The German automaker expanded its EV lineup with an LCV-based minivan fit not just for urban environments but also for those who like to go camping and have a power source available.
Developed together with Renault, the EQT boasted a higher level of comfort and amenities, on par with Mercedes' customers' demands. Even though it wasn't a luxury vehicle, it still provided more than just an MPV transformed from a utility van.
The EQT sported a front fascia that tried to resemble those installed on the rest of the EQ range, although not as fancy. It still featured two LED daytime running lights enclosed in the headlights and a reversed trapezoidal grille between headlamps. Moreover, the lower bumper featured side scoops slightly taller than the air intake that they flanked. Still, the car didn't need that much cooling area since it was electric, so most of it was just decoration. From its profile, the tall greenhouse provided generous window areas on the sides. To access the vehicle, customers could use the regular front doors and the side sliding ones. Finally, at the back, a wide tailgate provided generous access to the trunk area.
Inside, Mercedes installed a neat-looking dashboard with rounded, waved shapes. Atop the center stack, between the round central vents, the automaker placed the screen for the MBUX infotainment unit. The high-mounted seats were typical for an LCV and also comfortable. At the back, there were three individual seats that customers could slide, fold or remove, depending on their needs.
Power was entrusted to a 90 kW (121 hp) motor that sent its torque to the front wheels only. It was fed by a battery pack with a usable capacity of 45 kWh.
