Mercedes-Benz Vans presented the Concept EQV as a study at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019. Now the series version of the Mercedes-Benz EQV (combined power consumption: 27.0 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km, provisional figures)1 is celebrating its debut. The next member of the Mercedes EQ family combines emissions-free mobility with impressive driving abilities, high functionality and aesthetic design as the first fully-electric premium MPV from Mercedes-Benz. The Mercedes-Benz EQV will be displayed to the public for the first time at this year's IAA (12 to 22 September).

The technical highlights include a range of 405 kilometres (provisional figures)1 and the rapid charging of the high-voltage battery from 10 to 80 per cent in less than an hour. The Mercedes-Benz EQV also offers ultimate comfort in the interior and unparalleled flexibility. Customers can also choose between two different wheel bases.

"Our MPVs meet the highest standards in terms of functionality and variability. The EQV also does not compromise in this respect. It offers comfortable handling, dynamic electro-aesthetics, intuitive operation and generous space – and all locally emissions-free. This means that it offers all of the typical qualities of the brand and segment that our customers expect, whether as a family car or a shuttle vehicle with a lounge-like character", says Marcus Breitschwerdt, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans.

As a series-produced vehicle, the EQV is fully integrated into the production operations of the plant in Vitoria in northern Spain, where the V-Class and Mercedes-Benz Vito are also made. This facilitates flexible and synergetic production in direct correlation with customer demand.

Maximum benefit thanks to intelligent design

The electric drive train (eATS) of the Mercedes-Benz EQV is situated on the front axle under the dynamic front end of the car with a charging connection in the bumper. It has a peak output of 150 kW. The electric motor, the transmission with a fixed gear ratio, the cooling system and the power electronics constitute a highly integrated, compact unit. The power is provided by a lithium ion battery under the floor of the vehicle. Its low, central location also has a positive effect on the handling characteristics of the EQV. A top speed of up to 160 km/h also ensures that you quickly get to where you are going outside an urban environment.

As standard the Mercedes-Benz EQV is equipped with a water-cooled on-board charger (OBC) with a capacity of 11 kW, making it suitable for AC charging at home or at public charging stations. The battery, which has a usable capacity of 90 kWh, facilitates a maximum range of 405 kilometres (provisional figures)1. The installation of the battery in the space below the floor means that all of the space is available, with no impact on the interior of the vehicle. This means that the fully electric MPV from Mercedes-Benz also meets the highest standards in terms of functionality and variability and covers a large number of applications. In the private sphere, for example, families benefit from a multitude of seating configurations as well as a good conscience from producing zero local emissions. Six individual seats, on the other hand, turn the Mercedes-Benz EQV into a representative shuttle vehicle that meets all of the requirements for the high-quality transportation of people with a comfortable and particularly quiet driving experience. The flexible installation of individual or bench seats also allows the EQV to be converted into a 7- or even an 8-seater.

MBUX in the EQV: electric and intelligent

The refinement of MBUX specifically for EQ is a particular highlight. In the high-resolution, 10-inch media display, the EQ tile in the main menu serves as a central point of access to the specific displays and settings. These include the charging current, departure time, energy flow and consumption histogram. The media display can also be used to operate the navigation and Mercedes me Charge functions, as well as the driving modes. One of the strengths of MBUX is its intelligent voice control with natural language comprehension, which is activated by the keyword "Hey Mercedes". The voice control supports many infotainment functions (e.g. destination input, phone calls, music selection, writing and hearing messages, weather forecast), as well as numerous convenience functions such as climate control/lighting. And MBUX also applies its strengths in combination with the Mercedes me App outside the vehicle. EQV drivers can plan their destinations from the home or office, enter a departure time and bring the interior to the desired temperature.

Maximum range thanks to intelligent recuperation and different driving modes

To ensure that the technical operating range is used to the maximum, the Mercedes-Benz EQV also charges its batteries when on the move. When accelerating or braking, the mechanical rotation is converted into electrical energy and used to charge the high-voltage battery (recuperation). The driver has a major influence on recuperation. He/she is also able to influence the recuperation level using paddles behind the steering wheel. The paddle on the left increases the level of recuperation, the paddle on the right reduces it. At the weakest level the vehicle "coasts", while at the strongest level it is possible to drive using a single pedal. This is because, in most situations, the slowing effect of recuperation is sufficient to make the brake pedal redundant.

The recuperation level D Auto reflects the intelligence of the EQV. The automatically activated ECO Assistant helps the driver to achieve the best possible efficiency. It combines navigation data, road traffic sign recognition and information provided by the intelligent safety assistance systems (radar and camera), and adjusts the level of recuperation itself.

In combination with EQ-optimised navigation, active range monitoring ensures that the driver reaches the destination safely even if a charging stop is missed. It is also assisted by the E+ driving mode, which optimises the vehicle's parameters to maximise the range.

Comprehensive electromobility ecosystem with numerous charging opportunities

Part of the EQ technology brand is a comprehensive electromobility ecosystem, which the Mercedes-Benz EQV benefits from as the youngest member of the EQ family. This includes a holistic range of services, and ranges from vehicle functions such as adapted navigation through to the charging infrastructure. Via Mercedes me Charge, the customer receives access to the world's largest charging network with over 300 000 charging points and over different operators of public charging stations in Europe alone (municipalities, car parks, motorways, shopping centres, etc.). Customers benefit from an integrated payment function with simple invoicing. Mercedes me Charge also allows access to the quick-charging stations of the pan-European network IONITY. Especially over long distances, the short charging times make for a pleasant journey. By 2020 IONITY will construct and operate around 400 quick-charging stations along the main traffic arteries in Europe. IONITY was founded in November 2017 as a joint venture by BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and the Volkswagen group with Audi and Porsche.

With the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox Home and 11 kW charging output, the EQV can be charged significantly faster than using a domestic socket. In cooperation with country-specific charger installation partners, Mercedes-Benz also offers easy and rapid installation of the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox and professional advice on all aspects of e-mobility. DC charging using the series-standard CCS (Combined Charging Systems) is even faster. In Europe the EQV can be charged with a maximum output of up to 110 kW at an appropriate charging station. It then takes less than 45 minutes to charge from 10 to 80 per cent SoC (State of Charge).

Design with specific EQ aesthetic

One element that all EQ vehicles have in common is their design with a specific avant garde aesthetic. The focal point is the black panel radiator grille with chrome fins, as well as the clear side profile with specific, EQ design, lightweight, 18-inch wheels, which make a dynamic impression even when stationary.

The aesthetic of the exterior is continued in the interior, where the cool aesthetic is complemented by warm accents such as rose gold, underscoring the "welcome home" effect. The heart of the interaction between driver and machine is the intuitive Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX). This combines a 10-inch touch screen with learning voice operation and innovative connectivity features.

The colour rose gold, which stands for value and electrification, also plays an important role in the dashboard. And complements the midnight blue leather appearance. The design of the controls is also characteristic. Rose gold provides elegance and warmth for the infotainment and sound system, and "Silver Shadow" surrounds the air vents. Decorative stitching along the seats in rose gold provides contrast.

The Mercedes-Benz EQV as a new milestone for the "EQ" technology brand

The "EQ" technology brand founded by Mercedes-Benz in 2016 stands for the consistent ongoing development of electromobility. It all started with the "Concept EQ". This was followed by the Concept EQA in the compact class at the 2017 IAA. In September 2018 the brand presented its first series-produced vehicle in the form of the EQC electric SUV (combined power consumption: 20.8 – 19.7 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km)[2]. In March 2019, the Concept EQV at the Geneva Motor Show indicated a potential expansion of the model range in the MPV segment, with up to eight seats. The series-produced version of the Mercedes-Benz EQV that has now been presented marks a new milestone in the development of the "EQ" technology brand.

I believe Mercedes can do well at rivaling the upcoming Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid at least with lower trims to be 1:1 on price.
A UK publication provided EQV specifications in FAQ format for anyone wanting a simplified version.

What is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV?
Mercedes is adding a van-based multi-purpose vehicle (MPV, or what we used to call a “people carrier”) to its EQ electric vehicle range. As that currently only comprises one other model — the EQC premium SUV — Merc clearly decided some outside the box-thinking was required for its second pure-electric model, in contrast to the hatchbacks, saloons and crossovers being brought to market by other car makers.

The V in EQV, as you may have guessed, is derived from the V in V-Class, on which this new electric model is based. Its unique selling proposition is that it’s the king of electric cars when it comes to carrying loads, whether they be passengers or cargo.

How much can the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV carry?
Because the battery packs are installed under the floor, Mercedes says the EQV’s 1,030 litre load area is the same size as the long wheelbase diesel V-Class, and it can seat up to eight people.

How far can the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV go on a charge?
Mercedes says the EQV should be able to go up to 251 miles on a single charge. As well as being one of the better single charge ranges for an electric car, it’s not far off the 259 miles range Mercedes quotes for the EQC electric SUV — an impressive feat, considering the EQV weighs a massive 3.5 tons, which is more than a ton heavier than a long wheelbase V250 d AMG Line.

How quickly does the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV recharge?
Quoted charging times for the EQV are respectable. It will be able to receive a maximum charge speed of 110kW – rapid chargers capable of this are being rolled out across Europe now — which takes 45 minutes to charge the 90kWh battery up from 10% to 80%, according to Mercedes.

While no times were quoted for a 50kW charge, which is the most common type at UK motorway services today, you can fully replenish the EQV’s battery pack in under 10 hours using an 11kW charger — the sort that you may be able to install at home.

What tech will the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV have?
All models will come with a 10in infotainment display, through which the driver can adjust the climate control, make phone controls using voice commands and make use of connected service tools like real-time weather reports.

The EQV will also come with a built-in, “EQ-optimised” navigation system, which Mercedes claims can plot a route that factors how much charge is in the batteries. In combination with more efficient driving modes and “active range monitoring” features, the tool can allegedly also allow the driver to “reach the destination safely even if a charging stop is missed”.

When will the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV go on sale?
Mercedes hasn’t confirmed when it will be bringing the EQV to the UK, though reports have suggested orders for the zero-emissions MPV will open here in early 2020.

How much will the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV cost?
UK prices for the Mercedes-Benz EQV will be revealed closer to launch.

What are the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV’s rivals?
As a premium eight-seater electric car, the EQV will pretty much be in a class of its own when it goes on sale. Its closest direct rival is the Nissan e-NV200 Combi MPV, though that’s a bit smaller and not as capable in terms of range. SUV alternatives including cars like the seven-seater Tesla Model X.

The EQV will face some competition as a pure-electric commercial vehicle: as well as the van version of the Nissan e-NV200, the EQV will also go up against hybrid cargo carriers like the London taxi-based LEVC TX van and the plug-in Ford Transit PHEV.

More EV van rivals are on the horizon, though. Ford has said it will launch a pure-electric Transit in 2021, and Volkswagen has plans for a production version of its Campervan-inspired ID Buzz concept car.
