Mercedes-Benz enhances battery capacity (and range) of the eVito panel van
The battery will have an usable capacity of 60 kWh, with the range that may reach 242-314 kilometers, according to the version. The new model can be charged via the CCS charging socket in the front left bumper.
Mercedes-Benz eVito panel van will be soon available with increased battery capacity and range, according to the WLTP standard. Namely, the battery will have an usable capacity of 60 kWh, with the range that may reach 242-314 kilometers, according to the version. The new model can be charged via the CCS charging socket in the front left bumper. This also makes fast charging by means of direct current (DC) possible. Thanks to a standard charging power of a maximum of 50 kW, or optionally a maximum of 80 kW, the eVito can be charged from 10 to 80 percent at a DC fast charging station in about 50 or 35 minutes.

Mercedes-Benz eVito with improved electric powertrain
By housing the battery in the vehicle underfloor, the interior is fully available and offers up to 6.6 cubic meters of loading volume. The locally emission-free van can be ordered in two different lengths: with a total length of 5,140 millimetres and as an extra-long version, which comes to 5,370 millimetres. Under the front end, there is still the electric powertrain which drives the front wheels with a peak power of 85 kW. The Mercedes‑Benz eVito panel van has a water-cooled AC on-board charger with a charging capacity up to mazimum 11 kW.
«I’m delighted that with the new Mercedes-Benz eVito panel van we are opening up commercial electric mobility for even more use cases and, thenks to the longer range, we are also offering a solution for suburban and rural areas», says Klaus Rehkugler, Vice-President Sales & Marketing at Mercedes-Benz Vans at the start of the slaes of the new eVito. «Looking at its equipment specification, attractive leasing rates and available public subsidies, the eVito is on par with a conventionally powered Vito in terms of TCO in many use cases. This is an important aspect, especially for businesses focussing on trade and craftsmanship or fleet managers, and once again makes it clear that electric mobility is now absolutely suitable for everyday use».
