The Mercedes Benz EQA looks good, but it looks even better next to a premium home EV charger to match that will have the neighbours peering over the fence for a glimpse.
Mercedes Benz EQA EV is it any good?
The EQA is the latest electric car from Mercedes Benz and it’s a great little EV. It’s perfect for the city because it’s small and easy to park, but it’s also got plenty of power and a great range.
The EQA is really fun to drive. It’s got a lot of power (350) and it handles really well. It’s also really quiet (being an EV) which is great for city driving. The range is impressive as well. I’ve been able to drive it for over 125 miles (without lowering the battery too much) on a single charge, which is more than enough for most trips and keeps range anxiety at bay – you can always go for the larger 55.0 kW battery if you plan on longer trips.
The EQA is also perhaps surprisingly affordable. Whilst it’s certainly not the cheapest electric car on the market, it looks reassuringly expensive when actually if you go for the lower range battery you can get an instant bargain. Plus, it comes with a lot of great features, like the Mercedes Benz app and the voice controlled assistant.
Average Charging Times for the Mercedes Benz EQA
Quite a few variables here so lets take it from 0% to 100% charge for simplicities sake.
- 3 pin to type 2 = est. 28.5 hours at 7.5m/h
- Premium home charging with a 7.4kW EV charger = est. 8.5 hours at 26m/h
Please note: your battery level should never go below 20% if you can help it, this defends your Electric car from EV battery degradation

The 36.8 kWh battery is the smaller of the two options and is perfect for those who are looking for an affordable and efficient all-electric vehicle. The 36.8 kWh battery has a range of about 215 miles and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds.
The 55.0 kWh battery is the larger of the two options and is perfect for those who are looking for a more luxurious and spacious all-electric vehicle. The 55.0 kWh battery has a range of about 310 miles and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds.
Both battery options come with a 7.4 kW onboard charger, which means that the car can be fully charged in about 3.5 hours. But as always we recommend you stay away from rapid charging unless you really have to and used a premium home EV charger.
