Instead of being rear-wheel drive, the EQV is actually front-wheel drive, containing all its motive-force bits in the front end.

Its electric motor puts out 201 horsepower, and it's combined into a single unit with the transmission, cooling system and power electronics.

Juice comes from a 100-kWh lithium-ion battery, which gives the EQV a range of about 249 miles and a top speed of 99 miles per hour.

From an aesthetics standpoint, the EQV looks very close to the V-Class that debuted at the end of January.

The EQV's interior is just a bit fancier, with blue and rose-gold elements all over the place.

Odds are that there will be a stripped-down commercial version that can take a little more abuse, too.

While the production EQV will likely arrive within the next year or so, Mercedes-Benz has bigger plans beyond that.

The automaker hopes to electrify its entire portfolio -- that is to say, it will offer at least one electrified variant of all its models -- by 2022
