The stars of the Mercedes-Benz range

Mercedes-Benz are well known for their luxury cars of just about every shape and size. From the classy yet compact Mercedes-Benz A-Class to vast limousines such as the S-Class, drivers love their comfort, technology, and premium nature. Mercedes has also embraced the new-age of EVs with some excellent electric cars that share the same aspirational values.

For those looking for a zero-emission compact SUV with plenty of charisma, the Mercedes-Benz EQA could be the ideal fit. Perfectly proportioned for doing battle in busy highstreets and multistorey car parks, this car is Mercedes’ answer to the BMW iX1 and Audi Q4. The front-wheel drive EQA 250+ delivers pleasing EV range with its 73.9kWh battery enabling up to 346 miles. Grippy all-wheel drive can be had in the EQA 300, while punchy 292bhp performance is yours via the EQA 350. Despite the added performance, range remains a highly usable 260 miles. The 350 model is also available with 4MATIC four-wheel drive in case you happen to do a lot of off-roading.

Need a bit more space and want a distinctive design?

The Mercedes-Benz EQB with its fashionably square proportions is a great choice.  Plenty of space is on offer for passengers – good news for those with rapidly growing children – and the 495-litre boot is bigger than that of a Volvo EX40. The real ace up the sleeve of this EV, is a deployable third row of seats, meaning up to seven can enjoy the high-quality interior – and is only one of a handful of 7-seater EVs available at the moment. Three varieties of EQB are available with a 250+ providing up to 320 miles of range, a mid-range 300 with all-wheel drive, or a higher performance 350 model. A 10-80% charge via a 100kW charger takes around 30 minutes.

If you’re looking to get on the luxury ladder

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatchback is a good place to start. This petite premium hatchback offers the Mercedes ethos in a package that’s perfect for the urban sprawl. All variants can be had in snazzy AMG Line trim with a petrol or diesel engine being your prerogative. The A250e plug-in hybrid is a particularly efficient model and attracts lower Benefit in Kind than the standard petrol variant.

If the A Class is tempting, but you have the need for more space, the quirky CLA Shooting Brake is the teardrop-shaped estate that offers the same attributes of the hatch, but with a generous boot and unique design. You are also spoilt for choice when it comes to engines with the petrol and diesel derivatives being joined by the 250e plug-in hybrid offering up to 47 miles of EV range. Don’t have that need for space, but still want to stand out from the crowd? The CLA coupe is a four-door saloon based on the very same platform. Spicy AMG variants which match the hatchback are also yours for the taking.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC is an ideal family car

With plenty of space for passengers with two or four legs, all while achieving that quality look and feel the German marque is synonymous with. A range of petrol and diesel engines are yours to choose from, but a petrol plug-in hybrid and a rarified diesel plug-in hybrid might just deliver the best of both worlds. Both offer an impressive 80 miles of EV range, something that makes the diesel option in particular ideal of electrified city driving and efficient motorway miles.

There are a variety of larger models available, as you’d come to expect from Mercedes, with the EQE saloon and SUV, and the EQS saloon and SUV models all offering a luxurious experience. The EQS is the marque’s flagship electric model and the new 2024 update is due to offer a range of up to 511 miles!
