Prices and specification announced for Mercedes eVito van
There are now prices and specification for the new Mercedes-Benz eVito, a compact electric van which offers 85kW of power, 300Nm of torque, a 92-mile average range and a six hour charging time, based on three-phase charging.
There are two lengths available. The 5.14m L2 costs from £39,895 (ex VAT) and the 5.37m L3 starts at £40,415 (ex VAT). The vehicle is also eligible for the Office For Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) Grant. This means that customers can benefit from a 20% reduction on the vehicle purchase price, up to a maximum of £8,000.
The L2 offers 6.0m3 of cargo volume and a payload of 923kg (GVW is 3,200kg). The L3 cargo volume is 6.6m3 but with a payload of 898kg. This could make conversion to a campervan tricky and we are still waiting for information about whether Mercedes plans to roll this power train out to its own Marco Polo campervans.
The eVito will be front wheel drive with a specification that is akin to the Pure version of the standard van. This includes a height and rake adjustable steering wheel, Hill Start Assist, electrically adjustable heated exterior mirrors, sliding doors on both sides of the vehicle, wood flooring and an adaptive brake light.
In addition to this, the eVito gets Mercedes Pro connect, heated drivers’ seat, Tempmatic air conditioning, a four-metre charging cable and a CanTrack vehicle tracker as standard.
In addition to the Pure, there will be a better kitted out model called the Progressive. Standard specification includes colour coded bumpers, full wheel covers, front fog lights, Headlight Assist, 75mph speed limiter, Audio 15, lumbar support and electrically foldable mirrors. Prices for this model start from £41,600 (ex VAT) for the L2 and £42,120 (ex VAT) for the L3 variant.
For both specification levels, Mercedes PRO connect comes as standard and is free for the first three years, with benefits including; Remote Access, Digital Drivers’ Log, Drive Style monitoring, real-time variable servicing monitoring, parking time monitor and geo-fence options.
The eVito is now available to order from the nationwide Mercedes-Benz Vans Dealer network.
