Mercedes-Benz Vans today presented their new electric vehicle concept called the ‘Sustaineer’.
The all-electric van based on the Mercedes-Benz eSprinter has innovations and technical solutions on board that have been “designed for possible series production”.
The name Sustaineer is an artificial word made up of the terms Sustainability and Pioneer. It is intended to pave the way for more sustainable urban delivery transport.
With the technologies onboard, the Sustaineer demonstrates how the last mile in the transport business can be covered in a climate-neutral way and how green electricity can be produced, and the air quality in cities can be actively improved.
Mercedes already has a few electric Vehicles for urban delivery. The already electrified portfolio of the Mercedes division includes the eVito panel van, the eSprinter, the eVito Tourer and the EQV.
Next year, smaller, electric vans will also go on sale with the eCitan and the EQT. From the middle of the decade, “all-new vehicle architectures will then be exclusively electric, and Mercedes-Benz Vans is developing a completely new vehicle architecture for this purpose with VAN.EA”, according to an accompanying press release.
