Little is known about the model but the teaser image shows the concept will have a signal bar grille with an illuminated Mercedes logo. The concept also has distinctive headlights and a black appliqué on the hood.
That’s not much to go on but previous reports have suggested the concept will be a five-seat hatchback that rides on the new MEA platform.
Mercedes recently confirmed plans to build an assortment of entry-level EQ models at its plant in Rastatt, Germany. The EQ A is expected to be one of the first and it could arrive as early as 2019.
Destined to battle the BMW i3, the EQ A will reportedly have a single electric motor that powers the front wheels. The company could eventually introduce a performance variant which adds a rear electric motor for additional power and all-wheel drive.
The EQ A is expected to cost around £35,000 ($45,368 / €38,255) and become one of the company’s best-selling electric vehicles.
