The German manufacturer has just renewed its entry-level model in the brand’s electric range. gives it a fresher and more modern vibe, with some technical improvements implemented. At first glance, the new EQA features a new front grille reminiscent of some of the latest electric models from Mercedes-Benz.

The doors.
The most interesting improvement of the new EQA is not cosmetic, however. Mercedes-Benz has increased the efficiency of this electric SUV, which consequently results in greater autonomy per charge. To achieve this, the German manufacturer has optimized the car’s aerodynamics, installed new tires with low rolling resistance and integrated a new driving mode that optimizes autonomy by switching off the elements of the car that are not constantly needed. With this, Mercedes-Benz promises that the new EQA version 250+ can travel 560 km on a single charge in the WLTP homologation cycle.\On the other hand, charging is much easier with the new EQA, thanks to the addition of the function Plug&Charge which starts charging automatically as soon as the hose is connected. This feature allows EQA drivers to forget RFID cards or mobile applications to identify themselves before charging starts and continue with the payment later.
