Mercedes-Benz reveals the technical data of the eSprinter, its new electric van

After presenting the new range of Sprinter vans at the beginning of the year, which already included an all-electric version, Mercedes-Benz has revealed all the details of its new electric van for urban distribution.

The new Mercedes eSprinter will offer a range of up to 150 kilometers (93 miles) and a maximum payload of 1,000 kg (2,200 lbs). With a length of 5.9 meters and 3.9 meters between axes, the eSprinter offers a load capacity of 10.5 cubic meters.

The German automaker will offer the electric van with two levels of autonomy: 41 kWh for 115 kilometers (71 miles)​ of autonomy for the entry-level version or 55 kWh for a maximum range of 150 km (93 miles). Although we might think that it is a relatively low range of autonomy compared to the latest electric vehicles, the company says that the range is ideal for "urban traffic."

The battery powers an electric motor with a power of 84 kW (112 horsepower) and a torque of up to 300 Nm, with a maximum speed limited to 80 km / h in order to maximize the battery range. It is also possible to increase the limit to 120 km / h when we need a higher top speed to the detriment of the autonomy of the vehicle. The charging time will be between six to eight hours, depending on the version, unless you use a fast charge, in which case the time needed to recover 80% of the range will be reduced to just 45 minutes.

Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, noted:

“Electrification of the commercial fleet follows our conviction that the future belongs to electric drive systems, especially in inner-city traffic. We have already shown with the eVito that we are serious about the implementation. Now we are going a step further with the eSprinter. Our electric drive systems are also competitive in larger vehicle segments – especially regarding the total cost of ownership which is important for our commercial costumers”

Mercedes-Benz Vans has not revealed the price of the eSprinter electric version. Mercedes-Benz Vans commercial vehicle division has made a significant investment of 150 million euros to electrify its entire range of products.
