New Mercedes-Benz eVito

Efficiency Choosing a Mercedes-Benz eVito could start to pay off straight away. The highly efficient electric drive means the eVito already matches the total cost of ownership of a diesel or petrol van.

The new drive system includes an electric motor, high-voltage battery, power electronics and the charger. The electric motor powers the front wheels and pulls the energy required from the high-voltage battery. eVito is primarily charged from the power supply and can be further fed during vehicle use by the use of recuperation thanks to reclaimed energy. During recuperation, energy is reclaimed if the vehicle is delayed. For example, the battery charges when going downhill, instead of losing the energy when braking in the form of heat.

Safety A high voltage system that’s highly protected The eVito not only completes the same vehicle trials and crash tests as the standard model, it also benefits from a protective frame that surrounds the powertrain, high-voltage battery and the high-voltage cables. A further protective plate also shields the battery system from below.

All high-voltage cables are safely insulated and instantly recognisable from their orange casing. In addition, the eVito continuously monitors whether the high voltage cables are properly connected. If a problem or fault is detected, the system is automatically switched off. This means that should you be involved in an accident and the airbags are activated, the vehicle de-energises immediately.
