The eSprinter joins Mercedes-Benz Vans' growing electric vans line-up and is a further demonstration of our commitment to leading the way when it comes to sustainable mobility. On a dedicated electric charge point, which you can have installed at work or home through a specialist provider, it will take about 8 hours. At a public charge point, using a DC rapid charger, you can get an 80% charge in 30 minutes. All Mercedes-Benz eVans come with a full package of business benefits including free 24/7 MobiloVan roadside assistance, 3-years unlimited mileage warranty, an 8-year or 160,000km battery guarantee and the latest integrated Mercedes PRO connect vehicle management software.
What are the advantages of electric vans?
Electric vans are generally considered to be better for the environment in terms of emissions, because they don’t produce any CO2 or NOX local emissions when the vehicle is being driven.
Cheaper to run
Electricity costs less than diesel fuel, making electric vans far cheaper to run per mile. Also, electric vans are exempt from congestion charges and with many major cities - including London - fast becoming low emission zones, this could add up to a considerable cost saving.
Fewer maintenance costs
Electric vans have fewer moving parts than traditional vehicles. They’re not as hard on their brakes due to regenerative braking, which uses the eSprinter's motor to convert the energy normally lost when decelerating, back into stored energy in the battery. Ultimately, this makes them cheaper and easier to maintain.
Smooth to drive
With automatic transmission and quiet engines, electric vans offer a different kind of driving experience with instant acceleration and no gearshifts, making it feel more effortless.
No compromise on load space
The batteries of Mercedes-Benz electric vans are stored in the underbody of the vehicle, so the load space remains the same as our diesel Sprinter van.
Grants, schemes and exemptions
The government is helping subsidise the transition to electric with financial benefits that help towards both the purchase price and operating costs.
We've created an easy access, low-commitment eReady finance package, from as little as 12 months, that allows customers to enter electric with a level of commitment that suits them. Our flexible eReady finance allows owners to regularly review their options and switch to newer models as they become available
