The Canadian market eagerly awaits the all-new eSprinter from Mercedes-Benz Vans, marking its foray as the first fully-electric van from the brand in North America. Set to launch in a 170” long wheelbase cargo version with a high-roof configuration, it boasts a 113-kWh battery that assures efficient delivery combined with cutting-edge technical specifications. Priced with a base MSRP of $97,990, it offers a WLTP range exceeding 400 km which works out to just about 325 km EPA. This much-anticipated electric van will be available for purchase from Canadian dealerships starting at the end of October 2023 and is eligible for the federal government’s iMHZEV EV program, which provides a purchase incentive of up to $10,000. Moreover, it might also qualify for provincial incentive programs4.

A distinction from its traditional counterparts, the eSprinter features a battery-electric drive system. This allows Canadian businesses to pivot towards a more sustainable fleet operation with a zero-emission van that carries the signature Mercedes-Benz star.

Powering this vehicle is the durable lithium/iron phosphate battery technology, which has the advantage of not utilizing cobalt or nickel. Designed for endurance, the eSprinter can be charged at a wallbox with an on-board AC charger’s maximum output of 9.6 kilowatts. For a quicker boost, the DC fast-charging stations offer a standard maximum output of 50 kW. Yet, with an optional upgrade, DC Fast Charging can surge up to 115 kW, enabling the battery to charge from approximately 10% to 80% in just over 40 minutes.

The eSprinter’s electric powertrain showcases a couple of new introductions: the efficient motor and an innovative electric rear axle. A first in Mercedes-Benz’s battery-electric vans, the permanent magnet synchronous motor, weighing around 286 lb., is recognized for its high efficiency and thermal management optimization. Available in two power levels – 100 or 150 kilowatts (136 hp or 204 hp) – it consistently delivers a torque of up to 295 lb.-ft. for at least 30 seconds.

Inside the eSprinter, Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) offers a new-age software generation rooted in Artificial Intelligence, ensuring intuitive and seamless navigation. Additionally, the optional digital rear-view mirror serves as a boon for drivers, providing unobstructed rear views, especially beneficial when reversing.

The eSprinter is versatile in its functionality. Mercedes-Benz Canada’s trusted eXpertUpfitter partners present an array of customization options, transforming the vehicle into a mobile workshop or a commodious delivery van, accommodating up to 14 m3 loads with a permissible gross weight of 4.25 tonnes.

With the upcoming release of the eSprinter, Mercedes-Benz continues its tradition of innovation, merging luxury with the future of sustainable transport.
