2025 Mercedes-Benz EQA spy footage

Mercedes-Benz has been spotted testing a compact electric sedan with a coupe-like design that will likely end up as an electric alternative to the CLA-Class.

It’s not clear what it will be called, but if Mercedes sticks to its current naming practice, the sedan could be called EQA, in which case the current EQA compact electric crossover sold overseas would need to be EQA SUV be renamed. something that will very likely happen next year when the current EQA is updated along with the associated GLA class.

These prototypes were recently spotted outside Mercedes headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany and are believed to be the first testers based on the automaker’s next-generation platform, designed for compact cars and dubbed MMA (Mercedes Modular Architecture ) referred to as.

The MMA platform will support both hybrid and all-electric powertrains and will be Mercedes’ last to accept internal combustion engines. All of Mercedes’ future platforms will be exclusively electric vehicles as the automaker prepares to go down the all-electric path by 2030.

The MMA platform is expected to spawn its first model around 2025, likely this sedan. The platform will ultimately be used for all Mercedes models up to and including the C-class segment. In addition, Mercedes will have the MB.EA platform for medium and large models, the AMG.EA for high-performance AMG models, and the Van.EA for light commercial vehicles.

The prototypes are heavily camouflaged, but the styling cues are similar to current Mercedes themes, although we might see some influences from this year’s Vision EQXX concept car, particularly when it comes to the side glass. Some of the technologies of the Vision EQXX should also make it into the new sedan.

The sedan will be part of a slimmed-down compact class that Mercedes calls Entry Luxury (above are Core Luxury and Top-End Luxury). Other models in the Entry Luxury group will reportedly include the CLA-Class, CLA-Class Shooting Brake, GLA-Class and GLB-Class, all of which will likely have an EQ-badged electric option.

In order to focus on more profitable high-end vehicles, the current A-Class and B-Class are expected to be phased out. The A-Class has already been discontinued in the USA
