have all been heavily camouflaged.
In the video we see the two upcoming EVs “getting ready for the streets” at Mercedes-Benz’s impressive testing facility. Although Mercedes-Benz initially hoped to launch the EQA before the end of the year, new German reports suggest the launch of production won’t begin until 2021. The electric crossover is slated to be the cheapest all-electric vehicle from Mercedes-Benz to date.
