The electric van Mercedes-Benz eVito Tourer appeared in 2019 with modest parameters (an 85 kW motor, 116 hp, 295 Nm, a battery with a used part of 35 kWh, a power reserve of up to 186 km). In 2020, this only version was replaced by a more efficient one (150 kW, 204 hp, 366 Nm, 90 kWh, up to 370 km by WLTP). Now the Germans have expanded the offer at the expense of a junior modification with a 60 kWh battery (used part). Charging mileage is 217-239 km, depending on options.
By default, eVito charges up to 50 kW, and an optional 80 kW charger can be supplied. It allows you to fill the battery from 10 to 80% in 35 minutes.
According to the EQV vans offered on the German website of Mercedes, you can estimate the benefits of choosing a younger battery at 3570 euros (the price of the model is € 67 818 with a 60 kWh battery versus € 71 388 for 90 kWh, 5.7).
The company says that the younger version of eVito will appeal to those customers for whom the starting price is important (it is, however, not named), and those who use the electric car on short, easily predictable routes. In addition, a smaller battery reduced the van’s weight by 150 kg with a corresponding increase in carrying capacity. The luxury sibling of eVito, the Mercedes-Benz EQV, has also expanded the number of versions. To the EQV 300 with a motor and battery similar to the top-end eVito, the EQV 250 has been added with a 60 kWh battery and a range of 213-236 km. The standard equipment of such a modification already includes an 80 kW on-board charger, while it is an option for eVito.
