EQA is the name of the new entry-level model to the all-electric world of Mercedes-EQ vehicles. The electro-aesthetics of its design are symbolic to the Advanced Luxury of the Mercedes-EQ brand. A close relation to the EQA is the GLA, a very successful member of the compact car family from Mercedes-Benz and it is equally expected the EQA will follow in the GLA’s successful footsteps, with its thrilling characteristics combined with an efficient electric powertrain.
Visually, the EQA has a typical Mercedes-Benz EQ front-end design with black panel grille and star, a distinctive fibre-optic strip running along the front and rear and typical EQ blue headlamp strips.
Then the inside delivers further electric character with a batrim element and rosé gold-coloured decorative trim on the ventilation outlets, seats and the key.
The Edition 1 special model will be equipped with perforated leather seats, through which blue fabric can be seen. Additionally, the instruments, with their electric car-specific displays, pick up on the same colour scheme with rose gold and blue coloured highlights.
The seating position is high and upright, as is typical for an SUV – ensuring it’s not only comfortable for getting in and out, but also good in terms of all-round visibility.

To deliver the best or nothing, safety must come first with Mercedes-Benz. The EQA therefore is a true Mercedes-Benz when it comes to safety. Built on the structure of the robust GLA, the EQA has been modified to ensure it meets the requirements of an electric vehicle. Also included as standard on board are the following intelligent driving assistance systems:
