Mercedes-Benz Vans has released the specs of its new electric Sprinter, which will be out in 2019 as a follow up to the eVito.
The mid-size van will have a gross vehicle weight of 3500 kilograms, a vehicle length of 5932 millimetres, a wheelbase of 3924 millimetres and a maximum load capacity of 10.5 m3.
With a 55 kWh battery, the range of the new eSprinter is around 93 miles, even with a full load, which is around 900 kilograms, Mercedes says.
A full charge will take eight hours at a 7.2 kW charging point.
A second 41 kWh battery option is also available where payload capacity is a secondary priority to range.
In this set-up, the range is around 71 miles and maximum payload increases by around 140 kilograms to around 1040 kilograms.
The charging time is around six hours. If charged at a DC fast charging station, the battery can be charged to 80 per cent in 45 minutes.
Customers have a choice of maximum speeds; 50 miles per hour for city driving and if more pace is required, top speeds of up to 74 m/h are possible.
The mid-size van has been available to order for a number of months, and the first examples will be delivered in the second half of this year.
