2022 Mercedes-Benz EQA price and specs

Mercedes-Benz’s entry-level electric vehicle range has expanded, with a new EQA 350 flagship now in Australian showrooms.

The EQA now has a two-model range, with a choice of single-motor front-wheel drive or dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrains.

Across the showroom floor is the more spacious EQB, which shares the EQA’s platform but offers up to three rows of seating. Both are based on combustion-powered Mercedes-Benz models – the GLA and GLB, respectively – and rival the likes of the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric.

Mercedes-Benz has sold 465 EQAs to the end of July, enough to push it past even combustion-powered small SUVs like the Audi Q2 (349) and BMW X2 (313).
