Mercedes-Benz aims to have more than 10 all-electric new models on the market by the year 2022, the first of which will be the EQA (a GLC-sized zero-emissions crossover) green-lit for production in 2019 at the company’s Bremen plant.

Another vehicle in the brand’s new EQ all-electric sub-brand portfolio is bound to be an A-Class and Golf-sized hatchback with a zero-emissions powertrain and a range of around 400km - this is previewed by the latest concept premiering in Frankfurt, the EQA.

The car features two electric motors, one on each axle, to provide 270 horsepower to all four wheels, and comes with a virtual grille that changes colour depending on your driving modes, Sport or Sport Plus for example.

It also evolves further the Sensual Purity design language that Mercedes-Benz is pushing now, having first introduced the cues on concepts such as the Concept A sedan we saw earlier this year at the Shanghai motor show.
