Mercedes-Benz is now taking orders within the United Kingdom for the eSprinter, the zero-emission model of its panel van.
Joining the likes of the eVito, eVito Tourer and eCitan, the eSprinter is obtainable in two variations, with DC 20 kW and DC 80 kW charging, which costs the battery from 10 to 80% in 120 and 30 minutes, respectively.
With a driving vary of as much as 96 miles (154 km), the eSprinter has a beginning worth of £51,950 ($67,917), which excludes tax and the OLEV grant of as much as £8,000 ($10,459). According to a analysis performed by the automaker, the common each day van mileage throughout Europe is 60 miles (97 km), thus the EV is “ideal for applications including last-mile delivery and urban operations”.
Mounted below the ground in order that they don’t have an effect on the load area, the 4 parallel high-voltage battery blocks will be changed individually in case they get broken. They’re provided with an eight-year/99,419-mile (160,000 km) guarantee and so they’re mentioned to retain no less than 70% of their capability after eight years.
The 114 HP (116 PS / 85 kW) output and 218 lb-ft (295 Nm) of torque produced by the electrical motor is delivered to the entrance wheels.
Standard gear contains air-con, DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, USB port, heated driver’s seat with armrest, twin passenger seating, overhead management panel, peak and rake adjustable steering wheel, wood flooring and 26-foot (8-meter) charging cable.
The Active Brake Assist, Attention Assist, Crosswind Assist and Emergency eCall are included as well, whereas the Mercedes Pro Connect built-in digital connectivity system, which eases the fleet possession expertise, is free for the primary two years.
