Mercedes-Benz Vans Australia Begins Electric Roll Out in 2022

This is planned to start in the second half of 2022 with the introduction of the mid-size eVito panel van, eVito Tourer and EQV. The eSprinter is intended to follow in or around 2024 when the next generation eSprinter van becomes available. Thanks to the flexibility of our global vans production strategy, we intend to offer both conventional and battery-electric vans side by side, and are preparing to switch to electric-only in the future, when customer and market demand determines it.  

Globally, Mercedes-Benz Vans is systematically driving forward the electrification of its product portfolio with emission-free electric drives, contributing to sustainable mobility in the transport of people and goods. The goal is a holistic electric solution that not only reduces the strain on cities and the environment, but also offers our customers genuine benefits.

In Australia, sales of electric vehicles are on the rise and the electrification of vans is increasingly becoming an attractive proposition for light commercial fleet operators who are looking to show commitment to sustainable practices and reduced total cost of ownership.     

Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Vans, Diane Tarr, said this is a very exciting step towards a more sustainable future for Mercedes-Benz Vans and our customers in Australia. We are confident that the electric drive will gain more prevalence here over the coming years. As it does, we will be ready with a strong customer-centric electric product portfolio, which offers the potential to assist customers with lowering their operating costs and reducing their environmental impact.

Full local specifications and pricing will be communicated closer to launch. However key European technical data for the EQV, and eVito Tourer can be found below.  The eVito and next-generation eSprinter technical data relevant for Australia is not yet available.
