First premium electric crossover SUV

Best bits

  • Electric car with 263-mile range
  • Prices start from £40,495
  • First deliveries expected Spring 2021

Not so great

  • More expensive than mainstream alternatives like the Kia e-Niro
  • Unlikely to make a statement as much as a Tesla
  • Bargains will be hard to come by

Overall verdict on the Mercedes-Benz EQA

"The brand new Mercedes-Benz EQA could be one of the most desirable electric cars to hit the market in 2021."

Mercedes-Benz EQA exterior rear

Smaller (and more affordable) than the BMW iX3, the EQA is based on the same architecture as the Mercedes A-Class and GLA. It's the first electric crossoer from a premium brand, beating the Tesla Model Y to market and competing against mainstream rivals like the Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia e-Niro.

What’s the best Mercedes-Benz EQA model/engine to choose?

With a range of up to 263 miles (WLTP) from its 66.5 kWh battery, the 188PS EQA 250 is the newest addition to the EQ range, joining the EQC and the EQV premium MPV in the Mercedes-Benz battery electric vehicle (BEV) line-up.

The EQA has a 66.5kWh battery and a 100kW DC on-board charger allowing it to charge from 10 to 80 per cent in around 40 minutes, and from 10 to 100 per cent in five hours and 45 minutes using an 11kW wall box.

What other cars are similar to the Mercedes-Benz EQA?

Rivals range from the mainstream Kia e-Niro to bigger, premium alternatives like the BMW iX3. There's the upcoming Volkswagen ID.4, too, as well as the SEAT El-Born and Skoda Enyaq iV.
