At the IAA Mobility 2023 show in Monaco, Mercedes unveiled the new Concept CLA created to anticipate some contents that we will find within its future electric range. The concept, in fact, is based on the new Mercedes Modular Architecture (MMA) platform which will be used for future “Entry Luxury” models.
As we know, already for a while Mercedes is carrying out tests of the future series version of the electric CLA. Now, a new spy video from walkoARTvideos allows you to see the car on the road again. Obviously, the car still appears heavily camouflaged with films and false elements that try to hide the details of the design. In any case, under the camouflage, the car appears to have its final forms.
The images, however, allow us to take a new peek at some details of the new electric CLA. For example, up front we can see the design of the new headlights which feature a star-shaped light signature. Overall, however, the series model seems to present forms not too distant from those of the concept presented in Monaco in September.
Unfortunately, the video does not allow us to take a look at the interior. Surely, there will be a lot of technology with the latest evolution of the MBUX system.
As regards the technical specifications, the new electric CLA will be able to rely on the MMA platform (800V architecture). The car will certainly be proposed with different powertrains. For the moment we only know that the concept had a single 175 kW electric motor located on the rear axle. Mercedes should offer two types of batteries: the first with LFP (lithium-iron-phosphate) cells, while the second with silicon oxide anodes which allow for improved cell density. energy. The ability should be between 58 and 85 kWh.
Therefore, all that remains is to wait for further news. on the development of the new CLA which, however, should also be offered with endothermic engines.
