Mercedes EQA spy shots: all-electric baby Benz, snapped

Published: 17 December 2019

 Mixture of GLA and A-class
 Coming soon

You’re looking at the EQA, the next all-electric Mercedes poised to hit the road. As you’d expect from Stuttgart’s rather logical naming conventions, the forthcoming EQ car will sit underneath the EQC and should have the same size and proportions as the GLA. If these spy shots are anything to go by, it’ll be somewhere in between the two: it’ll run higher than the A because it needs to make room for that inevitable skateboard battery configuration.

Long time no tease

Ever since Mercedes announced its EQ range, we’ve expected the EQA – and we actually saw a concept vision of the car at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show. As you’d expect, it featured more than a passing resemblance to the contemporary A-class, but also featured a tonne of concept-style wizardry.

Since then Mercedes has put the EQC into production, and also revealed the EQS concept – an electric version of the range-topping S-class saloon. 

Besides a closed-off grille and GLA-like proportions, there’s not much to see in the pictures above, but a teaser image combined with cold-weather testing means the EV is getting closer to be revealed. In the meantime, here's a look at the best forthcoming EVs.
