New Mercedes EQV: an all-new, all-electric luxury van

Mercedes working on an upgraded version of it pure electricity EQV. The luxurious minibus was first revealed at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, making it the second oldest model in the Mercedes EQ range, after EQC SUV.

These are our first images of the updated EQV, and it looks like it’s nearing the end of development. The front end appears to be set to get a revised bumper, new LED headlights and a new grille design, but it will be a very slight update in terms of aesthetics. The charging port will likely remain in the front bumper. There’s more camouflage towards the rear, but again it doesn’t look like a full-blown redesign. The taillights will get a new signature and we could also see a new choice of alloy rims.

Inside the upgraded EQV there’s a steering wheel cover and dash, which suggests we can see the latest infotainment system feature along with the new steering wheel. The included EQV has a 10-inch display on the dashboard, which can be swapped for a pair of 10.25-inch monitors side by side as shown in A class or a combination of the 11.9-inch center display and the 12.3-inch driver display from the new version C-Class.

The current EQV uses a 90kWh battery and a front-mounted electric motor, developing 201bhp and 364Nm of torque. This means the EQV has a maximum range of 213 miles and can charge from 10 to 80% of the battery in 45 minutes. We are unlikely to see a new battery added to the EQV, as it shares a platform with the internal combustion engine. V-Classbut we could see Mercedes unlocking a few extra miles of range thanks to the data gathered on existing EQVs and the overall EQ range.

The current EQV starts at £78,850 in Sport 300 guise, so it’s possible we’ll see the new model hit a starting price of £80,000. There’s no official reveal yet, but we expect a full launch in early 2023 with the first pre-orders shortly thereafter.
