Mercedes-EQ is the brand name for the range of electric cars from Mercedes-Benz. The EQ range includes several fully electric cars and is constantly expanding.
In the absence of an internal combustion engine, the EQ cars are powered by an electric motor; which ensures an almost silent drive, an instantaneous torque and no exhaust fumes.
The 100 percent electric cars are just as luxurious as the petrol and diesel cars, but are distinguished by several features that are unique to the EQ brand. On the internet you will find an overview of electric Mercedes.
Navigation with electrical intelligence
Satellite navigation is a modern technology that has become quite common in cars, especially those of premium and luxury brands. However, the EQA and other models in the EQ range feature electric intelligence navigation.
Simply put, this gives you the ultimate system for planning your route in an electric vehicle (EV). Include information such as:
- A quick and convenient route
- Current state of battery charge
- Weather forecasts
- Charging infrastructure
If you’re traveling in the EQA with an all-electric range of up to 423 kilometers, the system will suggest the most time-efficient and convenient route, including necessary charging stops. It will also clarify what type of charging station it is so you can plan your time. Because the EQA is charged much faster via a fast charging station, which is preferred to the navigation system with electrical intelligence.
User Experience (MBUX) multimedia system
Not strictly unique to the EQ brand, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) multimedia system was debuted in the A-Class, which just happened to earn a place in our top 5 best car interiors blog, and has been featured in every new car ever since. Mercedes Benz car.
This intelligent multimedia system allows users to intuitively control many functions of the EQA through the large, high-resolution screens using hand gestures, voice control or touch.
A simple “Hey Mercedes” activates the system to be ready to respond to your request, which could be anything from calling a friend via your smartphone or finding a charging station along the route. Thanks to smartphone integration, you can link your mobile phone to the media system via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
By learning the driver’s habits, the system can remember your favorite songs, as well as your frequent trips, perhaps home or work.
Unique EQ design
The EQ vehicles differ from the conventional cars in the Mercedes-Benz line-up and have a unique design to make it clear that they are fully electric.
Combining sporty looks with the versatility of a compact SUV, the EQA has a modern and futuristic design that makes it instantly recognizable as an EV.
Following on from previous EQ models, the EQA features a front LED light band that connects the powerful LED headlights to the signature black panel grille. Move to the rear of the car, which is equally attractive, and you’ll find another LED light band as well as privacy class to enhance the sporty aesthetic.
Upgrade to the AMG Line and the EQA gets striking AMG body styling and illuminated door sills, with the EQA lettering.
Aerodynamics are a major focus for electric cars and the EQA happens to be the first EQ-series car to have its aerodynamics developed entirely through digital simulation; the result is a design with a fully enclosed air cooling system, aerodynamically efficient front and rear skirts and an almost completely smooth closed underbody.
Intelligent battery technology
In the center of the EQA, under the passenger compartment, the high-voltage lithium-ion battery is the power source with a capacity of 66.5kWh.
Intelligent Thermal Management keeps the EQA’s battery at the optimum temperature. This means that the battery can adapt to the right climate depending on the situation, so that it has the perfect temperature for fast charging when visiting a charging point.
This intelligent system is equipped with a heat pump as standard, so that excess heat from the battery can stimulate the interior climate; the energy of the battery is maximized and at the same time a comfortable driving temperature is created in the cab. By preventing heat loss, this system is designed for maximum efficiency and maximum all-electric range.
Obvious advantages of electric driving are zero emissions and instant acceleration, but there are many more benefits; especially with the EQA or any other EQ car.
Choose from multiple driving modes:
- Sport – prioritizes performance over efficiency and offers maximum power and responsive drive.
- Comfort (Standard) – Reduces performance slightly for a smooth and comfortable power delivery that improves efficiency and extends range.
- Eco (eco assist) – helps reduce power consumption and increase range by guiding you to drive in the most energy efficient way at an optimal speed.
- Recuperation – you can choose from four recuperation modes, which vary in how much the electric motor is used to slow down the car and return energy to the battery.
Get to know the EQA
Based on the GLA, the EQA is an all-electric model with a decent all-electric range that’s more than adequate for commuting and everyday driving. Typical of a Mercedes-Benz model, the interior is refined and equipped with state-of-the-art technology and a comfortable driving experience; while the exterior consists of an aerodynamically efficient design with unique EQ branding elements.
These are just five outstanding features of the EQA, to fully appreciate the car and discover all it has to offer, take it for a test drive at your nearest Stratstone Mercedes-Benz dealer.
