The Mercedes-Benz EQA 250 is available for a comparatively lower price at the entry-level, but it doesn’t offer much dynamically. But, it takes the firm’s electrification process to a new level.
The all-electric EV would be a very important vehicle for the company at the entry level. It will make it possible for customers to get an electric compact crossover at an affordable price. It would rival the Tesla Model Y and the Volkswagen ID 3. The EQA is not the first pure EV from the EQ sub-brand, they have already launched the EQC and the EQV. Soon, we will see the fourth one, with the EQS. It uses an adapted GLA platform, but the EQS will be based on the EV-specific architecture.
The company’s main intention with this vehicle was to provide a competitive price, so it can compete with the rivals. The vehicle feels familiar, but it’s available for a good price at the entry level. The motor is placed between the front wheels where the battery pack is mounted between the axles.
The claimed range is 247 miles, which’s less than what Kia e-Niro and the Model Y offers. The former, other than being less expensive, offers a range of 274 miles, where the latter offers a range of over 286 miles.
One thing that you might not like is you have to change the brake discs from time to time. It’s not possible to drive the vehicle for hundreds of thousands of miles and not change them.
We can’t recommend the vehicle to buyers who can easily afford other options. And because if you get more features, you will have to pay more money, for which you can even buy the Polestar 2 or the Volkswagen ID4, it’s even harder to ask you to purchase the vehicle. However, the vehicle looks good on paper and it’s crucial for the Mercedes’ EQ range.
