Mercedes Benz have unveiled their first all electric concept car at this years Frankfurt Motor Show, the Mercedes Benz Concept EQA. The new Mercedes Benz Concept EQA is powered by two electric motors with around 200 kW of power, this is about 268 horsepower.
This gives the new Mercedes Benz Concept EQA a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of around 5 seconds, the car features 368 lb-ft of torque. It comes with two drive modes, Sport and Sport Plus that provide improved power and torque.
The Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA, which will make its World Premiere at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt (September 2017), demonstrates how the EQ strategy can be introduced to the compact class. Featuring one electric motor at the front axle and one at the rear, the electric athlete has a system output of over 200 kW. The drive characteristics can be altered by varying the permanent all-wheel drive’s front to rear torque distribution. The Concept EQA shows which program has been selected on a unique virtual radiator grille.
At the same time, the Concept EQA is another example of the logical evolution of the Sensual Purity design idiom: sharp edges and lines have been significantly reduced. One example of the new electric aesthetic is the light technology which features laser fibers. Here a laser-activated medium is embedded in the center of a fiber-optic cable. The eye-catching spiral-shaped light signet underlines the electric concept, its design evoking the copper windings of an electric motor and the animation visualizing electrical impulses.
