Mercedes continues its expansion of its EV plans with the debut of the Concept EQ A at Frankfurt.

A year after announcing plans to launch an all-new sub-brand dedicated to battery-electric vehicles, Mercedes-Benz will charge into the Frankfurt Motor Show next week with the Concept EQ A, a long-range EV set to go up against the likes of the Tesla Model 3 and Chevrolet Bolt.
