2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV Is The Brand’s First
Electric Premium MPV The electric V-Class is here with a new name,
slightly different styling, a 201 HP motor and a 252-mile range. Mercedes-Benz has taken the 2019 Frankfurt
Motor Show by storm with a range of electric vehicles from their new EQ sub-brand. One of them sits the EQV, a zero-emission
version of the V-Class. Presented online last month, the EQV is now
ready to greet customers at the event, flaunting its visual makeover that’s very similar
to the study that we saw earlier this year. Blink and you might miss the changes that
mostly concern the front end, although there’s also a reworked rear bumper and less colorful
wheels. Also Read: A Sneak Photo Preview From The

is extremely customizable and can be fitted with individual or bench rear seats. Mercedes has added the new MBUX infotainment
system with a 10-inch display, while further communication with the vehicle can be done
remotely, as users will be able to pre-heat or pre-cool the cabin and set a destination
and departure time. Depending on how big the family is, the EQV
is offered in two different lengths. The 5,140 mm (202.4 in) variant has a 3,200
mm (126 in) wheelbase, and the 5,370 mm (211.4 in) model’s wheelbase is a whole 230 mm
(9 in) longer. With the 90 kWh lithium-ion battery fully
charged, the zero-emission MPV has a maximum range of 405 km (252 miles). It supports 110 kW fast charging, so filling
it up from 10 to 80 percent takes 45 minutes. Performance is not bad either, with the EQV
being able to reach a top speed of 160 km (99 mph) thanks to the 204 PS (201 hp / 150
kW) and 362 Nm (267 lb-ft) front-mounted electric motor.
