Electric van alert: Don't miss the 2020 Mercedes EQV that just debuted as the first all-electric premium van in the world. Check its all-new features here!

Mercedes will never cease to amaze us here at Naijauto with its unending and surprising innovations in the global automotive industry.

Just at the recent Geneva Motor Show 2019 held five months ago, the automaker revealed its near-production Mercedes-Benz EQV Concept prototype, that has now morphed into a vehicle in mass-production.

Mercedes-Benz EQV design overview

The German automaker describes this new addition to its EQ lineup as the company’s “first all-electric premium MPV”. The automaker also promises that this new 2020 Mercedes EQV will deliver a perfect combo of “impressive driving abilities” with emissions-free mobility.

Mercedes claims that this new passenger van is expected to celebrate its worldwide public premiere from September 12 to 22 during the Frankfurt Motor Show for this year 2019.

When you visually examine this new Mercedes EQV, it is practically identical in appearance to the concept prototype that was previously revealed 4months ago. That is really good news because it retained the exact same balanced and sleek design as seen in the concept version. This does not only make the new van stay true to the familiar Mercedes’ bus roots alone but it also makes the van incorporate some modern touches of Mercedes like the new swept-back headlights that come with the latest running light (integrated LED daytime).

The new 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV will accommodate up to 8 passengers comfortably

If you examine the cabin of the new EQV, the story still remains the same as the interior design is just exactly the same as the concept prototype displayed 4months ago at Geneva. The cabin space will comfortably accommodate as much as 7 to 8 passengers depending on the type of seat configuration a customer opts for.

One interesting thing though is the presence of a traditional “key” used to replace the expected engine “Start/Stop” button in this new EQV. This is somewhat surprising and strange to see in a vehicle that is all-electric.

Standard features on 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV

Below is a brief highlight of some notable features present in this new 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQV:

  • 12.3-inch infotainment touch display with MBUX (plus available Voice control and special mobile App)
  • Onboard smart water-cooled 11 kW charger (AC charging at public charging stations or at home)
  • 90-kWh Li-ion battery pack power supply unit
  • Charging port in the front bumper
  • All-electric drive system fixed on the front axle produces 201hp (150 kW) with a promised 249-miles (400km) distance coverage between two charges
