The fully-electric Mercedes-Benz EQV people mover has been revealed ahead of a public debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
Based on the V-Class, the EQV was revealed in concept form earlier this year. The production version is fitted with a 90kWh lithium-ion battery that drives an electric motor which produces 150kW of power and 362Nm of torque.
The electric drivetrain (eATS) including a fixed gear ratio transmission is on the front axle.
When the battery is fully charged, the claimed driving range is an impressive 405 kilometres. The top speed is rated at 160 km/h.
The EQV's battery pack can recharge to 80 per cent capacity in under 45 minutes using a 110kW DC fast charger.
While on the battery, it’s installed in the space below the floor so it doesn't negatively impact on interior space.
Mercedes-Benz will offer the EQV in two body lengths starting with a 5370mm version with a 3430mm wheelbase, alternatively, there’s a shorter 5140mm variant with a 3200mm wheelbase. Buyers will be able to spec the van with six, seven or eight seats.
To differentiate the EQV it gets a unique black panel radiator grille with chrome fins, a clear side profile, 18-inch alloy wheels and EQ badges.
On the inside, buyers get the MBUX infotainment system displayed on a 10-inch touchscreen, a midnight blue leather-look dash and rose gold accents.
