The Mercedes-Benz EQV is the first electric "MPV", or minivan. And it's a very premium start for this segment, burnished with all the Germanic tech toys and refinements you'd expect, even in a Mercedes-Benz saloon. It's got some pretty strong electric chops too, range flirting towards 200 miles, which impresses for such a large vehicle, while 110kW rapid charging adds greatly to its utility. With such a high price it's only going to appeal to businesses operating executive shuttle services etc, but turning these journeys zero emission will benefit us all.

Charging Details

Charging time for a Mercedes-Benz EQV

The table below shows the estimated time to charge your EQV from empty to full. For rapid charging, we show the time to charge from 20% - 80%, as charging tends to slow outside this range to protect the battery.

* Based on Pod Point estimates, charging time can differ based on the ambient temperature, the state of the battery (e.g. empty or half full) and variation in charging rate. Max charging rate may also be limited by the vehicle.
** Range per hour is the number of miles you can expect to get from an hour of charging at the relevant rate.

CO2 emissions from UK grid electricity usage (EV Made Easy calculated)*55 gCO2/km

* This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2021 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
