Recently we tested electric Mercedes-Benz EQV at the Swedish training ground, which is located next to the Arctic Circle. There, the new model was tested at sub-zero temperatures to find out how it behaves in the cold.

The appearance of the world’s first premium electric minivan, as the German automaker is positioning the EQV, is expected in the middle of this year. Developing it, German engineers took the V-Class as a basis.

The novelty has an electric motor with a capacity of 204 hp, powered by a battery of 100 kW / h. The power reserve of the electric van will be 400 km, and its “maximum speed” – 160 km / h.

 The purpose of the tests in Sweden was to check the effect of cold on the functioning of the electric car engine, the behavior of cars on ice and snowy roads. In addition, in the cold we tested a fast EQV charger, which allows you to charge the battery up to 80% in 45 minutes.

The estimated cost of short-base EQV in the European market is approximately 70 thousand euros
