The e-Sprinter is available in a variety of body styles, including panel van, crew van, and chassis cab.

The e-Sprinter offers exceptional practicality with a spacious and versatile load area. The standard load volume is 11.2 cubic metres, which can be expanded to a maximum of 16.4 cubic metres with optional seating and load floor configurations. The load area is also equipped with a variety of tie-down points and cargo hooks to secure loads securely.

The e-Sprinter is also surprisingly well-equipped for passenger comfort. The driver's seat is generously padded and adjustable to accommodate drivers of all heights and sizes. The passenger area is also spacious, with comfortable seating for up to six occupants. The dashboard is logically laid out and features a variety of storage compartments for keeping belongings organized.

Interior and Trims

The new Mercedes-Benz e-Sprinter comes with a spacious and well-designed interior that's sure to please both drivers and passengers. The dashboard is clean and uncluttered, with easy-to-use controls that are within easy reach of the driver. There's also plenty of storage space, including a large glovebox, door pockets, and a storage compartment under the front seats. The seats are comfortable and supportive, even on long journeys. The driver's seat is adjustable in all directions, and there's also a height-adjustable steering column. The instrument panel is clear and easy to read, and there's a large infotainment system that's compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There's also a reversing camera and a park assist system to make parking easier.

One trim level available: Progressive

The e-Sprinter is available in only a single Progressive specification and features a dual passenger seat, a heated seat for the driver, air-conditioning, an audio system equipped with DAB and Bluetooth capabilities, keyless start functionality, autonomous emergency braking, crosswind assist, attention assist, 270-degree rear doors, a ply-lined load area, and Mercedes Pro Connect accessible through a dedicated app.

Power and Performance

The new Mercedes-Benz e-Sprinter is powered by a rear-mounted electric motor that produces 134 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This is enough power to propel the van from 0 to 60 mph in around 13 seconds, which is on par with many petrol-powered vans of a similar size. The e-Sprinter also features a regenerative braking system that helps to recapture energy when you decelerate, which can further improve the van's range.

The e-Sprinter is available with two different battery packs: a 56 kWh battery and a 113 kWh battery. The 56 kWh battery is the standard option, and it offers a range of up to 104 miles. The 113 kWh battery is optional, and it offers a range of up to 186 miles. The actual range will vary depending on a number of factors, such as driving style, temperature, and payload.
