The electric engine is powered by a 43 kWh lithium-ion battery pack installed under the cargo space. The e-Crafter can be recharged quickly at public CCS charging stations. The CCS (Combined Charging System) rapid recharge system offers a capacity of 40 kW. That means it can recharge the lithium-ion battery up to 80% in about 45 minutes. The optional AC devices allow recharging the new e-Crafter in approx. 5 hours and 20 minutes. That and the autonomy of up to 170 kilometers make the e-Crafter an efficient urban delivery vehicle.
