The classic van model has now been developed with an efficient electric drive.
As you would expect from Mercedes-Benz, quality has not been compromised and the eVito panel van is comfortable, secure and functional.
The range is up to 93 miles, and there are 2 vehicle lengths available. These are the Long (L2), with a load compartment of 6.0 cubic metres and the Extra Long (L3) with 6.6 cubic metres.
Economy and efficiency are increased by using overnight charging. Recuperation recovers energy when driving whilst the vehicle is decelerating. The highly efficient electric drive means your cost of ownership is much less. You can select 3 different drive programmes and 4 different recuperation levels to increase flexibility and efficiency. You're in control.
This digital solution gives you valuable information about vehicle functionality both onboard and remotely. Mercedes PRO connect monitors repair and servicing schedules, locates charging points for optimal route planning, remotely checks vehicle charge status and pre-conditions the cabin temperature prior to your journey.
The eVito's high-voltage battery system can be fully charged in around 6 hours from 0 to 100%. This is by using a Type II charging connector with an output of up to 7.4 kW. A 4 metre charging cable is included as standard with an optional 8 metre cable available too. Whilst charging, the central locking system of the vehicle secures the connector, so it's completely safe and secure. The Mercedes PRO connect system is constantly searching for charging stations as you drive around, so you can easily top up whilst out and about.
The high voltage cabling and battery and powertrain are all carefully protected and shielded. The system detects any fault with connections and switches off if a problem or fault is detected. For example, in the event of an accident where the airbags are activated, the vehicle de-energises completely. For rescue workers, a rescue separation point allows the power supply to be cut off. It must be noted that only trained technicians should work on the high-voltage system, even in the event of a breakdown. Annual maintenance is essential.
Mercedes-Benz stands for quality and style, so the eVito is equipped with a few little extras that make driving it a real pleasure...
Your new e-vehicle is part of the Mercedes-Benz eReady Programme, which means it comes with:
Electric driving obviously has slightly different statistics to show, so we've listed a couple you might find useful here:
