"The Mercedes-Benz eSprinter underlines our claim to 'Lead in Electric'
and kicks off the next stage of our electrification strategy.
ts versatility and flexibility make the new eSprinter the ideal vehicle for a wide range of applications."
Mathias Geisen, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans

At market launch in North America, the eSprinter will be available as a 170'' wheelbase cargo van with a high roof equipped with a 113 kilowatt hour (kWh) battery (usable capacity). Equipped with the largest battery available, the electric range, based on a simulation using the WLTP cycle, is up to 440 kilometers (~273 miles)2. The simulated range based on the WLTP city cycle is up to 530 kilometers (~329 miles)2. This extended range makes the vehicle ideal for both daily urban use as well as longer journeys. The lithium/iron phosphate technology eliminates the use of any cobalt or nickel and is ideal for light commercial vehicles due to its durability. Active thermal management improves efficiency and a heat pump is standard.

Offering a cargo capacity of 13.8 cubic metres (488 cubic feet) and with a permissible gross vehicle weight of up to 4,250 kg (9,370 lbs), the rear-wheel-drive eSprinter is as practical as any of its siblings with internal combustion engines. eXpertUpfitter solutions, such as shelving systems, workbenches or heavy-duty wood floors for heavy loads offer further available customization options for the load compartment to upfit the eSprinter to a mobile workshop or a spacious delivery van.

A modular layout for maximum versatility

The all-new eSprinter is based on a new concept consisting of three modules, making it easy to adapt the platform to a multitude of vehicle variants. The front module contains all high-voltage components and can be combined with all variants regardless of wheelbase and battery size.

The integrated high-voltage battery is located in the centre module, tucked into a robust battery housing in the underbody to save space. This location results in a low center of gravity, which positively influences vehicle handling and helps increase driving safety. The rear module houses the compact and powerful electric motor, which drives the rear axle.

The electric powertrain (eATS)

The main components of the electric powertrain in the all-new eSprinter feature two new developments: the efficient motor and the advanced electric rear axle. Both are installed for the first time in a battery-electric van from Mercedes-Benz.

The permanent magnet synchronous motor (PSM), which weighs only 286 lbs., is characterized by high efficiency and optimized thermal management. The motor is available in power levels of either 100 or 150 kilowatts of peak output and delivers a torque of up to 295 lb.-ft for at least 30 seconds.

Supporting the driver in various ways

The eSprinter supports the driver in multiple ways due to the latest in-car technology along with the cloud-based services of the Mercedes me connect3 digital ecosystem. To start, the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) from Mercedes-Benz passenger cars is now offered as an option for the eSprinter. Features such as the "Hey Mercedes" voice control assistant are available to van customers, as are extensive personalization options.

Intelligent safety and assistance systems

The standard Active Brake Assist, which can provide braking support in an emergency, is just one of many assistance systems4 offered. Other features include optional Blind Spot Assist and ATTENTION ASSIST. An additional interior highlight is the optional digital rear view mirror offering the driver unobstructed views of the outside rear of the vehicle and a distinct advantage when in reverse. With this option, the conventional rear-view mirror installed on the windshield also serves as a digital rear-view mirror transmitting an image from a High Dynamic Range camera installed in the exterior rear end of the roof. The mirror is equipped with light sensors at the front and rear and automatically adjusts the brightness of the display to ambient conditions.

Various features for increased efficiency

High tech not only applies to safety systems: Three different drive modes allow for customization of performance and energy consumption of the all-new eSprinter. "Comfort" delivers a full complement of performance and torque. "Economic" limits engine power for more efficiency and "Maximum Range" further reduces engine output along with limiting the use of features such as climate control to optimize mileage to a maximum. Regenerative braking, which converts kinetic energy into electrical energy, also helps to maximize range.

There are five selectable recuperation levels to choose from (D-, D, D+, D++ and 'D Auto').  The level of recuperation can be adjusted with the paddles found on either side of the steering wheel. An advantage of the sophisticated automatic function 'D Auto' is that the vehicle automatically defines the energy recovery rate based on the traffic situation. The system automatically adjusts the recuperation strength to ensure optimized recuperation. The ECO Assist in the dashboard prompts the driver when to disengage from the pedal and then the vehicle can automatically choose the right strength of recuperation.

Mercedes me connect services such as the optional "Navigation with Electric Intelligence" 3,5,7 enhance the electric vehicle ownership experience even further, as it calculates an optimized route including charging stops in real time depending on the current traffic situation and topography of the route. This feature also calculates the best possible charging strategy to either get to the destination as quickly as possible or to have a particular desired state of charge remaining upon arrival.

Convenient charging

The all-new eSprinter is capable of charging with both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC). The on-board charger, which converts the current in the vehicle when charging with alternating current such as at a Level 2 charger, has a maximum charging power of 9.6 kilowatts. To minimize charging times at DC fast Charge locations, the all-new eSprinter is capable of charging at 115 kilowatts or from 10 to 80 percent of full capacity and is estimated to take just over 40 minutes6.

Payment at the charging station is convenient with the Mercedes me connect service "Mercedes me Charge"3,7 which integrates charging point operators such as ChargePoint, BC Hydro, Electric Circuit, and FLO into a single network. With access to more than 20,000 public charging points in Canada and 85,000 in North America, Mercedes me Charge is one of the largest integrated charging networks in North America. Mercedes me Charge provides transparency and control – whether it's knowing the availability and estimated cost of charging stations along your route, starting a charging session remotely, paying for charging through one interface, or tracking your charging and payment history.

Fleet Depot Charging is crucial for fleets of all sizes. That's why Mercedes-Benz Vans has partnered with ChargePoint to fulfill our fleet customers' needs. Whether your fleet requires charging hardware or software-based tools, our collaboration with ChargePoint provides a complete solution to streamline EV management and take your electric fleet to the next level, including enhanced insights into your fleet operations.

Comprehensive service package included

The all-new eSprinter comes with an integrated comprehensive service package intended to reduce the total cost of ownership while ensuring high uptime. This includes maintenance in accordance with the Operating Instructions, Service Booklet, and manufacturer's specifications for the first four services during the first four years8. This coverage includes regular inspections of the high-voltage components and other vehicle parts and functions.

The Mercedes-Benz battery warranty applies for eight years or 160,000 total kms. Customers may also purchase an additional battery certificate in which Mercedes-Benz guarantees that the maximum remaining capacity of the high-voltage batteries in the battery pack will not be less than 70 percent of the initial capacity for an additional 140,000 kms, for the earlier of eight years or up to 300,000 kms total9.

Available for order at Canadian dealerships now

The all-new eSprinter is now available for order at Canadian dealerships with an all-inclusive cash selling price of $107,2731. In the field of battery-electric vehicles, leasing is particularly relevant for customers: In Canada, customers can enjoy special lease or finance rates as low as 5.99%10 for new or loyal customers.

Production for the global markets underway

The modular concept of the new eSprinter allows for maximum synergies in production and therefore corresponding economies of scale. The production sites of the all-new eSprinter are the Mercedes-Benz Vans plants in North Charleston, SC/USA, Düsseldorf and Ludwigsfelde, Germany. In total, Mercedes-Benz is investing around 350 million Euros in the new eSprinter from 2021 to 2024 with around 150 million Euros of that being invested in the adjustment of production at the three plants. As sustainability is a central guiding principle at Mercedes-Benz, the all-new eSprinter is produced net carbon neutral.
