Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the Concept EQV, an electric van concept that will enter production in 2020.
The Concept EQV is based on the facelifted V-Class. This is evident in its styling, which adapts the ICE-powered van for an EV future with a sleeker front bumper, EQ C style front grille, LED headlights, aerodynamic wheels, and a larger rear window.
Powering the electric concept is a front-mounted electric motor producing 150kW of power, which allows it to achieve a top speed of 159km/h. Energy comes from a 100kWh lithium-ion battery, permitting the EQV to travel up to 400km on a charge – Mercedes claims it can be charged to 62 per cent in just 15 minutes.
Inside, a touchscreen infotainment display sits atop the dashboard, running the German brand’s MBUX operating system. Other interior elements include blue LED ambient lighting, part-leather seats with blue Alcantara accents, and a number of EQ badges.
The Mercedes-Benz Concept EQV will make its public debut at the Geneva motor show. The German brand has confirmed that a production model will be shown off at the Frankfurt motor show this September.
