Mercedes-Benz Vans celebrates a milestone of 25,000 battery-electric vans produced cumulatively since 2010 when a limited number of Vito E-Cell rolled off the production line.
The current lineup includes three models – Mercedes-Benz eVito (mid-size van and passenger Tourer version), Mercedes-Benz eSprinter (large van) and Mercedes-Benz EQV 300 (passenger van). The eVito entered the market in 2017, the eSprinter in 2019, while the EQV in 2020.
The next step will be the introduction of the all-new small-size vans: Mercedes-Benz eCitan and Mercedes-Benz EQT in 2022 (both closely related to the all-new Renault Kangoo Van E-TECH Electric and Nissan Townstar). Initially, the EQT will be a 5-seater, followed by a 7-seater in 2023.
This will allow electrifying the entire lineup of commercial vehicles, as all models will have battery-electric versions. According to the German manufacturer, by the end of the decade, the company will be ready to become fully electric “wherever market conditions permit.”
