Mercedes eVito

Mercedes-Benz will add electric drive to all its commercial vans, its owner Daimler AG has announced.

The German manufacturer has also started taking orders for the eVito, a new mid-size van with a range of around 93 miles and a top speed of 74mph that is expected to hit the market next year. 

Volker Mornhinweg, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, said: “We are convinced by the necessity of electric drive in our vans, especially in city-centre applications. 

“The eVito is the starting point and will be followed by the new generation of our Sprinter as well as the Citan.”
