DPD is the first UK customer for the all new, fully electric eVito from Mercedes-Benz Vans.
The parcels delivery company has commissioned 10 long bodied versions of the mid-sized model which employs an electric motor that channels its 116hp output to the front wheels via a single speed automatic transmission. The column mounted selector features C, E and E+ settings (Comfort, Eco and Extended range).
The vehicle’s 41kWh battery is mounted in a protective housing beneath the cargo floor, and does not compromise the load area. Fully recharged in six hours, it gives the eVito a range of approximately 93 miles. This is supplemented by recuperative energy technology, but will be reduced by constant driving with a full load.
