The eVito Tourer is now Also Available with Another Battery Variant

For more than a year now, the eVito Tourer has proven itself to be a specialist in locally emission-free commercial passenger transport tasks and in doing so has demonstrated its suitability for daily operations with battery electric vans from Mercedes-Benz – be that as a hotel shuttle vehicle, a high-capacity taxi or a vehicle for on-demand mobility concepts in public transport.

As an alternative to the eVito Tourer with a 90 kWh usable battery capacity (combined electrical consumption: 26.9-26.2 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km,[1]), Mercedes‑Benz Vans now also offers the eVito Tourer in a further variant equipped with a usable battery capacity of 60 kWh (combined electrical consumption: 27.4-26.7 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km1). This will open up greater possibilities for commercial customers in particular to find the right vehicle version to suit their intended operations and their business model. The new variant of the eVito Tourer is thus interesting for customers who cover easy-to-plan routes or who only drive short distances, such as in school transport operations. It is also interesting for those looking for an affordable starting price or for whom a weight saving of 150 kg and the corresponding payload increase would be useful.

The range of the eVito Tourer with a 60 kWh battery is 217-239 km[2],[3]. The standard fast charging function offers a charging output of 50 kW[4], and as an option 80 kWare also possible. In this case, the battery can be charged from 10 to 80 % in around 35 minutes[5].

Mercedes-Benz EQV: the people carrier for families and sports enthusiasts with lots of luggage

Environmentally friendly families or sports enthusiasts who prefer having extra space for luggage or heavy equipment and thus who need a greater payload, or those who mostly use the vehicle for short to medium distances, now also have the option to order the EQV 250 (combined fuel consumption: 27.6‑26.9 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km1) with 60 kWh usable battery capacity. The range here is 213‑236 km2,3 and the 80 kW fast charging function4 already comes as standard on the EQV 250, as do high-quality interior appointments such as the innovative MBUX infotainment system.

Those who are interested in the vehicle but who are unsure as to which variant is the perfect solution for them or whether the lower battery capacity is actually sufficient can use the EQ Ready app free of charge to carry out an analysis and determine their mobility behaviour.

[1] Electrical consumption was determined on the basis of Directive 692/2008/EC. The electrical consumption depends on the vehicle configuration.

[2] The range was determined on the basis of Directive 2017/1151/EU.

[3] The actual range is also dependent on the individual driving style, road and traffic conditions, the outside temperature, as well as whether the air conditioning system/heating are in use, and may therefore differ.

[4] Maximum charging capacity at a DC charging station with a 400 volt supplyIma, 300 A current; the maximum charging output depends on various factors, such as ambient and battery temperature as well as the state of charge of the battery when charging is started.

[5] Minimum charging time from 10 to 80 % under optimal conditions at a DC charging station with a 400 volt supply, 300 A current; the charging time may vary depending on various factors, such as ambient and battery temperature as well as whether additional auxiliary consumers are in use, e.g. heating.
