2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV Overview

The rapidly growing Mercedes EQ sub-brand combines the German marque’s traditional virtues of quality and technology with electric-only propulsion. The latest addition is the Mercedes-Benz EQV, an all-electric van based on the familiar Metris minivan which is already sold in the United States. Officially unveiled at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, the EQV is truly unique in offering electric power with the unrivaled passenger and cargo capacity of a van - even EV giant Tesla lacks an equivalent.

The EQV utilizes a 90-kWh battery that provides a range of around 250 miles and can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in less than 45 minutes. A full charge from empty can be completed in just under 10 hours, so you’d better like your sleep if you run the battery dry after a full day’s worth of commuting. An electric motor delivers 204 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque - hardly breathtaking numbers - but considering the role of a van, they appear perfectly adequate. Flat out, it will be able to reach 99 mph.

Like the EQC SUV, the EQV features a similar sealed-off grille design. Riding on 18-inch wheels, it’s certainly one of the smarter vans around. Although still unconfirmed for the local market, the EQV will be offered elsewhere with two wheelbase lengths, the longer one stretching to 135 inches. It can seat up to eight passengers and accommodate 36.4 cubic feet of their luggage. Pretty nifty for a zero-emissions vehicle. Pricing hasn’t yet been announced and the EQV’s arrival stateside remains up in the air, but with the EQC SUV arriving in Q1 2020, we’re hopeful that the all-electric van will soon follow.
