Following news that the carmaker plans to go all-electric by 2022, Mercedes-Benz unveils its first ever all-electric concept car for its EQ C-segment.

Dubbed the Concept EQA, the vehicle features two electric motors, whicch produces over 200 kW (272 PS) with an all-wheel drive, front to rear torque distribution.

It also features a lit-up virtual radiator grille, as well as lit Mercedes logo in the middle, all of which changes according to the drive program. When it “Sport”, the panel shows a flaming wing, or “Sport Plus” reveals a Panamericana grille reminiscent of their new GLE 63 model.

When fully charged, via induction or wall box and is also ready for rapid charging, the Concept EQA offers a range of around 400 km (248 miles.)

“With the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA, our electric initiative is gathering pace: by 2022 Mercedes-Benz cars will have more than ten all-electric vehicles on the market,” stated Daimler head, Dr Dieter Zetsche.

The EQC is scheduled to come out of the Mercedes-Benz Bremen plant in 2019 and based on the Concept EQ exhibited in Paris last year.
