Hi
I've just ordered a EQA 250 but am now a little concerned about what control you have over the charging process.
I was hoping to be able to programme the vehicle to charge during the night on cheaper electricity rates but am reading on EQC forums that that is not possible and that it starts charging when you plug it in, is this also the case with the EQA?

Not an EQA owner but Imwould be shocked if it was not the same. It can be controlled if you have a smart wall charger ie one that can be programmed. I understand that all in the UK have to be internet connected so you should be able to programme it via your wallbox .Speak e v forum has good advice on chargers.
It has not ended up being a major issue for me due to a good tarfiff from EDF for cheap rate all weekend and weds but I do occasionally have to go out at 10.40pm to plug it in when the rate switchs over or bite the bullet and pay the add 5 centimes between my cheap and my high rate which for occasional use is not too bif a diff in the scheme of things incl the cost of the car馃槅

Have the EQA 250 Prem + and Hypervolt 2.0, charge via Hypervolt, plug n play or schedule charging via Hypervolt 2.0 app works fine, also have solar pv array and can change the hypervolt settings via app for only Solar charging at 1.4kw
or for solar and house electric provider at whatever ampage setting you choose, 6amp to 32 amp all works fine, including putting in your day or night tariff sessions, for my Octopus Go for early morning charges; Octopus app or desktop UI all give your half hourly charge readings which you can confirm with Hypervolt charge readings for comparison. You have really no control from the Mercedes Me app when at home, out and about the Mercedes Me app, MBUX (when it can authenticate) or the Mercedes Me Charge card work, confirmed with BP Pulse and Instavolt.
4 hours on Octopus Go gives 28kw @ 5p which is great, range of 79 miles stated on app.
