Pricing and specification for new Mercedes-Benz eVito announced
The electric Mercedes-Benz eVito is now available for order by UK customers, with production and first deliveries starting in March.
The new panel van offers 162-mile range. Its 66 kWh lithium-ion battery can be restored to 80 per cent of full usable capacity in just 35 minutes, using a publicly available rapid charging point.
AC fast charging to 100% capacity takes six-and-a-half hours using an 11kW Wallbox Type 2 charger, and approximately 20 hours using a regular domestic power outlet. eVito customers can take advantage of Mercedes-Benz Vans’ home charge point offers, which are redeemable via its infrastructure partners EO and New Motion. EO charging can also support customers with depot and business charging rollouts.
Prices for new eVito panel van start at £ 43,600 for the L2 PROGRESSIVE variant, excluding VAT and the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) grant contribution, which is currently worth £5,000.
Mercedes-Benz Vans UK Head of Electric Mobility, Kevin Ferris declared: “Mercedes- Benz is leading the transition to electric mobility and the new e-Vito takes our electric vans range to the next level. This is an exceptional van that goes further, works harder and keeps businesses moving for longer.”
He continued: “At the end of 2019 Mercedes-Benz Vans was placed fifth by sales volume in the market for electric vans, but a year later we were up to second. In 2021, we maintained this position and more than doubled the number of electric van registrations achieved in 2020.”
“This represents a fantastic performance, but 2022 is going to be even better. While the eSprinter, new eVito panel van and eVito Tourer all excel in their respective market segments, we don’t, at present, offer a small electric van. That changes this year, though, when we also welcome to the UK the first examples of the small eCitan, a joint winner of the coveted International Van of the Year award.”
