Compact electrical van for households previewed with idea

Mercedes-Benz on Monday revealed an idea that previews a brand new electrical van at the moment within the works.

Known as the Idea EQT, the idea previews an electrical model of the upcoming T-Class (teaser under), which is basically a brand new passenger van being developed alongside a redesigned Citan. The Citan is compact commercial van bought exterior the US.

The technique is much like what Mercedes does with its Metris business van bought right here, which has a passenger model known as a V-Class, and accessible in EQV electric guise.

The redesigned Citan business van will debut in 2021, in each common guise and an electrical model to be referred to as the eCitan. The T-Class passenger van will debut within the first half of 2022 and spawn its personal EQT electrical model at a later date.

Mercedes described the Idea EQT as a “near-series-production” car, suggesting that the manufacturing model will probably be styled carefully to what you see right here. It measures 194.6 inches in size, options sliding doorways, and has seven seats cut up over three rows. Mercedes hasn’t talked about storage quantity, although the automaker mentioned the third-row seats may be folded or eliminated utterly to maximise storage.

The T-Class, and the EQT it’s going to spawn, will probably be aimed toward younger households and folks with lively life who do not wish to improve to a big crossover or pickup truck to hold their gear. It is going to trip on a platform sourced from the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance, a platform that will even doubtless kind the premise of the EQT.

Whereas Mercedes would not promote any electrical vans within the U.S. at current, the state of affairs will change in 2023 when the automaker launches an electric version of its Sprinter full-size van. The electrical Sprinter for the U.S. will probably be constructed at Mercedes’ plant in Charleston, South Carolina.

As for the EQT, or any T-Class variant for that matter, Mercedes hasn’t introduced plans for the U.S. Given the desire for crossovers right here, we would not rely on any of the vans reaching native showrooms.
