For the first time, a test carrier for the next EQA model of Mercedes-Benz could be scanned in more detail – both in the interior as well as exterior. Remarkably unremarkable, especially since the model will incorporate most of the elements from the GLB model of Mercedes-Benz. Completely fallen of the test vehicle, however, was not to continue.
Technically, the Mercedes-Benz EQA only with E-Motor (PMS – permanent machine) – magnet synchronous driven and is based on the EVA 1.5 in platform. Compared to the standard GLA, the electric version is higher, whereby the vehicle floor gives space for the Lithium-ion batteries. The weight of the batteries, we expect around 600 to 700 kg, is to be expected with a capacity of around 60 kWh, if necessary, a further stage up to a maximum of 110 kWh–. The base of the EQA is probably driven by a 150 kW electric Motor, where with power levels of 200 and 250 kW could be. When Charging the batteries in the fast mode charging in 20 minutes, 70 % (SoC) to achieve.
When the battery is the electrical brother of the new GLA range is the H series 243, incidentally, is expected in the year 2020 at least, with the world premiere of the model, while the market launch in 2021, it is scheduled.
