The German automaker has introduced the 2022 Mercedes EQA based on GLA-Class featuring clean appearance, advanced tech, and of course electric power. A member of the EQ electric vehicles family looks pretty much like the GLA minus the pseudo-sporty chaos, with a widespread front end and the rear's horizontal light bar.
The compact-crossover EQA250 will be available in Europe boasting a front-mounted asynchronous motor creating 187 horsepower and instant 277 pound-feet of torque, which is a little extra compared to the GLA250, offering 258 pound-feet. However, the conventional GLA makes more power (34 horsepower to be exact).
Though the 2022 Mercedes EQA gets more torque from step-off, it is not the quickest in acceleration. It takes two seconds extra to hit 60 mph speed than the GLA.
Mercedes has no plans to introduce the EQA for the American markets so far. However, it will feature a more robust drivetrain if it does come there. We are expecting an all-wheel-drive and power output of 280.
According to the European cycle, the EQA250 gets its power from a 66.5-kWh battery pack delivering an impressive range of over 300 miles. While it is a great range, it comes at a cost. The weight of the EV is more than a 6-cylinder, mild-hybrid S-class.
Step inside the 2022 Mercedes EQA, and we see the interior inspired by the GLA. That’s not a bad thing at all because the GLA has one of the most innovative user interfaces and other advanced amenities any car buyer would love to have.
Mercedes will develop the electric crossover in China and Germany. For the European markets, the company has made it a little more expensive than the GLA250. However, incentives will fill that gap effortlessly.
