Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the second car to join its fully-electric EQ lineup: the EQA 250 crossover.

A sibling to the EQC concept unveiled earlier last year, the new EQA also derives from Mercedes-Benz’s very own GLA, taking overall design cues from crossover but receiving unique tweaks such including more tapered headlights, a more streamlined grille under an illuminated crossbar, redesigned taillights, aerodynamic wheels, and other small changes to the bumpers and spoilers.

As for its powertrain, at launch the EQA will only be available in one configuration, holding a 66.5 kWh floor-mounted battery pack and a front motor pushing out 188 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. It can charge at rates of up to 100 kW on a DC fast charger and fill up from 10 percent to 80 percent capacity in just 30 minutes, with a maximum range of 264 miles on a full charge, although a second model will be released soon after with an extended range of 310 miles.

The new Mercedes-Benz EQA will be available in Europe sometime this year, with a starting price of €47,540 EUR in Germany, which is rouhgly $57,620 USD. The automaker has yet to make a decision on whether the car will get an American release though, so those interested should definitely stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Ares Design has modified a Tesla Model S into a convertible.
