The new Mercedes-Benz eSprinter is the electrified pioneer of the large van segment. In addition to optimized efficiency, the new eSprinter offers its customers a multitude of technical innovations that make driving more convenient and a multitude of commercial uses cases more sustainable.
Depending on the options available in their markets, customers have a choice of two body styles and lengths as well as three different sizes of battery.
“The new Mercedes-Benz eSprinter underlines our claim to ‘Lead in Electric’ and kicks off the next stage of our electrification strategy. Its versatility and flexibility make the new eSprinter the ideal vehicle for a wide range of applications,” said Mathias Geisen, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans.
According to the German auto maker, the new eSprinter will initially be available as a long panel van and high roof in the U.S. and Canada with a 113 kilowatt hour (kWh) battery (usable capacity), while European markets will also receive a battery of 56 kWh as well as 81 kWh.
“In addition,” it revealed in a statement posted on its website, “the new eSprinter will also be available as an open model for the first time at a later date. This makes the eSprinter an attractive vehicle for numerous new industries as well as for upfitters.”
Equipped with the largest battery available, the electric range, based on a simulation using the WLTP cycle, is up to 440, kilometers. The simulated range based on the WLTP city cycle is up to 5301,2kilometers. This extended range makes the vehicle ideal for both daily urban use as well as longer distances.
“The lithium/iron phosphate technology eliminates the use of any cobalt or nickel and is ideal for light commercial vehicles due to durability. An active thermal management improves the efficiency; a heat pump is standard. Offering a cargo capacity of up to 14 cubic meters and with a permissible gross vehicle weight of up to 4.25 tons, the rear-wheel-drive eSprinter is as practical as its sibling with an internal combustion engine,” it added.
