Mercedes-Benz EQA All-Wheel-Drive Powertrains: All You Need To Know


The new variants are notches above the front-wheel-drive EQA 250

 

Mercedes-Benz debuted the EQA electric SUV in January and has recently added two new options to the lineup -- EQA 300 4MATIC and EQA 350 4MATIC. Here’s all you need to know about these two trims: 

Powertrain

Unlike the EQA 250, which is a front-wheel drive, the 300 4MATIC and 350 4MATIC drive all four wheels via a dual-electric motor. The former can push out 228PS and 390Nm, whereas the latter generates 292PS and 520Nm. This means the 350 4MATIC belts out 102PS and 150Nm more than the EQA 250.

 

Need for speed

 

The 300 4MATIC can go from 0-100kmph in 7.7 seconds, while the 350 4MATIC can do that in six seconds. In comparison, the EQA 250 makes the same sprint in 8.9 seconds. The top speed for both the trims are capped at 160kmph, 60kmph faster than the 250.



Battery And Range

The 300 and 350 4MATIC continue with the 66.5kWh battery pack and claim to have a World harmonized Light-duty vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) range of up to 426km and 432 kilometres, respectively. A 100kW DC fast charger can top up the battery pack from 10 to 80 percent in just 30 minutes. Mercedes has confirmed it is working on a long-range variant with a WLTP claimed range of over 500km. 



Other Features?

Powertrains aside, the two EQA trims remain unchanged. There are some distinguishing features, including a closed-off grille, a horizontal fibre-optic strip across the grille connecting the DRLs, and revised LED headlights with EQ-themed blue strips. The sporty AMG Line gets a bespoke diffuser and different 18-inch alloy wheels.

Key features include 10.25-inch twin screens with MBUX infotainment system, turbine HVAC vents, 64-colour ambient lighting, a powered tailgate, and an Electric Intelligence navigation system which calculates the fastest route by factoring in range simulations, charging stops, traffic situation, topography, and weather.

Back home, the EQA SUV could be on the cards for a late-2021 or early-2022 launch in India considering Mercedes-Benz has plenty of products lined up for this year.
