After seeing the Concept EQV at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, is now time to be impressed by the EQV – or, as Mercedes-Benz Vans describes it: “its first electric vehicle that is positioned equally for private and commercial purposes.” The electric van will make its world debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show and will be put on sale shortly after.
The 2020 EQV is powered by an electric drive train called eATS situated on the front axle under the dynamic front end of the car with a charging connection in the bumper. It delivers a total of 150 kW and ensures a maximum range of 405 kilometers. The electric motor takes its juice from a lithium ion battery with a capacity of 90 kWh. Top speed is not impressive, but is ok for an electric van: 160 km/h.
Another cool feature of the EQV is the specially designed MBUX system. With a 10-inch media display it offers details on the charging current, departure time, energy flow and consumption histogram.
In terms of design the EQV remains faithful to the concept we’ve seen in Geneva and features black panel radiator grille with chrome fins, a clear side profile with specific, EQ design, lightweight, 18-inch wheels.
