Mercedes-Benz All-Electric EQA Concept Takes A Tour Of Sicily

In the next couple of years, Mercedes-Benz will start deliveries of its first all-electric C-segment car. Previewed by the Concept EQA last year, it is currently under development and, to help promote it, the German marque took the fully-functional concept to the rustic countryside of Sicily.

Unlike many concept cars, the EQA actually runs and its futuristic design juxtaposes the rugged coastline and classic architecture found throughout the island. Even if you’re not a fan of electric vehicles, it’s hard to deny that Merc’s concept has an appealing exterior design that should be more than enough to attract customers.

Mercedes-Benz has yet to finalize powertrain specifications for the production car, but the concept boasted more than 270 hp and came with a permanent all-wheel drive system and a 60 kWh battery offering a range of roughly 248 miles (400 km).

Last month, Mercedes held a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron and confirmed that the EQA will be built at its plant in Hambach.

The EQA will be the second vehicle to launch under the EQ label, following in the footsteps of the EQC electric crossover. By 2022, more than eight more vehicles will be added to the EQ family, including Smart models and large SUVs.
