Mercedes-Benz EQV concept electrifies the humble van

Cars
[MUSIC] Now, what you're looking at right now, we've the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQV. And the V stands for Van. This thing looks a lot like the Mercedes Metris that we use as our production vehicle. Wu-Tang van! But it's actually based on the Mercedes V-Class that debuted in January. Only this one has a lot of design details that are borrowed from Mercedes as AQC compact SUV, electric concept. So we got details like Like blue highlights on the wheels, and a really strong LED light signature up front. However, the most important part of this package, is going to be that EQ part. And that means that this is a fully electric vehicle. Now, unlike the v-class, this isn't a rear-wheel drive vehicle, it's front-wheel drive, and that's because it's 201 horsepower electric motor is integrated into one package up front, with a single speed transmission, and all the electronics that you need to get the whole thing going. No, it's probably got gobs of torque because it's electric, but we don't have details on that number just yet. And what we do know is that it's gonna be powered by a 100 kilowatt hour lithium ion battery pack, that's gonna be good for around 249 miles of range. Now it can even recharge in 15 minutes to get you a quick 62 miles of range if you need it in a pinch. Now the version we have here is decked out in passenger van luxury spec with a Napa leather interior and rose gold highlights. But there'll probably be a more stripped down, cargo van version of this thing when we see the production version later on this year, probably at the Frankfurt Auto Show. But for now, stay tuned to the rest of our coverage of the 2019 Geneva Auto Show, right here on the For TheRoadShow.com. [MUSIC]
