Mercedes-Benz proclaims its ‘green’ EQV ready for production

21-08-2019 12:40
German automotive giant Mercedes-Benz has premiered the final production version of its all-electric minivan called the EQV. The car is functionally identical to its diesel-powered counterpart, offering seats for up to eight people and a variety of interior layouts.

German automotive giant Mercedes-Benz has premiered the final production version of its all-electric minivan called the EQV. The car is functionally identical to its diesel-powered counterpart, offering seats for up to eight people and a variety of interior layouts.

Moving from the concept to the assembly line, the EQV has lost some of its cooler features, but got to keep the uniquely styled wheels and front grille. There are emblems on the wheel arches stating the environmentally clean status of the car, and there is a power socket concealed in the front apron.

Open the door, and the all-electric MPV looks no different from the standard V-Class: there is an advanced multimedia system with a 10-inch display and smartphone support, but that is about it. Curiously, the engine start button is no longer there: the battery minivan needs an ignition key to get moving.

The powertrain is rated at 204 hp (152 kW) and 362 Newton-meters (267 pound-feet) of torque. Drawing power from a large 100-kWh battery, it can take you 400 kilometers (250 miles) away in one go. The top speed is 160 km/h (99 mph), which is actually comparable with what the diesel-powered V250 d can do.

The MPV will be exhibited at the IAA Frankfurt show on September 12-22, 2019. Prices remain unannounced, but rumors say they are close to €70,000.
