Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA

Just like most of its peers waiting to step on the IAA 2017 stage, the Mercedes-Benz EQA has had its fair share of teasers before Frankfurt kicked off. It is one of the first models to debut using Mercedes-Benz sub-brand EQ. This one is a compact, called the EQA.

Following on from the EQC concept auto revealed at last year's Paris motor show that is due to be launched from 2019, the production version of the EQA is expected to follow soon after as Mercedes-Benz marches towards its stated goal of offering 10 all-electric vehicles on the market by 2022.

Maximum range is estimated at 400 km (249 miles) while charging is a matter of options: induction or wallbox.

Torque stands at 500 Nm and MB says EQA can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in around 5 seconds and shows "impressive driving dynamics" courtesy of an axle-variable torque distribution setup and a low center of gravity facilitated by the floor-mounted 60 kWh battery pack. That company provides cells for the Smart ED line.

The design of the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA is similar in concept to the A Class.

The auto has two electric motors, with a total system output of 268 horsepower.

Outside, this is a very cleanly styled vehicle.

Measuring 4285mm long, 1810mm wide and 1428mm high, the dimensions of the EQA are nearly identical to the A-Class hatchback - which comes in at 4299mm long, 1780mm wide and 1433mm high.

"We eliminated creases and lines and reached the next level of purity", said Gorden Wagener, Daimler design chief. Depending on which program the driver chooses, the grille changes looks, showing a flaming wing in "Sport" or a Panamericana grille in "Sport Plus". The head and taillights are lit by laser fibers.

Inductive charging and wall box units for homes would also be available should the EQA see production. No word on when a production EQA would be introduced.
