Mercedes uses a numeric code to distinguish between the three model versions. The version we tested earlier is the Mercedes EQA 250, with one electric motor, 190 hp, 373 Nm and a range of 426 kilometers. The Mercedes EQA 300 4Matic and EQA 350 4Matic are now added to this.
Mercedes EQA 350 in 6 counts to 100 km / h
Both have two electric motors and the same 66.5 kWh battery as the EQA 250. The Mercedes EQA 300 4Matic has an output of 228 hp and 390 Nm of torque. It goes to 100 km / h in 7.7 seconds, making it 1.2 seconds faster than the EQA 250. The EQA 350 4Matic comes to 292 hp and 520 Nm, and is already through the standard sprint after 6.0 seconds. away. All EQAs have a limited top speed of 160 km / h.
Electric range around 425 kilometers
But the most important thing: the range. According to Mercedes, it is roughly the same for the three EQA models: the EQA 250 reaches 426 kilometers, the EQA 300 between 400 and 424 kilometers and the EQA 350 between 409 and 430 kilometers. In our range test of the Mercedes EQA 250, we reached a range of 341 kilometers at a constant speed of 100 km / h.
EQA charges less quickly than the competition
The maximum charging speed of the Mercedes EQA is 100 kW. And that’s not very impressive in this class. The Volkswagen ID.4 and Nissan Ariya are in theory slightly faster, and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 blow the competition away with more than double the 220 kW. If you hang an EQA on a fast charger, it will be 80 percent full again after half an hour.
Hardly more expensive than the Mercedes GLA
The price then. Mercedes has the EQA 250 from 49,995 euros in the price list. For the new EQA 300 4Matic and EQA 350 4Matic you pay a minimum of 55,440 and 58,163 euros. And with that, the Mercedes EQA is not that much more expensive than the non-electric Mercedes GLA, on which it is based. The compact SUV is available from 49,126 euros.
