In its forthcoming debut at the start of February, the Mercedes-Benz eSprinter boasts significant autonomy. Recently, a Mercedes-Benz eSprinter electric van was driven 475 kilometers on a single charge. After driving a round trip from Stuttgart to Munich airport, there was still enough power to travel another two km.
For the test to replicate natural conditions, it was conducted precisely in regular traffic with city traffic, country roads, and motorway driving. There is a 575-meter elevation difference between the highest (785 m above sea level) and lowest (210 m above sea level) points throughout the route, making it a challenging and unforgiving landscape.
The eSprinter electric van used was a stretched-out, high-top variant. A TüV inspector was a passenger throughout the journey, and they verified that the Mercedes-Benz eSprinter electric van used 21.9 kWh per 100 kilometers (or 2.19 kWh per mile) of travel.
The new Mercedes-Benz eSprinter will be offered with a choice of three different battery capacities, the largest of which was installed in the test vehicle. The electric car can be purchased as a van and a chassis, allowing various customization options.
Production of the new Mercedes-Benz eSprinter commercial electric vehicle is scheduled to begin in the second half of 2023 in Germany and the United States. The premiere is expected in early February, and the first copies are scheduled to arrive at the beginning of 2024. @via Mercedes-Benz Vans.
