Mercedes-Benz has revealed the second model in its line of EQ all-electric vehicles… and it’s a van.

The EQV, as it is known, was previewed back at the Geneva motor show in March by the Concept EQV. Fortunately, the production car’s styling stays true to the concept’s, with LED headlights, an EQC-inspired grille, aerodynamic alloy wheels and a black rear spoiler.

Powering the van is a 90kWh lithium-ion battery (usable capacity, so 100kWh total), which drives a 150kW/362Nm electric motor mounted on the front axle. Range is estimated at 405km, with 110kW DC fast-chargers boosting the EQV from 0 to 80 per cent in 45 minutes.

Inside, there’s a 10.0-inch infotainment touchscreen mounted in the centre of the dashboard, running Mercedes’ MBUX system with ‘Hey Mercedes’ voice assistant support. The rest of the cabin carries over from the facelifted V-Class range, meaning six, seven or eight seats and a range of leather and aluminium trims.

The Mercedes-Benz EQV is set to make its debut at the Frankfurt motor show next month, ahead of a European market launch next year.
