Mercedes-Benz’s electric van: the new eVito has a range of around 150 kilometres
Even in unfavourable conditions such as low outside temperatures and with a full load, it will have a range of 100 kilometres, Daimler says. The mid-size van from Mercedes-Benz is configured for city-centre use by delivery companies, tradespeople and public transport providers. The battery can be fully charged in around six hours, while an output of 84 kilowatts and up to 300 newton metres of torque deliver dynamic performance.
When it comes to top speed, the customer can choose between two options: A maximum speed of 80 kilometres per hour fulfils all requirements in city traffic and urban areas, while conserving energy and increasing range. If more speed is needed, the customer can choose a top speed of up to 120 kilometres per hour.
The electric model can accommodate a maximum payload of 1073 kilograms and a maximum load volume of 6.6 cubic metre. Installation of the battery beneath the vehicle contributes to the unrestricted usability of the entire load space. The maximum gross vehicle weight stands at 3.2 tons. (nhp)
