Mercedes-Benz, a global automobile company, is reportedly launching its EQV electric minivan for 71,388.10 euros (approximately £64,000) as part of the V-Class lineup in Europe.

In 2019, the company unveiled its electric EQV MPV, which is equipped with a 100-kWh battery pack. However, the company has limited the usable capacity of the battery to 90-kWh. The product is expected to have a range of 250 miles (405 km) on a single charge.

The new EQV is equipped with an on-board charger of 11-kW to charge the battery pack. It can ensure the direct current (DC) fast-charging at over 110-kW. The company claims that it is capable of increasing battery charge from 10% to 80% in less than 45 minutes. The electric motor, which can reach the top speed of 160 km per hour (99mph), has a 150-kW peak power output.

Daimler AG is launching the electric vehicle officially in Europe and commencing the production activities in Vitoria, northern Spain, where the Mercedes-Benz Vito and V-Class are being produced. Daimler is a German multinational automotive corporation, which is a leading producer of premium cars and commercial vehicles.

The German automaker recently confirmed the price of the EQV, which also includes a maintenance package for 4 years. This package covers maintenance costs as per the manufacturer specifications and the service booklet. It also consists of the battery certificate for Mercedes-Benz for a duration of over 8 years or 160,000 km. Additionally, the Mercedes Me remote & navigation services are also added in the purchase price for a 36-month term as well as Mercedes Me Charge function & lonity membership for the period of 12 months each.

Without the incentives and taxes, the EQV would be priced at approximately £64,000.

Like the 45 minute battery charge from 10-80%.

Don't like the base price of £64,000, which you will have to add the conversion costs and the turning circle function in London.

Be amazed if it comes in under £80,000. :shock:

It'll be a good long while before an upturn in business will make such an expense vehicle viable to other than a very few.
