The German automaker will postpone the presentation of its electric car for several months.

The public premiere of the new electric crossover Mercedes EQA was scheduled for the end of this year. However, the coronavirus pandemic has made its own adjustments: the debut of the electric car was postponed to next year.

According to media reports, the timing of the presentation of the battery compact-cross had to be shifted by about six months – not earlier than the spring of 2021. The main problem that the Germans had to face was supply disruptions to batteries. Where exactly the brand buys batteries for its electric car is not reported.

Recall that the serial EQA electric crossover will be a co-platform for the Mercedes-Benz GLA. Externally, the new electric car can be recognized by the original bumpers, spectacular taillights linked to each other by an LED strip, and stylish multi-spoke wheels.

Without recharging, such a “green” crossover will travel up to 320 kilometers. Such a mileage will be provided by a powerful electric motor and a set of lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 60 kWh.
