The eSprinter will be available as a van with a gross vehicle weight of 3,500 kilograms in a high-roof version. Its electric drive drives the front wheels and, like the entry-level diesel unit, produces 85 kW with a torque of up to 300 Newton meters.
The battery capacity of the eSprinter is configurable in two variants. It can be selected according to the application - depending on whether a larger range or a higher payload is prioritized.
In the more powerful version, four battery units are installed, which corresponds to an installed battery capacity of 55 kWh (usable 47 kWh) with a range of 168 km and a maximum payload of 891 kg. The second variant has an installed battery capacity of 41 kWh (usable 35 kWh), a range of 120 km, and with a payload of 1,045 kg, it is almost at the level of the conventionally powered Sprinter. In both cases, the charging volume of 11 m³ can be used without restriction, since the batteries are installed under the loading floor.
With the eSprinter, customers also have another connectivity-capable electric vehicle at their disposal, since the serial version already has the built-in connectivity module. This means that the advantages of digitized eVan management can also be used for the eSprinter. This means that important information about charging the eSprinter is available, the air conditioning of the van can be activated without affecting the range.
The gross price of the eSprinter starts at EUR 64,141 (including 19% VAT). It includes a maintenance package for four years, which covers the costs of maintenance work, and the Mercedes-Benz battery warranty for 160,000 km or eight years.
The production of the eSprinter at the Düsseldorf plant has been running since mid-December 2019. The electric version is manufactured on the same production line as the diesel engine Sprinter. The production systems were designed in such a way that both conventionally powered and fully electric vehicles can be manufactured on a common production line.
