2024 Mercedes-Benz EQA sedan spied for the first time

The new EQA sedan will slot below the electric C-Class sedan, which has also been confirmed by Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes-Benz is said to be testing a new compact electric sedan, images of which have been released online. According to reports, the new compact electric sedan could be called the EQA, in line with the brand's EV nomenclature.

Mercedes-Benz introduced the EQA last year in the form of an electric crossover. However, the German car brand is now said to be planning another body style for the same. Spy images of the Mercedes-Benz EQA electric sedan showcase a completely camouflaged prototype undergoing testing in Stuttgart, Germany.

The new EQA sedan will slot below the electric C-Class sedan, which has also been confirmed by Mercedes-Benz. The EQA sedan will also be very different compared to its electric crossover counterpart and will feature a different architecture. Reports state that the EQA sedan could be underpinned by the brand's MMA (Mercedes-Benz Modular Architecture) platform, which is set to be previewed in 2024. The MMA platform was first announced in 2020 and is said to underpin compact & mid-size cars.

The EQA sedan could be the first among a range of models underpinned by the new platform. The MMA platform will be an 'electric-first' platform, but will also be able to accommodate IC engines. The MMA platform will also debut the brand's new infotainment unit, the MB.OS - an in-house developed system meant to cut down costs. The MB.OS will first debut on EVs, before being used on ICE models and should arrive sometime during the middle of the decade.
