Bookings for the EQA are now open, with deliveries set to begin in January 2025. The EQA, an all-electric version of the GLA SUV that has been available in India, is the smallest and most budget-friendly electric model from the German luxury automaker.

The EQA will be available in a single variant in India, the long-range EQA 250+, and is available in seven colors: Polar White, Cosmos Black, Mountain Grey, High-tech Silver, Spectral Blue, Patagonia Red Metallic, and Mountain Grey MAGNO.

While the EQA’s design closely resembles the GLA, it features several EV-specific elements. These include redesigned headlamps connected by an enclosed grille and a lightbar spanning the car’s front. The interior mirrors the GLA’s layout but adds unique touches like a back-lit star pattern on the dashboard and doors, along with rose gold or Titanium grey pearl accents on the upholstery and air vents.

The Mercedes-Benz EQA also boasts twin 10.25-inch displays on the dashboard and turbine-style air-con vents with ambient lighting. These screens run software specific to the Mercedes-EQ lineup, providing a distinct and modern driving experience.

The Mercedes-Benz EQA 250+ is powered by a single motor electric motor producing 188bhp and 285Nm of torque. It features a 70.5 kWh battery that offers a range of up to 560 km. The battery can be charged 10% to 80% in about 35 minutes using a 100 kW DC fast charger, and the vehicle comes with an 11 kW AC charger as standard.

Competing with entry-level luxury electric SUVs like the Volvo XC40 Recharge, BMW iX1, and Kia’s EV6, the EQA aims to attract buyers looking for a premium electric driving experience at a more accessible price point.
