The Mercedes-Benz electric revolution has arrived, with six new models promised in the coming years. The smallest of these will be the Mercedes EQA SUV, the electric alternative to the GLA-Class crossover. The EQA will share a platform with the also-new EQB and is slated to enter production before the end of 2020. It’s unlikely to arrive in the US before the 2022 model year, if at all.
As far as technical details go, Mercedes-Benz has not confirmed much. We do know, however, that the EQA will be built upon an all-electric modular architecture that will be used across the EQ lineup. Expect multiple motor setups with all-wheel-drive, but we aren’t expecting the same 402-horsepower output as the larger EQC 400 SUV. The EQA’s chief rival in the EV crossover realm will be the Tesla Model Y.
