on sale now mercedes announces pricing for esprinter electric van

Ford rules the electric van market in the U.S. with its E-Transit, but Mercedes won’t be far behind. Its eSprinter is launching now, and the automaker announced pricing for the electric workhorse, which starts at around $72,000. Higher-output variant will sell for $75,316.

Mercedes’ eSprinter will offer a range of up to 249 miles and a 170-inch wheelbase with a high-roof body style. The van comes with a 113-kWh battery and a 50-kW charging speed, allowing a charge from 10 to 80 percent in around 40 minutes.

The eSprinter offers three drive modes and a five-stage regenerative braking system. It uses an electric motor mounted on the rear axle that produces either 134 or 201 horsepower (100 or 150 kW). The motor offers a temporary maximum torque function with up to 295 pound-feet for up to 30 seconds.

Mercedes equips MBUX infotainment with voice controls, and navigation is available. Owners can use the Mercedes app to pre-condition the van’s climate controls, and the eSprinter can maintain its interior temperature while parked, which is especially useful for people who enter and exit the van frequently, such as delivery drivers.

Like other commercial vans, the Mercedes eSprinter can be upfitted with various storage and interior configurations. Owners can upgrade with wood floors, shelves, and other customization options, and the van offers 488 cubic feet of interior space to play with.

    Here's your urban work and delivery van! At least if you're willing to pay a premium for faster rusting, compared with Ford.

      Ah yes, those Fords that are rusting by the time they get to the dealer really show how advanced rustproofing has gotten.

    How does a 50KW charger allow a 113KW battery to be charged in 40 minutes (70% charge). Surely it would be well over an hour.

    The driver can recharge the battery during his lunch break... if he ever gets one.

    Range is getting close to marginally acceptable. Far better than the pathetic range on the Ford Transit Mach E.

    But it’s a Mercedes which means it’s junk. It’s a Sprinter which means it’s junk, and it’s an EV which means it’s junk. It’s a triple threat of junk.
