eSprinter offers a mobility solution if you mainly operate your vehicle in city traffic. Thanks to its efficient electric drive system delivering 85 kW (116 hp), the new van delivers just as much reliability, cost-effectiveness and versatility as the internal-combustion-engine Sprinter, which has been a market leader for 25 years.
Up to 168 km range and 1040 kg capacity
The vehicle’s battery capacity is 47 kWh, for a range of up to 168 kilometres, with a capacity of 900 kilograms. The version with a 35 kWh battery provides it with a range of 120 km. The vehicle’s load capacity also gains 140 kg, giving a total of 1040 kg.
80% charge in just 30 minutes
Thanks to its flexible charging system, eSprinter excels at adapting to various charging scenarios. The van’s combined charging system (CCS) makes charging the vehicle as easy and convenient as possible. In its standard configuration, eSprinter can be charged from a source of alternating current, such as public charging stations with a power of up to 7.4 kW, or using up to 20 kW of direct current. For an additional fee, a charging module with direct-current power of 80 kW (35 kWh high-voltage battery) can be installed in the new eSprinter, charging it from 10 to 80% in just 30 minutes.
Starting this process simply requires one to plug the CCS cable connector in the Combo 2 CSS socket under the logo on the radiator grille.
Space and weight capacity
Because the battery is under the van’s floor, the cargo compartment of eSprinter offers as much space as the Sprinter with an internal-combustion engine: 11 m3. There is also a standard-length (A2) version with a tall roof. Depending on the capacity of the battery, 47 or 35 kWh, the amount of weight the vehicle can carry ranges from 900 kg to 1040 kg, respectively. eSprinter can also be equipped with equipment functions enabling easier and safer use of the cargo compartment.
Unparalleled level of safety
Mercedes-Benz electric vans undergo all of the crash testing and other testing procedures used with internal-combustion vehicles. This means that they fully meet Mercedes-Benz standards. The motor, the high-voltage battery and the high-voltage lines are protected and embedded in frames. A safety panel provides the battery system with additional protection against damage from below. All high-voltage lines are carefully insulated. If the vehicle’s crash sensors detect a serious accident, the van is immediately disconnected from the power supply.
The efficient electric motor of the van pleasantly surprises with it impeccable power transfer and pleasantly smooth operation. Compared to internal-combustion engines, electric motors offer much more efficiency, quieter operation and maximum torque right from the first revolution. Because the electricity used in electric vehicles comes from alternative energy sources, the motor does not produce any emissions. This makes electric drives an economically and environmentally sustainable option in cities, currently fraught with high levels of pollution and increasingly strict emissions regulations. Also, remember that compared to internal-combustion engines, electric motors suffer from less wear, and are easier to maintain.
Low maintenance costs
Owners of eSprinter will feel the economic benefits from day one. The electricity cost of driving 100 km is nowhere near that of operating a vehicle with an internal-combustion engine. Also, cities offer a number of benefits to electric vehicles, including free parking and the right to use public transport lanes, which can help save time, increase productivity etc. Finally, eSprinter should undergo maintenance once every year, or every 40,000 kilometres, and after five years of use, maintaining the vehicle in good technical order will only cost just under EUR 550*.
* The estimate assumes a total distance of 120,000 km travelled. If the distance is different, the scope and cost of maintenance will be, too.
