The Mercedes-Benz EQV is a front-drive electric passenger van from the German manufacturer. It is a premium vehicle created on the basis of a V-class minibus. The concept of the future electric car was presented in Frankfurt in the spring of 2019. Among the main advantages of the car should be allocated high environmental friendliness, comfort, practicality, as well as good mileage.
If we talk about the technical component, the car is based on an electric motor. Together with the transmission, power electronics and cooling system it forms a single compact module, which is located above the front axle. The power of the motor is 204 hp and the torque is equal to 362 Nm. Thanks to this, the environmentally friendly car is able to reach a top speed of 160 km/h. The battery capacity of 90 kWh is located in the floor of the electric car. It provides a range of 400 km on the WLTP cycle. The location of the battery has a positive impact on the stability of the car on the road, as well as on its driving characteristics. The charging socket is located on the front bumper on the left, it is not always convenient for the car owner. As for charging the battery, the driver has several options here: at home with a wall box or a standard socket, as well as at a public station. It will take about 10 hours to get a full charge from a household outlet. And if you use a quick-charge station, it will take the driver much less time to restore the battery 10 to 80% – only 45 minutes.
The model is equipped with a 10-inch screen of an innovative multimedia system, where the main controls of the vehicle are located. Also built into the car is an infotainment system that combines innovative connectivity features and a voice control system. Different driving modes can be selected here, as well as a special function that is responsible for energy recovery. In addition, the owner of the van has at his disposal a special application called Mercedes me. Using it, you can remotely control the car, adjust the temperature in the cabin, calculate and track the route, as well as monitor the battery level.
Visually, the car’s design follows the same styling as the other electric models in this line. However, at the same time, there are elements of classic Mercedes-Benz cars. The electric van is equipped with LED headlights, an original grille with chrome ribs, 18-inch wheel rims and unusual patterns. On different parts of the body you can see brand labels, indicating belonging to the environmental family EQ.
The car is quite roomy, its length is 5370 mm and wheelbase is 3430 mm.
Inside there are six separate seats, but this is not the limit. On request, the number of seats can be increased to eight. The dashboard has blue LED lighting, and the surfaces of the dashboard, seat backs and door cards are leather trimmed. The interior clearly shows attention to detail and the build quality is top notch. The van has a spacious luggage compartment, which can be used for large luggage or sports equipment. The total volume of the compartment is 1,030 liters.

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
A public charging station is required to use the highest possible charging rate. The EVSE/charging station’s charging capacity affects how long it takes to fully charge the battery. The table below shows all possible options for fully charging the Mercedes EQV 300 Long.
In Europe, plugging an electric car into an outlet is often as easy as plugging it into a household outlet, but there are differences from country to country. The table below shows the different ways to charge the Mercedes EQV 300 Long, but in some countries some chargers may not be available.

Fast Charging (10 -> 80%)
If you want to enjoy driving an electric car, one of the most important features to consider is the number of miles per hour the car can travel while charged. This is called the “range” of the car. All electric cars have a certain range, even if they are 100% charged. This is because they do not have an internal combustion engine to lean on if you need to drive a long distance.
