“I reckon posh vans like the EQV are becoming just as fashionable as SUVs. If you don't believe me, drive through any posh glamping site in Cornwall. With an electric powertrain they make even more sense as they are refined and cheaper to run.”

Tom Says

“Forward-thinking taxi firms with short-hop executive airport transfers take note: the EQV could be for you. Ok, so it’s a specific set of requirements, but you can’t fault the ambition. Also good for big families who like electric vans. Again, pretty specific...”

Got questions? We've put together the most frequently-asked topics   below. If there's something we haven't answered here or in the review   then let us know on our contact page.  

How much is the EQV to buy?

The starting price of the EQV is currently £70,655 before any options. 

Which EQV is the best? 

We’d suggest the EQV Sport Premium, because it adds useful things like electrically-adjusted memory seats up front, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and a useful 360 degree parking camera for not much additional outlay over the entry-level Sport model. 

How far can I drive in the EQV?

The quoted maximum range is 213 miles for the Sport model, with the Sport Premium and Sport Premium Plus quoted at 211 miles. We’d suggest stopping at about 180 miles or earlier for a top up, though, the sat nav helping with planning your route and charging strategy. 

Can the EQV be had with eight seats? 

In Europe the EQV can be had with the same eight-seat layout as is offered here in the standard diesel V-Class. There’s no mention of it in Mercedes-Benz’s UK brochures, and we imagine it’s down to keeping the weight down. That extra seat adding some mass to an already hefty machine. 

When is the EQV available? 

Mercedes-Benz will be only too happy to take a deposit from you now. Deliveries should start in this final quarter of 2020, but we’ll not likely see a high volume coming to the UK until early-mid 2021.
