Technically, the EQV is Mercedes’ third big car powered by electricity after the eVito and eSprinter, but the Germans say this is the “first electric vehicle that is positioned equally for private and commercial purposes.” Prices for the model in Germany start at € 71,388.

When the EQV was announced in fall 2019, the model came with a battery that gave it a range rated at up to 405 km (251 miles). The EQV 300 takes that number a bit higher, to 418 km (260 km). The electric motor spinning the wheels is good for 204 hp and 362 Nm of torque, the same as announced before.

The battery can be recharged from 10 to 80 percent in 45 minutes using a fast charging station – the EQV is equipped as standard with a maximum charging capacity of 110 kW. The electric drivetrain of the van can ensure a top speed of up to 160 kph (99 mph), depending on configuration.

Being a van, the EQV comes with a number of seating options. As standard there are six individual seats, but that number can be increased to seven or even eight by adding either extra individual seats or benches.

"Whether for the environmentally conscious family, the recreational athlete or as a shuttle vehicle - our EQV offers superior driving performance, long range as well as a generous range of space - and all this locally emission-free,"
said in a statement Andreas Böger, Head of Sales of New Vehicles Mercedes-Benz Transporter and Vans Germany.
