On tests, the new electric crossovers Mercedes EQA and EQB

During the test races, prototypes of German Mercedes EQA and EQB crossovers, which are equipped with fully electric engines, were noticed. In the company’s lineup, they will be located below the existing EQC crossover.

A team of engineers from the German brand are testing prototypes of two of their future novelties – we are talking about electric crossovers EQA and EQB. Both new models had a slight camouflage at the front and rear to conceal design changes compared to the conventional GLA and GLB crossovers on which they are based.

 EQA and EQB received new headlights and taillights along with a closed false radiator grille – the same grill was on the EQC crossover.

We also expect some changes in the bumpers, along with the obvious elimination of exhaust pipes. In the salons of new products should not be any major changes.

Judging by the small amount of camouflage that was on these prototypes, this probably means that the official presentation of these models will take place soon. Mercedes has already announced that the EQA crossover will be introduced in 2020, and the EQB will go on sale in 2021. This does not necessarily mean that the latter will debut next year, most likely the car will be shown online at the end of 2020.

 It is unclear what range these two will offer, but the 2017 EQ A three-door electric hatchback concept could travel 400 kilometers on a single charge – it was equipped with a 60 kWh lithium-ion battery. Shawkar had two electric motors, four-wheel drive and a total power of 268 hp. (500 Nm). This was enough to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in about five seconds.
