2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV Is The Brand’s First Electric Premium MPV

Mercedes-Benz has taken the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show by storm with a range of electric vehicles from their new EQ sub-brand. One of them is the EQV, a zero-emission version of the V-Class.

Presented online last month, the EQV is now ready to greet customers at the event, flaunting its visual makeover that’s very similar to the study that we saw earlier this year. Blink and you might miss the changes that mostly concern the front end, although there’s also a reworked rear bumper and less colorful wheels.

With room for up to 9 occupants, the interior is extremely customizable and can be fitted with individual or bench rear seats. Mercedes has added the new MBUX infotainment system with a 10-inch display, while further communication with the vehicle can be done remotely, as users will be able to pre-heat or pre-cool the cabin and set a destination and departure time.

Depending on how big the family is, the EQV is offered in two different lengths. The 5,140 mm (202.4 in) variant has a 3,200 mm (126 in) wheelbase, and the 5,370 mm (211.4 in) model’s wheelbase is a whole 230 mm (9 in) longer.

With the 90 kWh lithium-ion battery fully charged, the zero-emission MPV has a maximum range of 405 km (252 miles). It supports 110 kW fast charging, so filling it up from 10 to 80 percent takes 45 minutes.

Performance is not bad either, with the EQV being able to reach a top speed of 160 km (99 mph) thanks to the 204 PS (201 hp / 150 kW) and 362 Nm (267 lb-ft) front-mounted electric motor.
