Eight seats, up to 405 km of range and 204 horsepower: the Mercedes EQV is set up as the flagship of the sparse niche of electric minivans. The zero-emission van can now be ordered at a very salty price.
If you plan to drive your (very) large family in an electric vehicle, prepare your wallet. Orders for the long version of the Mercedes EQV are open and you will have to pay at least 71,388 euros to buy it (departure price in Germany including 19% VAT). A high price justified by the high-end characteristics of the van and its positioning for taxis, VTC and private luxury shuttles.
Capable of carrying eight people, the EQV carries a battery of 90 kWh useful (nominal 100 kWh) offering up to 405 km of autonomy. Its 150 kW (204 hp) and 362 Nm of torque engine is flanged to 140 km / h as standard and 160 km / h as an option. Authorizing up to 3.5 tonnes of gross vehicle weight, the van has a logically high average consumption in the combined cycle of 26.4 kWh / 100 km.
The EQV is also well equipped on recharging since it accepts up to 110 kW in DC for a charge of 10 to 80% in 45 minutes on a fast charging station. The on-board AC charger tolerates 11 kW for a full refill in 9 to 10 hours on a wallbox. The CCS Combo format connector is hidden under the left side of the front bumper. The 100% electric van will be produced in the Vitoria plant in the north of Spain, which already assembles models of the same category Vito and Class V.
