EQV is the latest member of the growing EQ family

The new all-electric Mercedes-Benz Concept EQV unveiled in Geneva is closer production than the usual concept cars. The German manufacturer didn’t say when sales could start, but the production version will debut in just six months at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

The electric MPV is based on the conventional version, but careful integration of the 100 kWh battery enabled not only to reaa ch range of up to 400 km (250 miles), but there is no change in ground clearance or interior space. The goal set by Daimler was to provide no compromise.

“The vehicle also offers the highest levels of interior comfort and maximum functionality, through features such as its versatile seating configurations. By installing individual seats or banks of seats, the six-seat concept vehicle can be reconfigured to offer seven or even eight seats. This means the Concept EQV can cover a wide range of uses. In private use, families or those who enjoy sporting activities benefit from the high degree of functionality and variability. In up-market people moving, the vehicle offers a compelling range of equipment and appointments as well as an extremely comfortable ride.”

We welcome also news that the EQV is equipped with a heat pump to lower energy consumption for heating.

Customers looking for a premium people mover finally will get a chance to switch to zero emission. Let’s check out the live photos and videos from the show.

Add another seat and I may be a customer.
Are we talking $100k here?

I also wonder why they removed a seat.

Because this car has always been available with 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 seats depending on the customer order.

That is too bad. VW and Renault have a 9 seat option for their vehicles with a similar size. 3+3+3, or 2+3+4.

That is about what the ICE version costs with premium interior and high powered engine.

Mercedes makes a pretty good van, and an ev one should just be better.
Spendy, but you pay for quality. I think it’s worth it.

Tesla gotta make a van after the pickup, semi, and roadster 2.0. A frunk would be a huge advantage with a passenger van, which it seems the EQV does not have. Such vehicles probably offer up additional emissions savings over their lifetime than regular passenger vehicles. Plus, I can’t see Tesla making a slow EV van, like this one will probably be (well at least not quick). Could get up to 7 instant EV torque faces, ha ha. Thanks Mercedes though, for doing what not many other companies are doing yet.

Tesla already makes a minivan. It is called the Model X. Really. Minivans are generally being replaced by 3 row “SUVs”. Not sure I see them doing a commercial many passenger van.

We need electric minibuses for passenger services. Tesla was going to produce one but no longer mention it.

How is a frunk an advantage to a van? They have loads of storage. With such a large vehicle it seems like reducing front overhang would be much more beneficial.

If this had a Tesla supercharger connector that would sell it for me. Could use another 200km of EPA range for nice highway cruising. Mercedes does make nice vans so a partnership with Tesla for the supercharger and better batteries. Price for this?

I do not believe that with 100kWh battery this can make 400km. Maybe measured by NDEC.

With such a large interior it better be equipped with a heat pump.

For hotels or VIP taxis, could be a very good solution.

Let me guess – 2 to 4 years and only available in Europe at first – that makes me tired.
