2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA teased ahead of debut later this year

Mercedes-Benz is set to debut its all-electric EQA sometime before the end of this year after the model completed its winter testing near Sweden's Arctic Falls. (Correction: This article originally stated the EQA will appear in Geneva next month. Rather, some new EQ-branded plug-in hybrids will appear there.) The EQA will enter the Mercedes-Benz line-up as an electric alternative to the GLA small SUV, built on the same MFA II platform as the A-Class, B-Class, GLA, GLB, and CLA variants.

Exclusive: Holden to keep its historical car collection in Australia

EXCLUSIVE Holden’s priceless collection of up to 70 classic and historically significant cars – including the first and last vehicles it manufactured locally – will remain in Australia and not sent to Detroit, as some fans had feared. While Holden is yet to announce exactly where the vehicles will be stored and if the public will be able to view them, CarAdvice has been told there are no plans to export the vehicles to join the global General Motors collection in Detroit.
