Now, EQA, a mass-market model of Mercedes EV, has been announced. It is based on GLA and is almost the same size as GLA. The output is 190ps in European specifications, and the price overseas seems to be around 5 million yen with EQA250, but the price in Japan is undecided.
The EQC, which was released earlier, was not popular in terms of design due to its huge size, and there was also an atmosphere that Benz Japan was not seriously trying to sell. Originally, EQA has become smaller in size, so it seems that it is easy to accept in terms of design, but considering the spread of infrastructure and EV in Japan, it seems that it was still a little early at present.
Tesla has not disclosed the number of units sold in Japan, but in reality, the total number of all models is about 1,300 units a year (2019/4 to 2020/3). Mercedes has 65,000 units, VW has 45,000 units, and Porsche has 7,700 units. Annual sales of 1,300 units in Japan are a little more than Ferrari 982 units. How much will EQA sell in Japan, an underdeveloped EV country?
