Charging batteries has never been this easy: whether at home with the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox or out and about at numerous charging stations such as at shopping centres or service stations.

Charging at home

With the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox Home, your home becomes a charging station: thanks to the powerful AC charging system the EQA charges at up to 11 kW (3-phase) here – and thus many times faster than via a conventional household socket. With the intelligent wallbox from innogy (eBox smart or professional), you also have the option of easily controlling or exporting your charging data via the associated app.

Charging on the move

A short break on the road: with the Mercedes me Charge digital service, you have access to a wide range of public charging stations across Europe - including IONITY's fast charging stations, where you can charge your EQA from 10 to 80 percent at up to 100 kW* in around 30 minutes**. Furthermore, with Mercedes me Charge, your charging is always green throughout Europe. Mercedes-Benz uses high-quality certificates of origin to ensure that electricity from renewable energy sources is fed into the grid for charging volumes that flow via Mercedes me Charge.

* Maximum charging capacity at DC charging station with 400 volt supply, 300 A current; the maximum charging capacity depends on various factors, such as ambient and battery temperature and the state of charge of the battery when charging is started.

** Minimum charging time from 10 to 80% under optimal conditions at a DC charging station with 400 volt supply, 300 A current; the charging time may vary depending on various factors, such as ambient and battery temperature and the use of additional auxiliary consumers, e.g. heating.

Important questions on electric driving.

    • Real electric range

      Why is the real electric range often less than specified?

      The electric range varies depending on individual driving behaviour, the route profile and environmental factors. You can travel on electric power further if you use ECO Assist to drive with foresight and take advantage of the recuperation and/or gliding function. Auxiliary equipment such as seat heating or the climate control system also has an impact on range, as do particularly cold or hot ambient temperatures.

    • AC and DC charging technology

      What is the difference between AC and DC charging technology?

      Basically, the batteries of electrified vehicles can only be charged with direct current (DC). However, all household sockets, the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox, the innogy eBox professional, the innogy eBox smart and most public charging stations supply alternating current (AC), as do "high-voltage sockets". To make charging possible, vehicles are equipped with an on-board charger – an AC/DC rectifier. It converts the alternating current into the required direct current. It facilitates charging capacities of 2.3 kW to 11 kW – depending on the AC source.

    • Environmental friendliness

      How environmentally friendly are electric cars really?

      How environmentally friendly the vehicle is used depends greatly on your driving and charging behaviour. Among other things, the electricity you charge the vehicle with also plays a significant role, i.e. is it actually being charged with "green" electricity or an energy mix? Whenever you charge in Europe via Mercedes me Charge, Mercedes-Benz ensures subsequent offset with green electricity. In this way, you are already reducing your personal CO2 balance today and making a contribution to the energy transition.
      Even in private households, a green electricity contract is often just a few clicks away.
