  • eVito panel van and eVite Tourer
  • eSprinter
  • EQV
  • eCitan and EQT

In the second half of 2023, the company will introduce its next-generation eSprinter which will be fully electric based on Mercedes-Benz’s EVP platform. Which will be produced at three sites –

  1. Düsseldorf, Germany (panel van version only)
  2. Ludwigsfelde, Germany (chassis model only)
  3. Ladson/North Charleston, South Carolina

By 2025, Mercedes-Benz intends to launch a completely new all-electric modular and architecture called the VAN.EA for its medium-sized and large-sized vehicles.

Under a new venture agreement, the new facility plans to produce two models – the first will be based on the VAN.EA and the second will be based on the Revision Light Van platform.

The Düsseldorf plant, which is the largest Mercedes-Benz van production plant, is also set to produce a larger electric van based on the VAN.EA: open body style (platform for bodybuilders or flatbeds). The company intends to invest a total of €400 million ($402 million) to handle the new EV.
