Charging your electric van is faster, cheaper, and more convenient than you might expect.
Making the switch to an electric van may seem daunting, but there are many reasons to go green now:
Cheaper running costs – Based on a mileage of 20,000 miles per year, choosing an eSprinter could save you over £2,000 compared to a diesel variant. Using an off-peak tariff may even save you more. Plus, with our current offer of a free NewMotion home charger worth £549, your setup costs are significantly reduced.
Fast charging – Depending on the van you choose, connecting to a DC rapid charge point could mean you’re back on the road with 80% charge in as little as 30 minutes. That means you can fit a top up in around your schedule.
Remote monitoring – All the latest Mercedes-Benz electric vans come with Mercedes PRO Connect, which enables you to monitor your vehicle charge and range from your smartphone. If you have multiple vans in your fleet, you can monitor them all.
Battery guarantee – Mercedes-Benz batteries are guaranteed for eight years or 100,000km (eVito) / 160,000km (eSprinter or eVito Tourer).
Three-year warranty – Each van in the electric range comes with a three-year, unlimited mileage warranty for your peace of mind.
Charge anywhere – The UK has over 38,500 public charging points, where you can top up your battery. You’re typically never more than four miles from a charger – ask us about the EQ Ready App to find out about viewing charge points in real time.
Compare charging speeds
eSprinter Panel Vans will charge from 10-80% in 30-120 minutes at a DC charger, depending on its type. At an AC 7.2kW point, a full charge takes eight hours.
The eVito Panel Van charges from 0-100% in six hours at an AC 7.2kW charger. Charging at an AC 2.3kW point takes 20 hours.
eVito Tourer models will charge to 80% at a DC 110kW point in just 40 minutes. Using an AC 11kW point, a full charge takes 10 hours.
Charge times vary depending on the power available at the charge point, and are subject to factors such as external temperature and the type of cable used.
