Ahead of its premiere in early February 2023, Mercedes-Benz is providing an update for the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz eSprinter electric van which is currently entering the end of its trial period.
Launching the official Mercedes-Benz Vans website on Thursday (1/12/2022), the new generation of eSprinter with a body version that is longer, taller and the largest of all its variants has managed to cover a distance of up to 475 km.
Departing from Stuttgart for Munich, Germany, the new eSprinter manages to run round-trip on just one charge of its electric battery and produces a power consumption of 21.9 kWh per 100 km.
The journey was accomplished in intercity traffic as well as on federal roads and highways, even in fairly extreme route conditions such as the ascent to the Swabian Alb. In fact, at the finish point, this electric van managed to leave a distance of around 20 km.
As a result, Mercedes-Benz concluded that this new generation of eSprinter is claimed to be more efficient. Multiple configuration options and payload capacities combined with long range make the eSprinter one of the most versatile electric vans in the world.
With the successful test drive of the new generation eSprinter, Mercedes-Benz Vans consistently implements its electrification strategy and underlines its claim to leadership as the “Lead in Electric Drive” (leader of electrification vehicles).
Starting in the middle of this decade, Mercedes-Benz Vans also admits that it will implement the next stage of its electrification strategy by embedding the VAN.EA (Mercedes-Benz Vans Electric Architecture) platform on all its van models starting in 2025.
Depending on the configuration, the latest generation of the Mercedes-Benz eSprinter will be produced in stages in Charleston, United States (US) and in Düsseldorf and Ludwigsfelde, Germany from the second half of 2023.
