It looks just about ready for production.
Mercedes-Benz is really taking the whole electrification thing seriously. The company has just teased a new model with potential for as much as 750 miles of range, and its answer to the Tesla Model X is undergoing development at the moment. That's not the only all-new electric vehicle on the way though, and one that is almost here is the EQA. Thus far, we've only seen it testing with a blue camouflage wrap on either end of the body, but a new video shows it much more exposed than anything we've come across so far. Take a look at the video below to see the EQA is its almost-production-ready state.
Although the EQA, the electric version of the GLA, won't be as stunning to look at as the concept version, the above video shows that it won't be ugly either. Much like Audi is doing with its e-tron SUV, the EQA is intended to look and feel like a normal car, with only a few subtle styling changes to differentiate it from its gasoline-powered brethren. The EQA spotted here has some unusual camo just ahead of each wing mirror, but we have no idea what detail this may be hiding besides some sort of badge. What we can tell from these images is that the headlights will be slightly recessed from the rest of the body.
It also seems that a unique front fascia with what could be the brand's illuminated three-pointed star will feature too. Under the skin, we expect an electric motor on each axle, with a total of 268 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. This should allow the crossover to accelerate from 0-62 mph in around five seconds. A 60-kWh lithium-ion battery is also expected to provide up to 249 miles of range. We'll soon know more about the EQA's styling and abilities, as the brand new crossover is expected to be revealed before the end of this year with production starting before the new year too.
