Now that the EQA is rolling off the assembly line and to people's drives/garages, when can we expect a sub-forum on this model?
I tested one for a short distance today and thought it very competent.Happy to inform you had a test-drive this afternoon and am now considering it.
Again I think a sub-forum is only right, particularly as there is one for the EQS which hasn't been released yet!
Watch Munro on YouTube. He dismantled the Ford Mach e.We test drove one recently along with the Q4, Q5 and Mach E. coming from a GLC, the EQA felt too small ( in my wife’s opinion) and the interior quality was below that of the GLC.
My favourite was definitely the mustang though!
How many times have you charged to 100% and what is the Miles to travel, as mine charges to 100% only goes to 230 miles well below 250 miles as per the EQA brochure.Having owned my EQA for exactly a month now, and driven it 1600 miles in that time, I can assure you the range is fine, as is the boot.
My wife had a B class before and the boot is the same size. The only difference is that there is only a very shallow under floor compartment, and contrary to online comments it does fit both the granny charger and type 2 cable under there.
The fast charging is fantastic. On my way to the Office in Brighton, I drove from Calne in Wiltshire to Cobham services on the M25 and plugged into the new Ionity fast charger. I then went to Greggs and hadn't even finished my Bacon Baguette and cup of tea before the Mercedes Me app told me the car was charged and at 100%. I am going to have to cut down to the Bacon Bap.
When we collected the car from Mercedes Swindon, it was at 100% and showing a range of 254 miles. We have driven it using the D Auto setting and the range has steadily increased, and varies between 260 - 280 miles. I have found the range indicator to be fairly accurate, but I don't hoon around like a YouTube tester. The record potential I have seen is 281 miles as per the attached photo. The D Auto setting uses coasting and regen and automatically starts to slow using regen when approaching speed limits.
IF you are thinking of getting one, I would thoroughly recommend it. I have been massively impressed with this car. I have owned over 75 cars in my driving life, (Including Rolls Royce and Bentley). I traded in my Bentley Continental GTC for this Mercedes EQA 250 View attachment 148224 and have found this one the most impressive for just how good it is at what it does. View attachment 148224
Interesting comment re the interior quality. I currently drive an e class estate well specced inc the full widescreen, 4matic and air suspension and am about to receive an EQC which I thought even better than the e to drive and the e is a pleasure with the 9 speed box. However I was disappointed in the interior trim, yes it is good but in comparison to the e not good enough. The widescreen is narrower, the awful black piano central console cannot be changed for the wood trim yet the door panel can be🙄, there are only switches to lower the rear seats in the boot not at the side of the seats, no carpeting on the back of the tailgate just all plastic and these were the obvious ones yet the EQC is still dearer than the top e class I could have ordered. I anticipate all this will irritate me greatly and am just hoping the EV element will be enough to overcome my irritation. I am fortunate that I can swap after 18mths so I anticipate ordering an EQE as soon as I can.We test drove one recently along with the Q4, Q5 and Mach E. coming from a GLC, the EQA felt too small ( in my wife’s opinion) and the interior quality was below that of the GLC.
My favourite was definitely the mustang though!
Hi,How many times have you charged to 100% and what is the Miles to travel, as mine charges to 100% only goes to 230 miles well below 250 miles as per the EQA brochure.
Not a good sign for my EQA battery.... down already from the list of 250 miles for 100% charge.
Hi Mike,Eduardo, thanks for the information, very interesting that your car is also charging to 250 miles plus.... has that been always since collecting it the first day... What chargers have you used...
home charger 7 kW and public 50 kW.. Been into the dealers to get my wireless charger which had a faulty fan that sounded like Nividia graphics card in a home computer on full pelt.. fixed
now, they said it was down to my driving and not being gentle in the manner of driving rather more like my old car... used Instavolt and been impressed with charging speed, early days..
the charger bag CSS are in the break downable crate box in boot, 3 pin granny charger in garage. Another issue with Mercedes is my Premium Plus is missing U19 Augmented Reality and
549 MBux multimedia High... have the 548 but also HUD, never told this when car was being built that there was an parts shortage.. really piffed with the Dealer; they claimed they did not know
until the car came and looked at the sheet of options... too late. Apparently no more Premium Plus will be built for some time according to the Dealer.
Is your car Premium Plus? My build date was 1 week June.
