Mercedes' Tesla Model Y - the all-electric EQA!

ავტომობილები & ტრანსპორტი

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
This is the all-new Mercedes EQA! It’s the latest addition to Mercedes’ EQ range of all-electric vehicles, and this small SUV has got the Tesla Model Y in its sights!
It only comes with one choice of electric motor for now, which will produce 190hp and 375Nm of torque. It’ll also do 0 - 60mph in 8.9 seconds, which is pretty much the same as the GLA. And that should come as no surprise, given the EQA is based on the GLA!
As for the range, well it’s not too bad, coming in at 265 miles - even more than the bigger Mercedes EQC! Not only that, but with a 100 kWh fast charger, you can charge it from 10% to 80% in just 30 minutes. Better yet, there’s a new version of the EQA coming in the future, which will have a range of 310 miles!
So what do you think - is the EQA a true competitor for the Model Y? Let us know in the comments!

    Fascinating, Merc fanboys beat the Tesla fanboys by about 5 to 1. Now watch the Merc fanboys stay clear of buying the Merc in droves. Tesla will sell 5-10 times as many Model Y's on German soil. Countless more globally.

    Carwow: Your kW rating of the battery is not correct. The battery must have more peak discharge power (kW) than the motor(s) require. You were stating the kWh energy capacity of the battery, confusing it with the kW discharge power rating. It is time for car journalists to learn the basics of electric propulsion, and stop spreading confusion to your subscribers.

    I had a petrol GLA - it was 500Kg lighter, it had more range, it was a lot cheaper, it took 3 minutes to refuel, refuelling stations are abundant , and when in years to come when it is scrapped there'll be no specialist scrapper to take the battery off your hands for £ Mat, where's the progress?

    nice - was curious about this. More cars in this price range gives me more options when my current lease is up in 2022. Was model 3/Y but now adding ID3/4 and EQA to the shortlist. Hopefully BMW will come up with something similar by then - Would love an electric 4 series Gran Coupe
