Mercedes-Benz has expanded its EQA EV line-up with new all-wheel drive twin-motor 4Matic versions
Mercedes-Benz has boosted the EQA EV range upwards with the introduction of new twin-motor EQA 300 4Matic and EQA 350 4Matic versions.
The higher-power variants have electric motors on both the front and rear axles, to give all-wheel drive traction and a useful power boost.
The EQA 300 4Matic produces 228hp, while the EQA 350 4Matic puts out 292hp – good for 0-62mph in 6.0 seconds.
Both versions have a 66.5kWh battery and a pure electric driving range of 264 miles.
Prices for the new models show an understandable jump up from the existing EQA 250 variant. The EQA 300 4Matic starts from £48,495, while the EQA 350 4Matic is priced from £49,995.
Mercedes-Benz is offering the twin-motor EQA versions in AMG Line grade, with AMG Line Premium and AMG Line Premium Plus add-on packs.
Entry-level AMG Line versions have 18-inch AMG five-spoke alloy wheels and an AMG body styling pack including AMG front and rear aprons, plus a black panel radiator grille with twin-blade design.
AMG Line Premium (pictured above), for a £3k premium boosts the wheels to 19-inch five-twin-spoke rims, and adds an opening panoramic glass roof, augmented reality sat nav, premium sound system and wireless smartphone charging.
AMG Line Premium Plus, which costs £6k more than entry-level EQA AMG Line, sees the wheels grow once again to 20-inch AMG multi-spoke alloys.
It also adds adaptive suspension damping, electric front seats, head-up display, MBUX Interior Assistant with gesture control plus a sparklingly crisp Burmester surround sound system.
