Mercedes-Benz presented the production version of the EQV electric minivan, which has a 90 kWh battery and a range of up to 405 kilometers. We bring you the first video of “the first premium EV minivan in the world”.
In early March, at the Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz unveiled a pre-series electric version for the V-Class minivan. Almost half a year later, the German manufacturer’s engineers completed the development, so Mercedes presented online the final version of the minivan, just days before the Frankfurt Motor Show.
In the place of the standard car’s 2.0-liter diesel unit Mercedes-Benz installed a front-axle mounted electric motor that generates 150 kW, the equivalent of 204 horsepower, while the torque is rated at 362 Nm. The maximum speed mentioned by the manufacturer is 160 km / h.
The Mercedes-Benz EQV is equipped with a 100 kWh battery that offers a net capacity of 90 kWh. As we’ve already mentioned, official autonomy is estimated at 405 kilometers. The battery supports charging speeds of up to 11 kW in the case of AC charging and up to 110 kW in the case of the use of DC direct charging stations.
For the moment, Mercedes-Benz did not provide details on EQV’s availability or prices, but the German car maker did publish the first video teaser of the electric van. Enjoy the trailer below!
