My OH is a MB fangirl.The fact it is a conversation of an ICE shows in the boot size of just 340 litres, presumably batteries are under it rather than a skateboard design? That is similar to Zoe so hardly justifies the "SUV" label.

For fans of German cars the VW ID4 is probably more practical as has a far bigger boot - 540 litres.
But choice is good and some people seem to only buy Mercedes. Can't fathom why after our experience of breaking down in the B250e a while ago...
She had an EQC for a weekend test drive.
Like the EQA it's a modified vehicle from their present range, the GLC, I think.
We both thought it was quite good, certainly for motorway cruising and A-roads.
Unfortunately, a bit of spirited driving on local B-roads showed it to be the biggest pile of **** imagineable. Centre of gravity far too high, handles like a carthorse.
I'll assume that the EQA will be the same compromised nonsense.
I'd imagine MB will be the first of the German legacy car-makers to go bankrupt. The future is now, not in a couple of decades.
