Mercedes Unveils Zero-Emission Electric Vito Van

Mercedes is expanding its lineup of electric vehicles very very fast. And this program applies to all models with no exception, whether it’s the supercar SLS AMG E-Cell, or the Vito which is a commercial van!

By releasing the Vito E-Cell, Mercedes is the first car manufacturer to produce an all-electric commercial vehicle.

Vito’s electric powertrain develops 70 kW and maximum torque of 280 Nm which gives it a top speed of 80 km/h, and a range of 130 km. These are not significant numbers, but it makes sense when you realize that it’s a Zero-Emission vehicle and it’s also more comfortable than normal vans mainly because it makes no noise at all.

Mercedes-Benz will deliver 100 Vito E-CELL vans to customers between August and December this year. Half each will be taken into operation in Berlin and Stuttgart, and further units will be used in the Basque region of Spain early next year, i.e. on the homeground of the Vito E-CELL. The main areas of operation are therefore concentrated on densely populated areas. These not only differ in size but also in topographical terms, ensuring different operating conditions and therefore additional findings.

The customers concerned are predominantly fleet operators. Both the fleet managers and drivers are being intensively trained in the control and operation of the Vito E-CELL, and carefully familiarised with its special features. This also extends to separate operating instructions for the Vito E-CELL.
