Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van

Editors' First Take

While Mercedes-Benz already sells an electric eSprinter van in Europe, there's no such product in America. But that's all about to change. When it launches in the second half of 2023, the US and Canada will be the first countries to receive the eSprinter 2.0, which will be manufactured at three different plants, one of which is MB's facility in Charleston, South Carolina.

Underpinning the eSprinter 2.0 is Mercedes-Benz's Electric Versatility Platform, which is an EV foundation built exclusively for large vans and their many variants, whether it's a standard tall-roof delivery vehicle or an upfitted chassis cab such as an ambulance. This is a pretty major upgrade, as the original eSprinter was limited in its variations.

Since we are a ways away from its official reveal, the eSprinter's nitty-gritty is still obscured. We know the eSprinter 2.0 will be offered with three different battery capacities. That way, last-mile urban delivery vehicles won't need to carry around the weight of a battery that will never get used to its full potential, nor will longer-range solutions require obscene amounts of charging. There are no specific range estimates for the eSprinter 2.0 yet, but Mercedes-Benz said it hopes to double the range of the current van, which is anywhere between 85 and 100 miles.
