Playful New Mercedes-Benz EQA Unveiled in India

Mercedes is on a roll with their electric cars. They are set to launch the new EQA in India on the 8th of July. This will be the fourth car in their stable of electric cars. Mercedes India has EQS Limousine, EQB, and EQE in their lineup. The EQS is a luxury sedan, the EQB is a 7-seater family car and the EQB is a mid-size coupe SUV. The EQA will be the most affordable all-electric offering from the German car manufacturer.

The EQA is expected to be initially launched in the EQA250+ variant with the other variants to follow. There is no confirmation about the AMG trim as of now.


Specifications Expected

  • A 70.5 kW-hr battery pack
  • Power- 190hp
  • Peak Torque- 385Nm
  • 496 – 560 km of WLTP range(as seen in the International version)
  • Front-wheel Drive
  • 8.6 seconds from 0 to 100 kph

Key features

  • Comfortable suspension with ride-height lowering
  • LED high-performance headlamps with Adaptive High beam Assist
  • Ambient lighting with 64 colors and Colour changing based on temperature setting
  • Parts of seat fabrics made with recycled plastic bottles
  • 360-degree parking camera

Mercedes are always known to provide something special to their cars. It is expected that the Mercedes-Benz EQA in India will have gesture controls. These controls will offer convenience in operating the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system. This feature will add to the character of the car. The ICE GLA has always been a very fun-to-drive compact crossover car. The funky-looking interior available has complemented the interior very well. This car has been an absolute favorite among the young enthusiasts. Adding gesture control for the infotainment system will increase the appeal.

Another feature that will be added to the EQA will be a 12-speaker Burmester sound system. This will set this new car apart from the existing GLA. The EQA will provide a much more premium experience when compared to its ICE counterpart. This Burmester system is a 710W output system with subwoofers.


What GoMechanic Thinks of the EQA?

The ‘Three-Pointed Star’ has been a status symbol in India. No other luxury car brand has gained the same popularity level as that of Mercedes-Benz. It is considered as the pinnacle of luxury. Adding the EQA to their lineup is a great move from Mercedes-Benz India. There was a big price gap in the luxury electric car market, and this car will decrease that gap. Buyers opting to go for a luxury electric car under 90 lakhs, had options from the Korean car brands and the newly launched sedan from BYD.

The majority of luxury electric cars available in India, from European manufacturers, are available above the price bracket of 1cr. This new electric crossover will spark the luxury segment once again. Other Car brands will also be targeting the Indian Car market with their affordable electric car offerings. Having a competitive car segment is always good from the buyer’s point of view.
