Mercedes-Benz A 250 e: No less than two A-Class models with EQ Power

Sep 14, 2019

The current generation of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is as youthful and dynamic as ever, but mature and comfortable like never before. Technologically, the A-Class not only leads the field with MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience - it also offers a number of functions that were previously the preserve of the luxury class. With the A 250 e (weighted fuel consumption 1.5-1.4 l/100 km, weighted CO2 emissions 34-33 g/km, weighted power consumption 15.0-14.8 kWh/100 km) [1] , the A 250 e Saloon (weighted fuel consumption 1.4 l/100 km, weighted CO2 emissions 33-32 g/km, weighted power consumption 14.8-14.7 kWh/100 km)1 and the B 250 e (weighted fuel consumption 1.6-1.4 l/100 km, weighted CO2 emissions 36-32 g/km, weighted power consumption 15.4-14.7 kWh/100 km)1, models in the compact car family with third-generation hybrid drive are now celebrating their premiere.

Alongside the compact saloon, the A-Class Saloon has been part of the compact car portfolio of Mercedes-Benz since 2018. A logical addition, because with the C, E and S-Class, Mercedes-Benz has more premium saloon competence than most other manufacturers. The A-Class Saloon benefits from its long rear end and beats the world record of Cd 0.22 originally established by the CLA Coupé. The A-Class is able to drive semi-autonomously in certain driving situations. It has driving assistance systems with cooperative driver support, and thus provides one of the highest levels of active safety in this segment with functions adopted from the S‑Class. MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are available on request.

For the compact models, the third-generation plug-in technology was adapted and scaled for the transverse engine. Electrically powered driving pleasure and everyday suitability are the main focus. The highlights of the models with EQ Power:

  • Electric range 74-77 km (NEDC)
  • Electric output 75 kW
  • System output 160 kW
  • System torque 450 Nm
  • Top speed 140 km/h (electric)/235 km/h (total; A-Class Compact Saloon)
  • Acceleration 0-100 km/h in 6.6 seconds (A-Class Compact Saloon)
  • Hardly any restrictions in the load compartment

The two A 250 e models can be charged with alternating or direct current. A corresponding vehicle socket is located in the right-hand side wall of the vehicles. This means that the compact plug-in hybrids can be charged at a 7.4 kW Wallbox with alternating current (AC) within 1 h 45 min from 10-100 percent SoC (Status of Charge and with For direct-current charging (DC) the battery can be charged from 10-80 percent SoC in around 25 minutes.

[1] The stated figures are the measured "NEDC CO2 figures" in accordance with Article 2 No. 1 Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/1153. The fuel consumption figures were calculated based on these figures. The range and the electrical consumption have been determined on the basis of Regulation (EC) No. 692/2008. A different value is applied in accordance with EmoG. A higher value may apply as the basis for calculating the motor vehicle tax.
