Ready to change the game? The new eVito is packed with cutting-edge integrated technology, intelligent driver safety features and a fully sustainable operation to keep businesses moving. Game-changing, innovative and available for purchase at Euro Commercials. The all new Mercedes-Benz eVito Electric Panel Van, combines modern mobility with functionality, safety and comfort. Vehicle range up to 93 mile range.
Choosing an eVito Electric Panel Van could start to pay off straight away. The highly efficient electric drive means the eVito already matches the total cost of ownership of a diesel or petrol van. You can maximise your cost savings by taking advantage of lower overnight charging costs and by optimising power consumption while driving. To maximise battery performance, the eVito uses a process called recuperation that recovers energy when the vehicle is decelerating. You can adjust the recuperation mode with the gearshift paddles and the greater the recuperation, the faster you decelerate. Find out more below.
The eVito comes with a 3 year unlimited mileage vehicle warranty, which matches the entire Mercedes-Benz Vans range. It also benefits from an 8 year, 100,000km battery warranty giving you additional peace of mind. As you would expect it has been fully tested and has passed our comprehensive winter test battling temperatures of up to -30°C. It has extensive corrosion protection with a fully galvanised body.
As the vehicle batteries are housed in the underbody of the vehicle, they don’t compromise any load space in the cargo area. The L2 variant has a maximum payload of up to 923kg and up to 6m3 loading space and the L3 variant can carry 898 kg in its generous 6.6m3 space. With twin side loading doors and a low loading height, you can handle even the most difficult loading and unloading tasks with ease.
The eVito Electric Panel Van also comes with Mercedes PRO connect as standard, with many features free for 2 years. This digital solution provides valuable information about vehicle functionality which can be accessed remotely - reducing down time and increasing efficiency on the road.
Mercedes PRO connect monitors repairs and servicing requirements meaning workshop visits can be scheduled well in advance. It also includes dedicated electric features such as locating charging points whilst optimising route planning, remotely checking the charge status of your vehicle and pre-conditioning cabin temperature ahead of your journey (drawing on mains power, not your battery).
The drive system includes the electric motor, the high-voltage battery, the power electronics and the charger. The electric motor powers the front wheels and draws the energy required from the high-voltage battery. This is primarily charged from the power supply and can be further fed during vehicle use by the use of recuperation thanks to reclaimed energy.
The intelligent operating strategy ensures as efficient utilisation as possible: with 3 drive programs and 4 recuperation stages, the electrical consumption and thus also the range can be optimised. The 3 drive programs "E+", "E" and "C" are selected via the drive program switch in the centre console, the 4 recuperation levels "D-", "D", "D+" and "D++" via the steering wheel gearshift paddle.
During recuperation, energy is reclaimed if the vehicle is delayed. For example, the battery charges when going downhill, instead of losing the energy when braking in the form of heat. The respective setting for the drive program and recuperation level is displayed in the display of the instrument cluster. With this route-based operating-mode strategy the economy of the vans can be further optimised with electric drive in daily operation on the road.
The eVito’s high-voltage battery system can be charged in around 6 hours, from 0 to 100% using a Type II charging connector with an output of up to 7.4 kW. A 4m charging cable is included as standard with an optional 8m cable also available. Whilst charging, the central locking system of the vehicle secures the connector.
Whilst out and about, Mercedes PRO connect constantly searches for nearby charging stations en route.
A high voltage system that’s highly protected. The eVito Electric Panel Van not only completes the same vehicle trials and crash tests as the standard Vito, it also benefits from a protective frame that surrounds the powertrain, the high-voltage battery and the high-voltage cables.
A further protective plate shields the battery system from below.
All high-voltage cables are safely insulated and instantly recognisable from their orange cabling. In addition, the vehicle constantly monitors whether the high voltage cables are properly connected. If a problem or fault is detected, the high-voltage system is automatically switched off. This means, for example, if you’re involved in an accident and the airbags are activated, the vehicle de-energises immediately. For rescue workers, ‘a rescue separation point’ is installed under the front passenger seat, which enables the power supply to be instantly cut off. In all other circumstance, only trained technicians should work on the high-voltage system – even in the event of a breakdown.
The eVito Electric Panel Van is perfect for last mile, stop/start urban driving – use our eVAN Ready app to analyse your daily driving routines and find out if the eVito has a suitable range for you.
