The new Mercedes-Benz eSprinter is initially being offered as a panel van and a permissible gross mass of 3500 kilograms. Its maximum loading volume is 10.5 m3, the same as for the Sprinter with a combustion engine. As with the entry-level diesel engine, the electric drive in the eSprinter drives the front wheels with an output of 85 kW and a torque figure of up to 295 newton metres. A flexible payload and battery concept moreover allow adaptation to individual needs for practical use. The range with a utilisable battery capacity of 47 kWh (installed: 55 kWh) is 168 kilometres with a maximum load of 891 kilograms. The range has been determined on the basis of Directive 692/2008/EC. The range is dependent on the vehicle configuration. The actual range is also dependent on the individual driving style, road and traffic conditions, the outside temperature, use of the air conditioning system/heating and may differ. A second battery option takes into account other priorities in the use parameters: the configuration with a utilisable capacity of 35 kWh (installed: 41 kWh) allows a range of 115 kilometres. In turn, the maximum load rises to 1045 kilograms. The integrated quick-charge function also ensures flexibility, which enables around 80% of the energy to be recharged within 30 minutes. The maximum speed can be configured to suit the task in hand: the maximum speed can be set at 80 km/h, 100 km/h or even as much as 120 km/h.
