Fresh spy photos have appeared on the Web showing a test prototype of an electric crossover. Apparently, the model is already in a serial body, and is undergoing winter testing of units.

The new electric crossover Mercedes-Benz EQA is preparing for the official presentation. Now the model is undergoing final tests on public roads in Scandinavia. Apparently, the company switched to testing the units in harsh winter conditions with high negative temperatures.

 The crossover is built on the new modular platform MFA II, created specifically for the possibility of using internal combustion engines and electric motors. The same platform is used for the new Mercedes-Benz GLA. Both models are also similar in design and concept: short overhangs, the same roof line, and a similar stern design. However, the front end should change significantly. There will be a fake radiator grille, new head optics and additional lighting.

 Mercedes-Benz EQA will be equipped with a fully electric installation, with as yet unknown characteristics. The cruising range will be at least 480 km on a full charge. Battery capacity is also not reported. Front-wheel drive and full.

The presentation of the electric crossover should take place next year. The cost and details of the complete sets are not yet reported.

Meanwhile, the updated Mercedes V-Class Marco Polo turned into a smart home on wheels. A restyled camper got access to a new digital interface, which made it even more technological.
