Mercedes premieres premium Concept EQV people mover

Is only thing missing from the automotive market a premium-level people mover that runs on batteries? Mercedes-Benz’ new Concept EQV aims to find out. With a 400-km range, a luxurious interior, and a promise to go to production very soon, the Concept EQV might highlight a hitherto unexploited market.

Mercedes unveiled the Concept EQV at the Geneva Motor Show to a surprised audience, as no one was expecting a luxury minivan to be the focus of Benz in Switzerland. Based visually on the Metris vans sold globally, the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQV looks close to production. So close, in fact, that Mercedes is promising a production-ready prototype will be showcased at the upcoming Frankfurt show, closer to the automaker’s home turf.
